The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

AGS Panel Review

"An excellent fast-paced mash of Thrust and traditional pool, SPA is fiendishly addictive and a must for arcade fans. Suitably lo-fi graphics add to the experience."

6 people commented on this game (newest first):

This is game is great fun and an amazing use of AGS. Just as I was wondering "how the hell did they do that?" I noticed that the creators were kind enough to supply the source code too.

So thanks for the game and the chance to learn more of what AGS is capable of!

Asteroids meets Pool!
Sounds awesome? Is awesome!

This game is terribly addictive and the AI is quite challenging.

Some neat effects despite the simple graphics, this plays well, has a novel idea and is definitely an excellent example of a non-adventure game made with AGS.

I didn't know AGS can do that!

And brilliant gameplay (and music) indeed!
