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!

About this game

Sometime in the 1950's, somewhere in the U.S.A. In a small town in the middle of nowhere lives Tom Frost, a man who lost everything: his wife, his house, his job. The only two things left are an acoustic guitar and a bunch of scores...
Help Tom to join a band and perform his songs to get fame, love and money. Help him to make his dream come true...

AGS Panel Review

"With having some convoluted puzzles, pixel hunts and inconsistent graphics on one hand, and an engaging and atmospheric story on the other, this game skirts between being frustrating and enjoyable. If you are able to look beyond some of the more frustrating aspects, it is definitely worth playing."

5 people commented on this game (newest first):

I found this game frustratingly addictive. Definitely worth playing, but there are a few pixel hunts, and parts where the game has tried to be unlinear, which scratches your head what to do next, even after looking at the hints page.

Difficulties aside, this is a well thought-out story with a lot of effort thrown in. You'll be able to get a truck and drive it around, and park in various parking spaces, or ride a tram, or a bus, or even other vehicles later on.

Bugs remains.
You get a pass for a club, but can't show the pass to the bouncer.

I found it very very tough (and I've still not finished!). Would have greatly appreciated a walkthrough packed in, or at least some more clues within the game (perhaps in dialogue) - it's a bit of a pixel hunt at times.

The game is wonderfully made though. Really unique kind of story, a fantastic sense of design, interesting environments and atmosphere, and some great music. I can't wait to see what you make next!

Well edited backgrounds and characters. Music was superb.

Difficulties finding places where the hero can be moved.
