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

"Visually strong, with an unusual -though somewhat cumbersome- interface. Simple puzzles help keep things moving, but the writing lacks bite."

3 people commented on this game (newest first):

Lovely visual style and different interface make it feel more modern and original than a generic point and click. Very short but promising if the story is indeed continued at some point.

I like it, Its fairly (sorry if this offends you) cute. after that ending, i cant help but wonder what happened to her mother.

As the person before me said the UI takes a little time to (a couple minutes) get use to but after that i have to say i started to like it.

The little puzzle in the game was also pretty go. (which means i liked it) I look forward to the next game.

Very nice art on this game. The side scrolling game style works nicely, though the lack of light makes it hard to spot some of the items.

The UI gets a while to get used to, but it's nice. The controls could have been smoother, though.

I didn't like the plot. It feels out from a cheap soap opera. I got the impression this was the introduction to a game series, which would be certainly interesting to play, but this prelude was a bit anticlimactic.
