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

SOL is the fifth adventure game by me, Helm, and the second one that has any serious obligation towards the person downloading it to be an enjoyable gaming experience. The setting this time is confined sci-fi, toppled with the omni-present selective amnesia cliche. Download and see.

AGS Panel Review

"Stark graphics, nicely animated in places. Very atmospheric, but muddy gameplay. Fun in places, but ultimately a letdown. "

This is one of the most beautiful games I've played, but it olnly gives a glimpse of the magic of Stavropolous.

'Sol' is the name of our solar system. I can't believe people don't know that.

Superb game, if a little heavy on the ags community references, but that doesn't detract from the game if you don't get them, and if you do, more power to you!

Sweet intro, sweet graphics, sweet game.

SOL is a very solemn and atmospheric game, as well as beautiful.
I would like to compare it with Aaron's epic journey; both are mysterious, completely original and way too short.
