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!

a bit pathetic and with mouldy puzzles, yet an interesting gaming experience.

The game should be a bit longer, and have a visual end.

a very good game but I would have liked seeing a small animation for the end....

bien joué, ton jeu est vraiment trippant, ça fait plaisir de voir des bons jeux français ;)

God, I loved this game. It was so impacting that I'll never forget it, even though the duration was pretty short. I think the translation, even with a few flaws, made the game even better because of the way the main character talked. A line that stood out to me was, "Bread and water, they become nauseating with time." (not sure if I got that exactly right) That somewhat direct translation made the main character altogether much more pitiable and likable. Thanks for making this amazing game!
@AshkEnte: I nearly cried too!

What a great game! Though, it is a pity that the ending was so sad and a little morbid.

The only AGS game I've cried while playing.
The flaws are some French text making its way to the English version as many pointed out and the puzzles after getting out of the house didn't seem well integrated.
But the real thing for me was in the opening and the ending cutscenes.
So brief and minimal but so powerful.

Playing an AGS adventure game dealing with such serious matters is a welcome change.
I have nothing against comedic adventures but I´d appreciate experiencing more games comparable to MOURIR EN MER (great title BTW).
The puzzle design is very well done, especially whilst the game´s first part.

I only have two gripes:

.) Some of the on-screen text is still in French.
.) I think the game should end with the image of a beach and the sea; it probably would leave a bigger impact on the player.

But overall it´s an extremely felicitious project.
Keep up the good work DORCAN !

While graphics and looks of this game is a bit over average, the "feeling" of this game kicks everything. Deep, sad, a bit of horror... Superb.

This game tells a sad tale but does it wonderfully. The graphics are excellent but I found the puzzles quite standard, though good and mostly appropriate.

GREAT!!!! I especially liked the "getting out of the house" business. But for an ugly suffering kid his personality seems mean. When he lies to the conductor for example or when he lies about the hamburger, those parts do not fit with his character methinks. The best part is him getting out of the house, rest are stuffings. Great game non-the-less!

This is an extremely well made and moving game. I enjoyed it a lot, and it's one of my favorite AGS games. There are some flaws in the English translation (i.e. there's no word for "okay" in French, so you'll see the word "good" used out of place at one time), but they can be easily overloooked to play this outstanding game.

Great game and really tough puzzles!
2003-11-15 12:47:20 by Jane
THE best AGS game I've played to date. A great, great game... and with subject matter that likely will never be tackled by a commercial company. Very well done. Save for being over before you want it to be, there's very little bad I can say about this game. Do yourself a huge favor and play it now!

This game, along with PDA, have the only AGS games to actually "move" me to keep playing. Manny' (your friend that moved here dorcan) told me to play it, and helped me thru the french verson, then I played the english one and loved it. If I had 4 thumbs, I'd put them all up
2003-01-27 08:03:02 by mr.panda
One of, or the most moving game made in AGS. The only flaw is that it's way, way too short. If it was longer it would be the favourite on many people's list. It tackles with such hard problems as parent cruelty, disfiguration, death and simple dreams. This is very courageous to include all this matters into a computer game.
