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

Elodie Major has been running a little indie radio station called Airwave Radio with her friend Zak for 5 years now, and they've manage to win a strong following amongst the people of the small town of Wave.

Recently, however, they've found themselves under pressure from mainstream record labels to play their music, and have resisted quite forcefully, but they haven't seen an end to this attempted interference just yet...

This is the first part in the ~airwave~ series of games.

AGS Panel Review

"An indie music lover's wet dream - complete with a long and very authentic sounding radio broadcast delivered live in one of Ben Chandler's most interesting fictional realities. Nevertheless, some weak puzzles and lack of conclusion to the story (supposed to be just the first episode) put this game's rating down."

Not much I can add to the other comments beyond: largely agreed. :-)

nice themes, funny dialogue and good puzzles. The soundtrack is extremely enjoyable and the dj is hilarious.

Worth of every minute. And actually a tribute to indie music.

This is a really great game.

Nice short game, the continuous radio show in the background is a lovely touch. Hints at a bigger world that I'd like to see more of.

This game has excellent graphics and best immersion I have experienced in a game for a while. I loved the radio background audio with the crazy moderation and the different music styles and all that made up band names and gossip. The puzzles on the other hand were on the weak side. If you are looking for a game with great atmosphere and believable characters - play this! If you are looking for good puzzles this probably isn't for you.

Had high hopes for this one after playing most of Ben's other games, but mostly got annoyed at the reliance on fictional artists (& whoever's on the game's soundtrack) for the humor, the flawed puzzles, and flawed soundtrack. Yes, the soundtrack: it had its moments but the annoying DJ voice and some bad singing voices (on otherwise good music) makes it hard to keep the music playing & to still focus on the dialogue.
The backgrounds are amazing though, and the game world looks really nice - it certainly has some of that uncanny Ben304-atmosphere.

Short game with great atmosphere, amazing "live" radio program, very strong backgrounds and fun characters.

Nevertheless, ~airwave~ has rather weak (and on occasion unfair) puzzles overly relying on certain actions working only at specific points in the game.

Awesome graphics and music. Recommended.

I love the music ... obviously a lot of work went into the soundtrack. It could probably be released by itself!
Thanks!

Ben excels himself yet again with this cool game. Indulge your eyes in the luscious graphics and your ears in the awesome music!

Sweet game, with a lot of athmosphere... reminded me a lot of Fuill Throttle. One little point.. after doing the humming stuff with Damon you have to immediately check the tools or it won't work. If you are travelling first for instance.

Quirky, sweet, fun and beautiful game with great music and design. A must-play.

Awesome little game. Great atmosphere and the radio motif is played to great effect (Hey! A pun!). Definitely worth your time. :)
