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!

Amazing short adventure!

Good quality short game. Nice sound and visuals. A little glitch with hotspots not showing after inventory opened until you click a mouse button. Overall good stuff. Worth a play.

yes it's by the artist who went on to do Primordia.

This reminds me of Primordia pc game.
Are they related in any way?
Is their a walkthrough?

Thank you. I don't have much time to play adventures recently so this short one was fine for a break.

Hey, nice Mags game!

This game has speech in it, nice difficulty, nice atmosphere. Tad on the short side, even for a Mags game, but as quite a few people have said, worth a download :)

Great entertainment, classic Pinback stuff is this!

Short, visually perfect and good fun :) Wait, is that Grundy's voice? :D

Impressive MAGS game. The visuals are stunning and the atmosphere is great. The puzzles are rather easy and the game is short, but it's well worth the time.

Once again, impressive visuals! The only thing I didn't like about it, is that some objects were hard to find. The puzzles were solid and overall it's a nice, short, athmospheric game.

An incredible looking and sounding game, with a superb overall production quality. The only downside is, that the game is very short and light on puzzles, relying more on simply trying to find the small objects that blend into the background a bit too easily, downgrading the hardest part of the game into finding a small dark object from a big dark background.

Overall a very much recommendable experience that gives the player very little to complain about!

The atmosphere this game has is just incredible. Everything is so convincing and dense. Pinbacks distinctive style is all over the place. A game you have to experience.
The puzzles are very conservative and apparently the game is very short and you should definitely take this time!

Really great game, even though it's very short. Graphics are beautiful, puzzles not too hard. Definitely worth a download.

A really awesome game. It takes like 10 minutes or so to finish, but it's a MAGS entry. The level of polish is extreme, and it features nice voice-acting and graphics.

A very atmospheric (if short) underwater adventure. High quality production values and solid puzzles. Jules Verne would be proud.
