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

## THIS VERSION NO LONGER AVAILABLE! ##
## Full version of Technobabylon coming from Wadjet Eye games in March/April 2015 ##

It's depressing that this prison cell is both bigger and cleaner than my apartment...

Having narrowly escaped death at the hands of a bomber, agoraphobic Trance-addict Latha Sesame finds herself being questioned about the incident by the city's law-enforcement body, CEL.

Having managed to track down his blackmailer, CEL agent Doctor Regis finds himself being diverted to conduct a quick interview with a shaken young woman who may have information about a recent bomb attack related to him and his department...

Can Regis keep his story straight long enough to track down those responsible for his current strife? And can he protect this young woman?

AGS Panel Review

"Solid, but slightly weaker entry in this fascinating sci-fi series. Similarly to Part 1 it offers an "escape the room" setting with quality puzzles. This time around several mini-games have been added to provide variety, but they prove more annoying than fun. The overarching storyline seems to be nicely coming together though - elements of the big puzzle are finally starting to connect."

10 people commented on this game (newest first):

A strong series continues. Back in the "escape the room" vein, this one has puzzles that are somewhat less intuitive and I did have to consult a walkthrough for the first time in the series for some of the steps required but the world remains surprisingly detailed and immersive for such a short game.

Excellent. Really enjoyed it and I don't think it's any less good than the previous two. In fact some definite refinement has gone on. Excellent series. Would gladly donate to the author

In this third installment the two other parts start to connect. This game has the best puzzles of the series till now (the robot programming puzzle strongly reminded me of Castle of Dr. Brain). The atmosphere and story pacing is sadly more like the first part again, but the cutscene manage to make up for it. Graphics are average in the point and click part but very good in the various cutscenes. Good music.

The story goes on in a very nice way. I liked the mini-games in this part because they fit nicely to the theme. Very interesting stuff and definitely a "must play" - not only for TB-fans.
.... and it even more definitely needs to be continued.
A very well made game with fun, a deep story and charisma.

Finding a new installment in the Technobabylon series was quite a treat.

Unless I remember incorrectly, the inventory system seems far more intuitive than the previous episodes -- good show.

I agree with previous commenter that the minigame aspect did partially detract from gameplay (with the exception of the Drone minigame -- I actually kind of liked that one).

While episode 2 is definitely my favorite of the three thus released, this is definitely a worthwhile download -- especially if you've played the first two, since the storytelling is top-notch.

I think part of the problem might be that the other protagonist has a lot more going for him from a character/motivational standpoint. That's not to say that this episode's main character won't be fleshed out in future episodes, but the previous episode had a lot more intrigue.

Speaking of future episodes, if the game creator pursues developing Technobabylon games full-time, I'd definitely Paypal a few bucks in to assist in the process. =

Cool episode, the plot seems to be going in a more straightforward direction now and the different plot threads start to connect, which might mean there's a climax on the horizon.

The puzzles were solid, but not as fun and creative as the ones in previous episodes.

The low point of it all are the cliched, and mundane mini-games. Part 3 would be better without them.

Nevertheless, I'm eagerly waiting for more Technobabylon.

A nice installment to the series. Despite I found it slightly inferior to the first 2 parts, there has been a great effort from the author and the graphics and music are quite improved.

Outstanding. Each game has a different feel but they all keep on drawing you into what is a really interesting story. I'm eagerly looking forward to part IV.

The series is getting much better with each new episode. Everything has been improved for the third part. The story slows down, but the intrigue rises. Looking forward to more episodes.

To the author: Yes, you should consider making this for a living :-)

Awesome work yet again! Intriguing story and some well thought-out puzzles, but the getting into the guy's brain one was a little on the hard side, maybe because I'm not used to those kind of puzzles. Still, I got through it though. Excellent work, can't wait for the next one.
