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

Oh no! Ben's sweets tin has gone missing! How will he ever enjoy life without his delicious candy?!

This is where you, the player, come in. Guide young Ben Chandler (aka Ben304) through the wild and rugged Australian wilderness as he goes searching for his beloved tin. Who knows, he might even encounter some paranormal phenomena along the way.

AGS Panel Review

"BC:PI! is a short and funny game set in the Australian outback. It takes some walking around before finding a clear direction, but the many humourous dialogues and witty remarks make this exercise less of a problem."

2 people commented on this game (newest first):

Hilarious game! Very good graphics, odd story and a killingly funny intro sing-along song. The voice acting and music are also very good. Play it for 30 minutes of nonsensical fun!

I've had quite some fun with the Bake Sale version of this game while riding a train today, often grinning like a jerk and occasionally chuckling on top of it. Now I wonder if I'll ever get that song out of my head again ... :D

BC:PI is easy, short (about half an hour) and for the most part based on Aussie and AGS in-jokes (what with being a game about Ben Chandler ;) ), but the soundtrack is top notch, the backgrounds beautifully drawn and the voice-acting's quite good, too. In short, it was a very enjoyable distraction and IMO worth buying the bundle all on itself. Kudos and thanks for creating it!
