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

In the far future, humans explore and colonise space using ridiculously deadly, moon-sized trains - the 'Astro Locomotives'.
Playing as a mechanic and a roguish pilot, can you save Gilbert Station from destruction at the hands of an irate alien attack fleet, a rival train company, and bored pirates?



Features:
* Classic 1990s adventure gameplay! Inspired by genre classics such as Space Quest, Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.
* Trains. In space. That's worth the entry price, right there.
* The funniest writing in an adventure game this side of the millenium. That might be a positive or a negative, depending on how much you enjoy laughing until you dribble.
* Two playable characters for the price of one.
* Fully voiced! You'll also be able to turn the voice-over off, since we know some of you like to do that.
* Fully soundtracked! You won't be able to turn the music off. In fact, the volume slider starts at 100% and it only goes up from there.
* The 'unique' graphical style of subAtomic and Plan M!
* Interesting puzzles and minigames! We know a lot of you adventure gamers out there like to actually have some challenge in your games. For everyone else, just curl up tight, hold down your Escape key, and hope it ends soon.
* A low, entirely reasonable retail price!

Just completed this - definitely worth getting, it is on the short side (probably 3-4 hours to complete) and fairly easy, but it's a lot of fun and contains many moments that will have you laughing out loud - the writing and voice acting are very good. The music is also great.


The Developer Commentary is good too (best to complete the game first before you go through with commentary though). Only got 12 out of 20 achievements on first play through so might try to get the rest when I play it through again for the commentary.
