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

A thrilling pseudo-noir romp through a world lacking somewhat in style and originality. Help the protagonist Chalkman in his quest to navigate the illogical plotline teeming with semi-sophisticated puzzles and a cast of highly annoying characters.

Part satire, part tragedy, and part possible copyright infringement of several of the old-school classics such as Monkey Island, Sam and Max, Return to Zork, and even Sonic the Hedgehog, this game's got it all, including a blue cup.

Disclaimer: game does not come with blue cup.

This game is absolutely challenging and has been a joy to play.

It is quite easy to be dissuaded by the savage chalky stick-man graphics and lack of colour and seeming lack of a plot.

But I do highly recommend giving this game a go. It is down as a medium length game, but could almost be considered a full length game. There is so much to see and witness with Dinosaurs and Daleks, and Indiana Jones style scenarios, many ways to die, and a hellacious shopping mall. I'd be tempted to give this a five cup rating.

This is an interesting game and even though I never could get finished with the game I enjoyed playing it.

A note from the author:

This game is best played in full screen. For Windows XP users, the executable Chalkman.exe should run okay for full screen. For Windows 7 users, try the batch file FullScreen(Win7).bat to start the game to ensure colours are not messed up when playing the game in full screen.

If you get stuck (literally) then it might be a bug. Read all about it here:
