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

Dark Black is a short adventure game made by Purplescape and dactylopus. It tells the story of a cruel villain and his evil plot to transform you and your village.

3 people commented on this game (newest first):

A toy-game. A feel-good memento of the early arcades for those still in love with the genre. The elements of an arcade world used to be described in a few dots - enough to impress the imagination - and the world was made whole there, in your mind. Unlike the atmosphere games that absorb you into their moods, an arcade used to make you an organic, vital part of its world. What were those green funny things, I tought ? And she said they were cute sheep. It only takes a few seconds for this suggestion to go down the psyche along with the music and you will soon feel the sheep as you feel your pulse. That is - if you allow yourself to be touched again by an arcade. And there are no dangers in this game. You get only the prizes of an arcade here, the pretty images that tell the turning points of the story. The simple story should not qualify this one as a game for kids. Just take a look at that wavy, starry, far-away-planet sky: it's ageless.

Cute graphics and interesting music, but the story and puzzles are almost non-existent. The game is just a short string of simple tasks.

This was a kind of short but good game.
