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!

Deadly Consequences!

Set in Victorian London 1870.

In your office one morning you are looking through the day's mail when you come across an invitation issuing you a game of challenge.

You have not had a juicy case in over two weeks and this is just what you need to fill the empty void and give you mind stimulation.

The invitation instructs you to be at Blackthorn Manor 23rd September at 8:00pm.

Blackthorn Manor has been assumed to be empty for years.

Your hired coach driver stops a mile short of the Manor and refuses to go any further, due to what he has heard about Blackthorn Manor, and advises you to steer well clear!

Upon your arrival at Blackthorn Manor you are greeted by an unseen voice. It soon becomes apparent that this is no ordinary game of challenge, but a game of deadly consequence with the life of Queen Victoria in the balance!

You must solve door puzzles to get into the rooms beyond. This requires much thinking about. Find and obtain valuable items that will help win these challenges for you must collect ten Black Ravens.

This game has Modes for Un-Timed and Timed games.

Timed Modes:
You have been set a time limit afterwhich a poisonous gas will expel: killing you within minutes!

It is a race against time. Will you succeed and win this deadly game and save Queen Victoria from certain death?

Specs:
800 x 600 resolution
16 bit colour
DirectDraw 5
Primary control: Mouse

This is a fun game and I look forward to more games in this series if they come about.

I love puzzle-based games, and I love escape games. This kind of reminded me of the 7th Guest, only this game is a lot quicker and more tense, especially on timed mode. Some of the puzzles were better than others, and there were one or two minor glitches, but overall this is an impressive addition to Slasher's ever-expanding catalogue.

Overall this game is a lot of fun. As noted in the description, the game is going from room to room solving puzzles to acquire the elements required to complete a single task.

The graphics and visual effects are pleasing. The sound and music are appropriate. The voice acting is a nice touch but something about the voices sounded off as they were not recorded clearly.

A very mysteriously good Doors puzzle quest game.

Reason why I downloaded this game in the first place is because of the odd, retro and unique graphical style, which is characterized by inconsistent visual elements. I must note that this graphical chaos doesn't make the game bad by any means, but indie and different. Albeit, some of the puzzles were too difficult and some badly designed or too easy, the non linearity and the general design of the whole game makes it worth playing. The developer of the game made a lot of effort in voice acting the game, which I personally didn't like, but there is a button in options menu to turn it off, so it's not a problem. Otherwise, it could make you more immersed into the game.

A solid game that introduces a very likable main character into the genre of adventure games:

Mr. Charles Davenport: Gentleman Adventurer/Stalwart Protagonist
