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!

An absolutely adorable little game with lovely graphics and story but weighed down by a bug in the inventory as well as a slightly annoying trial and error puzzle and somewhat unsatisfying ending that leaves things unresolved. Still, it's well animated and handles the nonverbal communication excellent.

Nice little game. Visuals where pleasant. Nice mix of puzzles.
I did find a game breaking bug near the end when you try to use a certain inventory item that shouldn't be there. But don't let that put you off. Still worth a play when you want something short and sweet.

This was a fun little game that I really enjoyed playing. I hope that there will be more additions to this game in the future as the end of the game sort of hints at.

While the lack of verbal communication makes this game quite unique it manages to convey the plot story and this game has all what is a adventure game, plus very nice graphics and sounds like in Matt's other games.
