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!

AGS Panel Review

"Lovely stuff. Despite a few hotspot issues, this well-paced atmospheric sci-fi short leaves you wanting more."

With more polish this could be exceptional. Cracking atmosphere.

The story and atmosphere of this game is really quite unnerving and creepy. Some of the gameplay is hindered by small hotspots, and there is a general feeling that the game could have been more polished, but overall this is very decent game.

Apart from some hotspot and exit indicators missing or being slightly unclear, this game was quite impressive! It could do with a bit more polish, but that can be said for pretty much all MAGS games, so I can't hold that against it.

The feeling of wandering about the ruins of a dead civilization is one of my favourite sci-fi tropes and Awakening does a damn fine job of capturing that sense of dread, the unknowable threat and the curiosity that drives one on to discover more.

Very well done, and my favourite game of this month's entrants.

I really enjoyed this game and I would love to see more from this game creator in the future.

Hauntingly beautiful and very cinematic. I liked the unusual interface that combined inventory items on dialog choices. That was very cool. I had problems sometimes with other interfaces however and they need some polish to kill all the glitches. The story was quite good, although also something that has been done many times before. This is not always a bad thing I feel though as long as something new is brought to the table. I'm not 100% sure if it was in this case, but the cool touches like a main character sprite that changes appearance and even walkcycle to project his current situation and mood are impressive. The effect I loved the most however was the tracks appearing in the snow in the last cutscene. The visuals were amazing in all cases. The music was incredible (created by the author I believe). Overall: An amazing visual, audial, and cinematographical experience, but lacking just a tad in gameplay and user-friendly interface.
