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

Join Ace Quest in a vulgar comedy. Filled with mirth and girth, as you protect our hero from being killed by Mr. X, a man bent on killing you because your fat is causing a flux in gravity pulling the earth towards the sun. Updated to a windows editor for better compatability, and added production notes. Have fun!

AGS Panel Review

"Don't let the horrible graphics repel you, there's some fun to be had in Ace Quest if you can stomach the fat jokes, and Ace definitely has the stomach for it!"

12 people commented on this game (newest first):

The creator of the game seems to be very much aware of the level of quality of the game, as the characters frequently break the fourth wall to comment on how bad the jokes are. Even the "producer notes" insist that the music and graphics are horrible. I won't argue with any of the above, but I'll applaud the creator for his honesty.

I will add, though, that the game was rushed in the third and final act. You literally have a single room with a 2-click puzzle, and that's it, game over. If you read the "producer notes", it claims the creator thought that was a good spot to end it, but I find that very hard to believe. He could've easily extended the "escape" (and actually make it more meaningful) by adding a couple more rooms, but it was clear the creator was bored with the game and just wanted to finish it as quickly as possible.

It's not surprising then why, to this day, he never bothered to finish the sequel.

This game has been out for years and I haven't bothered commenting on it, which is a crime because this is a wonderful game. There is a line between good and bad taste, and Mills not only crosses it, he leaves it light years behind. However, this is a big compliment. Funny games are hard to pull off, and Ace Quest pulls it off well with its blunt and hilarious sense of humor. Bring on Ace Quest 2!

This game is real fun to play! I'd definitely recommend it to everyone. What is cool about it is that everything you look at/touch/talk to, you get a different response every time. This is a game you'd look at and say OMG that sucks! but it turns out to be really good with nice puzzles too ^^

I love this game. The puzzles are a little too awkward in some points, but the humour is very funny. The graphics aren't THAT bad, but they could have used some fixing, and the story is also quite funny. I recommend this game with 3 thumbs up... I'd give it 4 but i need that thumb for hitch hiking, rock on Mills

Quite funny. Graphics are poor, but well written game make up for it by far. I am looking forward to AQ2!

This game is one of the funniest AGS games I've ever played. No wait, it might very well be THE funniest. There's nothing more hilarious than a poorly drawn fat man yelling at the sky. Brilliant, Mr Ross.
