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

You are the crime fighter for the city of Shadowlawn. Just when you're complaining about how dull things have been, a supervillain named Toxicman is created from a botched act of corporate sabotage. It is up to you, then, to tear yourself away from food long enough to save the city from certain destruction.

This was the first commercial game to be made with AGS, and is now available as a special edition.

The download links above are for the previously released "Free" version (no voices).

The voiced version can currently still be purchased from Steam:

AGS Panel Review

"The Adventures of Fatman is a fun, complete adventure game with a lot to offer fans of the genre as long as they are willing to look past the sometimes irritating voice-overs. Now that it is free there's even more reason to play it if you haven't yet!"

The best thing about it is the humor, it's fantastic. Some puzzles felt unlogical and I had to use a walktrough to complete it. ...but I completed it and enjoyed the experience. Good work!

This game was good, with some interesting gameplay. Though it unfortunately illustrates the disillusion of a lot of AGSers (commercial).

Superb game! Absolutely superb! Nice graphics, nice storyline, absolutely amazing-really goes to show people just what AGS is truly capable of. Would you consider releasing the source code for people to look at, Ionias?

I loved this game, the dialogue was interesting, humorous and I loved the story line. I think the creator put on his thinking cap with this one and did a great job!

I don't really like this game, it's not fun nor is it funny in the slightest. The visuals are lacking at best. The voice acting is bellow average. I give this game a 2/5. Geeze why was this game even TRIED to be sold.

Wow, this is a fun games! Great music, and tricky but not impossible puzzles. The storyline is a little cheesy, but it develops into an exciting ending. One of my favorite games so far!
