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

This game takes part in the future. Your task is to save the Universe from a lunatic professor. You'll do this by learning and using special abilities during the game.




DETAILED INFORMATION


IT IS THE YEAR 103752 AD.

IN THIS DISTANT PERIOD OF OUR FUTURE, MANKIND HAS DISCOVERED THAT THE STRUCTURE OF THE UNIVERSE IS BASED ON SOUND
IF PLAYED PROPERLY, THE SOUND PRODUCED BY AN INSTRUMENT CAN MOVE OBJECTS WITHOUT PHYSICAL FORCE, IT CAN ALLOW TRAVEL THROUGH TIME AND SPACE, AND IT CAN EVEN DESTROY WHOLE PLANETS.

FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS THE UNIVERSAL GUILD OF MUSIC HAS PERFECTED THESE ABILITIES, WHICH DEPEND NOT ONLY ON THE INSTRUMENT BUT ALSO ON THE PLAYER.
THEY USED THEIR ABILITIES TO INFLUENCE THE UNIVERSE POSITIVELY. BUT THEY ALSO KEPT THEM IN SECRET IN ORDER TO AVOID ANY FORM OF ABUSE.

THE PUPILS OF THE GUILD MUST FACE DIFFICULT TESTS AND STUDY FOR YEARS BEFORE THEY BECOME MASTERS. THESE MEASURES ARE NECESSARY TO DISALLOW EVIL-MINDED PERSONS FROM GETTING ACCESS TO THE GUILD.
THIS HAS WORKED FLAWLESSLY FOR CENTURIES.

UNTIL NOW.

Nice little game, shame it was so short. Was finished before it really got going.

Weird game.. I finally was able to beat it.

Otherwise from a kinda quirky movement and such it was fun. It has a very personal and unique flair.

It also had an interesting permise and it GREATLY reminded me of LOOM by Lucasarts if anybody remembers that game.

Great work!

Excelent intro and very good game, the only thing to mention is that the puzzles were just a bit too easy.
And the translation was perfect.

If you, like me, were turned off by the translation and never got to finish the game, please try it again. I rewrote most of the English text and Le Woltaire was kind enough to include it with the game, so now you can direct your hate to me if the new translation hurts your eyes :)

The updated version is already available for download. Le Woltaire was nice to work with, I'm sorry my first reaction was to post a negative review before even contacting him.

Dear jkohen,

I understand that you were "turned off" by the spelling and grammar mistakes I made. I'm not english, so I have problems expressing myself in this language. If you want you can proof read my game.

It is interesting that you found bugs...nobody has told me about that, since now. What bugs exactly? Could you concretisise this? Why is the GUI unusable? It is almost the same as in many famous Lucasarts games of the past....

I think we have to help each other to improve our abilities. It would be kind to write a personal message and ask for hints if you get stuck or report a bug when you find one, before you post a bad negative comment or a bad vote....but thats only my opinion.

This game looked promising. The premise was interesting (although 100.000 years into the future?), but the grammar and spelling mistakes in the English translations were big turn offs.
The GUI is close to unusable, there is little feedback and the game is buggy.

This could have been an epic adventure given the theme, but was disappointingly short. More cutscenes than gameplay...enjoyed it nontheless.

Such a great game in such a short time, amazing !
