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

Ever since a meteor landed in the back yard of Dr. Fred and Nurse Edna’s Victorian mansion, bizarre things have been happening. First, their mutant son, Weird Ed, dropped out of school. Then patients started disappearing from Country Hospital. And now this strange event is affecting the lives of innocent (and even some not-so-innocent) teenagers. In fact, a girl named Sandy is being held captive in that musty old mansion right now. Sandy’s boyfriend, Dave, has lots of friends who need you help to sneak in - and sneak her out. Now exactly how it all ends up depends entirely on which trio of friends you send in there. And which inhabitants you encounter. In fact, the farther you get inside the mansion, the more weird characters you’ll meet. There’s Nurse Edna - who’s as nasty as she is ugly. There’s a disembodied Tentacle who wants you to make him a rock star. And a host of others, who all have their own crazy quirks you’ll have to deal with. Everyone in there seems to be working for Dr. Fred. But the question is: “Who is Dr. Fred working for?”

The game is available in English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Maltese, Bulgarian and Russian.

I'm trying to play it but since I've played "Day of the Tentacle" I'm afraid it won't be that funny...

I really enjoyed this game.

Absolutely a great game. Needs to be played by anybody.

A brillian remake of a true classic!

Of the AGS games I've played, I'd consider MMD to be one of the best. The best qualities of the game would have to be it's variable qualities; all the different possible endings really brings the game alive, and the cutscenes throughout the game really give a sense of progress. Overall I'd strongly reccomend this game.

Best. Game. Ever.

Very, very nice - Being a fan of the original, I can't say much besides that I loved this remake! I do miss the music from the Nintendo version, though.... (The music when you enter Edna's room, mostly... God, that was one of the best parts of the game... :) )

Kudos, man - Can't wait to see what your next project is!

Awesome remake faithful to the original, the Lucas equivalent of Tierra\'s KQ1 remake.

I remember the original and this rendition brings it back to life and reminds me of my happy (relatively) childhood years. I haven't beat this yet, but the amount of work put into it must be tremendous! Good work.

A beatiful remake of this already superb game.

He did it again!
This time Lucasfan did not come up with a new story, but he and his crew put a remarkable effort in this project and came up with Maniac Mansion deluxe which is providing me with some of the funniest memories of my chidlhood. The VGA-colors look very nice but don't take away anything from the wonderful old mood. The scumm-interface is much nicer than the original one. And the best: the stupid secret door on the first floor is ALWAYS open and I don't have to worry about the copy protection anymore :) After so many years I was finally able to explore what is behind that door and I know what I will be doing for the next weeks, I will be trying to solve the secrets of the Maniac Mansion.
