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!

Overall this was a fun little game to play.
Colourful and not too difficult puzzles except the very first one.
The verb coin however was pointlessly non-standard and added a further annoyance.
This also goes for the save and restore functions which, once selected MUST be used making it impossible to go from the MAIN save/restore menu ANYWHERE ELSE....even BACK to a currant game.
Lovely and nicely made little game with some control problems that hopefully will be corrected next game.

Wahey, I played this one before, but thought I'd play it again, and this time respectfully give praise where praise is due. This is after all a very nice MAGS game, one that should not be ignored.

The initial puzzle is very frustrating, and I gave up, tried again, then figured it out instantly. Hope people won't give up on that one. And I snuck a peek at the hints as to how to find the happy ending, though I suppose reading more carefully, I could've figured it out. Nice one.

Not bad graphics, but could have been better. I have no music, so that was not very immersive. Found the character too slow. But quite interesting anyway.

Its an ok game. Liked the art direction. Storyline was average, wish there was more. Also this game was very short, had some issues with the controls as well. Sometimes a delay in the mouse clicks.

Good effort put into it and would like to see a longer game as well with some issues fixed.

True adventuring glory with some great mind-boggling puzzles. A true gem in AGS.

A nice game, with some nice puzzles and some that were too tricky. However, what's the need to include explicit torture and moreover have the cute main character show sadistic behavior while at that?

I'm far from being "politically correct" myself, and I can certainly enjoy gory humor, but this is a phantasy game and you could have used just any other device to achieve the same end. I found it very ironic that just one minute later in the game I got a feather, which is what I was originally expecting I'd need to use to extract the information from the guy.

The best way I can think of to describe this game is "Decent." The quests were good, however the dialog was somewhat corny. Nothing to complain about the graphics, although the alternate endings werent anything special.

Nice game, but I didn't like the gui, and after a while the music got on my nerves.

Pretty good game. A few of the puzzles had me stuck for longer than they should've. (like escaping in the beginning took me about 30 minutes to figure out). Overall, a must-play!

A very nice game with lovely backgrounds, gentle humor and some tricky puzzles. The puzzles are very logical (though the initial puzzle might be frustrating) and the sprites are nicely done. The game is only let down by some small grammar issues and lack of detail in the sprite animations - it's also short, but this is understandable, as it's a MAGS entry. I'd love to see this extended!
