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!

seriously, this was too short and it felt REALLY rushed.
Great graphics and sound and some potential... maybe you should remake it and add some more interesting story and make it longer.

Okay, people have been whining about the dark font being used with the dark outline. The original colour for the font is white but there appears to be a bug of some sort in the game and some people see the font as black instead of white. We haven't fixed it because none of us (the game creators) has experienced it. None of the betatesters reported it. There's not much we can do about it so you just have to live with it.

Graphics were pretty cool. Music was nice. But the creator forgot to turn off debug mode before distributing the game:) One could get all inventory by pressing ctrl+s and go nywhere by pressing ctrl+x. Many gamers do that I see. And the idea of using dark text against a dark background was ridiculous. I thought I'd stop playing it, but the storyline and ambience of the game was really cool so it kept me going on. But the game ended abruptly. Did the creator get bored or was it intentional.

You need to fixe this game. Like when the character tries to speak the text displays in black color and it was very hard to read.

Overall the game has interesting thriller story and there is no doubt your customer are not going to escape this game when they see this game are here.

Nice graphics and sound, interesting story, but it is too short. It somehow seems to be rushed and when I completed it, all I could say was "that's it?"
The story really had potential, but sadly there is not much to discover in this game and the ending is forseeable. Calling this a medium length game is a quite optimistic.
