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

It's snowing, you're freezing, you're a hundred miles from home and you're locked out of your flying car.
The future ain't what it used to be.

Barn Runner: The Prick Who Came In From the Cold is the fourth game in the Barn Runner series which began as terribly misguided spoof of Blade Runner / Escape From New York / and The Andy Griffith Show. It's the far future imagined through the filter of the 1980s!

The game has a Christmas theme (sort of) and centers around a lazy, egocentric policeman in the distant future tasked with hunting down and destroying runaway robots who have had it with lazy, overbearing humanity and finally vented their mechanical rage on their hapless owners and anyone else within easy reach.

Naturally, like all humanity in the future, the cop hates his job and doesn't really put a lot of effort into it. So it's up to you to make him accomplish anything.

Don't worry, this isn't an action-oriented game and there are no arcade sequences. It only sounds terribly exciting, but rest easy: It isn't exciting in the least.

I hope you enjoy my game. It isn't the greatest but I certainly could have done much, much worse. (And have on several occasions!)

How much fun can a game be with a strange old man in a rocking chair?

Plenty fun :P

I did struggle with some of the puzzles, but never got frustrated due to the excellent and endless dialogue ponch has provided
