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 is the first part of the Earl Bobby trilogy.
It is a short point and click adventure about an old scottish earl who lives in an old castle in the scottish highlands, and maybe about the sense of life...




STORY:
It is deep midnight in the scottish highlands and Earl Bobby is wandering nervously around. He knows that he has an important conference the next day. That's why he needs his shoes. He can't leave the house without his shoes.

You will have to solve some freaky puzzles to finally find them. In the end there is a surprise waiting for you.
Help Earl Bobby to find his Shoes in his own castle!

If you ask me, this game is just right. I love it when a fairly spartan room like this can manage to fill up the main character's inventory, with items no less that both make sense where they are found and can often be used in more ways than one.

I love that the scenery is being used fully, and the graphics, while basic, did the job very well. there were also a fair deal of animations, and the humour of the game worked well. All in all, worth a tip of my hat. Bravo, sir.

Short, crazy, rough around the edges, visually stylish, humorous and, while it lasts, a lot of fun.

The only real annoyance was a large number of missing responses to the hero's actions.

The voice acting alone makes this worthwhile!

Not a bad game, though why someone would try to make such an ambitious game in three days eludes me. I did enjoy the humour but thought that this was an opportunty missed. The game was well balanced but could have been longer.

This game is really cute. I really recommend playing this game if you are in a bad mood.

Its a small mood-repairing program.

Its a very short game, but it is very funny. I'm really looking forward for the continuation. I hope you'll make it in the same stile.

It was a great idea to use classical music, it fits perfectly to the scene.

This game has an excellent production. It only makes you wish it was much longer.

I'm amazed at how Le Woltaire made this in 3 days. The close ups are my favourite, and something I didn't expect to find in such a short game.

Visually very good, and the music was well used. Puzzles were fairly logical and the game was enjoyable! :o)
