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!

AGS Panel Review

"While the story is nothing original, the quality of the graphics and the humor make the game playable."

7 people commented on this game (newest first):

The graphics are really distinctive and well done but it's insubstantial even for a short game. The puzzles were very straightforward and it has more of a premise than an actual plot. It was amusing in places but I didn't find it really funny or particuarly interesting.
Not terrible though and it looks nice. There are worse ways of killing a few minutes.

One of the best short games I've played. The music really fits the sad atmosphere, the graphics are amazing and the dialogues got a few chuckles out of me.

Despite being very short the story wraps properly and doesn't feel incomplete. It does leaves you wanting more, though!

Great main character and the epilogue made the game worth playing.

Excellent mags game. I remember when I first played it I was suprised with it's original style. Good game, decent puzzles and you should enjoy it....

Great graphics, and clever concept.
Better than avreage, but there are some ilogiacal puzzles, as well as a walkingdeath posibility.
