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!

I found this through the Lucky Dip. Overall, it's a good game, the graphics are simple but they suit the plot twist. The worst aspect of the game may be the puzzles, they were too illogical and required by far too much guessing and pixel hunting.

He's Gone Historical was a game that really surprised me. It was a reasonably small download with no screenshot so my expectations were low. It turned out to be a charming little game.

He's Gone Historical is a comedy in two very distinct acts. The first part of the game is a more domestic adventure set on a university campus. Then, half way through the game suddenly becomes a medieval adventure with wizards, pirates and dragons. There is a pleasing game length and some nice retro graphics which were apparantly painstakingly drawn pixel by pixel.

The game has its flaws. Some of the humour falls a little flat, opting for lazy surrealism and dull references. Also, the second part of the game is rather complex with some confusing puzzles where you have to exhaust all the conversation options with the right person at the exact right time. Still, having said that, the puzzles are largely quite logical and much of the dialogue is very funny indeed.

All in all, He's Gone Historical is a very enjoyable first effort and I would definitely love to see a sequel surface sometime in the future
