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!

A nice lil game to keep ya entertained for when you got half hour to spare.

I like how you can only pick things up when you need them, it would be in real life,..and why not? Considering there is only 1 room.

I really enjoyed this game. The digitised sprite seemed to work well with the background and the humour made me smile.

An enjoyable short game. :)

Interesting game... tricky to get certain things to work, because you have to try everything first.... the main character gfx were sweet though.

Alone in the Night is a cool little short game which I enjoyed a lot. Set entirely in a haunted cabin in the middle of nowhere, I was expecting a horror game but instead it is very much a comedy game. The destination may be spooky but the main character just shrugs it off and even casually befriends a cutesy ghost.

Although my expectation initially made the game seem weak, once I accepted it for what it was meant to be I had a great half hour of gameplay. Notably, the game has one of the funniest moments I have seen in an AGs game (SPOILER: I refer to when the chandelier comes crashing down. Great bit of slapstick with perfect sound affects SPOILER END).

The graphics were nice, especially the smoothly animated real life main character. One thing that annoyed me was the games insistence that you try every possible thing before it allowed you to pick up every item. Still, once I had worked out this was the case it was only a minor hinderance.

All in all, Alone in the Night is a slightly cliched but fun little game that I'd recommend giving a try if you've got a spare half hour
