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!

Thoroughly captivating game by someone who plainly enjoyed making it. I sure enjoyed playing it, didn't want it to end.
I know plenty of people that don't normally play/enjoy/appreciate video games, but they would enjoy this.
Retrying without saving was excellent. I did wish the finale had been stretched some.

One of my favorite AGS games. You can't beat its atmosphere (great mix of melancholy and humor) and fun puzzles. However, the ending was way too abrupt - even one new additional background screen would help immensely to reward the player.

This is really a very good game that is absolutely worth playing. The graphics were quite pretty, the writing was pretty well-done, and the puzzles were for the most part well-designed and not frustrating. One visual gag (when the player character puts on the long johns) actually made me laugh out loud. There are a couple of minor weak points (such as the sound effects), but the big problems with this game are how short it is and the lack of a satisfying ending. I wanted more when the game was over, which is a good thing, but I also felt a bit ripped off by the lack of a proper ending, which is not a good thing. Overall, however, it's really a very good game that's well worth playing.

There is not enough to say about this game. This adventure harks back to the wonderment and enjoyment of Kings Quest. It is populated by cute, humorous characters, great writing and great puzzles. It is so worth it, try it and you will not be disappointed.

It truely is a great ADVENTURE game, that focused on taking you on an (albeit short) adventure.

A fun game that has that Sierra feel to it.

I've only just started, but I love the drawings. It looks really good for a first impression. :)

I really enjoyed this nice, cute and funny little game ! It was not too easy, not too hard, not too long, not too short. I finished it without any walkthrough (what is rare ^^) with a lot of enjoyment.
I like the possibility of retrying each time you die.
Well done :)
