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

"A fun an interesting game marred by overcomplicated puzzle design."

19 people commented on this game (newest first):

This has got to be one of the most challenging AGS games around. There are so many places to explore, and the level of effort that must have gone into making this game is just wow!

I do believe it is conceivable for someone to finish this game without cheating, but for me, the walkthrough called out a third of the way into the game. As there is so much ground to cover, the game can be frustrating when you have run out of ideas of things to try.

When I started to play it I'd never thought that it would bring me such an enjoyment! The first puzzles and the graphics of Bog's home didn't seem quite enviting to me, but I always give games a chance...so I continued playing and I'm glad I did it - as soon as you find yourself in the underworld, the REAL fun begins - I especially liked the very creative plot, the bizarre landscapes and characters...and it is REALLY a full-length game, so I had MUCH fun with it for a LONG time!
Puzzles were sometimes a little bit too hard for me cause I tend to be unpatient sometimes...but with the help of a walkthrough it didn't become to frustrating...

I really would like to play a sequel ;-)

greetings

I enjoyed this nice game, graphics are very lovely and Bog is fun. But I couldn't go to the end, because it's very too difficult for me. Too bad.

Sorry for overcomenting. Forgot that i had already comented :(

This game is really nice. Even tough graphics are little strange, its funny and logical. Only things I didnt liked is that the pluzzes become a little too hard after a while.
2007-10-19 23:48:29 by manored
This game is good in everthing, except that the pluzzles become a little to hard near the end. They never lose the logic tough. The graphics are a little weird but you get used too.

One of the best AGS games ever! Couldn't stop playing it! There HAS to another full length sequel to this!

I love this game. The graphics are fantastic with a wonderful sense of color and form. It's tough, no question, took me forever to finish but even while I was banging my head on the monitor I enjoyed every minute of it. I can't wait to see what Wretched comes up with next.

While I truly enjoyed some of the puzzles, I didn't really enjoy that many of them. I truly dread pixel-hunting and solving puzzles that involved random selections out of the "already many inventory items" and the above two are implemented rather extensively.

Also, I feel that many of the screens could have been combined into fewer screens. I truly don't see the need for running around so many screens.

While this game is highly playable and will compel you to keep solving to the end I found the massive size of the game to be a hinderance in keeping up with all the simultaneous puzzles. With a walkthrough, it still took me what was probably around eight hours to complete this game. Some of the puzzles, such as those in the first part of the game, are pretty much logical for the average adventure game player. Certain others I still didn't "get" after using the walkthrough and consulting the forums. A couple of games and puzzles infuriated me as they took FOREVER to complete.

Overall, I felt the plot was awesome as were the graphics and sound effects. For me, there was just too much stuff going on to remember.

I LOVED the storyline...it really pulls you in.
The music was wonderfull and the graphics were quirky (in a good way!)

The only downside of this game was that the puzzles were very difficult. If it weren't for the Bog's Adventure thread in the Hints and Tips, I would still be in the first scene!

But, overall this is one of the few games that has captured my interest so thoroughly.

Great game, I like the style - although I think you should have drawn paths in the background so it is possible to see where Bog can go. Also some of the puzzles were so hard that I think Bog could have said some hints (You could put an option in the start room, like if Bog would pick up some shiny thing before going to the mouth then the hints would be on).

The game is certainly massive and I would advise mapping as you go. I cannot say that I enjoyed some of the ingame games, eg pig shooting, as this did not involve logic but more luck. As for the puzzles, most of them I did not find at all logical as no real hint as to what to do next was give in the text. Eg the drippy guy wants a friend, why go and use a broom on a bloody carcass? Sorry but I found it very disapointing after all the rave reviews I had read.

WOW. Wretched is amazing in creating the best games that completely consume your brain power. The storyline, graphics and music are great.
A game you definitely must play.

Absolutely awesome game! It will have you pulling you hair out and turn your brain to mush though - Terrific stuff wretched!

This is a great game. Some of the puzzles took a while but they are all logical and well placed. A lot of time went into this game and though there are still some minor bugs the game is playable and should be played
