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!

About this game

Entry for the fourth One Room One Week competition. A very short and simple game.

You play a criminal of some sort, and you need to escape the authorities.

I'm sorry it's so short, because I like the gameplay, the first person view, the GUI... We don't see games like that very often with AGS. Nice try !

The setting is gripping, the music is intense, and the gameplay is....short n easy.

It is always nice to see a different style of game in the ole AGS archives and I enjoyed this game albeit rather short.

I enjoyed this little game. There's a certain quality to first-person adventure games that is very likable. The graphics are nicely done and appropriate. The music suits the game as well.

I have a few minor criticisms. The lack of interactivity -- basically just clicking on stuff -- could have either been better handled or replaced with a more conventional select-action, do-it-on-object approach. And for whatever reason, the music had moments of skipping during the intro -- this happened across a few instances of running the program, not just incidentally.

But overall, I enjoyed this snack-sized game and I'd recommend it for a quick play ;).

I disagree with alot of the negative comments... I didn't think the design of this game was bad by any means... I liked the first person deal. My only complaint is it being too easy.

I sorry to say that this offering is not up to the standard of other games from AGS. It is too easy and has no depth of story at all.
it took less than five minutes to complete and relied too much on a move counter to effect the game. I'm sorry to be so negative but this game just doesn't cut the mustard.

Well I thought it was incredibly short and lacked player interactivity; It seemed that what little parts that I actually did on my own were altogether too easy and had no challenge. You didn't have to run anywhere, you didn't have to do anything, really. I washed my hands, opened the closet and took out an umbrella and a sheet and that was all I really did. 99 percent of the game is just one long cutscene, and it was not in any way engaging or enjoyable of a game at all. I knew that these were "short games" but if I wanted to see a powerpoint presentation, I could have made my own. Very dull. My rating: -5/10.

I really liked the first person perspective in this game. However, the lack of visual and in-dialogue feedback whenever you grabed an item was confusing.
The game is extremely short and the puzzles trivial, however the atmosphere is pretty good.
