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

"Early Yahtzee that's showing it's age. Fun, but very rough around the edges. Game uses dos-based engine. Compatibility issues may arise on newer systems. Recommend use of VDMSound, available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/vdmsound/, or similar."

5 people commented on this game (newest first):

Too short, but pleasant to play through. For something this old, and drawn in Paint, it definitely deserves some praise. The writing is also above average. Not too keen on the choice of music, though.

I found this short game to be entertaining. The puzzles were pretty good though I was stumped for a bit when I failed to check something twice. I feel the best part of this game is the humor. Definitely worth playing.

Great game! Very concise. I love the intro and the rather short game play. Music is awesome. A very good stepping stone to the later Rob Blanc games.

Brilliant! Rob Blanc is really someone you can relate to (If you're an English chip shop worker who becomes the defender of the universe with a sidekick called Paul).

A nice little game with good jokes, but too short unfortuantely. And of course... the one that has kicked off the Rob Blanc Saga!!!!!11111!!!
