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

It's time for the final exams at Magic University, and notorious slacker Larry Lotter is about to flunk all of them because he spent less time studying and more time drinking beer. But there is yet hope! Using a spell to travel back in time, he gets the chance to do his day over again and pull some tricks to pass the exams anyway! And he has to, because it's his Destiny.

Join Rob Greasley, Calliope DeRanger and Professor Mumblemore in this short Harry Potter parody, loosely based on the greatly admired books by J.K. Rowling. Watch the other characters act and interact of their own accord, and spin time back and forth to interfere.

Includes translations into into French, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Hungarian, Dutch, Russian, and Italian.

I enjoyed this one, though I had to use the hints on the Crystal Shard website to finish it. Some frustrating moments due to timing - I don't usually like racing against the clock, but in this case there was enough going for the game to make me refuse to give up! Great visuals and background details, nice touches like the other characters' conversations (is "Darco" bribing the teachers for good exam results?!) I found it hard to track down some of the spells and to be honest I would have been stumped by certain puzzles if it hadn't been for the walkthrough. I'm not particularly into Harry Potter, so I'd say this isn't one just for fans - I'm sure you get more out of the jokes if you love the books, but it's not crucial to completing the game.

A game with a very original approach. It might seem ridiculous at first, but it ends up making a lot of sense, once you wrap your brain around its modus operandi.

Tricky and funny game... not for anyone... I really had to put my brains in to it to finish it, Good parody, I WANT MORE....

PS. Maybe a little buggy but it is excused for having such an original premise (I mean the time traveling)

I'm sorry, but this game was just awful.... there seemed to be absolutely no point; I couldn't even figure out how to start/initiate any of my finals (example: potions, at the beginning). furthermore, it was sarcastic and rude, but not in a way that was whitty or even remotely amusing. It was just....annoying and listening to some stranger who comes up to you and starts ranting about something they can't stand and you try to listen but eventually you feel like your ears are going to explode....
I fully support your right as a free-thinker to parody whatever you like (as long as you give a disclaimer, etc etc) or to not parody if you so choose. But if you do feel the urge to create a game parody, please, at least make it enjoyable and put a little thought into it...

Great little game! I love how the characters wander round doing their own thing and talk to each other.

Brilliant and origianal game! Very, very addictive. I'm crossing my fingers for a larger version of this.
