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

Escaping from a prison is never easy. But doing it with a correctional officer's consent is even harder. Officer Matthew Holmstett is a walking, talking regulation book and has his own set of ideals. Getting him to do what you want won't be an easy task. Don't overdo it, or you may find yourself handcuffed to a radiator very fast. Nobody trusts someone convicted for murder that easily after all...

Recommended for mature audiences only.

The mirror download is a version without the starter compiled with AGS 2.72.

AGS Panel Review

"Very enjoyable, but would benefit from (1) an original soundtrack (2) the tightening of a few puzzles and (3) improved pacing. Only the multiple endings prevent Reactor 9 from being classed as a Short Game."

28 people commented on this game (newest first):

This was a really nice game and the different endings were interesting.

A solid well developed adventure.

Played this one a while ago. From memory it had this groovy retro ambiance (music / graphics) and well developed characters. Oh, and I LOVED the infamous 'level measuring device' puzzle. I LOVE figuring that shit out!

Honestly, without exaggeration, this is one of my favorite games that I've ever played, AGS or no. Even with its relatively short length, I was completely drawn into the story and I really cared about the characters by the end. I was actually sad when it was over. Best of all, I found the puzzles challenging but completely intuitive (yes, even the infamous "level measuring device" part). Others may not have had the same experience, but personally every solution made sense to me logically and I never had to just try randomly using items from the inventory until one bizarre combination worked. The "trust meter" was also a really unique and cool element, adding depth to the story. The graphics were fantastic too.

The effect this game had on me was so strong that I registered in the forums just to post this comment! I won't be able to get it out of my head for a long time. Bravo, Bernie.

REALLY liked this one! Really wish it had been a bit longer! Excellent. I especially liked the story!

Someone suggested this game so I gave it a try. I was very happy with it! The story was interesting and involved, though it felt a little short if not incomplete. The teamwork system was very original and I'd like to see a full length game take advantage of it. I was also pleased with the different endings, and the good ending was a worthwhile reward. My one complaint was with the difficulty of the measuring device puzzle, but every other puzzle was very well designed. The newspapers were also hidden just about right.

This game, along with Bernie's other adventure game projects, is exactly what the AGS scene needs: Mature, cohesive and playable. A definite highlight!
2008-01-26 20:30:32 by Mortis
Excellent game, graphics and game play are quite different from any other.
2008-01-01 02:39:15 by Ryanb84 (ryanb84)
Great! Reminded me of Beneath a steel sky. It's a shame it's so short. I'd really like to see full length games from Bernie.
2007-12-10 14:01:04 by Arthur (Berserk)
Just amazing! The scenario and atmosphere really dragged me to finish it with 4 endings. One of the best AGS games!
2007-09-23 00:23:34 by Optimus (Optimus)
This is a great game - just difficult enough to keep you interested. I also loved the concept of having to keep the officer sweet while solving the puzzles - kind of a double challenge!
2007-08-18 16:04:32 by Stormy (Stormy)
This is a great game. Everything in it is so cool. Play it now!
2007-06-17 22:30:44 by coldwater (coldwater)
Incredible game. Possibly the best AGS game I've played.

I was searching for some free adventure games for my blog and found this games and posted it. (06-01-2007)

http://www.2dgames.eu/info.html?getid=121

I think this is the best free game 2006/200?

Thanks for making this game :)

One of the best AGS games by far. Good story, excellent endings, well-thought out puzzles, and good music and graphics!
2007-02-01 18:50:30 by ZAPPER (ZAPPER)
Very solid game. I'm looking forward to see more high-quality games such as this one!
2006-12-31 03:46:10 by jkohen (jkohen)
Fantastic game. Love Bernie's approuch to a more serious game (not that I don't also love kitties and large headed elf things).
2006-12-29 08:53:17 by Ivan "iSTVAN" Dixon (iSTVAN)
This is a great game! Intriguing story, well-integrated puzzles, beautiful graphics and great music - its got it all! And its one of the few games I replayed just to get the best ending. :)

This game is so cool. The story is excellent and delivered in such a way that you get really immersed in the world.
2006-12-17 02:44:56 by Jaws (Jaws)
Great game!

This had it all, what I enjoy probably the most at the moment about AGS games: good gameplay, interesting story, intuitive interface, stylish graphics and moderate playing time.
2006-12-16 22:33:13 by Mikko (Mikko)
A really good game! It is not very often that I play a game more than once just to see the different outcommings!
2006-12-13 21:44:58 by TassieDevil (TassieDevil)
Exellent game! Superb story and worked out perfectly.
