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 Cup Not serious entertainment
2 Cups A reasonable game, worth a try
3 Cups A good game, worth playing
4 Cups A great game, well worth your time
5 Cups An 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 underrated!

(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

"NecroQuest shows effort on the part of Yarooze, but the uneven puzzle design (mostly consisting of walking to one room and back several times) artificially extends what would be an even shorter game. Still, the game shows promise and is worth a look!"

4 people commented on this game (newest first):

For a first game this is quite amazing. Yes, the puzzles are not complicated, but if you don't like slow walking there is at least an option in the game control to speed things up.
GOOD POINTS: the world is intriguing and the cut scenes are hilarious and well animated. The backgrounds are simply awesome, and the politics behind the scenes is eerily familiar. The merging of technology and the arcane is nothing short of brilliant.
DRAWBACKS: Too much sex!!! Just kidding. But seriously, there is too much sex. Some of the text needs polishing, and the puzzles, as said, are a bit simple.
OVERALL: As first games go, it is very well done.

Nice graphics and animations. I think the puzzles weren't too bad, just too much walking. And the walking was quite slow, especially in the staircase.

Great wee game.

Interesting story about Tom trying to find his missing grandfather. The whole 'necromancer' things adds a nice twist. Wonderful graphics animation, and some amusing dialogue.

Puzzles are not too taxing, but it's fun to play.

A great first game. Looking forward to the next part.

A good first game. I liked the fact that there seems to be more than just what the game offers: we learn of a whole world and I'm eager to know what happens next. I liked the ending as well.

However, the walking speed is too slow and the puzzles and the writing could be improved in my opinion. I hope to see part 2 soon though!
