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!

About this game

A short escape the room style game. As a mage pupil you have recently brought on the wrath of your teacher by accidentally setting his lab on fire and nearly summoning a demon into the house. As punishment you are forced to stay inside a barn for a week with only a bucket of water to survive from. Being an impatient student, you simply want to escape the weird place.

I found this game to be rather 'buggy'...I don't really understand how, but I would try to use an item and it would crash out....not very often though.

I would rate this as one of the harder AGS games! There is no reason why a player couldn't finish the game, but it is tough! Give it a go :P

I enjoyed it, even if the graphics are not very beautiful. But the puzzles were quite interesting.

Graphics are a bit on the poor side, but I found the puzzles interesting. Nice premise to a future works!

Since it was a first game just to test the Lucasarts interface, it's forgivable, but the puzzles in this were frustrating, a "guess what the author was thinking" kind of setup where things that you think would be the obvious solutions aren't possible, have unnecessary extra steps, or are pixel hunts. And the characters were painted over sprite rips.
