Sidebar bottom
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

What starts off as a close encounter becomes much more as Eric must battle against an evil insect, gain knowledge from a mysterious snowman, and transcend time and space itself in order to save the girl of his dreams.

Eric the Anteater features three different endings, beautiful pre-rendered graphics, and unique puzzles, all seamlessly woven into a story with memorable characters and devious villains.

Enjoyed every moment playing. Worth playing a second time, which is saying a lot for me ha.

This is a really good game. The screenshots don't really do the game justice. It's easy to be put off by the experimental 3D pre-rendered backgrounds, but bear in mind there are LOTS of them (this is quite a large game) and they all work together to create a really off-beat, surreal adventure. It's also a very funny game, with some brilliant, subtle humour.

I'm glad I 'lucky dipped' this game. I really recommend it to anyone reading this who hasn't played it yet. Whoever gave it only 2 cups probably judged it on about 5 minutes worth of play. Sure there is a lot of room for polish, but it's clear a lot of effort went into Eric The Anteater.

And I didn't even mention the FMV sequences. Great touch that most AGS games avoid.
