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

Amusing and original adventure, in Italian and in English. A young reporter during a journalistic scoop will discover an ancient curse.. This is a light and amusing adventure, the atmosphere not serious but pleasant and nice (I believe that all the AG should be so)... It isn't a fan-game (the history and characters are new ) but in the game there are small homages for the adventures that have made to dream in this years. 320x240 pixels art Original background Music * mp3 (original) Interface simil-scumm Italian / English

AGS Panel Review

"Difficult pixel hunts and a sometimes confusing translation hold back what is otherwise a fun game. "

I'm sorry for the confusing translation... I'm the translator, and I definitely understand (now) that one should translate from another language to his own rather than the contrary (as in this game, since I'm Italian, and I made the English version). Anyway we had the translation checked by a native English AGSer, and he told it was almost ok, and corrected what was wrong... so it's strange you find it confusing.

Some minor bugs, sometimes a pixelhunt and a bit strange way of spelling.
But (for me) definitely fun to play.
Download and check it out i'd say...
Good job Tequila144!
