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

Mr. Danger's Contest This is an entry to the May, 2009 MAGS competition. I took some time off from working on Murran Chronicles #3 to do this light hearted investigative drama/sci-fi/comedy mixture, and really enjoyed it. STORY: You are James McManus, a loner. You receive an invitation from a mysterious Mr. Danger to come and compete in a competition against other 'special people' to inherit his millions of dollars. Not one to pass up that much money, you head to his secluded mansion. Once there, things quickly turn deadly, and you must not only be the winner of the competition, but you must also try to figure out who is killing the competition before they do away with you. INFO: Mr. Danger's Contest is in 640x400 resolution (natively 320x200, but my fonts look better in the larger resolution). And yes, all those awesome sound effects and all the music were all made by me and my trusty PC microphone :)

Wonderful X-men meets Clue scenario with uniquely twisted sound effects and music.

Great little game - loved the music and noises etc!

This game was a lot of fun. Incredible for only taking a month to make. The music and sounds were a little odd at first but I got used to them.

Firstly I cannot believe this was a MAGS game! Graphics are excellent given the time frame and the story and characters are not bad either.

Story may sound like a cliche but it is in fact an interesting premise and well executed. To say that there are areas that could be improved would simply be picky seeing as this is a MAGS game, definitely recommended.

Although it may sound cliché, the story is quite good. The graphics are nice if you consider that it is a MAGS game. Most of the puzzles are well done and the special power makes them more interesting.
Music and sounds are very unique. If you don't like them you can switch of your loudspeaker without missing important clues.
Took me about 2 hours to complete.

This was an amazing game. The music and sound effects were very original. I never played a game like that before. I recommend this to everyone!

Great "sci-fi supernatural detective thriller" game.
Reminds me a bit of Agatha Christie.
A whodunit, but with a twist: starring people with supernatural abilities.
Nice puzzles, nice graphics and weird sounds.
Gives about 2 or 3 hours of game play.
Highly recommend!!!
