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

Mike, Dog, Stanley and Frank are not only the pets of Billy, they are also the most-feared gang in the area.
One day, when Billy is away on some school-trip, Mike, the dog, get's caught by the evil dog-catcher Ivan.
His three friends don't hesitate and try to break into Ivan's dog-prison.

Every of the three has his special abilities.
Dog the cat can jump, climb and throw things. He is also the strongest member of the gang.
Frank the hamster can also climb. He is the only one who can carry something with him - just guess where.
Stanley the turtle is the slowest member, he can hide inside his shell, what makes him almost undestructable. He also carries the option-menue.

Alpha Dog was designed, written, coded, and established with three powerful pieces of music by Flo Förster.
Testing, speech-animations and lots of advice by Helme Burch.

AGS Panel Review

"Great look and feel, and awesome music. Although the game is buggy and rather not clear. The game showed a lot of potential."

2 people commented on this game (newest first):

Hehe, great idea for a game, sort of reminiscent of Gobliins, where you get three characters with different skills.

I found this game quite frustrating, but yet also quite rewarding. One of the puzzles was especially rather perplexing, but with time and thought, the answer did arrive.

I disagree with the one cup rating, would go for two at least.

Catchy tune, simple but nice sprites and animations.

A very nice concept for a game, though I didn't enjoy the try-everything-on-everything type of puzzle, so I eventually gave up on it.
