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

It's just typical isn't it. You're planing on having a relaxing day, maybe going to the movies or having a quiet drink at home with friends and what happens?

You get called up by your boss and next thing you know you're expected at work within the next 20 minutes.

Groan, so annoying. It's even worse when your boss is an egomaniacal, mad scientist (cliche? Of course.) and you promised your girlfriend that you would take her out on the town. Oh no, you know that girl is crazy. So what do you do? Get in, get it done and get out. Well, thats the plan anyway... Italian translation now included in first download.

AGS Panel Review

"Some awkward puzzles, and only three locations to explore, but humorous dialog and colorful graphics are a plus. Storyline could be stronger, but overall, game is solidly produced."

6 people commented on this game (newest first):

I am surprised this game got nominated for awards and got a four cup player rating. Perhaps the bar has risen since 2009.

Don't get me wrong though, this to me is definitely a solid three cup game. There is some quirky humour and fun puzzles to a game I very much enjoyed.

This is a fun game that I think most people would enjoy playing.

This game was pretty good, but I do have some small grievances.

I didn't like that you couldn't skip dialogue in a cutscene, which, for a short game, this thing seemed to have many of. Also, once you get the sheep the game still goes on for some time but it's not really interesting any more at that point.

On the bright side, it had some nice animations, I really liked the kid playing and the monster. Also, it was a nice touch that you could switch commands with a right mouse click, it really made gameplay smoother.

Nice little game with good jokes and puzzles.

This is one of the best examples of a fun AGS game. The puzzles were clever and just hard enough, but all made sense. The visual style is superb, the music fits perfectly, and the dialog was funny. I'm still laughing at the "object of my desire" line. While not particularly long, it definitely makes the most of its time; I noticed a couple parts where a lazier designer could have ended the game prematurely or given a puzzle a lame shortcut, but the game is solid all the way through. Go play it.
