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 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn 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 under-rated!

(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!

AGS Panel Review

"While the game was listed under comedy, the horror overtones are far more pervasive in this confusing, often downright bizarre, game. While some of the puzzles are clever, just as many have a peculiar logic (dried up wine to stick things together?). The flow of the story is also more like a Twin Peaks episode than a game, and at points it's difficult to tell whether it was meant to be an experience or an actual, solid game."

3 people commented on this game (newest first):

A quirky game. Though the quirkiness of the plot and puzzles is probably a matter of personal taste, the quirkiness of the UI got in the way.

The puzzles were logical, though quite far from realistic. In general they're quite obvious, so even if the realism is low, you won't have much trouble (the gum puzzle being a clear example).

I wouldn't recommend this game there being many others to play.

A really weird, random, crazy game, but overall the puzzles are great and really add up to the game, I just looked over things on each room when I played and it was really easy to guess the solution to all of them. Really made my day.

The puzzle logic in the game I actually found very solid. Wine or not, when there's a stain on a table described as being really sticky, the fact that you can use it to stick some things together (especially pieces of paper) couldn't be more obvious.

Overall, the game tells a pretty outrageous story, but manages to create convincing atmosphere and offer good gameplay. In the end it makes for a very involving experience.
