Sidebar bottom
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!

AGS Panel Review

"Despite some real trial and error gameplay, rein proves to be a very fun but extremely short game that is over just as you are getting involved in the story."

10 people commented on this game (newest first):

Great little game. Nice simple puzzles, great animations, a clean and clear art style and great sound effects make for a neat overall package.

Nice but too short game.
I love the animations and sound effects, all fits well together.

Maybe is this the intro of a longer story ?

Very enjoyable, great animations, graphics etc.

So short it feels like the intro to a game but still well worth playing and I look forward to the next installment/game!

I should have paid more attention when downloading this. I didn't realize just how short it would be, and by the time it was all over, I was pumped to play some more.

This game is far too gripping to be so short. There is a level of intrigue and mystery that will hook you in and make you start asking questions: Who am I? Where am I? What sort of deranged experiments was I conducting? Why is the facility crumbling around me?

Alas, that's exactly where it ends. By the time it gets to the part where things should start to unravel, it stops. It is the adventure game equivalent of a roller coaster that clinks its way up the first hill, only to stop at the summit and have its thrillseekers depart. All that mounting tension for nothing. A real let-down.

I would be more than happy to see more than ten minutes of gameplay from this title. Perhaps this was meant to be a demo for a longer experience. If that's the case, I'm more than ready for the full-length version.

Aside from its brevity, 'rein' is guilty of the greatest of all sins: grammatical inaccuracy. Too many hanging apostrophes and misspellings for me. The AGS forum has loads of proofreaders willing to lend a hand in these matters (myself included), and I wish more developers would take the time to seek them out.

Overall, I would give this game a 3/5 if I could. It's just too bad it stops when the going gets good

I agree to the others - It feels like an intro to a great game. Short but nice.

Rein-drops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet got ripped is dead
His key doesn't seem to fit
Those rein-drops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

Err... Sorry about that

I think the setting of the game, with the scientific research gone horribly wrong and everyone but the protaganist dead is a good one for a game, but it has been really over-used by now, so I think it would have been fun to see something more original.

It was over before i knew it, in more than one way...

This game manages to transport a claustrophobic, panic feeling. It's very short, so give it a try!
And Ascovel: best comment ever!

Nice little game, i loved the mood of the facility, the events going on fast, the puzzles, the game felt like an adrenaline rush. Really well done.
