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

"This game has so much style, but it's extremely short even for a MAGS game and the puzzles seem to be an afterthought to the actual story."

5 people commented on this game (newest first):

I liked the idea and the mechanics. Very well done.

I have some expectations in a MAGS game- I expect a short and traditional game. NTE delivers and I didn't feel disappointed after the ~20 minutes I spend on it. It was like picking up a pleasant "More Of The Same" paperback- presentation is very nice, and the story works out well enough, so well worth a look for anyone who prefers a serious tale to wacky fantasy.

I liked the general idea and the execution was quite good. I'm in love with the beautiful portraits! :)

The gameplay was pretty simple and the puzzles easy but I didn't mind that at all. It was a nice and original diversion as long as it lasted. Thanks a lot for sharing it!

Another short game in the vein of the author's previous "A Woman for all seasons." This time I found the pacing not as good, but the game adds a gimmicky interface that makes it quite interesting to play; too bad it's length.

Having just played the previous game and wished for more, it was nice to join once again an old friend, who has a supporting role in this game.
