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

Winner of the January 2011 MAGS competition, theme "Death." A young magician 'dies' on stage and must re-invent himself in order to save his dreams of stardom.

AGS Panel Review

"Fun, straightforward "3 Quests" game about a young wanna-be magician seeking means to succeed in his dream profession. Solid, attractive visuals, but the audio side could be a bit richer."

A first game, and done in such a short time: Amazing what Duncan did here! Logical, interesting puzzles that never leave you stuck, a nice cast, and neat, clean artwork. For a short game there's quite some complexity to the puzzles, too- defenitely worth the half hour you may ned to play through it!

If anything, the GUI doesn't blend too well into the game...

Lovely little game.

Lots of good things about it, looks great, is simple but engaging and well worth anyone's time to play.

Puzzles are a touch on the easy side but there is more than enough here to keep you interested for the short length of the game.

Looking forward to your next game already!

this game is really different from other small games, because it uses original humour that old adventure games had, like situational humour when some sentences are displayed longer or need a moment to appear, so it's like the people are speaking like that. i very much like this and haven't seen this kind of humour for quite some time. big ups there, i would really like to see a longer game made by those people! :)

great find-some-objects-to-become-a-pirate (or a magician) game. Many little clever puzzles and nice drawings (especially backgrounds).
Play it!

A quite polished game. It's fun to play, and the difficulty is just right. Some objects are slightly hard to find at first, but not too hard, so I didn't lose interest.

Some of the hot-spots could use some adjusting, but overall a good short game. It doesn't awe, but it's fun.

A very well made and executed project. DuncanFX obviously put a lot of time and effort into the creation of this game and despite the tight deadline of a MAGS game, it doesn't feel rushed at all.

The puzzles are very easy and the game does not provide a large challenge, but it is fun to play and well worth the time I spent playing it. Bravo.

A very enjoyable little game. Highly recommend as a fun game for when you have an hour or two to waste. Check it out!

Great game, perfect for a first one, go play it!

This is the first game from DuncanFX, but it doesn't show. It looks good, it's fun and it's not too difficult.
