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!

About this game

Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus to find someone. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.

As fate brings these two men closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a simple quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.

Price: $14.99

AGS Panel Review

"A fascinating cyberpunk thriller with proper hard sci-fi themes and superb atmosphere. Also features some fresh adventure game design ideas. Despite the lack of truly challenging and complex puzzles, pure excellence in all other departments."

7 people commented on this game (newest first):

This may well be my favourite AGS game yet. It looks beautiful, it sounds beautiful, it FEELS beautiful. It's dark, atmospheric, the voice acting is superb and the storyline is engrossing and riveting. I didn't know exactly where it was going to end up until the end which is novel.. I can often see exactly where a game is going, and I was never entirely sure with this.

The best thing about it, is I've come away from the game thinking it all over... ruminating but not ruing ;)

I cared about the characters and felt I got to know them well. The puzzles, though occasionally challenging, never felt inane, no pixel hunting, and no entire random things to progress the storyline.

My one down point on the whole thing was that I had NO idea from the demo that there would be an element of action (ie the guns and climbing boxes etc) but I managed ok. I don't really enjoy that kind of game much and am useless in that sort of situation generally, but I could turn combat down to easy! Haha

I enjoyed so much the game. A friend of mine recommended it and the game was a really unexpected surprise. Actually, I have recommended it for other friends.

The story is really good. Maybe, the game lacks in some animations and has some annoying bugs, but the whole game and the story is enough good to haven't in mind these issues.

The last stages/settings where the action is running give the feeling that the developer made them very fast. There isn't coherence between adjoining rooms (the character goes out by the left of the screen and, in the next setting, the character is coming in by the left again...).


Anyway, the whole game is highly recommendable. I offer to the developer my most heartfelt congratulations by his work.

I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. But Gemini Rue is even more amazing than that!
