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

Impersonate the townsfolk to get things done in this game, but first you have to learn everything about them... Shifter is an escape the town point and click adventure with a twist!

AGS Panel Review

"A nicely realised, confident art style is Shifter's strong point, though it's also above average in most other aspects. A little short, but well executed."

This was a very lovely, well written little game! I felt very immersed playing it and the puzzle design was brilliant. I can't believe I haven't noticed this game before. Great job!

Neat little game, can definitely see the creators talent in it. Short but captivating.

One of the most unique games I've played in a very long time. I enjoyed it a lot and I hope there's more to come soon!! :)

Nice short game. It feels more like a training game, but the graphics are superb and the gameplay is different from the typical AGS game. Feels a bit like a casual game.

It reminds me to one of Ben304's games. Hoping to see more from the author.

Great game, good character development. (Totally sweet little Pan!) Also, i loved the graphics. Very nice idea, the Shifter, too. Definitely worth a sequel, you've got a good concept here. I think i'll put this one in my collection.
