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

Resonance merges classic point-and-click gameplay with innovative, contemporary storytelling thanks to its nostalgic pixel-art graphics, suspenseful plotline, and creative puzzles. A brilliant particle physicist has just died under suspicious circumstances, leaving the classified details of his powerful new technology locked away in a hidden vault. Now fate has thrown together four strangers - the scientist's assistant, a doctor, a police officer, and an investigative reporter - to find the vault before this potentially catastrophic weapon falls into the wrong hands. Controlling each of these protagonists, Resonance players will decide when they should work together, which secrets to guard, and who to trust. But loyalties will be tested as the clock ticks down to global disaster, and you may discover that you've been mistaken all along...

AGS Panel Review

"Engaging puzzles, an engrossing story, and beautiful art make this a hugely enjoyable commercial game, well deserving of 5 cups."

12 people commented on this game (newest first):

This was FANTASTIC! I'm gonna go out on a limb and say... best puzzles of any adventure game I've played (and I've played a lot!).

The puzzles are where this game really shines. They make you really figure stuff out for yourself, and the best ones make you feel like a genius when you do. They're much more Return of the Obra Dinn than, say, Monkey Island. Still, they manage to slot nicely into the game world, without feeling contrived.

Often, you'll have to prove you've understood a puzzle solution by using the game's (truly innovative) memory system, which allows you to ask characters about any hotspot (by dragging the hotspot into your 'short-term memory'). You'll also uncover long-term memories - short videos that you can replay at any time. These can be used, for example, to contradict something another character has told you, à la Ace Attorney.

There's a good mix of other puzzle types, too - ones that don't use the memory system, but still require real deduction. It seems clear that some have multiple solutions (you'll be controlling up to four characters at once, each with their own abilities). However, I haven't tested this yet.

As for the story and characters, they were solid enough to keep me hooked throughout. However, I doubt they'll leave a lasting impression on me, unfortunately.

If you play this type of game solely for the story and characters, I'd still recommend Resonance as a good yarn. However, if clever puzzles are also a big draw for you, you simply MUST play this game.

I can’t wait to wait a bit and play this again. It’s fantastic!

7 years on, it's still a great game. This kind of game never ages. I bet I'll play it again in a few years time. Some puzzles were really hard even with the walkthrough but it was worth persevering.

A deeply engaging game - one of my favourites.

I'm usually into more light-hearted stories -- but I couldn't miss out on our own indie AAA title, now could I? ;) And it was more than I could've expected. It was exciting, thrilling, smart -- and beautifully executed. The graphics were gorgeous and the cast were spectacular (I liked Logan's performance even more than in Primordia -- which says a lot). They made the characters even more relatable (the front desk lady at Antvorta being my favorite of the bunch, her online romance was great comic relief).The puzzles were clever, logical and fairly intuitive. I did have a hard time jumping between different menus (and some other minor issues) -- but the GUI was great in how much freedom it allowed. I also kept thinking how much the whole story reminds me of Broken Saints, a flash graphic novel: four strangers connected by fate, a grand conspiracy involving new, groundbreaking technology with great potential for abuse... A tech nerd and girl haunted by nightmares (those sequences were my favorite, very surreal and dark)... Not nearly as trippy (except for the nightmare scenes, maybe), but still -- quite a ride

revolutionary, I hope more developers realise the potential of this game's memory system and use it. It is the best innovation in genre since a long time.

It's not overstating it to say that this is one of the best adventure games I've ever played.

Great classic feel while still being innovative, and not at all derivative. Amazing story with great, unique characters.

One of strongest game experiences I had for a quite some time.

Just FYI, this game is not 'mild' language but 'strong' language. Couple of F-bombs and other colorful words.

A worthy multi-award winner. I loved the fact that you could use anything in your location or inventory as a conversation topic, an innovative and highly effective feature.

This may very well be my favourite AGS game.

My first memory of acquaintance with this game is a feeling of astonishment by the amount and quality of coding put into every detail. Being used to "default" "old school" adventure user interfaces, I just did not expect such an elegant GUI design.

Second thing are animations and backgrounds. Although Resonance features low resolution graphics, the developers were able to produce realistic and seamlessly looking images of world and characters, where every move and action may be distinguished without problem. You may find enjoyment in simply watching how people are walking around the room :).

The story is very interesting and intriguing. Four characters, every one of which have his or her own purpose, opinion, memories and even dreams. You keep wondering, are you playing the "good" or secretly "bad" character.
