Sidebar bottom
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

Welcome to The Block* where nothing is as it seems. Feel free to beat around the bush, discover the secrets of mysterious kitsch, explore a dilapidated old caravan, revel in the vague plotline and collect treasures along the way to win the game. For those bamboozled by Chalkman, play this one instead. Originally developed with AGS 2.07 sometime at the turn of the millennium, this is the remake using AGS 3.2.1. Enjoy! Note: * The name is in no way related to the reality series of the same title that first appeared on Australian TV years after this game was originally conceived. For those not familiar with this inane show, consider yourselves lucky.

Jazz is the defining word for this game and perhaps without the music it would not be easy to find it. It reminded me of Myst - the game and of Beasts of the Southern Wilderness - the movie. The use of photos for backgrounds and items works by allowing a fresh and rough look at things which fits the outdoors setting. I felt that the photos should not have been mixed with drawings( e.g. the golden key and the spider ). The puzzles may seem unsettling at times( e.g. breaking a window )since there is no story to motivate your actions, at least initially. This is how the game looks after only a few minutes of play. You should give it a try !

This was a good game even though it was a little hard to figure out what to do next in it at some points in the game.
