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!

I could leave a detailed review, but I'll keep it simple with: This has to be the best AGS non-adventure game of all time!

Probably the best non-adventure game made in AGS. It proves that AGS is a versatile engine, and that everything is possible in AGS. Also, retro graphics by Jim Reed are outstanding.

AprilSkies surprised everybody with this one. Outrun on AGS? Yeah, right! But she pulled it off (in a month!) and delivered a extraordinaire piece of software: smooth, polished and feeling very pro material.
Pixel art at its best, super cool arcade soundtrack and the AGS engine running a racer game like a breeze. Congrats to all the team, games like this showcase the engine potential and versatility. Well done!

I am very impressed and curious about you did that with AGS !! very great work !!

I can't believe this was made with AGS. It's an old school Amiga style racer. Really enjoyed it, really good work

Great fun. I want to play this in a proper unit at the arcades.
