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

Life was pretty peaceful for Atl the Aztec goat herder. That is until the legendary El Chupacabra showed up to decimate his four legged friends. Against such a mighty foe, how can Atl save the day? Maybe with a little divine intervention? Join our cowardly goat herd on his journey and find out in Goat Herd and the Gods! Goat Herd and the Gods is a short point and click adventures game, and is the second title from Dropped Monocle's team.

AGS Panel Review

"It's nice to see a game that tries a setting besides the usual stereotypes. The story is simple but engaging, the graphics are excellent with very good animations and even short video sequences and there is also a fitting soundtrack. However, the puzzles - while rather easy - feel a bit forced and unnecessarily complicated with lots of walking forth and back. None the less, this is a game to enjoy for the great humour and high production value."

A really neat game. Like the commenter before me said, the graphics look very clean and polished. The story and dialogs are funny. I enjoyed playing this game.

This is one of the first games in a while that I enjoyed so much I played it straight through. A really solid, well-produced piece.

- The graphics and animation are *superb*. Excellent 2D cartoon work.
- The humor was great. I rarely investigate all dialogue choices but I clicked through everything this time around. "Go for Tlaloc." :)
- Composition-wise, the whole game feels really polished from the intro to the ending credits.

Cons: (The few and unimportant things that in no way affect how much I liked this game. :)
- One pixel-huntish puzzle item. But once I knew generally what I needed, at least there wasn't too much to explore to find it.
- A few background items around that make you think they'll be involved in puzzles and never come into play.
- This game is begging for voice acting. :) Morgan Freeman needs to be the narrator.

Overall, fantastic job, guys. I would *love* to see an extended sequel with more puzzles
