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

Remake of the first “Before the Dark Crystal”. Longer and entirelly hand-drawn, this point & click adventure game is a fan-game of the movie “Dark Crystal”. Take control of a young Gelfling captured by the Skeksis, and survive in the Crystal castle until you find a way out. The security slider show you when you please the Skeksis or not : be careful not to upset them, or this will be a game over ! - Right click to look at something - Left click to walk and interact with something or someone Language: French, English *** All my games are available at : http://marionpoinsot.fr

An enchanting game, quite puzzling at the beginning, then pretty A->B afterwards, but I love the context in which it is written, and how it plays out.

Good game.

This game is absolutely beautiful, and the character sprites are perfect. The atmosphere is great and the music is superb. I wish there was a bit more puzzles, but mainly because I wanted to play more. I was very sad to see it end because Marion did such a great job of bringing the Dark Crystal back into our lives. Well done, and thank you for this wonderful piece of eye candy.
