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

Can't tell you what this game is about because the first puzzle is to find out where Melrin (the hero of the game) is and how he got there and why.

This is an updated version of the previously posted game. The GUI and screen resolution has been changed. This is also the full game while the previous posting only contained part 1.

i liked the game, however gameplay disappointed me. i had to click inventory items several times before they would mix (for example in making the levitation spell) so i just gave up in frustration.

The first Melrin game really suprised me. I downloaded it on a whim, not really knowing anything about it, and I ended up really engrossed. Developed from a demo into a four part, epic tale, Melrin will appeal to fans of the Zelda games and the like.

Taking place in a wonderful fantasy land, Melrin offers a range of huge locations to explore, all of which create a beautiful atmosphere for the game. The graphics are really attractive and I loved exploring the kingdom. Melrin encounters very little life-threatening danger on his journey so the vibe of the game was relaxed and thoroughly delightful. As I have said before about the Ben Jordan games, Melrin is like a lovely memory of a Saturday morning cartoon you watched as a kid.

I guess the main criticism I have of Melrin is the shallow characterisations. Although Melrin is an amiable enough lead, the characters he meets along the way are very developed, offering only straight to the point dialogue. There are no real verbal exchanges to cherish here. On the plus side, this does make the games very pacy and Melrin himself has some amusing dialogues with the players themselves.

Generally the puzzles are fine. I love the idea of having to collect Melrin's magic spheres to regain his powers and whenever I came across a new sphere I got very excited to find out what new power I would obtain. Occasionally the odd event didn't make sense SPOILER: "Now how shall I get off this island? Oh look, here an empty hot air balloon for no reason". I thought that was pretty weak, especially since Melrin only recently stole a rope which was holding a boat in place, causing the boat to float off-screen. I was expecting the boat from earlier to drift up to the island, which I thought would be really clever. Oh well SPOILER END. However, overall the puzzles should keep you playing for a good amount of time without making you want to bury an axe in your computer.

Melrin is a really great game, then. I fail to see how most people would not find something to enjoy in this little treasure. A relaxing, attractive and fun experience which everyone should play when they get the chance

I loved the feel of this game. Nice graphics and the puzzles was good too. Just a little warning, you can die on several places in this game so save often!

Good game. Really pleasant. I enjoyed playing it. Got stuck a few times but that is only normal for me.

I will now go to the second game.

I liked this game a great deal, prob due to the rpg feel to it. The spells as inventory items were rather creative too. The puzzles were a tad easy tho. And I felt the rooms were too sparse. The rooms were big, with only one or two items in it.

But that said, I still enjoyed the game..very much.

I played part 1 of this game before, but it has been so many great improvements to it by the author. It's simply excellent I loved it! However maybe this now should fit in the "full length games" category?
