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!

This is a very sweet game. Funny music, sweet and fluid animations and a little story that makes sense in itself topped with some puzzles and a small (sweet) shooting minigame (no blood!) make it a game for young and old!

A lovely little game. The art was wonderful and the tone and overall feeling were just right for the setting. Overall, I'd definitely recommend playing this one and I'll be checking out more from these creators :)

This is a good short little adventure game for all candy's fans and the quests in this game are not too hard.

Is this an epic rescue quest for the youngest adventurers in the afternoon? Sure, and by far one of the sweetest. Playthrough took me around 37min. Is it good? Yes. But it's not your common 'muffin meets bagle' rom-com. Being a dunkin' funride throughout, this is a coming-of-age story of a young female dessert. What makes this one-month-accomplishment stand out is its unmatched quality and pure love for freeware adventure-making.

The creative work by Dutch illustrator Miez with additional art by cat is a real treat: Warm and lush colors, yet never oversaturated. Impressive special fx! Original and tasty characters, especially the yummy female lead. With blending digital handdrawings and pixel mousework so well together... what talent! Besides, it's just these illustrations which makes this hilarious story-setting written by cat believable. I loved the humorous puns and catchy dialogue, relaxing to read with the colored font. She also pulled off all the technical part, the gameplay is convenient and polished up to a gold-finish.

Puzzles are easy to tackle for beginners (like still me), but have an absurd and anarchic twist as in 'Sam and Max'. In other words, some deal with exploring, socializing, not giving up, and some require a little mindwork, e.g. 'open locked door with candystick'. Still being all logical in respect to the physics laws of a sweet shop.

Storywise, the linear narrative unfolds not stepwise like a family saga. As opener you are confronted with a tough challenge, solvable in a couple of tasks. Just like in the classic Hercules myth. Happy-go-lucky Toffee has to team up with other delicious inhabitants and take responsibility for her sugartown. This allows her character to progress a little. First naive, then compassionate, then proud, then.... In the end, she lives up to the expectations of both her in-game father, respected mayor donut, and myself. And you benefit by knowing how far you are into the game without having an oldschool achievement point system.

The antagonist, a melting inferno by 100% cacao butter, is both a little frightening as well as exciting, well suited for young players. And you feel rewarded and surprised by the grand finale. The two questions it derives are just the icing on the cake:
(1.) Since when do we commercial-like value in MAGS?
(2.) Will I be able to revisit Toffee Trouble in, let's say 12 years, with hopefully my own kids?

I give it 16 out of max. 18 points (aka 1-).
mostly because I was also looking forward to Gigadeath 10+ in their announced "Eruption"-disaster game. But that turned out to be just a friendly hoax, right

A thoroughly enjoyable game, short as you'd expect from a MAGS game but beautifully made.

I just got finished played the game and now I must check in at the "Inn Sulin" hotel that I imagine exists somewhere in Creamville for my detox...

See you all in a day or two after room service finally stops telling me to donut try ordering any more desserts...
