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 just loved this lovely short game! I don't know how to explain this well but it came across as using limited tools well to good effect - to me the graphics, although simply, were very arty with pleasing colours & I very much liked the story!

A very good vibe with this one. The puzzles are simple but the ambiance is spot on. Amazing what a good artist can do with few pixels and colors. I can't wait to play Fish Life.

An enjoyable game that is all set up to deliver a crunch in the storyline. I hope we will see more of this one.

Lovely game, loved the art, good job! (nod)
Was a nice walk in the beach, and I'm just sorry that we didn't really get to the "rescue" part. :~(
Puzzles were nice, but not overly complicated.

It's a beautiful and colorful little game in every sense of the word, my only real complaint being that you can accidentally get stuck in a dead end.

Fantastic game, absolutely loved the color scheme!

It's very polished for a one-month MAGS job. The writing is great and lots of humor, lots of visual gags (some raunchy ones, but it's about getting some in the summer -- what do you expect!? :D ).

The puzzles are all well-done, nothing head scratching and all felt satisfying. The 'hearts scratched into the wood puzzle' was very original and well-designed. There's a lot more depth than the sunny cartoon feel lets on!

Highly recommended to any adventure lover, or adventurous lover! (Seriously, there is a great makeout scene and everything! :D )

This was a really sweet game
I particularly love that electrically vivid pallet you have chosen, its a really strange thing but I never would have though these colors suit would suite the theme so well.
I tried this as native pixels, but also tried out playing with the filter and I have to agree the filter really dose add a touch of class to the whole look of it.
Another relatively short game I thought, as is understandable with a game jam. The animations where superb, little touches like the flag waving really catch my eye a lot. I got stuck a few times but managed to get through it, the dialogs where very amusing and all in all I thought this was a very neat experience. I would love to see a more fleshed out game made with this style for sure.
Great work on getting this in on time too.

Really nice stuff. Great attention to detail, wonderful sun-bleached atmosphere, fun puzzles. It's a shame you couldn't quite finish it up in time, but what we've got is really fun and I hope you keep working on it.

Really nice... especially the little... easter egg in one locker (I won't give away which). Oh, and I look forward to the complete version after the MAGS voting is over.

Nice graphics, with really good animations and sound effects which worked very well. The puzzles are bit simple, although there are some neat ideas, and the story itself is sweet.
