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!

AGS Awards Nominations

Nominated, Best Freeware Game Created with AGS 2018

A fine game, a nice game in its own right but the nostalgia is so strong! :-)

What an absolute absorbing game for the ages. This could very well be the game of the decade! I know there is some competition out there, but the pure animation, thoughtfulness in design, graphics, and one of the most exciting games in AGS history should truly bear fruit! (which that delightful creature may enjoy).

For the creator, this taxed all of my brain, but without hints, I slowly meandered through to it's conclusion. Absolute thanks for the entertainment.

There's so much about this game that I could praise, from the innovative mix of art and gameplay styles to the great story and puzzle design. But I think the highest compliment I can give it is that it managed to create a true world that I will miss being in and look forward to returning to one day - something I feel about all the greats of this genre.

On paper, the whole idea for this game is (forgive me) one that I should hate - a meta-y, fan-remake-type mess. But somehow it works so well. (When I first saw the screenshots, I thought it looked amateurish, because I was thrown by the mishmash of resolutions, etc. If that's what anyone else is thinking, don't. It is anything but.)

Get this game now.

I was like "oh wow" when i saw the latest installment. I LOVE this series. And the latest installment is just even way better than the previous ones. A true work of love and art. All hail adventure games!!
First off, there is an awesome lot of detail and really gorgeous scenes in the game. Interesting and original puzzles (I loved the mindswap puzzles and the Momo puzzle). The cut-scenes were really drop-dead gorgeous. Must have been a great lot of work, but oh, how beautiful. There were some good unexpected twists (2D / 3D)
Also, everything blended into a really awesome, immersive game. No loose ends, no jarring incongruities.
(there was only one thing i wondered at: Dylan has the same stripes as the critters! connection? Something for the next game?)
All in all, thank you for delivering - again - an awesome piece of work!

Akril's "Adventure" series is a fantastic love letter to the genre, and the third installment is no exception. While it's recommended you play the first two games to familiarize yourself with the characters (and avoid spoilers), this third game shines because of all the original content and innovation that Akril brings to the table.

Most of the game is set in the "Mega-Game", an open-world filled with different art styles, where you'll wander from a 16-color desert at night into a lovingly painted daylight forest. Further into the game, you'll explore an area that I didn't even believe was possible in an AGS game, but blew my mind when I first saw it. The wildlife in particular was a major highlight for me, as a lot of animation and attention to detail went into bringing forest animals, sea life, and many other creatures to life.

The game's puzzles are challenging, but fair. I got frustrated on a couple, but when I eventually figured out the solutions, they seemed obvious in retrospect. Even the game's moon logic somehow fits within the game's internal logic, making for a few very memorable puzzle moments.

Cinematically, the game's cutscenes look wonderful. Akril puts a lot of work into her animation and can compose an exciting story sequence. During the game's dramatic finale, I had flashbacks of "Broken Sword" and "Curse of Monkey Island" as all the quick closeups and camera angles washed over me. It was a very exciting moment to see unfold, and a great payoff for a great game.

So I highly recommend this title! Check out the other two first, then jump in and enjoy the charm, innovation and wit of "Adventure: Welcome to the Genre"

This is a really great game just like all the others in the series. I would highly suggest this to anyone.

I solved the whole game without resorting to hints of any kind and it was HARD but very rewarding, just like playing an adventure game back in the '90's when when you were stuck you were stuck and that was that.

I felt I was in good hands and that the puzzles would feel fair even after I had solved them and I was right.

Do yourself a favour and play this game without hints or a walkthrough.

It will take you a while (it took me about 20 hours) to do so and you WILL get stuck a LOT, but trust the game designer like I did:

You are in good hands here and everything does make sense in the end.

Awesome, 5 cups all round! THIS is adventure gaming with a moral: never lose your faith in adventure gaming, never forget its history!

I love this game! One is totally immersed in the genre and history of 40 years of writing. The puzzles are, as Sherlock Holmes would say "A 3 pipe problem", yet all are solvable and the graphics are appropriate to the time and game(s) applicable. Storyline is superb, as engaging as the "Ben Jordan" series. If you haven't played the other 2 in the series then do so. You MUST play this.
