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!

Football Game gets you with it dark screens and moody atmosphere that is reminiscent of Twin Peaks and other mystery series while it is set in the 1980s and features cars and other things from that time. Sometimes it's hard to see the objects because it's so dark on the screen, but you get used to it pretty fast and enjoy it for the atmosphere. The portraits of the talking characters get the job done but somehow look strange, but this fits the strange mood of the game. The music by Jupiter C is really great and sets the tone of the game while the soundeffects are fitting but rather sparse. The story is somehow predictable but the way it unfolds works great and makes you want to find out more all the time, so this is done right.

An interesting if short game, some sections relied a little too much on going back and forth but otherwise well designed puzzles. Where this game is very strong is in the atmosphere it creates and the ending that leaves you pondering long after you've finished playing the game.

The AGS website simply labels all links to commercial games as "Download Demo" as far as I'm aware? There is no demo for this game, as it is short! The game is also available via itch.io: https://shaun9991.itch.io/footballgame
