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!

Wonderful graphics but poor interface, bugs, crashes and generall laziness ruin it. Too many objects just get a standard 'not interesting' response. There are things which look like interesting things which are unclickable a lot of the time. The location names only occasionally flash up on the map. The jokes were hit and miss (for me.) There are obvious things to try like buying fast food to shut up the kid which are not even presented as options. It's a waste of good graphics.

It looks good and interesting, but the gameplay is ruined by the poor interface.

I just didn't get the puzzles, or some of them. Pixel hunting always annoys me. The game also has some errors.

A good idea, though. The characters were nice.

The game was fun, although the animation speed is hyper when played on Linux with AGS 2.7, even at the slowest setting.

Players who like lots of references to other games will love this game. Also, you won't regret playing Casablanca... by the same author before this game, although they have nothing to do with each other. You'll see why, if you play it.

bugs: *semi spoilers*

In a few puzzles you need to "use" when you want to "get" an item out of an object.
At some point you'll be told to give somebody two things. After giving this guy the second item you're told you've only accomplished half of the task, although you can see both items on display; moreover, if you click on one of them, the game crashes. I almost abandon the game at this point thinking it was a fatal bug, but the puzzle counts as solved and you can proceed.

Very pleasant game. Lots of challenges. Many places to go and good graphics. Also what I liked was that you could pick up inventory at different times without upsetting the game.

The Blues Brothers poster should either be removed or unbugged.

Very good work. Thank you.

This is so like the older games that got me hooked! It took a bit of thinking, but was not easy enough to be considered a child's game

I recommend this game simply because of the award scene room - brought back memories hehe.
It was a bit buggy at the start, first if you look at the ticket man, second if you click on the blues brothers poster as said, but after that, it all worked well as far as I know. If you play with 320x200 resolution though, you can only get so far, when the game gets stuck.
But other than that, the puzzles were perfect, and nice humor too.

This was a very challenging game... But it was very buggy also... For Example: Any click on Blues Brothers poster... But otherwise, it was a good game... I give 8/10
Keep up the good work!

Highly recommended. Great graphics, challenging puzzles and good humour. An all-round great package. Will take you a while to complete too!
