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!

About this game

Sgt. Reed has been tasked with descending into an abandoned underground
facility, activating the power generator and opening the main entrance.
things did not exactly work as planned, leaving Reed stranded
underground with no means of communication, most of the gear lost and
very little idea of what went wrong in the first place and, most
importantly, what lies at the bottom of the shaft...

Nice short game with fantastic pixelated graphics and McGyver type of puzzles and tense atmosphere.

Escape-the-room game with many "crafting" puzzles.
Recommended if you like the genre!

Good game. The craft dimension is probing and it looks neat. I'm curious to see where it goes next.
