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!

The music is great, I played in a lonely, rainy, dark, night and really liked the feeling and play of this short beautiful game.

A short, but beautifully crafted horroresque tale with a few unexpected twists. Highly recommended.

This game has a lot of charm, and more depth to it than first appears. Brilliant Christmas adventure.

Oh man, I loved that first encounter with Santa.. good stuff. :) Lovely looking game. I'm typically not a big fan of puzzles that require character movement, but only because they are often too glitchy, but yours were done well. Really like the story and look of the game.
