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

"A Son of Xenon" is a non-profit fan-made adventure game and prequel to Space Quest.
It has a similar graphics style to Space Quest III (or Police Quest 2 or Larry 2) meaning 320x200 EGA graphics with a lot of dithering effects; It is icon controlled and features a high quality original score.

The story opens on Roger’s home planet (shortly before Space Quest I) where we meet a hard-working and intelligent young Roger Wilco. A true son of Xenon. As the game progresses, we will learn how he became the unmotivated janitorial professional we all know and love. Also the sun is dying. It's a whole thing.

Feel free to contact the creator of the game for constructive feedback of any kind: boston193@gmail.com

Enjoyed playing it, looking forward to the next part. Was a little discontent though that i had to use external source to solve one puzzle (lift password). Apart from that, thumbs up !

I had fun with this game, but opening the robot in Roger's apartment is insane :P
I recorded a longplay with some deaths included :)

Lots of fun! Took me back to the good old days of adventure gaming. The humour is perfectly on point and graphics are brilliant.

The author helped me sort out a false positive "virus" detection on the rar file. This game is great. I give it 5 stars. I´m eager to see the sequel. All power to you Boston!!!

What a delightful prequel to what used to be my favourite adventure series.

I think this game captures the essence of Space Quest beautifully. And I very much appreciated the subtle humour throughout. (I think some games can go OTT on the humour-front). Throw in the graphics, the music, the aliens and robots, not to mention various character animations and close-ups, all leading to a very satisfying experience. I cannot wait to see another instalment.
