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

​The full Point-and-click Adventure game > where YOU get to be the HERO!

YOU (your drawing/picture HERO) has been unceremoniously thrown out of the Royal castle. You find yourself left alone in a forest with nothing in your possession and you soon realise that you have been booted out since you were next in line to the throne!

You must use your wits and skills and, the help of your sister Abbey, to try and get back into the castle and back into your role, saving the locals in the process! This is the first part of what may be a 3 x part series depending on uptake and requires you to complete many tasks and some puzzles. 

The game is designed to re-engage kids into this genre and can be played WITH your kids.​ The game uses animated cartoon drawings as the playable character and voiceover dialog throughout!

This is our first full, free game written on AGS and we know you are going to LOVE it!

This game was written on the Adventure Game Studio platform (AGS 3.5.0). 

Adult players should turn Hints: off
(this makes the game a little harder)
For MS-Windows based computers only

A most delightful feature-length game. At first I thought this would be too easy/aimed for a younger audience, but I was quickly proven wrong. With hints available this could indeed be played by children of a younger age, but without using the hints, the gameplay is challenging to a high standard. Plenty of puzzles with voice acting/animations/score system/Lots to see and do.

I've playtested this one, so I'm biased, but I still recommend it. The game is very good for family play, but also quite fun for grownups. Now go save that kingdom!

<Click to Show Spoiler>WARNING: This fun game may engage you really well WITH your kids and take you away from something else you were meant to do!!!
