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

Her mother's hatchday is just around the corner and Zniw is trying to find the ultimate gift! This young yellow female dinosaur is armed with a sharp tongue but seriously lacking in navigational skills. As unfortunate events unfold, Zniw ends up far from her hometown of Wajapulka. While desperately trying to find her way back she stumbles in on a major problem in the neighboring village...

Inspired by cartoons, adventure games and edutainment titles from the 90's, Zniw Adventure is a 2D point and click title full of cartoon dinosaurs. It features a comic book-esque art style, frame-by-frame animation, and unlockable goodies like concept art and minigames. The in-game encyclopedia fills as you encounter prehistoric creatures allowing you to read more about them. Enjoy the prehistoric world in an unique cartoony style!

AGS Panel Review

"This family-friendly game has lots and lots of extra-material, and the game itself is like playing a cartoon. Outstanding writing, music, graphics and animation."

3 people commented on this game (newest first):

I totally love this dinotastic adventure masterpiece! Lovely and beautiful animations with likable and cool dino characters!

If you love games like The Curse of Monkey Island and other adventure gems from the 90's, you will enjoy this game as well!

Please, give this game a play!

This game is very special! It is entirely hand drawn with traditional animation style that you don't find in many games nowadays, and playing it felt like playing in a motion picture cartoon.

The main character is so cute that I just couldn't put this game down. Most of the puzzles make sense, and I found myself peeking in the walkthrough only rarely when I really felt stuck, such as of a certain location that I didn't realize was reachable to walk to and I missed it back and forth until I read in the walkthrough that it's there.

The game has a built-in encyclopedia - not a real one but more of a fiction that contains information about many of the existings in the game; through your adventure you travel through different locations, and encounter with many characters, plants and other stuff. All these fill your encyclopedia with information while you travel, and you can access it to read further about the specific thing you're interested to learn more about. A very nice addition with wonderful drawings.

Music is another thing I very liked in this game. The soundtrack is so well made that it "swallows" you into the colorized drawn locations and atmosphere, as if you're actually there.

All that said and I haven't even mentioned the story yet - well, this game has an excellent (and funny!) story with many surprises, which makes you want to keep playing it to find what happens next until you fulfill the game.

I'm 38 and really enjoyed this game from start to finish, and I highly recommend it for all ages from kids to adults.

The only thing that this game doesn't have is speech, but don't judge a game only because it has no speech in it and give it a chance nevertheless. You won't regret.

I hope you’ll find this review helpful and enjoy playing this game the same as I did.

One of the very few adventure games that are wholesome fun.
