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!

It was a surprise to see a game based on Donnie Darko but then a big dissapointment because I was expecting more. And the digitized backgrounds were ugly, made in a hurry I guess. And then it's short and just Frank tells you to do three things with not much of a meaning. I'd expect a real Donnie Darko based game with a good scenario or even playing again the scenario of the movie.

Really good game but would have loved it to be longer.

The mood in this game was good, and Frank talking to you at various points (the line about the pills is excellent) was very nice.

Having liked the movie, I'd LOVE to see this expanded into a more complete game, starting off more or less as it did (very simplistic) and evolving into a more involved and complex story that would deal with Donnie's emotions, his relationships with family and friends, his time at school, etc. And I'd REALLY be enthused to see it go from there and PAST the conclusion of the movie and into a further epilogue of the story. Now THAT would really be something.

Still, for what it was, this game was alright. Could have used a touch more complexity, though, both in terms of puzzles and character/ plot devlopment (reveling more about the old lady, for example, would have been a step in the right direction).

This game had a ggod atmosphere. Even though I haven't seen the movie, I still enjoyed it.

Gotta love Donnie Darko.

This game is fantastic, believable sprites and best of all: Frank's there! (Well... sort of.)
