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

Forget Holmes. Forget Poirot.
Detective Daniel Wilkins is the man for the job!


SLEUTH (2020) is a rebooted "idiotic point and click" version of the original 1983 text-based “whodunit” DOS game of the same title. A murder has taken place at Bastard Estate and you must interrogate the resident houseguests to find the murderer. Be quick, or else the murderer may decide to get rid of you first! As is customary in these sort of detective games, you should also find the murder weapon for good measure.

I love the writing, it is very funny and clever. The randomness of the game is really nice too. It took me a few tries, but I managed to finally solve one. The graphics, while simple, are cute and the animations are a nice touch. Fun game!

It's not a graphic adventure but a kind of simplified "Cluedo" game. No puzzles to resolve...just find a pair of items and talk with a few characters to decide who's the killer. That's all.

Somehow, despite the simplicity of its gameplay and graphics, it's highly replayable as far as the items, criminals, characters and killer are made in a procedural way...so, every game is different from another.

Love it. It's a the kind of game I will play again every now and then. It would be perfect with a save function.
