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

Barahir's Adventure: Askar's Castle is a remake of the 1993 Atari game Barahir, and is a fantasy themed, 1st-person perspective, point and click adventure game with a slight rpg element in the form of a health system. The game has 8-bit graphics in a 320x240 resolution and uses flip-screen room transition.

I'd say this is a classic short-medium dungeon-type game. Except it is not really a dungeon it is a castle. The energy bar is quite foreboding and scary in the beginning, but your energy doesn't go down with time so there is no need to rush around.

One thing that I wasn't too keen on in the game is that some stairways lead to an instant death with no warning. Our poor hapless hero doesn't stand much chance of surviving in one visit. I wonder if the original Barahir was similar.

There are also some good elements. I did like how you can change the colour palette and there is also a selection of music. All in all, it makes for a decent little outing.
