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

You are Paula and you want to visit the Wonderland...

Right... the one that Alice once visited.

But the gate to Wonderland is closed and you hear of a murder that happened there!

OK, this is my second game, hopefully with a more appealing story, but unfortunately with no better graphics and still no sound.

Enjoyed the plot and enjoyed solving some tough tasks, but got fed up waiting for Paula to walk anywhere as she was so slow. Music would have also been a welcome addition.

Whew. An interesting idea, but a lack of logic behind a few of the tasks you had to complete was simply frustrating. That aside, I guess I hoped for a dreamier feel to a game taking place in such a whimsical land.

The story had some good points, mind you, and I applaud Straston for not just sticking with all of the typical Wonderland characters (some new ones were added).

Furthermore, I dare say that some appropriate music would have helped the game dramatically, as a whole lot of atmosphere could have been built up in the game (when you're dealing with Wonderland AND murder, afterall, I think that music would be a welcome addition to highlight the mix of wonder and of tension).

There does seem to be some good ideas at work here overall, though, and so I'd hope to see more from
Straston in the future.
