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

This is our first test game with AGS, by our I mean that the game was a family effort with the ideas and voices of my 10 year old son.

We've been working on it during lockdown and finally we found the time to finish it. Game plot:

Roger gets a distress call from his grandpa (Dr. Helmholtz), a crazy scientist that has just found a cure for a mortal virus. Unfortunately, there is an evil organization that has been spying on Dr Helmholtz and wants to make money selling the stolen cure. Roger goes to the lab, but his grandpa has been kidnapped. His job is to find/solve a series of puzzles to rebuild the cure....and try to save his grandpa and the world!

Technically this game could be considered as an escape room, as there is only one room where the action happens.

Current version v1.0.0.3

AGS Panel Review

"Good-looking and family friendly escape-type game that needs a bit of polish."

The game plays much better now. The bug with the cable is triggered when looking at it, not taking it. You really ought to start a thread in the forum in the Completed Games section - this is not the intended place for bug reports. (Or check your inbox for PM.) :-)

Hey selmiak, thanks for commenting!
The walk speed can be changed in the settings menu (there is a vertical red tube where you can modify it). Thanks for the tip about the folder (we did not know that!). In our version getting the cable is fine...did you have other items in the inventory? Does it happen always?

interesting game.
looking at the cable under the soundsystem made the game crash though.
the walk speed could be faster. And you don't need to supply the "data" folder, only the "windows" folder is enough and you only upload 700m instead of over 1GB!

Hey heltenjon, thanks for the feedback! I just uploaded a new version with no relevant items in the inventory.
The bug with the moving saw is not fatal...it tries to encourage you to go through the other door, have a look at the blinking switch :)

The game is colourful and kid friendly. Unfortunately, you start off with all the inventory items you're supposed to find later in the game. There also is a fatal bug when you try to touch a moving saw. Despite this, the game is charming and fun to play. For a better experience, pretend you don't have the inventory items yet, and use them after finding them in-game.
