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

Sphonx lets you discover scientifically advanced technology and antique
artifacts on an archaeological expedition in an ancient Egyptian
pyramid. You are Ignacio "Iggy" Dias, a young and interested
archaeologist in the near future. He helps Dr. Allan Nowicz, an
experienced scientist and archaeologist who was involved in the
development of some of the most advanced technological breakthroughs in
recent archaeology. He is leading the current research on the dig site
and he's also managing the bureaucratic side of the expedition in Egypt
today. Dr Nowicz is very proud to have a Death Erasing Multispectral
Ultrawave Mummified Material Igniter Ray Device with him on this site.
It's purpose is to revive even partially conserved cells in old, very
old and even ancient Egyptian tissue and give it back its previous human

Of course, such advanced technology needs careful use and planned
application. So Dr Nowicz wants to wait for Dr Sebranovic to arrive, the
spiritual and logical father of the very advanced tissue reviving
device. Ignacio Dias, a studious but a bit clumsy apprentice working for
Dr Nowicz instead wants to finally see results and start the live study
of ancient life with support of the DEMUMMI-RAY rather yesterday than
waiting even longer.
Tension between the two clashing opinions
escalates and late at night Iggy sneaks into the excavation / laboratory
deep inside the darkest parts of the age-old pyramid only to get
involved in a centuries spanning adventure.

AGS Panel Review

"This is a quality product all around, well-written, good-looking and -sounding. Unfortunately, the story ends just as it gets going, making this more of a short story than a novel."

1 people commented on this game (newest first):

If my main criticism of the game is that I would have liked it to be longer, I guess it's done all right for itself. I liked playing this, particularly some clever puzzles and well written characters, but it also sounds and looks good.
