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

Lucas is just about ready to embark on an epic adventure with his friends. Unfortunately fate has other plans. Trusty sidekick Cryo the Hamster is being attacked by a murderous cat. Due to a terrible mishap, Lucas is locked in the basement before he can react.

Help Lucas find a way to solve the many issues and finally exit the vault in Day of the Hamster.

Classic pixel art graphics and real Roland MT-32 music recordings are used to lend an authentic retro vibe to the game.

This was a real joy to play! Funny and challenging and good-looking. It's made in the style of DotT, and the puzzles are very well designed. Recommended!

This is one of the best short games made with AGS that I've ever played. Everything is at least good - the graphics and music are very nice, the humour often hits the mark, but the real joy is in the puzzles - they are absolutely excellent. I especially loved the hamster maze puzzle, that was really clever.

Thoroughly recommended - even more so if you liked Maniac Mansion / DotT.
