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 need money fast so what'd you do? Well, you end up getting a job which involves going round the galaxy in search of a rare (illegal) drug for a large cash reward, of course.

With 4 different planets to visit, a short bonus section to unlock at the end, and..er.. probably some other attributes. In the 31st Decemeber build, the music soundtrack isnt complete so a lot is recycled. Any releases after that will have the full soundtrack. There's a walkthrough to get up to where the demo left off right here: http://www.agagames.com/agswalkthroughs/soldb.php?cmd=showGame&id=51 NOTE: Please read the readme.txt about the interface. LEFT-click is look, RIGHT-click is use, even when an inventory item is selected.

This was a fun little game. It's just a shame that the sequel never happened.

HAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA Great game!!!! Great humor ! Nice animations (Really big effort)!
But the end was CRAP! hahahaa no, it was excellent. You should be proud. Not to hard, not to easy, I got stuck a couple of times (That Goddamed stick to get the paper!!!).
An amazing trait of this game was it's unpredictability. You couldn't guess what was going to happen. When You had to toss the ring and you knocked out the rasta man instead was supreme.
Oh! I forgot! Great Sound & music. I grew addicted to the main theme. And it went along so well with the moments of the game.
Well thanks for making the game.

Please! don't avoid doing a sequel, no matter how long it takes. And Include pappabiscuit and Bastard! hahaha

This is a fun game.

I just wanted to say that, and that the ending sucks (in a Monkey Island 2's end way of sucking). This is not bad, you know; but now I want to play part 2.

Nice lighthearted SF comdey game providing light and relaxed entertainment.

Generally well-constructed puzzles — but quirky and sometimes annoying controls.

A very enjoyable game. :)

All I can say is... Wow! This game is awesome, a must download. There are loads of funny characters like the ship salesman, Pappabiscuit & bastard, the bounty hunter terminator, and mozes. It has a lot of similartities to monkey island... but that is ok. Only bad part is where you are trying to "slay the desert worm". Overall, I give it a 8/10!

Very nice game! Had some nice ideas and near the end the plot built up a lot. I noticed some similarities to Monkey Island, not that there's anything wrong with that. Well worth playing, for sure!

The game was cool, I ended up planting all the seeds, so I saw the "bonus section" at the end. Pretty funny. Some of the items and puzzles made little sense, but that's kinda the feel of the game anyway. A must play.

This game is very funny! Starts out slow at first, but once you get into it, it becomes quite comical. Some scenes and jokes are similar to those of older games (like the ship salesman), but still work nonetheless. A great adventure that I'm glad I gave myself the time to experience. BONUS SECTION IS A MUST SEE! If you haven't figured out where to plant all the seeds for the bonus section, find a walkthrough to help you, it's worth it. Can't wait for the sequel, and by the way, I did NOT think the ending was crap, I happened to like it :P (viewing the bonus section will make that last statement clear)
