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

The first in the epic three part adventure charting Derek Strange's accidental zapping across the galaxy and subsequent capture by the leader of one of two waring continents.

So far it has recieved a lot of positive comments from the amateur community (aside from the few bugs in the game *cough*)... but please be aware that the background art is a little naff this time around.

A great beginning to a two-part game. Can't wait for the rest.

Good level of humour but I thought this game was too short. Liked the characters. Also has some minor bugs.

Despite the awful graphics this game is actually really good! Dark Stalkey manages to compensate for the poor graphics with good puzzles, good music, good dialog, and good story, proving that the graphics aren't what makes a game good.

Unfortunately, despite majority of great puzzles, that last one was quite illogical. I would have liked to say that I made it through this game without a walkthrough, but unfortunately, that last puzzle just didnt make sense. Still, having said that, this game is awesome. Play now.

Puzzles were okay, not intuitive or coherently logical. The dialog was quite bad at times. Graphics are the weakest point of this game. Still, the ending was quite promising and left me waiting for more.

I will sum up the Graphics in this game with one word....


If you can't see past the graphics to actually play the game itself, that is a shame. For the cleverness of the dialogue, and the coherent construction of the puzzles, things that have been a part of adventure games long before graphics, are quite well balanced and nicely executed.

I have only gone through the game once, but as far as I can imagine, I do not believe there is any way to get stuck, and that is always a plus. The characters are hardly one dimensional. Each one seems to have their own motives, ideals, and such, apparent through context clues as opposed to being circled in red with trumpet fanfare.

All in all, very promising. I hope chapter two will be available, not too long from now. I am hooked!

This is a great game - I especially love the music, which does an awesome job of setting the mood of the game's locales. But its release seems to have been rushed a bit; TJH's full of strange little bugs :)

All I can say is that I can't wait for the other two parts. The puzzles were intersting and challenging. The dialog is fabulous. It's a game no person should deny themselves.
