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

My second game, and its another MAGS!

It's a rather short game, with a simple crime plot, but as you can see, I spent most of my time experimenting with a custom GUI. I find MAGS a good opportunity to improve my skills, so this time around I was making a custom GUI from scratch to improve my scripting skills. I was also trying to improve my character art, with mixed results!

A nice little game that you can progress through and finish quite quickly without getting stuck.

The experimental "action menu" interface is a nice idea, but it needs some work - if you click close to an edge of a room, half of it is off the edge and can't be seen or accessed; sometimes the text displayed when an action is selected is obscured by the menu (the menu should really be hidden first); and it would be nice if the options were highlighted as you moved the pointer down the list.

Another odd bug too - restarting the game takes you to where you left off rather than back to the start; if you go into the final room again after restarting the game, there is someone there who ignores you who wasn't there when you entered that room last time round.

Other than that, the plot holds together and has some good ideas. It's worth playing.
