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

Short is our hero. He is also approximately 4 feet tall, and made of blue sticks. Help him to escape from the mysterious blue room that he finds himself trapped inside, in this year's epic adventure, ShortCUT!

Short will face many dangers before he can escape, and death is always close. And humorous.

The download Mirror is actually a page with a small review.

Please remember to leave any feedback comments after playing the game. And don't forget to tell your friends!

By the way, Chris Jones himself loves this game!

...well, he might.
