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!

The Dark Trial is an adventure game that takes place in Hell.

He must reach the very depths of hell, and have to look into the Mirror of Souls....

This is only the demo version, contains the first three stages of the whole game.

It's a pity this demo wasn't made into a full game. Great mood in a game about an angel trying to get into hell. But there is some pixel hunting.

Nice game, which perfectly fits to my style (dark and mysterious). I like the handdrawn graphics and the main character. He looks cool. The story is much more original than most of the AGS games'. Some of the details shows that the project isn't completed, like the bgs in the menus, and some sprites, but these are just small problems, easy to solve later. I hope you will continue working on this project sooner or later.
