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

Sydney Claywood wakes in his alley one day to discover a new policy set in place by a joint venture between the political parties, churches and big businesses to rid the streets of homelessness and unemployment. There solution is a ‘final solution,’ of sorts.

Sydney decides that the only way to save himself and his friends is to go directly to the heart of the plan, the CBD, and argue his case. However, in the back of Syd’s mind is the constant idea that ‘Maybe I could, you know, just find a REAL job.

There is some suggestive and slightly rude content here. I'd only really recommend it for mature audiences.

AGS Panel Review

"Very funny, and fun to play, Sydney the Game, like Sydney the Character, is a little rough around the edges but lovable. "

10 people commented on this game (newest first):

The subject of the game is surprising and it adds greatly in immersion. The graphics are top quality and I also liked that it was well animated too.

Puzzles make you think and most of the solutions are quite logical. While dialogue was well-written, I think the discussions (selecting topics) were confusing couple of times and could be worked on in the future.

In overall, it's a delighting mid-length game, definately recommendable.

I'd love to see and play a sequel. Good work!

Good Game, though the ending was a bit pathetic :)

I had fun playing this game and found that the puzzles weren't too hard (though I did need help due to some major brain farts at times) and the graphics were simplistic but suiting and enjoying to the genre. All in all, I think the music really worked best for me (wink).. but I'd love to see a version with the full tracks put in (damn the losers who can't download more than 15 mbs!). I can't wait to work on another game with Ivan.

Beautifully worked graphics, puzzles that require some lateral thinking and an amusing storyline. What more could you ask for?

I really enjoyed the game! The puzzles weren't too hard and the characters were nice. Also, this game really works - you don't have to click a hundred times to make something happen.

Thank you to all those you have downloaded the game.

Had a lot of fun playing this! I look forward to the sequel.

Most of the puzzles were very logical. However, I was stumped early on because I kept overlooking some "minor" detail. Anyone who hasn't played the game yet, I'll just say this, make sure to look EVERYWHERE in the rooms when you're stumped. Just do like I did and pixel hunt for them :)

It could be better, not funny
2020-02-11 20:15:57 by pandabearlove
Great game so far, but I think I found a glitch. Not sure if it is since I can't seem to play any further.
I created the "pet" while in the pet store with the 3 items and the clerk disappeared. Don't know if she's supposed to be there talking through the door, or if her sprite is now for some reason not visible. Oh well.

I thought this was a good and funny game. I look forward to playing the sequel.
