Sidebar bottom
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 admiral has sent a diplomate to solve the problems on one of his ships. The rest of the fleet has sailed, so why is this ship lingering?

10 people commented on this game (newest first):

Most of the game is finding and typing words.
This game is in fact not really related to ships.

Very clever puzzles for a short and satisfying game

The graphics are great and the puzzles original.

This was awesome and very engaging for the length of the game. I'm hoping and looking forward to a full length game. I'd suggest running with htis thieme.

Update: The game is now listed under short games, and is not referred to as 'demo' in-game.

The poem gave me troubles, but that's normal for me :)
Well done, I enjoyed this little one. Thank You!

A fun game and graphics very good, but puzzles were far too easy (and I completed it in under 30 minutes and there is no sound. Should be more placed under short games though - or is it a demo?

Nice graphics and an enjoyable _short_ game to play. I am curious why at the end the main character said it was a demo.

I found a few bugs too, one which caused me to start the game again.

Also there is no sound.

Apart from those gripes I enjoyed this game and especially liked the bits where you typed your responses.
I think there is a lot of potential with this game, a pity it is so short.
