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!

This was a fun game with some pretty dark humor.

Excellent game! I don't want to contemplate how long it must have took to do all those animations, I can't even do a walkcycle myself.

Did you know this was included on a PC Format coverdisk, issue 226? That's where I got it from, too big for me to download myself.

One thing: Once you've thrown the brick the first time, it's kinda hidden behind the shards and it's not obvious to pick it up again. The bicycle tube was a bit of a pixel scrape too.

Otherwise, excellent. Hoping for a sequel!

First of all I would like to say, that the effort to make this little game must have been incredibly high. Especcially the short video animations reach a high quality level and make the game very immersive.

Graphics in the game are done well, although faces and characters in the game don't have a lot of character in my eyes. All characters in the game seem to have quite hollow personalities so I really didn't fall in love with one of them. But anyway, they are drawn in a very clean detailed way.

What I didn't like were the homogenic puzzles: Most of them were clichee puzzles. There were about five "open-the-locked-door-or-cabinet" puzzles. This is really a pitty, because it's just "fill-the-game-with-nothing" stuff.

Music was well sampled and fit very good to the game. The interface was comprehensible and clear as well.

The most disappointing thing about the game was the ending. I expected some kind of final message. But it just was finished when I managed to leave the prison. I think a short game like this one shouldn't be finished in this way with a "to be continued" sentence. The great credits video in the ending was just a very small satisfaction for me...

Also the quantity of blood and unnecessary violence didn't really fit and was kind of misplaced in my eyes...

So my final conclusion is "Earl Mansin" is a very detailed and perfected game, but it doesn't really have a soul. I prefer "Earl Bobby" to "Earl Mansin" after all...

An enjoyable and hilarious game!

When I get to play certain video games, I have the impression commercial video games quality can be surpassed. When I see how much effort was put into this (cutscenes, voices, graphics), I definitely think Earl Mansin was one of these games. Such a pity this one wasn't a full-length game!
Good luck with your next game!

Everything in this game cries high production value. From the very particular graphics, to the encompasing sounds and carefully picked music. It features full motion video animations, voice overs and witty dialog.

The puzzles might be a bit too logical for their own good, as that makes them pretty easy. Still, I enjoyed solving them.

A must play for everyone (except little kids, maybe).

I loved this game! i hope there will be a sequel. I have a dial-up connection and i hate to download a big game and it turns out to be crappy. This game was well worth the download :-)

good job :)

Very nice game. The puzzles are great, the graphics charming and the voice acting superb.

This is probably the funniest and coolest adventure game i've seen in a while. Great job!

I like it. I make it 7 rooms, but maybe the first doesn't count as "fully interactive" as there isn't a lot to do there. Not one for the kiddiewinks as there is a lot of gore...

Fun, logical puzzles, funny story, great music, awesome graphics, and superb voice acting. Can't wait for part 2!
