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

Lone Case: Locomotive Breath STORY: Dave Dell, once a glamorous detective, is now a dull and bland vision of himself, drinking himself out of his misery in The Swigging Bushman every night. With no friends, he travels to work every day with a scowl on his face and dark bags under his eyes. Years ago, he put a man named O'Riley in jail. But this man has escaped. And this time he has a nuclear device on a train. Will he be stopped? Or will the train reach it's location? Game Features: 1)Runaway 2 like Control Method. 2)Notebook (Discworld Noir). Official Walkthrough ------------------------- http://new.bigbluecup.com/yabb/index.php?topic=32113.0 Author's Notes: If you can cope with the bad scripted interface you might actually enjoy it.

The game had a good beginning and a good atmosphere (the rain script is just great), but you spend more time getting out of a hospital than trying to actually stop the bad guy. It also seemed rather illogical in places and in the end I was disappointed because some screenshots looked really neat whereas the game itself could have looked and felt way better...

I liked the main protagonist though so I will nevertheless try Lone Case 2.

Good luck for your next games!
