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

When a travelling lady-of-the-night finds herself running out of fuel on the way to the Big City, she discovers more than she bargained for in this gruesome gas-station. Relying on her wits and the help of her best friend and crack-fiend, Susie the Drug Addict, things start to go from “bad” to “weird” as she must not only find vital fuel for her car, but also put a stop to an armed robbery, defeat an ancient and evil (but extremely polite) cult, and show a young man that becoming a hippy is never the right answer. Can she fulfil the prophecy, and uncover the mystery of – THE PERFIDIOUS PETROL STATION?

The timeless story of a young woman needing gasoline, and nowhere near the giant leap backwards for womens’ rights you may think it is! Coming from a tradition of naughty humour and dodgy puns in adventure stretching back as far as “Leisure Suit Larry”, Nancy’s first adventure is a nostalgic romp into the kind of surreal story that only exists within adventure games.



Features:

Fully-voiced comedy adventure with a talented multinational cast Average play-length of around three hours (depending on how much you cheat) Disturbing social commentary on the issues of modern womanhood Retro-style art in the classic nineties style Surreal humour and dry British wit

I really enjoyed this polished little number. Good humour, fun puzzles - you get the feeling this would have been something of a classic if it had been released in the 90's. You can pick it up very cheaply, give it a shot!

Nice to see a full game from Technocrat, I was happy to pay for it. The world doesn't feel as real or immersive as the Technobabylon titles with a few unintuitive puzzles but overall good stuff.
