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?)

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

This is the second part of the Earl Bobby trilogy. You should play "Earl Bobby is looking for his Shoes" first to understand everything. The worlds most famous Scottish Earl continues his quest for the sense of life. And this time he is looking for something even more important than his shoes. This time he is looking for his balls...yes, his balls.

STORY: After Earl Bobby succeeded in finding his shoes, comb, kilt, golf clubs, car and ultimately the way there, he happily reached the Glenfiddich Golf Club to pursue one of his favorite diversions: Playing golf. But soon he recognizes that his destiny to lose important items has followed him: One of his balls gets robbed by a bird. When he tries to search for it, he soon gets involved in a complex plot, in which he has to face the famous golf player Tiger Woody in a tournament. Baron Mucki the millionaire and Lula Hankingfire the young nymphomaniac will surely help him to win the contest. But this isn't enough. He will have to solve lots of weird puzzles to finally find his balls.

The puzzles were sometimes a bit far-fetched, but all in all, a great game. I also loved the old-school conversation system.

What did bother me was the seemingly random appearance of Mucki and the two women. I understand it's funny to make the women pass by at that instant, but it's sort of odd that they appear while you are building a trap you can't even complete without an element from their car.

I don't get the comment below. Sure, Earl Bobby's second adventure is a bit more on the frivolous side, but much less than any Larry Laffer game and the Earl never get's involved in any kind of sexual action. It is almost as if Earl Bobby doesn't even recognize what is all going on around him and all the implicit stuff. He's just looking for his Balls and thinking about Golf. The rest is created by the pheripherals and situations in a very innocent way.

Also the violence is much less present than in every Tom and Jerry clip, or every Stan and Olli movie...

It's a great game here, and I am looking forward to the sequel.

The first Earl Bobby game, Looking For His Shoes, was charming and I expected this game to have that same general tone. But in this one the prevailing theme was crude sex, which I didn't care for at all. Also I was surprised at the physical violence. All in all, it certainly wasn't what I expected and a don't recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first game and expects something similar in this one.

For those of you that don't like Golf or never played it, I give a hint: Just hit the Greenkeepers balls!

I never played golf in real like: i'm completely lost in this game.
I was able to collect many items, but find no use for any of them, except coins.

I didn't really like this game, because it's too difficult (and I don't like golf !). But congratulations for the graphics, animations, humour and very worked puzzles !

A really nice game.
The puzzles at the beginning are a bit wrenched and difficult. But when you get into the game it really catches you!

Great choices in music and a lot of surprises.

This is truely one of the best AGS games I have ever played. Not only because of its brilliant humour, and wonderful characters, but also from a technical point of view:

I never saw such ingenious close-up scenes like in this game. This creates a lot of atmosphere and made me somehow addicted to it. It's like playing an actor in a movie.

It took me about four days to play the game through. The puzzles aren't simple, but always logical and there are lot's of hints, if you pay attention.

The author payed attention at every single detail in the game. The way the main character fits with his colours to the backgrounds is great. Every action is animated individually in a very fluid way.

The funny cartoon like cutscenes made me chuckle lots of times. Really, I recommend this game, it's an absolute must play.

Earl Bobby is Looking for his Balls is one of the best AGs games I've played in months. I enjoyed the first Earl Bobby game so I was delighted to come across a lengthier effort. The game exceeded all my expectations.

For a start, the few things that marred the first Earl Bobby game has been sorted out. The jerky animation of the character has been totally smoothed out and there's tons more of those brilliant close-up animations thrown in. The golf course on which the game takes place is delightfully designed, with lots of uplifting bright colours. This ensures that Earl Bobby's world is a wonderful place to be immersed in.

There's loads of new characters to interact with, as well as the return of Arnold the Armour, (surely a cult character in the making) and the open conversational style makes interactions great fun. The puzzles are just about right. Provided you listen to everything that is said, the clues are all there to help you through. There's even a rudimentary arcade style driving range simulation and a big showstopping musical number thrown in.

The only thing that felt a bit odd about Earl Bobby is Looking for his Balls was the new levels of innuendo in the game. In sharp contrast with the sweet original Earl Bobby game, at times Earl Bobby is Looking for his Balls feels like a 1970s sex comedy. Still, the title should be warning enough that this is the case and the slightly more risque humour is presented so matter of factly that it retains a certain level of innocence and fits in with the games style.

Earl Bobby is a great player character and I have no doubt we will see him return in more games. The concept and the execution of the Earl Bobby games is so excellent that it is set to become a classic AGs series and surely a future award winner

I really liked this game. Le Woltaire has a good eye for animations in general, both in-game as well as during dialogs and transitions. The game has a few surprises, the art is appropriate and Earl Bobby is a charming old man. Pacing is good and although the plot is linear, the gameplay is not; i t didn't feel like the game was forcing me down a path (except at one particular point, where it's exected). The music is very fitting to the whole atmosphere.

I think the author has made great progress since my very discouraging (and a bit overreacted) first review of one of his games. I hope you enjoy it!
