March Issue


This months Monthly AGS Competition topic

Three's a crowd

Guidelines were set by: Slasher


Rules:

In this game you will need three characters (as in three's a crowd). Each character may have his/her own agenda or they may all have the same agenda...Either way ONLY ONE character can be chosen for the game.Think Maniac Mansion.

You could make a game where you just change the character view... but NO NO NO... The games must all be slightly different ie some text changes at the very least to differnciate between the characters. You may even choose to make three different games, one for each character chosen...

Whatever you decide to create have fun and I wish you all the best of luck.

Number Rescue
by CaptainD

TRIGO-WARNING!! This game contains maths.

This charming little number was made by CaptainD as an educational maths game aimed at kids. While the screenshot tells you everything you need to know about the graphics, I know my 5-year-old self would have loved a game like this, so I guess it's done its job in the fun department. The game follows agent Tan trying to track down the evil twins Sin and Cos who have kidnapped a bunch of numbers, presumably for multiplication purposes. He goes off on a tangent in order to rescue the numbers and to help him you must solve a number of maths-based problems. I actually got one wrong and am now considering reapplying for primary school.
No Monkey's Banana
by Retro Wolf

No Monkey's Banana was made for MAGS August 2016 where the guidelines called for three things: monkeys, bananas and a poor means of transport.

It's not a game so much as a randomly generated mini story. Every time you click, a new story is generated. Each following the exploits of a randomly generated monkey, trying to reach a randonly generated destination, who builds a randomly generated mode of transport made from a banana of randomly generated material. Hilarity doesn't necessarily ensue but if you want to see those randomly generated moral endings, there are worse ways to spend a few minutes.
That's all for today. I really want to abolish that list of games no one has rated but I can't do it myself. I'll be back next month with some reviews of games beginning with O, but until then, I need your help getting rid of these Ns:
