Wrote Ghost King. I may have solved one or two games without hints. Undistinguished poster to RGIF in the 1990s.
I think my rating scale is:
1 - I do not think it worth one's time
2 - Worth some time, with caveats (like "take a peek but don't feel obligated to complete")
3 - A good game, worthy of significant amounts of one's time
4 - A standout game and/or one of great import
5 - One of the best things ever.
