Development of computer game for teaching and learning become popular nowadays. In order to develop a game that able to contribute to the teaching and learning process and at the same time, fun to be played by the users, a comprehensive evaluation technique is needed. Experts' involvement in the evaluation process able to help developers detect usability problem before the game can be used by users. Gathering experts to conduct an evaluation process is not an easy task. This is because experts have their own commitments. To overcome this problem, a tool known as AHP_HeGES was developed to assist in evaluation process. This tool is an online system that can be used by experts to conduct the evaluation process. Evaluation technique used are based on heuristic evaluation, known as Playability Heuristic Evaluation for Educational Computer Game (PHEG) that consists of five heuristics; interface, educational element, content, playability, and multimedia. This research is important to facilitate game developers in identifying elements that need to be improved before the final version is ready to be released.
