About the Game

When Rosa Blackwell's only relative dies after twenty years in a coma, she thinks the worst is over.  This all changes when Joey Mallone, a sardonic ghost from the 1930s, blows into her life and tells her that she is a medium.  Whether they like it or not, it is up to them to cure the supernatural ills of New York in this critically-acclaimed series of point-and-click adventure games.
When three NYU students kill themselves one after the other, nobody thinks that a sinister force is at work.  Nobody but fledgling medium Rosa Blackwell and her new spirit guide Joey Mallone.  It's trial by fire as they set these troubled spirits to rest.

“Evil doers beware! I’m Joey Mallone and I command the power of light breezes!”

The Blackwell Legacy represents the first of five parts in the Blackwell series. It is a solid point & click adventure game with an interesting female protagonist and a promising storyline. While most of the puzzles are easy to solve, some of them do not work out as intended, resulting in a break in immersion (e.g. the dog in the park).

Fun fact: Game developers always hire their family and friends to do the voice acting.

The Blackwell Legacy is a short and sweet point-and-click adventure game wherein you help wandering spirits pass on to the afterlife by helping them realise their current situation. It features puzzles that require decent comprehension, a good amount of research, and involvement with all participating characters. After playing it for 2 hours, here's what I think..

Pros:

- sensible achievement design (There's an achievement for not talking to your Spirit Guide while in the presence of others. This makes complete sense since the main character has insecurities about being viewed as insane.)
- the game makes good use of notes; they really look for the ability to put two and two together
- short and sweet (Only one case is covered but it is quote memorable due to the nature of all the different characters the developer managed to fit in.)

Con:

- quite a few parts of the game did not require much (if any) object interaction

___________

I recommend this game to anyone who is looking to start playing point-and-click adventure games. It's a great starting point. It's well-made and short (not tedious) so it will ease you into the genre. The story itself is solid if you understand that this game is an introduction to the series (The Blackwell Series of games).

Just one heck of a solid old school adventure game. Great start to the series and I'm glad I got around to actually playing it.

I'll keep this short. Dave Gilbert is basically the guy who got me interested in point & click games again. The game just got a new patch with additional commentary etc as well, so.. Personal recommendation coming here: Get this first game & then, when you realize how good it is.. buy the rest of them.

Such a well done point-and-click adventure for so little money. I just feel it should be more popular. It's a nice start to a series I'm eager to know more about.
