Blackwell Deception

Game Vortex
9 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Blackwell Deception is the fourth game in the series, and it's a shame I haven't been following it before now. The visual style hearks back to the 90's when titles like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis , Full Throttle , Day of the Tentacle and the original Monkey Island and Sam and Max...

  • Conclusion: Despite my earlier sneer at the game for irritating me so much at the start, I did end up being hugely impressed by The Blackwell Deception . It’s seriously one of the best adventure games I’ve played in years that has words in it (I’m looking at you, Machinarium ).

  • Summary: When Dave Gilbert founded Wadjeteye games, one of the first titles they released was The Blackwell Legacy.

GamerNode
12 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Let’s not beat around the bush; point-and-click adventure games are largely a thing of the past. Games focusing on narrative are still present, but most have evolved mechanically past simply pointing at objects with a computer mouse.
  • Pros: Delivers exactly what fans of a point-and-click adventure game expect, Unique story provides mystery and intrigue, Well-crafted dynamic between characters
  • Cons: Game mechanics don’t evolve past point-and-click, Could’ve used more complex puzzles
