Blackwell Deception by flotsam

23 October 2011
  • Excerpt: This is the fourth in the franchise of Blackwell games, and in my opinion probably the best. It's longer, and I like where the characters are at. Plus there are more ghosts!

Blackwell Deception

  • 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 games were being released. The low-rez look matches perfectly to those games, and anyone wanting a new experience with that old-school feel will easily find it here.

  • Conclusion: With a little more challenge and visual polish, this could have been a truly great adventure, but instead settles for being another solid supernatural mystery.

TEST. Blackwell Deception

Game Blog
18 October 2011
  • Summary: Blackwell Deception intéressera les amateurs de point'n click : énigmes solides sans être frustrantes, très bon duo de personnages et chouette histoire. Si vous ne connaissiez pas, songez à découvrir l'univers de la série par le début. Seul regret : il manque une bonne direction artistique pour lui donner un vrai cachet.
  • Pros: Le thème fantastique, Le duo de personnages, Bien dans l'ensemble
  • Cons: Manque une touche de génie, Direction artistique très plate

  • Summary: The Blackwell Deception er rett og slett et knallspill. Det leverer en herlig kombinasjon av underholdende, troverdige og tilfredsstillende gåter og et mysterium som bare blir mer og mer spennende jo mer du graver i det. I tillegg er Rosa og Joeys New York befolket av et figurgalleri som er langt mer interessant enn det vi vanligvis får i spill, og selv om spillet er befolket av tragedier er det alltid lys i enden av tunnelen – bokstavlig talt.
