  • Summary: An excellent successor to Blackwell Legacy. You really do need to play the first game to follow along here, so anyone considering giving it a go, definitely pick up Legacy first. Unbound was developed on a smaller budget than Legacy, and some of those lower budget aspects do poke through the edges, mainly in the graphics department character portraits are absent, the character sprites are of uneven quality, and a few backgrounds seem underdetailed.

  • Summary: After the first chapter being a little "so and so" due to a pretty annoying character, the second game changes character and set up: we're in the past this time and our main character is the aunt of Rosangela, Lauren, which is a very different character and definitely less annoying than Rosangela, although can be a little uninteresting sometimes.

  • Summary: This is a great adventure game. Beware, play all of te series or you will loose much of the story and fund. Fair puzzles, excellent story, and, ih, the music and ambient on this one is amazingly good. I enjoyed this one more than the first one. The story is sad, but hey, it's a game about life and death. If you are curious enough, you will find that the back-story of one of the NPC, it's actually based on a real reporter. If you can buy the pack, do it.

  • Summary: This is an excellent game. I totally loved it. It was the second game i played in the blackwell series (I got the bundle and played them all). Totally worth it. Great atmosphere and music. Perfectly captures the 40's(?).. Also I really loved the main character's artwork and animations. Story was short and sweet and tied in very well with the first game.

  • Summary: I had a blast playing this prequel to The Blackwell Legacy, particularly because I’d played The Blackwell Convergence (#3 in trilogy) and The Blackwell Deception (newest adventure) first. In terms of the graphics and controls, the experience for me was a study in seeing how far game development and design have come.

  • Summary: Set as a prequel to the introductory last game in the series, 'Blackwell Unbound' takes place in the 1970s and it follows a completely different (in more ways than one) protagonist who is the aunt of the original heroine. In many ways it is a lot like Its predecessor, but I felt it lacked the heart and soul of 'The Blackwell Legacy' and occasionally it had a somewhat depressing tone overshadowing it.

  • Summary: I don't know if I'm a rarity in saying this, but "Unbound" is my favorite of the Blackwell series. I really enjoyed ditching the nasal, awkward Rosangela and working with her far more likeable aunt. Lauren Blackwell is unabashedly sardonic, offering a nice change. This for me was a major selling point.

  • Summary: I have to give 5 star for this game, I love it! It is truly amazing to be able to create that atmosphere with such simple graphics and game play. The music is great, the story is great. Yes it is short but I'm happy to have it in my collection. Well done Dave!

  • Summary: I really enjoyed the Blackwell games - Unbound being my favorite of the series! Although the graphics are definitely "old school", they make the game very campy! The story and game play are great and I look forward to another installment someday!
