Street psychics. Their blinking neon signs are everywhere, promising love and wealth and happiness. They make a fortune preying on the gullible and milking them dry. So when these victims begin dying and leaving confused spirits behind, it can only take a genuine psychic (and her wayward spirit guide) to clean up the mess.

From seedy downtown nightclubs to penthouse apartments to a luxury yacht on the Hudson River, Rosa and Joey will unearth the truth about the underground world of street psychics. Including some secrets that Joey would rather be left buried.

Blackwell Deception reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"Blackwell Deception" is a classic Retro-style Point-and-click adventure and the fourth Installment in the Blackwell series. Rosangela Blackwell, also called Rosa, is a small Local reporter at a New York Magazine. And she, like some of her Ancestors, is not always quite stable psychologically. One fine day, the Spirit Of the family Appears to her, who has already driven some of the Family mad and reveals to her That she is a medium and now has it on the heels, because it is necessary to help other Spirits who have been stuck in the Intermediate World. Not exactly rosy Prospects for Rosa. The fourth Part sets up narratively after a Narrative strand is completed in the first three Parts, fresh again. Nevertheless, it is advisable to play the Predecessors first. Just because otherwise you miss some ironic Spikes and Allusions. You have far more of the Gaming Experience if you have already loved the Characters with all their Quirks. The new Cases are exciting, quite varied and entertaining. This fourth Part is also a bit more extensive than the previous one, although it can't be a Circumference Monster even as An episode adventure. Also nice that a new Mechanic has been installed for our house and court spirit and that we can now research via the mobile Phone in the in-game network and do not have to lush to the PC every time. The Gameplay is quite typical Point-and-Click. On Screens, we inspect Items, collect them and pack them into our Inventory and talk above all else with all sorts of And impossible NPCs. At its Core, the Game works like a Detective Story. For This we have our Notebook, in which we can combine individual Hints and thus reach new Conclusions. The rather linear story unfolds in a dramaturgically sensible and skillful Way and always remains exciting through endearing or annoying Character drawings. Amazing that the Game strikes a narrow Degree between Irony and Seriousness so purposefully. With Wit and Sarcasm, very serious and bitter Topics are also dealt with, without the Game ever making a mockery of these Issues. The Graphics and Stylistics are a remotely reminiscent of old LucasArts titles. Everything is consciously pixelated, reduced and retro. This creates a nostalgic Charm that contributes a lot to The fun Of the Game, but also leads to the best way to gamble the Game in a small Window. The (English) Synchronization is mostly strong, the Characters are partly patchy and foul humor and the Speakers meet the individual Attitudes adequately. Finally, the Inclusion of the good Speakers was made reasonably professional. The thirty Ocks for a pop protector appear to have come together by selling the Predecessors. One Criticism may be the Length of the Game. In just two Hours you can be through. However, the Blackwell games were always designed as a Game Series and so the various Blackwell titles can be understood as a great episode adventure overall. Great Figures, intelligent History, lots of wit without being silly. An Unquestionably recommended little Old-school Game. Technical Tip: If you have a Blackscreen when You start, simply enter in the Start Options "--setup" and then change the Graphics Driver in the Setup. Rating: 8/10 Atmosphere 8/10 Story 7/10 Graphic 8/10 Sound 7/10 Game Mechanics 8/10 Balancing 8/10 Game Pass Conclusion: The fourth Prank pleases immediately. 8/10 Overall Rating
