By Wadjet Eye Games LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The first game in Wadjet Eye's Blackwell mystery adventure series.
Rosa Blackwell's humdrum life is turned upside-down when she discovers she is a medium with the power to talk to the dead.
With the aid of the wise-cracking Joey Mallone, the family spirit guide, she sets out on a quest to lay to rest the ghosts of New York City.
But is Joey as well-intentioned as he claims? And why is her family bonded to him, generation after generation?
"The Blackwell Legacy" is the first in the critically acclaimed Blackwell series. It is followed by "Blackwell 2: Unbound" (available now!), "Blackwell 3: Convergence" (available now!), "Blackwell 4: Deception" (coming soon) and "Blackwell 5: Epiphany" (coming soon)
Just Adventure - "It leaves most independently developed games for dead." - A-/B+
Strategy Informer - "If this were a TV show, one watch of this and any TV network would commission a full series."
Adventure Gamers - "By the end of the game, [Rosangela Blackwell] is a main character you want to spend more time with." 4.5/5
Gameboomers - "An unusually compelling psychological study for an independent game to undertake."
Gamezebo - "A thought-provoking and detailed plot."

I have loved the game so far, however I have encountered a bug that keeps me from progressing. In Kelly's dorm room, I have tried using the phone and inquiring about a distraction. Nothing happened and now when I try to use the phone again it just cycles between the beginning and end of the phone conversation, no options are presented. I would greatly appreciate some help or an update so I can get the notebook and move on.
In reply to Alysstar132’s problem: at first I thought that was a bug, but it actually is not.
What you need to do is go to Rosa’s apartment, talk to Joey, and select ‘ghostly powers.’
Joey will blow on the curtains to show his one ghostly power. Then return to Kelly’s room and use the phone. Click on Joey while Rosa is using the phone. You will be able to progress from there.
I'm a fan of old school point-and-click games and this series definitely reminds me of some of my favorites. I hope the 4th & 5th game will be available soon!!!
