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?

Was anticipating better
Bought the bundle after seeing rave reviews. Not impressed by gameplay. Finished each in about 2-3 hours and the both felt like hours of clicking around with little sense of purpose or excitement. The game almost feels like a job you don't get paid for and the characters are gruff and unlikeable. Many things don't seem very intuitive, I find myself just mindlessly combining notes and clues after each point of progress until I unlock the next point of progress. Feel like I have to slog through the remaining games in the bundle just to get my money's worth. Can't wait to get it over with and free the memory back up on my device for something else.
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.
Super weird, in a good way
It took me probably longer then it should have to get the flow of this game. Having said that, I really enjoyed it. The graphics, I know are supposed to be a nod to games past. I didn't love that, but it didn't keep me from enjoying the hell out of it. I would LOVE to be able to turn the music down and/or off.
