A charmingly low-res point-and-click adventure by the team behind rabbi detective story The Shivah. You’re a neurotic New York book reviewer - until you start seeing a friendly ghost named Joey.
Sample puzzle: a security guard is bothered by a flickering light. LOOK AT: Fuse Box. “Judging by the way the lights are flickering, it must be broken.” USE: Fuse Box. “I need a key.” LOOK AT: keys. “One of them is labelled ‘FB’ - I guess that stands for Fuse Box.” TAKE: keys. “I don’t need any of these.” USE: fist ON: keyboard.
The real solution is to walk around a lamppost to confuse a dog, but lovingly-drawn New York backdrops go some way towards rescuing the painful puzzles. The Blackwell Legacy is available here for $15.
