The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

The Blackwell Legacy is the first case in a miniseries of games that stars a medium named Rosangela Blackwell and her spirit guide Joey Mallone. Their mission, it seems, is to assist tormented spirits and investigate supernatural goings on. They don't understand why they are thrown together, but they do the best they can.

The duo's first case will involve a series of suicides at a local university. Something unnatural has forced these students to kill themselves, and nobody knows why. Rosangela, who is just coming to terms with her new status as a medium, finds herself cast as the unwilling detective in this gruesome mystery.

Price: $14.99

I really liked gameplay mechanics and VA. Good and interesting story, it kept me on playing cause I was curious how this gonna end. There were some bugs though, which is odd so many years after the release. Overall, a very good start of the franchise. Episode 2, here I come!

I, like seemingly most of the world, adored Day of the Tentacle. However, in creating ‘The Blackwell Legacy’, Dave Gilbert has created something I thought I’d never see: a potential rival for DOTT. Absolutely loved it.

Day of the Tentacle was my favourite adventure game of all time. It has been rated as top of top 20 forums so frequently it's become almost expected. However, I think in 'The Blackwell Legacy', Dave Gilbert has created something I never thought I'd see: a potential rival for DOTT. Absolutely loved it from start to end.

My favourite adventure game ever is surely Gabriel Knight.

I haven't enjoyed an adventure game as much as I enjoyed Blackwell Legacy since Gabriel Knight.

Need I say more?
