Blackstar is a detective mystery point-and-click adventure game that is very reminiscent of the 80s and early 90s vigilante movies. The eponymous Blackstar is such a character who, disillusioned in the decaying state of the society, does volunteer detective work according to his own moral code.
The game starts with Blackstar in his own apartment receiving an urgent message from his friend in the police. The player uses the mouse to interact with objects and other characters. Hovering the mouse over Blackstar’s portrait will reveal his thoughts about the current situation.
There are two episodes in the game, with the first one (shareware) stated by the author to be rated PG-13 but still contains violence, adult themes, and adult humour.
