Apple Games Features Sam & Max The Devil's Playhouse
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature article, this time focusing on Telltale Games' zany adventure game Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. In their latest adventure the duo face "a mysterious otherworldly power for controlling matter and space that calls to the strongest and strangest who might wield it - intergalactic warlords and eldritch gods, under-dwellers and scholars of the arcane." Apple's article includes an overview of the game and a history of the Sam & Max franchise.

As in Telltaleís other adventure games, such as Tales of Monkey Island, you collect items and use them to solve puzzles during the course of the story; Sam carries a large .44 revolver that sometimes serves a purpose. You can switch control between our heroes at will, which is key to overcoming many obstacles: use one of Maxís psychic powers to complete a goal, and then rely on Sam to deliver the coup de grace.

And donít forget to speak to other characters at every opportunity. Not only are the conversations amusing, but they impart plenty of vital information and make available new options in the gameplay that require you to complete certain interactions.
