Sam & Max Episode 2 Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Appletell has posted a new review of Telltale Games' Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak, the second episode in the duo's latest adventure. In The Devil's Playhouse Sam & Max 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." Appletell gave the episode a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Your goal is to get your hands on the Devilís Toy Box and comprehend some of the odd choices of some archaic language. The sad thing about this installment is that the focus on longer missions seems to have resulted in fewer jokes than in other Sam and Max titles. This is a shame, since those jokes are one of the key features in this series.

The graphics are exactly what you would expect; a bright and colorful menagerie of Nickelodion-style animation with some random violence thrown in to make it fun for us grown ups. It also has a fun vintage twist that is quite charming.

Sound in this game is really great. The music adds a real sense of period that helps to keep you interested. Gameplay is exactly what you would expect from a Sam & Max title. Nothing here is too new in that regard, which is probably a good thing considering how many other elements have been changed.
