Game Description

Looney Sam & Max are back with 6 awesome adventures!

One's a six-foot tall canine shamus with a love of justice. The other's a hyperkinetic rabbity-thing with a taste for violence and an over sized Luger. Together, Sam & Max are the Freelance Police, ridding the streets of bottom-feeding sludge one dastardly miscreant at a time.

Sam & Max games are easy to use point and click adventure games similar to Myst or the old LucasArts classics like Secret of Monkey Island or Maniac Mansion.  You must find and collect objects and use them on the environment to solve puzzles and advance the story.


You may have played adventure games before, but maybe not with this same kind of humor!  You have to play it to experience just what kind of whacky stuff comes out of these guys' mouths.

Sam & Max Season One Review

Review by Sara

Sam and Max are a dynamic, oddly matched duo who combine their respective love of justice and violence to solve cases in the underbelly of their town. A point-and-click adventure game with elements of an RPG seen in the dialogue options, it is easy to maneuver through various locations in the town and pick up items needed to solve some peculiar cases.

Great Sense of Humor

Perhaps the most exciting feature of this game is it's comical and witty dialogue that is greatly appreciated by a mature audience. Violently rear-ending motorists to bring your speeding police car to a halt, shooting out taillights to impose outrageous fines to pay for tear gas is just one of many over-the-top plots you will find in this game and parents should be advised of such elements.


6 Dialogue Heavy Episodes

That said, the scenarios in which you find yourselves are hilarious and fun to watch, and with six episodes in this season, expect hours of entertainment. To the player seeking an adventure game, the greatest drawback will be that too much of the game is reliant on dialogue options with very little inventory object collecting to solve crimes.

Conclusion - Funny But Perhaps Too Simple For Advanced Gamers

Overall, Sam & Max is an amusing game that offers witty dialogue and an easy to learn format, but is perhaps too simple for some players and contains content that might not be suitable for all age groups. This game is recommended to players who enjoy adventure elements and are of an appropriate age.
