Sam & Max: 103 - The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball
Sam & Max 103: The Mole, the Mob, and the Meatball is an episodic adventure by TellTale studios, and also the third episode of the first season of Sam & Max Save the World franchise which consists of 7 episodes in total.
We play as Sam — an anthropomorphic creature who looks more like a dog, than a human who is accompanied by Max — rabbit-like extraterrestrial. The gameplay is tied to the limits of every point-and-click adventure with the only difference of inability to combine the objects. Other than that player can examine things in the location, interact with them, move around the scene and chat with non-playable characters. The title features multiple locations and the protagonists can fast travel between them using 1960 DeSoto Adventurer — a special device also used as a navigator. During multiple driving and actions scenes.
Typical for TellTale, there is also a branching dialogue — the player is allowed to choose between the given options in the conversations. The following playthrough depends on the choices.
