Sam & Max: 106 - Bright Side of the Moon reviews and comments

"Sam & Max: Season One: Bright Side of the Moon" is the sixth and final episode of the saucomic episode Point-and-click adventures, whose first Season consists of six Episodes. The overturns sadistic Bunny Max and the jovial Dog Sam form a congenial Team. They are freelance police Officers, investigative Detectives and solve every Case with their Firm, however absurd or outlandish. Mechanically, we are in classic Point-and-Click. We (almost) always control Sam, click on Things that all trigger a Comment, stuff some of them into our Inventory, use them with other Things or other Protagonists, and select from multiple conversational Options for the latter. As classic as the Gameplay, so twisted is the Humour. Everything is taken on the Rails here, whether Television Formats or American Presidents. The more abstruse the better. In doing so, the Series doesn't shy away from bad Puns and Calaus. But it is precisely this disrespectful approach to everything and everyone that opens up the Range from sharp Parody to Level-free flat wit. Everything else is subordinated to a good Punchline. And that's exactly what makes for the Wit and Charm of "Sam & Max." In this Episode "Bright Side of the Moon," we really make our Way to the Moon. Here, all the Narrative Strands of the previous Episodes are brought together in a grand Finale. Stupid only that one notices exactly how constructed asserts and tries to make a Reality this Merging. As funny individual Aspects may be as arbitrary as the Combination. Especially in the first Half the Episode fetched quite a bit, the second Half at least save some successful Individual Gags. While the Basic Humour of Sam & Max can be glorious, this Episode is one of the weakest. After all, you're at least part of the Episode in an unused setting. As usual, this Episode is not primarily about the Puzzles, but about the anarchist-ironic Humour that always isolates Elements of the Real And parodies them through Overdrawing. The Puzzle Structure is also often similar. In Terms Of content, there are the wildest and most surprising Ideas, but structurally many Puzzles run according to the Motto: Do three or four Tasks and then come back, off. In any Case, you should play the English-language Version if you don't want to miss Gags. The German Synchro makes an effort, but often-due to numerous Puns that can hardly be translated-has no Chance. The Playing Time of the individual Episodes is neat, because you are busy with each of the six Episodes about two Hours. (On Steam, however, you can only buy the whole Season 1 consisting of 6 Episodes anyway).
