Sam & Max 302: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak
Sam & Max 302: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is the second episode of Sam & Max Season 3 and it is said to be one of the best entries in the series. It differs from other games in its random way of storytelling and weird craziness of two characters of Sam & Max.
The game tells a story about the adventures of the grandfathers of Sam and Max, Sammus and Maximus. While playing the game we get to know how they explored the tomb of Semmun-Man, a pharaoh. The game story is told through flashbacks that are presented in sets of film reels which are small chapters with their own stages and objectives that Sam and Max have to complete and puzzles to solve. There is also a comeback mechanic of the game, where characters obtain some powers which let them go back in previous levels to solve previously impossible tasks. The story of the game is told in a non-linear manner.
In this episode of Sam & Max, lots of well-known characters from Season 2 appears but now they all are younger yet they are done very interesting. Despite the fact, that the game has lots of humor and light adventure elements it’s still dark and very serious drama tale.
