Sam & Max Episode 103: The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball Review

By Alan Cranford |

Sam & Max's episodic adventures continue with Episode 3: The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball. Like the previous two Telltale-developed adventure games, this one is self-contained but ties in to the other installments. A police mole that has been working undercover in Ted E. Bear's Mafia has gone missing, and it's up to Sam (a dog that knows how to crack wise) and Max (a rabbit-esque thing that loves violence more than you love your own mother) to infiltrate a Mafia-run casino and figure out what happened.

Sam & Max return and attempt to stop the flow of brainwashing toy bears in their third episode.

Like the other episodes, The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball is a funny game with plenty of opportunities for humor. This one relies a bit more on the humor of repetition than the previous episodes, with dialogue options that let you try different crazy passwords at a door, ask for random items to buy at the local inconvenience store, and repeatedly click on a series of singing bear heads to listen to them sing a tune about how there's most definitely no Mafia around. That repetitive streak holds throughout the game's structure, as well. Sam & Max's office and local neighborhood are largely unchanged--everything that was needed for the previous episode's puzzles has simply been replaced with the sort of things you'll need for this episode's puzzles. Aside from the local neighborhood, there are only a few other screens to see, which is sort of disappointing, because now that we're three episodes deep, some of the things established in the first installment are wearing thin.

But the puzzles are still nice. You'll cheat a poker cheat out of millions, fake someone's death, and meet up with a tough-talking bug that will crawl near people and listen in on their conversations, which also leads to some funny lines. The graphics are quality, and the voice acting and music also stand out, though some of the music and dialogue has been recycled from previous installments. Also, there's a character in this episode named Leonard Steakcharmer, which is one of the greatest fake names ever.

Now that Telltale is halfway through its "season" of Sam & Max, you've probably already made up your mind about the series. If you played the first two episodes, you should certainly keep on playing, unless the second episode rubbed you the wrong way by reusing so many locations. And if you've held off, or played the first episode and decided it wasn't for you, you could probably keep right on looking in the other direction. The episodic nature of this adventure is starting to hurt it, as each individual episode is short enough for you to finish it in an afternoon at most--and this one feels even shorter than the other two.

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Welcome to my guide to the third episode of the first season of Telltale Games'
Sam & Max series; Sam & Max: Save the World - Episode 3: The Mole, The Mob, and
the Meatball.

This guide was written using the PC version of the game downloaded from
Telltale Games, but aside from references to controls it should be identical
and applicable to all other versions of the game.

If you don't want to read through a full walkthrough just to find the one thing
you're stuck on, there is also a section called 'Just the Clicks' which
contains just the bare minimum of direction to finish the game and is broken
down into the more individual tasks.

And there's an FAQs section with answers to some of the more common roadblocks.

Once again the game beings in the office. Before heading off to Ted E. Bear's
Mafia-Free Playland and Casino pick up that Ace of Spades that Max dropped over
by the rat hole, incidentally Jimmy Two-Teeth now appears to be a Fence. Note
that down. That's all you need to do in here, go outside and jump into the
DeSoto.

Lovey Bear at the door will give you some free tokens, these are unlimited so
don't worry about using them too much. The first use for them is to play the
game of Whack da Ratz behind Lovey Bear. Simply keep shooting the orange rats
until you get to 20, don't shoot the yellow ones as they will decrease your
score. Your reward for winning is a magnet, however winning again will not
result in further prizes.

Onto the second use of the tokens. But before you do that use the Ace of Spades
on the shiny Clown Nose above the entrance. Once you've done that talk to the
green bear, Cuddly Bear, at the card table and play a game of Indian Poker
against Leonard Steakcharmer. If you've placed the card on the nose he'll bet
despite having a 4 of Hearts, so just Bet and you win 10,000,000 tokens.

That's all you need to do in the casino right now. Go to Bosco's and buy his
new gadget, a Listening Device, coincidentally for $10,000,000.

Back to the casino again and plant the bug on the blue bear guard and then a
token on the One-Armed Bandit. This will trigger a red bear to come walking out
through the door and then back in again whispering the password as he does.
Pick up the bug to learn what was said. Talk to the guard to gain entry.

Chuckles will recruit you and give you three tasks to perform. He wants you to
lean on somebody (Bosco), to whack somebody (Sybil), and to recover an item
(sandwich). You'll need to inquire about all three tasks before you can go
perform them.

First up we head off to Sybil's. She's got herself another new profession but
all you need to do is take her coffee cup and then go down to Bosco's.

Since there actually is a member of the Toy Mafia standing outside the shop you
can successfully distract Bosco with the "Look, it's the Toy Mafia!" line. Once
he gets distracted use the Magnet you won at the Casino on the Anti-Delivery
Camera to the left of the counter. This will get rid of the security system and
allow you to place the Toy Bear on the Sale Table successfully.

Before you leave, use Sybil's cup on the condiments next to the toilets.

On your way back to Sybil's pop into the office and have a chat with Leonard
who's trying to sell the sandwich to Jimmy Two-Teeth. Call him out on the cap
gun that he's holding by switching to Max's dialogue choices and you'll begin
the torture. Here are all of the starting lines and their corresponding punch
lines.

Yo' mama's so fat... She has more folds than an origami accordion!

Yo' mama's so radiant... If she fell in nuclear waste, no one would notice!

Yo' mama's so perky... The only time she's low is at a limbo contest!

Yo' mama's so thrifty... She brings coupons to the penny arcade!

Yo' mama's so vulgar... Her mouth would make a longshoreman blush!

Yo' mama's so punctual... She showed up early for her own funeral!

You'll need to successfully say five of these before Leonard will give up the
location of the sandwich, in the prize slot of the One-Armed Bandit, and give
you the arm of the One-Armed Bandit.

Time to whack Sybil. Give her the ketchup filled coffee cup and then shoot it.
That should be enough to fool Chuckles. Go back to the casino and use the arm
on the bandit and then a token on the fixed machine to win the sandwich.

 '--------'                      '----------'                       '--------'

It's time for another straight forward car sequence. This time however you're
being chased rather than doing the chasing. All you need to do is shoot one of
the big Prismatology signs above you in the middle of the road, this will knock
the Toy Mafia off the road and give you time to escape.

Enter the sinister door and meet Ted E. Bear. Faced with fake hypnosis you must
shoot Max, luckily you picked up a cap gun from Leonard earlier so shoot him
with that instead of the real thing.

Walk over to the disassembled One-Armed Bandit on the left and pick up the
Screwdriver. Use it on the bandit to prise out the voice box which you'll also
need to pick up. Take the voice box over to the orange hopper filled with the
real voice boxes for the bears. Drop the bandit's in there and then pick up the
altered bear.

Hypnotise Ted E. Bear himself with this new creation and he'll believe himself
to be on fire! As he rushes over to the extinguisher simply pull the lever to
finish the game.
