DescriptionSam & Max 304: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls is the fourth episode of the third Sam & Max season named Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. After the happenings of the third episode a horde of clones modelled after Sam swarm the city. During the course of the episode Sam & Max have to uncover and defeat the evil mastermind behind it...
Max's psychic powers once again play an important part. Now he gets access to all powers from the previous episodes plus cards which allow Max to read a person's mind and a robot to fight creatures from the dark dimension. The rest of the gameplay is similar to the former seasons: the player walks through the levels, collects items and uses them to solve puzzles. Dialogues are a ring menu similar to Mass Effect where the player only chooses the topic instead of the whole sentence. Unlike traditional adventure games the movement of Sam is not controlled by point & click but by holding the left mouse button and dragging the mouse in the desired direction (or alternatively with the keyboard keys). Interactions with items or persons are carried out with a single mouse button.
Like the Tales of Monkey Island series, single episodes weren't available for purchase at the initial release. Users were required to buy the five episodes as a whole as they are released on a monthly basis.
