Description

Moai Better Blues is the second episode of the second season in the Sam & Max episodic series. After successfully saving Christmas in Ice Station Santa the duo now needs to stop a volcano on the Easter Island from erupting in order to save not only the (talking) Stone Heads but also to prevent the destruction of civilization as we know it.

The gameplay is identical to the previous games in the series. The game is entirely in 3D and the player controls Sam. Sam can interact with the environment through mouse-based actions. He can talk to other characters, examine the environment, pick up items and use them with other objects in order to solve all the puzzles thrown at him. The inventory is shown as a cardboard box at the bottom of the screen. In addition to new characters and locations, there are also a few new mini-games like the Wipeout!-Surf-Challenge as well as old one like the driving sequence.
