Things to Do At, Beyond and Below the Straight & Narrow: Penal Zone Did You Try List

Well, this was done for every chapter of ToMI, so why not Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. I'm sure most of you have completed The Penal Zone, but there is probably much more in the game that you missed - more jokes, more lines of dialogue, more character actions and reactions that you failed to uncover throughout your first playthrough. However, we all have different minds and play the games differently to each other, so there's bound to be people out there who tried random combinations and wacky experiments and managed to find the things that you missed. Here are mine:

-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s standing, watching out of the front window of the ship
-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe when he’s getting sucked into the Penal Zone
-Read Sam’s thoughts twice
-Read Skun-ka’pe’s thoughts when he’s getting sucked into the Penal Zone
-Read the alien brain’s mind
-Use future vision on all possible options
-Look at textbooks twice
-Attempt to shoot Stinky
-Attempt to give the demon broth to Skun-ka’pe
-Use jumper cables with gaping hole
-Contemplate Puddin’head Lincoln twice
-Look at moleman construction worker twice
-Giving Momma Bosco back her power core
-Talk to Max while inside the moleman processing chamber
-Use your gun with the gorilla research assistant guarding the entrance to Bosco-Tech
-Use engagement ring with gorilla research assistant guarding the entrance to -Bosco-Tech
-Look at used pizza boxes twice
-Use cell phone with pigeon sitting on trash cans
-Use your gun with the research assistant gorilla guarding the pawshop
-Use the banana peel directly with the research assistant gorilla guarding the pawshop
-Use the banana peel with Max
-Use the banana peel with the manhole (not the manhole cover)
-Use the banana peel with the pizza boxes
-Try to enter the pawnshop a second time
-Talk to Sam while in the Penal Zone
-Attempt to use the Desoto after you escape the Penal Zone
-Use rift generator with Momma Bosco’s power supply
-Attempt to turn on rift generator before putting the homing device on Skun-ka’pe
-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s standing, watching out of the front window of the ship... again
-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s getting sucked into the Penal Zone... again
-Speak to Skun-ka’pe twice during the final scene
-Show Skun-ka’pe the paddle toy twice before turning up the heat on the boiler

There are probably much better ones out there than these, so if you found anything interesting, any bonuses throughout the episode, post them here so that we can all try them out on our next playthrough!

  • Mmmm... then no... I'll stall watching to the exit for a while
  • Considering how Max vision works, you probably have to go in and out of it several times, and also wait for a little bit each time. Why do I think it works that way? Because when you look at Sam several times in the same area, sometimes he has a duck water float, and other times he has a frying pan under him. Max vision changes each time you look through his eyes.
  • yeah, I wanna know too
  • No-one?

    Seeing the missing pharaoh issue in 303 I suspect he might not appear at all due to:
    I think the missing pharaoh issue might be the game forcing to remove Max when turning into Max mode (because it would look odd to see Max running around during those), and since the Pharaoh IS Max' model it's probably internally flagged as such, and thus removed when switching to Max mode.

    (On that account, did anyone EVER see Maximus in 301 in Max modus? We got hints where to find him, but so far no one has been able to see him IIRC. It might be the same issue preventing Maximus to appear there even with TTG intending to do so?)
    Any confirmation/denying TTG? And if it's impossible to see Max/Maximus/Sammun-Mak in Max mode could this be fixed for the DVD?
  • Eh, I was wrong when I said I saw Maximus. It was a freakin' white pot n' pan... Me myself, I waited 10 minutes to see Maximus and saw nothing. So either it was a lie or you have to wait 20 or an hour for him.
  • Yeah, or him showing up bugs out.

    Or 4) Jake just lied to us. :(

    Saying things like that could get you banned in this town. Have a puzzle to forget about the whole thing :cool:
  • Meh, already finished it.
    And it's not like PA is a game that can really be replayed like the S&M episodes :( (for me at least)
  • I know I'm rather late to the game, but when you teleport yourself to Girl Stinky's cellphone the first time and end up on that random streetcorner, look in through the window. Also, when you are by Bosco Labs, click on the lamppost for a Simon and Garfunkel reference.
