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

posted by Hayden on - last edited - Viewed by 2.7K users

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!

    Where?
    If you mean the street... do it thrice!
    (EDIT: Wait... nevermind... I meant use future vision thrice on Sam and the street!)
    -Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s standing, watching out of the front window of the ship... again
    Pretty sure that's a bug (I reported it as bug at least).
    I guess the other teleport locations in this situation might also prove interesting.
    Sadly enough, all of them end the same way, I tried :(.

    And yes, Max+engagement ring is the best... some more:
    * Knock Max in the air while in the Penal Zone?
    * Look around everywhere in Max vision to notice all the strange things going on, like the chicken in the Desote, or the flashing "Obey! Obey! Obey!"
    * Use the iThing G4 several times, and looking at the item description?
    * Use future vision on Sam in the spaceship after enabling the brain's power?
    * Use future vision on the train-arrival-sign in the sewers?
    * Call Stinky's mobile after attaining it?
    * Try to leave the ship instead of teleporting out after attaining the Teleportation power?

  • This thread really ought to be stickied.

  • Yeah, using the ring with Max needs a special mention. I done it at 3 in the morning and was shaking away in my chair trying to keep my laughing quiet in case I woke everyone up

  • - Teleport to the desoto twice, while Max is being strangled

  • @Hassat Hunter said: * Try to leave the ship instead of teleporting out after attaining the Teleportation power?

    You got the same thing when you try to enter into the Moleman prosessing room before get the teleportation.

    I tried to teleport with Grampa Stinky to different places, but proves to be boring _ _!

    I'm not good at this things...

    I wonder if this was a They Live reference.

  • Here's one:

    -Wait to pick up the ring until Max is with you

  • [quote=caeska;289279]i noticed nobody said - use engagement ring with max; i laughed tears when i did that, it's absolutely hilarious! Only seems to work in the street outside momma bosco's lab though.
