About the Bad Luck Whammy...

Why do Sameth and Maximus even need the Bad Luck Whammy? It doesn't seem to serve any purpose for the puzzles. I have already completed all four reels of Tomb of Sammun-Mak, and if I need it to slice the statue head in half, then couldn't that just as easily have been done by throwing the statue through the "Wrong Door," without the curse. Then again, I already had the curse on me before I threw the statue, so if I really needed the curse, than I didn't realize.

In short, why do I need the Bad Luck Whammy to complete the game?

    Because the "Doorways of Life and Death" are rigged, no matter what door you choose, you'll always die. Benny's mechanical mind is not very bright, so the blades won't go down.

    Now, the Bad Luck Whammy just gives you, bad luck. Walking through the doorways and being unharmed is considered good luck in a way, so if you were to walk through the door with a curse that makes you very unlucky... Kind of obvious after that, eh?

  • No matter which door you choose, it's the "right" (as in, the one where the blade won't slash) unless you've got the bad curse one.
    And the blade does go down, splash. It just goes down in the other doorway 100% of the time. You're just that lucky.

  • the head miss the blades

    That makes sense. Thank you.
