    | Introduction to this FAQ and the game                                | IDX01 |
    +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    Sam & Max Hit the Road is one of the good old adventure games of long lost times
    If you wonder how to get this game, I cannot help you, I still got my copy from
    times this was still in store. I'm sure there are sites you can download it
    from, but since I cannot support software piracy, I cannot give you links.
    If you can give me sites on which this game can be bought/downloaded from
    WITHOUT VIOLATING COPYRIGHTS mail me, and I'll add those to this FAQ.
    
    Also note that since this game is old you may NOT be able to play it on modern
    machines. You may need an emulator to play it.
    One of the best out there is DOSBox.
    Download it from: http://www.dosbox.com
    
    I recomment only to use this FAQ when you are stuck, or else this game will be
    no challenge at all. If you are stuck look at the index on what you are doing
    and look at the IDX code. Open a search window (Ctrl-F in Windows and Linux and
    Apple-F in MacOS).
    
    Well, that's all folks...
    Let's get started on this
    
    +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    | HQ                                                                   | IDX02 |
    +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    In the game you control Sam, however you can use Max by either grabbing him
    and point a target with him, or by selecting him from the inventory.
    
    - First check the mousehole to get yourself some cash
    - Take the blacklight from the closet
    
    Some optional stuff is to use the dart-board or to feed Max' ant farm.
    - When you're done here, leave the building and go outside
    
    - Use Max on the cat
    
    If you want a quick laugh, go into the store at the corner of the street.
    
    - Enter you car and be ready to get on the road.
    
    
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | Snuckey's                                                            | IDX03 |
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    You can buy some silly things at the Snuckey stores, like a car bomb game,
    dress up dolls and shit like that. It's all optional, but it is kinda funny
    to collect.
    
    One of the shops has a cup lying. Pick it up.
    You can also get a box of pecan-candies. Take that too.
    
    When Max complaints he wants to go the bathroom talk to the attendant and
    ask him if Max may go to the bathroom. He'll allow you to and give Max the
    key. Now go out quickly and speak to Max before he returns the key. Get him
    to keep the key. That makes you ready for this part.
    
    
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | The Carnival                                                         | IDX04 |

    - Pick up the bucket of golf balls
    - Place the bucket with fish
    - Now pick up the club
    
    Now you can use the flag to aim. Now the alligators will change position
    when you put a fish in their neibourghood. Try to move them that wat that
    a bridge is formed.
    Don't worry about running out of fish, your supply is unlimmited, and Max
    will tell you when the bridge is good.

    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    - Enter the vortex
    
    You may see a lot of doors here. Shuv-Oohl is behind one of them, which one
    it is, is diffrent each game. You are either too small or too big to enter those
    doors. If you enter by the mirror you can set the colors of the magnets to
    either red, yellow and blue, or combine them to get white, purple, orange and
    green. Try to set them to the door color you like to try. If it's the wrong door
    try it again, until you found the right door.
    
    - When you found Shuv-Oohl ask him about Bruno

    | Frog Rock                                                            | IDX09 |

    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | Bumpusville                                                          | IDX0A |
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    - Enter the mansion
    - Take the left way and go to the back to see a show of Conroy Bumpus
    
    You cannot do anything for Bruno and Trixie yet. If you try you'll set off
    an alarm which will get you kicked out.
    
    - Find the bed room (right of the entrance)
    - Get on the bed and pick up the pillow
    - Use the claw on the retriever to get a book from the shelf
      (It's the users manual of the cleaning robot)

    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | Dino Bungee                                                          | IDX0C |
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    - Go to the Dino and Mammoth robots
    - Use Max to get the hair from the Mammoth
    - Put the string
    - Use the speaker to get the mouth of the T-Rex open
    - Put the string on it
    - Attack Max to the string. This will get you tooth.
    
    - Go to the back
    - Enter the bunge site
    - Get behind the screen to get in Bungee Equipment
    - Put the cup on the retriever with claw
    - Start bungee jumping and use the retriever with cup to scoop up some tar.
    - Now use the screen to get back to your normal self
    
    Now let's get outta here
    
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | Vegitable Museum                                                     | IDX0D |
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    - Give the picture of John Muir to the lady
    - Now leave, go wherever you want and come back here and ask the lady about
      the John Muir vegitable
    - Look the giant crate to pick up a Bumpus vegitable out of it.
    
    - Go to Bumpusville
    - Swap the Bumpus veggie with the wig (you'll be kicked out, but you got the
      wig now).
    
    - Now to go to the party again.
    
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | Bigfoot party (part 2)                                               | IDX0E |
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    - Put the tar on the costume
    - Put the hair on the costume
    - Put the wig on the costume
    - Enter the building
    - Put on the costume.
    - Enter the party
    
    - After the speech, pick up the wine bottle from the table
    - Go into the back (if there's a large fridge you're in the right room).
    - Pick up the screwdriver
    - Open the fridge
    - Open the back door to meet Bumpus and bodyguard
    - Talk to Bumpus
    - Tell him you're not a bigfoot (he won't buy it)
    - Take off the costume
    - When Bumpus uses the fridge to disguise himself use Max to lock them in
      The bigfoot chief will lead you to the four totems and explain the situation
      the bigfoots are in. After that we gotta solve the totem riddle
    
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    | The four totem poles                                                 | IDX0F |
    +----------------------------------------------------------------------+-------+
    The four totem poles all need an item in order to be activated.
    We got already three of those items. (At least when you followed my FAQ).
    One is still missing.
    
    For that one do the next things
    - Have the telekenetic at the ball of twine to bend your screwdriver
    - Use it to remove the cork from the screwdriver
    
    - Go to the upside down room in the mystery vortex
    - Step in the mini-vortex
    - While you are on the ride, use the snowglobe to catch some of the vortex'
      power and use the cork to lock it in.
    
    Now we got all we need. Go back to the party site to the yard with the
    four totems. From there is a way (extremely hard to spot) to a small pool
    where the bigfoot chief is waiting for you.
    
    Give him the next items to activate the totems:
    
    TOTEM #1: The snowglobe with mystery vortex power
    TOTEM #2: The tooth of the T-Rex from the bungee site
    TOTEM #3: The John Muir vegitable
    TOTEM #4: Conroy Bumpus' pillow
    
    Doing that will end this game.
    
    CONGRATULATIONS! YOU COMPLETED SAM & MAX HIT THE ROAD!
    
    
    While the credits are running you can shoot serveral things. Not that it
    matters, but it is kinda fun, I suppose.

    a complete workout of that part, that I will copy into this FAQ (I may alter
    your lay-out to make it fit with the rest) and even credit you for your
    trouble. This also goes for alternate boss techniques.
    
    AND NEVER FORGET TO TELL ME WHICH FAQ OF MINE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT!
    I get a lot of mails in which I must guess which FAQ it is we're talking
    about, and since I'm very busy as a contributor for GameFAQs, and ocasionally
    other sites, I have quite a lot of FAQs here. So it will help me a lot when
    I know which FAQ/Game it is you're talking about. :)
    
    And one last thing. Below are remarks I got a lot about my FAQs. Some are
    funny, and some are just plainly too stupid for words. I don't want to be
    an arrogant bastard or anything, but some of them tire me a lot.
    
    So here are those mails with my standard replies:
    
      M: Fix your English
      A: Some people say they hardly hear the diffrence between me and an
         English speaking fellow. Others say it sucks. Well, I honestly don't
         care in which category you are. English is NOT my first language. If
         I spoke my own language you probably couldn't read my FAQs at all.
    
      M: HEY IDIOT! FIX YOUR FAQ!
      A: Anyone who sends mail like this won't receive a reply. In fact they
         will be banned from ever mailing me again. I can understand you do not
         agree with my technique. There are as many as there are people. I can
         also agree you detected that I made a mistake. Well, I'm human you know.
         Making mistakes is part of my nature, as much as it's yours. If you
         detect errors in my FAQ you can tell me about it in a civil way, and
         I'll fix it if I agree with you.
    
      M: Are you a man? A woman? How old are you? Where do you live?
      A: I really got that kind of mails a lot. I don't mind that you know.
         I was quite amused by such mails actually.
         Well, my name is Jeroen Broks. I'm not going to give my private adres
         in this FAQ or anywhere else on the internet, but you may know that
         I live in the Netherlands, I am a man, and I was born in 1975. So on
         the moment I started on this version of this FAQ I was 31 years old.
    
      M: Fsdasdadasf afsdfasd afdfsaf
      A: Whatever you say I don't understand it. If you mail me, please only do
         so in either English or Dutch or if you really need in German.
         (Be perpared that if you speak German to me, you might get an answer in
         English, tough).
         I don't speak any other language.
    
      M: May I translate your FAQ into another language?
      A: If you ask my permission, mostly no problem
    
      M: Why is Neoseeker banned from hosting your FAQs?
      A: That's something between me and Neoseeker. I don't find it necesary to
         go into detail about that. I noted it in my FAQs to make sure they
         will never pop up there unnoticed. So don't mail me about it
         cause I won't answer. I got very good reasons for it. That's all you
         need to know.
    
    And so far this FAQ. I hope you have good use for it!
