    			     INTRODUCTION			(INT)
    ============================================================================
    
    Sam&Max : Hit the Road was a great adventure game issued in the early '90s, 
    where the player guided Max in an adventure which would lead them to save 
    the american population of Big-Footsand to destroy half of the country. If 
    i'm not mistaking it should be an abandonware by now, so get your chances 
    to play it.
    
    Unfortunately no sequels of the game were made, until Lucasarts said it was 
    working on Sam&Max : Freelance Police, a project that was abandoned without 
    any good reason. Telltale acquired the rights and, together with Steve Purcell, 
    the creator of Sam&Max, decided to be a lead in the path of episodic 
    videogames. Through Gametap or their website people can bay Culture shock or 
    the whole first season, made of 6 episodes with an underground plot which will 
    be published from December 2006 to June 2007, one every month.
    
    As it is a spoiler-free walkthrough I will not tell you what the story is 
    about.But I'll give you an advice : the game is Short, so take advantage of 
    it by clicking on EVERY SINGLE OBJECT you can interact with. If this game 
    is fun,why should someone spoil it by hurrying to the end ?
    
    ===============================================================================
    			CONTROLS AND INTERFACE			(CTRL)
    ===============================================================================
    
    As much as the game can be fun, it is unfortunately too easy. The inventory is 
    in the lower-left corner, symbolysed by a box. Click on the box to display it. 
    Click on an object to select it and click on a hotspot to use the object with 
    that hotspot (if possible, of course). Do not try to combine the objects : you 
    simply can't. On the upper-left corner is the menu (a small wheel). Click on 
    the wheel to display it.
    
    In the car section you'll have to the left a GUN, a MEGAPHONE and a HORN. Using 
    the gun will slow you down and you won't be able to steer, so choose the 
    appropriate time. the MEGAPHONE is theway you stop the other cars. I couldn't 
    find a practical use for the HORN. I mean, it's just a horn...
