Telltale's Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone slashed to 59p/99c on iPad

Cheap as chimps

Product: Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone | Developer: Telltale Games | Genre: Adventure
For: iPad

Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone took us all by surprise when it hit the App Store just as the original iPad was hitting shelves. Telltale had managed to keep its classic point-and-click refresh a secret.

Unfortunately, it was buggy. Telltale's iOS conversions have all suffered performance issues to some extent, but Sam & Max is probably the worst offender. The App Store description even advises players to turn off background apps and resets their devices.

The game, which is the first part of a five-part series, pits the eponymous duo against, “intergalactic gorilla invader Skunk'ape”, who's after Max the rabbit's mysterious powers.

These powers include future sight, teleportation, shape shifting, mind reading, all of which you use to solve puzzles in classic LucasArts point-and-click style.

Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone is available now for 59p/99c 'for a limited time'.
