  | [010100]      Introduction      [010100] |

Welcome to my complete walkthrough and guide to the 2008 game Penny Arcade
Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One. This
walkthrough should be able to guide you through the entirity of the first
episode in this series. Primarily based on the PC version of the game it should
in general be applicable to the Xbox 360 Arcade version as well, aside from
mentions of controls of course.

  | [010200]      Combat      [010200] |

Combat in Episode One is a fairly straightforward process. You wait for your
attacks to become active and then you attack, at the same time blocking the
opponent's attempts at attacking you.

Certain enemies are resistant or weak to each of the three main attack types,
Garden Tools, Fists, and Firearms. You will be Garden Tools, Gabe is Fists and
Tycho is Firearms. You will need to remember which enemies are which in order
to best defeat them.

For Special Attacks you need to wait beyond the normal attack becoming active
and then perform a short time-limited task in order to attempt to get full
power out of it.

Your Special Attack requires you to press the spacebar when the arrow is over a
marker, if you manage to do all four markers you get full power and the
possibility of an overkill.

Gabe's requires you to hit the spacebar rapidly at first and then to time it so
that it hits on a marker.

Tycho's asks you to press a combination of WASD/arrow keys in a short amount of

If you have two or three of your characters with their Special Attack active
you can do team-up attacks. These combine both of the characters attacks
without the hassle of performing the task usually needed. This does come with
the side-effect of doing a bit less damage than doing them individually but it
does it all at once.

Items can be used to augment your battle. You can heal your characters and
bring them back from the dead, increase your characters stats, lower your
enemies stats or thrown an item at the enemy to hurt or distract them from
battle. When you are clicked on the item menu action pauses and neither side's
meters will increase.

Support characters can be called into battle to perform a single attack. Their
meters build up over multiple battles and take quite a while to become active.

Blocking an attack is as simple as pressing spacebar when they attack, the
trick is to get it at the exact moment of their health bar flashing. If you get
it right you can reduce your damage taken or if you get it perfect you get a
free counterattack which doesn't deplete your meter.

The more times you hit an enemy without yourself getting hit (getting a Block
or more counts as not getting hit) the strong you become. A number below your
Speed counts this (it shows from 3 upwards) and it is shown visually as a glow
on your weapons.


First off you get to create your very own Penny Arcade character. You can play
with the clothes and features and their colours until you're satisfied and are
ready to begin.

 ,--------,                 ,--------------------,                  ,--------,
| [020100] |~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~|  Desperation Street  |-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~| [020100] |
 '--------'                 '--------------------'                  '--------'

  | [020101]      Desperation Cul-De-Sac      [020101] |

After the narrator has finished introducing you to the world your first task is
to array the lawn. Pick up the green rake leaning against your house by
clicking on it (the cursor changes to a white eye on a black background when
hovering over something clickable), and then again on the pile of leaves

After this simple task is complete you will be allowed out of the cul-de-sac
and further along the street. Clicking on random things will bring up random
descriptions of said item, a few items when you click on them will reward you
with some Concept Art, the first of which is the mailbox in front of the house
to the right of yours.

Other things worth clicking on are dustbins, most of these you will be able to
hit with your rake and usually gain an item from doing so, usually bandages or
potions that will help in battle. There are also crates which serve much the
same purpose as the garbage cans. All reappear and recontain an item if you
leave the area and come back.

Move along to the right down the road and you'll meet the first pair of
enemies, they're both Fruit Fuckers (Mark I). These simple little fellows will
introduce you to the battle screen. The game will teach you how to fight in a
safe setting, if you get to 11 health or lower you will regenerate
automatically back to 20. This occurs in all of the fights in this tutorial
section of the game. To attack simply click on the rake button and the cursor
will change to the same thing. Click again on one of the Fruit Fuckers (when
hovering a green gear will appear on the ground) and you'll attack.

You then have to wait for your attack to become active again, first your
inventory turns on and then your Swat attack. The higher your speed the faster
this takes. Repeat to the same Fruit Fucker and you should manage to kill it.
Kill the second one to win the fight, gain your experience and be allowed to
move on. You'll also gain 2 Spare Parts, you get these from winning any fight
with a Fruit Fucker and can be used later on to upgrade weapons.

If you continue down the road a little more you'll meet a cat. Go through the
talking until you can purr to it and it will join you. The quickest way is to
pet the cat and then purr gently. The other options are there for comedic
effect and don't alter the outcome (you'll find this occurs with all other
conversations too). T. Kemper will help you in battles, his normal attack is
very weak and only does 1 damage to each of the enemies but very rarely he
manages to pull off his critical hit which is impressive. Mostly he just takes
up time for your attacks to become active and certainly can't be relied upon.

The mailbox in front of this house contains Album 1 and
directly over the road from you is another mailbox, click it to get Concept Art
2. Continue down the road and towards the milk bottles. Click on them and a
bunch of Fruit Fuckers will emerge. This kind of behaviour is vital to
recognise if you want to collect all of the Spare Parts, some Fruit Fuckers
will hide in things around the game that you will need to click on to release
them in order to defeat them.

Once you've used your new companion, in what was most likely a disappointing
show of strength, and defeated the three Fruit Fuckers, you'll earn another 3
Spare Parts. Continue on down the road and off onto the next panel.

  | [020102]      The Old Orange Tree      [020102] |

Stroll on further down Desperation Street and the narrator will point you in
the direction of an orange tree. Grab the orange on the ground and head back
towards the road. Continue down the road to another trio of Fruit Fuckers. Here
you get to use that fruit to great effect.

The Fruit Fuckers will be distracted from battle and go over to the orange, one
will watch the other but will eventually attack you again. Kill that one and
then target the preoccupied one, if you wait a long enough time he'll finish
with the fruit and get back into the fight. Kill that second one and you'll
gain 2 Spare Parts and reach Level 2. You've now got a new attack 'Grand Slam'
which the game will teach you how to use in a short while.

Concept Art 3 is just ahead, it's in the mailbox of the next house along from
the Orange Tree. Continue on further and you'll once again meet a gang of Fruit
Fuckers. You now get to practice your Special Attack. Simply press Space as the
pointer passes each of the four marks and you should be able to get yourself an
overkill or two. These are permanent boosts to your damage, which is useful for
attacking enemies. You also gain 2 more Spare Parts.

  | [020103]      Desperation Elementary      [020103] |

Onto another panel now. Continue further down the road and you'll finally catch
up with Gabe and Tycho. Talk to them and they'll eventually join you. Your new
companions Tycho Erasmus Brahe and Johnathan Gabriel will be used for the first
time not far from here as just ahead is yet another bunch of Fruit Fuckers.

The game this time will teach you of pair-up attacks. These can occur when you
have two or more characters with their Special Attacks active. Click the
Special Attack for either character (it doesn't matter which) and then the x2
button when you click on the enemy. Now is a great time to do Overkills though
so you might want to focus on them rather than doing more team-up attacks. You
get 3 Spare Parts for this fight.

  | [020104]      Desperation's End      [020104] |

Walk over towards the pumps and you'll initiate a full on fight. The roll for
initiative simply selects who starts the battle with their attack already
active. If you get a 20 then your Special Attack is also active off the bat.
Get killing those little blue Fruit Fuckers, each of the first three dead will
cause a new one to appear. Once you've killed the six of them a new red Fruit
Fucker (Mark II) will appear. This guy is just like the Mark I guys except
stronger and has slightly different attacks. Attack him till he's dead. You'll
earn 7 Spare Parts for this fight.

That's just about it for the tutorial level. Chat with Gabe and Tycho to learn
the intricate details of the logo before finishing up and gaining a new case,
'Up, From The Ashes'. You'll also unlock a new map area, Anne-Claire's Room.
Quite useful as otherwise you'd be stuck on this road.

The road goes on a short while longer until you reach a point where the cursor
turns into a map. Clicking on that will take you to the map screen. Click on
Anne-Claire's to get to the next part of the game. Alternatively click on the
gear icon in the top corner to first go to Gabe and Tycho's office and then on
the map there to get to Anne-Claire's Room.

 '--------'                 '--------------------'                  '--------'

Upon entering Anne-Claire's room proceed to the right a bit. Concept Art 4 is
found by clicking on the picture above the window with the telescope pointing
out, and Concept Art 5 is found by click on the table underneath the lamp to
the left of the telescope.

Go even further right and you'll spot Anne-Claire herself. Talk to her. Meander
through the conversation until asking her what you should do now. She'll tell
you of Hobo Alley which will unlock it for your visitation. This also opens up
a new case, 'The Game Is Afoot'. Before leaving for Hobo Alley, click on the
radio on the shelves behind Anne-Claire to get Album 3 'Unfathomable

  | [020301]      Cheswick & Grove      [020301] |

Click on the poster on the right-hand side of the wall of the Witch-B-Gone here
to get Concept Art 6. Talk to the guy standing on the street corner until you
run out of options. Head right along the road and you'll bump into a Fruit
Fucker (Mark II) to kill and gain 5 Spare Parts from.

Further down this street and you'll spot a mime. Walk closer to him and you'll
trigger a conversation, investigate the goo by clicking on it. You should then
manage to gain some Lube. Return to Anne-Claire's room to find out what it is
and what to do next. She'll tell you to return to your home in search of
something that sheared off the giant robot.

You can also gain the new case 'To Arms' if you ask to upgrade your weapons but
at this stage you don't have enough Spare Parts for any of them.

  | [020401]      The Old Orange Tree      [020401] |

Your street is now infested with mimes. Make your way down the street fighting
a trio of mimes as you go until you reach the orange tree. Talk to the Silent
Pope before continuing on down the street all the way back to your house.

  | [020402]      Desperation Cul-De-Sac      [020402] |

You might have noticed it earlier but you couldn't do anything with it then,
click on the large bolt in the middle of the ruins of your house. With the
Giant Bolt in your inventory it's time to go back to Anne-Claire's again to get
it checked out.

She'll send you back to Hobo Alley again but you'll also be allowed to go to a
new location, Pelican Bay. You also gain Anne-Clair as a support character much
like the cat T. Kemper. You can click on her icon when she's active and she'll
run in with a flamethrower dealing 100 damage (double to robots).

 ,--------,                     ,------------,                      ,--------,

 '--------'                     '------------'                      '--------'

  | [020501]      Cheswick & Grove      [020501] |

Talk to the guy on the corner again. He'll introduce himself as James Filth and
ask you to help rid the streets of evil trashcans and give you the new case
'The Rise Of The Refuse'. You'll now find that the streets of Hobo Alley have
become infested with Animate Trash. Approach the one to the right and engage it
in combat. Once the little guy is dead you'll be shown a counter of how many
there are left, that's ten in total to kill.

Head north along Cheswick a bit, click on the moving purple box to unleash a
few Fruit Fuckers for you to fight. You'll get 10 Spare Parts and both Gabe and
Tycho at this point should level up if you've killed all the enemies so far.
This will give Tycho his Special Attack and now let you earn him some Overkill

It's only a tiny step to West Chestnut Park.

  | [020502]      West Chestnut Park      [020502] |

Click the shaking box just ahead for another fight with a pair of Fruit
Fuckers. You should try out Tycho's new attack which you can perform using
either WASD or the arrow keys. You earn 10 Spare Parts from this fight.

Go talk to the guy in the park, Dr. Ernald P. Whimple. You won't get much of
anything out of him but still. Leave the park and head east along the road
until you reach a junction. Go north and fight the three Animate Trash + Skinny
Hobo at the end. The hobo is resistant to punches so don't use Gabe on him too
much, he's also weak to firearms so Tycho is a good choice of attack. That
should take the total down to 6 left.

Click on the cardboard house in the corner for Concept Art 7. Continue on east
along the street and into the next panel.

  | [020503]      West Chestnut & Grove      [020503] |

Approach the next junction and the Fruit Fuckers on the roof will join with two
Animate Trash for a fight. That's 10 more Spare Parts and a couple more trash
taken care of. Onto the next junction and you'll spot a rather large golden key
at the far end, approach the hobos to defeat them and win it. The Fat Hobo is
like the Skinny Hobo except it isn't resistant to fists so there's something
for Gabe to do.

Once they're defeated click on the winding key to pick it up. On the corner by
the lamppost is another rattling box full of Fruit Fuckers for you to kill.
That's 10 more Spare Parts to add to your collection. Go further to the right
and into another panel.

  | [020504]      West Chestnut Street      [020504] |

There's yet another box of Fruit Fuckers next to the lamppost right away, and
yes, 10 shiny new Spare Parts. Just up the road you'll find another couple of
Animate Trash with a couple of hobos. Just two remain. Head back to the
previous panel and then south to Grove Bend.

  | [020505]      Grove Bend      [020505] |

Click on the red poster on the building on the corner. This will unlock Concept
Art 8. There's a box of Fruit Fuckers back to the right, once you've got the 15
Spare Parts from them, go left and approach the Animate Trash just along there
and you'll be fighting the last two plus a Fat Hobo. Once they're dead you've
all but finished the case.

Before we do that, talk to the guy standing next to some cooking pots. Gerhard
Kettle will introduce himself and give you a new case, 'The Meat of Human
Kindness' if you ask him if you can help. He requires meat, not just any meat
but sanctioned meat, which you don't have of course.

Carry on along to the left and you'll end up back at the start of Hobo Alley.

  | [020506]      Cheswick & Grove      [020506] |

Talk to James Filth once again to finish your case off and earn yourself a not
so shiny, not so new, red token. Time to go to Pelican Bay for a short stay.

 ,--------,                     ,-------------,                     ,--------,

 '--------'                     '-------------'                     '--------'

  | [020601]      Tollbooth      [020601] |

Talk to the guy standing behind the desk at the tollbooth, Kurtis Swindell, and
work your way through the conversation until you buy the Giant Gear with the
token you got from completing James Filth's case. If you also ask to be let in
you'll get a new case 'Pelican Bay, Or, The Bloody Boardwalk'. Head back to
Anne-Claire's room for now.

Give both the key and gear to Anne-Claire before heading off again. Ask her
what's next and you'll be pointed in the direction of Hobo Alley once again.
Before leaving you may wish to upgrade your weapons.

 ,--------,                     ,------------,                      ,--------,

 '--------'                     '------------'                      '--------'

  | [020701]      West Chestnut Park      [020701] |

Head north to the park which you'll now find closed. Go to the right to
encounter Dr. Ernald P. Whimple who is now in a much more talkative mood. He'll
give you the new case; 'The Nobel Pee Prize'. Your task now is to roam Hobo
Alley killing all the hobos. Take it in an anti-clockwise direction heading
first to the park where you'll meet the first three of the 17 hobos you are
required to kill.

  | [020702]      Cheswick & Grove      [020702] |

The next three are down by James Filth. It's not far to the next four.

  | [020703]      Grove Bend      [020703] |

The next two are right on the corner. Head north to West Chestnut & Grove.

  | [020704]      West Chestnut & Grove      [020704] |

Three more hobos are just along the road to the left. Just two left. Go all the
way left onto the next panel.

  | [020705]      West Chestnut Park      [020705] |

The final two hobos are here by the lamppost on the corner. Talk to Whimple
over to the left to finish off this section of his case. He gives you a Monkey
Card, a Pelican Bay Ticket and some Pocket Lint. He'll give you the next task,
getting him a 1/64 scale model of the Sinwheel. Stroll out of the gate a little
and a cutscene will occur.

Time to go into The Shithole. Make your way there fighting through a few hobos
blocking your way.

  | [020706]      The Shithole      [020706] |

Click on the clown picture on the wall behind you to grab Concept Art 9. Talk
to The Slumlord and converse with him until you have no more options left. The
click each of the three doors in turn. Once you've seen the last of them click
on the fourth door to get into the warehouse.

  | [020707]      Warehouse      [020707] |

Make your way to the other end of the warehouse, fighting several Fruit Fuckers
and hobos as you go. There are two battles, each giving 10 Spare Parts, before
you reach the other end. Also note that each table in the room has a single
Spare Part on for you to pick up.

If you walk over to the left side of the far end you'll notice a machine, click
on it and you'll unlock Album 2. You'll also be able to get your meat stamped
for the Meat of Human Kindness case.

Before advancing and attacking The Slumlord you might like to note that it is
possible to have found enough Spare Parts to upgrade all three of your weapons
once. So if you have enough you should go back to Anne-Claire to get them
upgraded and then come back and walk over to The Slumlord.

  | [020708]      Slum Lord      [020708] |

Take care of the three hobos first and the Slum Lord will advance to attack
personally instead of from afar. Once you've got him down below 699 he'll
retreat and bring on a Fruit Fucker and a Hobo. Kill them to get to the Slum
Lord again until he reaches 399. One more hobo will emerge for you to kill
before getting back to the Slumlord to finish him off.

He'll take 160 damage from Hot Toddies so if you've got them use them when
there's that much space between his current and cutoff health as he regenerates
back to that number when standing back. Overall if you've upgraded your weapons
you should be able to easily take care of him. You also get 10 Spare Parts from
this fight.

Click on the box next to the furnace to get an "On" Switch, then click on the
Inactive Robot on the table. Once you've got that head back outside and go down
to where Gerhard is.

  | [020709]      Grove Bend      [020709] |

There's a few Hobos and a Fruit Fucker in the way so kill them and get your 5
Spare Parts. Talk to Gerhard to close his case. Also, make sure to eat the food
he offers as you get 50 health from it. If you declined you can always go back
and ask for some. That brings your stay in Hobo Alley to an end for now.

Head back to Anne-Claire and give her the Inactive Robot. She'll give it back
as a support character named Fuchsia. This robot can be called upon to do a
decent attack that gets strong each time you use it, so call it as often as you

 ,--------,                     ,-------------,                     ,--------,

  | [020801]      Tollbooth      [020801] |

Talk to Kurtis and convince him that you're a family now that you've got the
ticket from completing the hobo killing part of Whimple's Nobel Pee Prize case.
Case Closed.

Advancing through the gate you'll spot a mime. A friendly mime. Talk to him and
he'll give you a new case, 'To See, Or Not To See'. The case requires you to
find three invisible items for him. Continue on past him and you'll spot a pair
of Savage Clowns standing on the corner. Kill them and you'll get a couple of
Exploding Clown Noses. These can be used against other clowns as they're quite

Walk over the the Flying Pricks booth and get playing the minigame. You'll need
a total of 5 Red Tokens for the rest of the game so now's a good time to get
them. To play you need to aim just above the balloons when throwing the darts
and to get 12 points. You don't get anything special for getting more points

Moving on we head down the path north. If you click on a poster in the front of
Sinister Slip's Iced Creams you can collect Concept Art 10. There's also a box
of two Fruit Fuckers (Mark IV) on the bench just before the Ice Cream shop, you
get 50 Spare Parts for killing them, they do some pretty high damage so you
either need to be a high level, have a lot of bandages or be good at blocking.
The experience they give will let you advance levels quickly by killing them

Continue onto the next panel ahead.

  | [020802]      Midway      [020802] |

There's another box of Fruit Fuckers over to the right (50 Spare Parts) and a
pair of clowns directly ahead, kill them all! If you can, of course. Make your
way towards the Fortune Teller Machine in the middle of the path, over near the
Barbershop Quartet.

Try and get a fortune from it and you'll discover that is missing an "On"
Switch, how lucky that you picked one up in the Shithole Warehouse. This is the
first part of your new case 'The Mistress Mysterious', and you can solve it
right away. If you have managed to get some red tokens you'll be able to get
onto the second part. She'll dispense a fortune 'SILENCE THE LAUGHTER'. Step
away for now.

If you kill the Barbershop Quartet over to the left you'll be given a Mouth
Harp, you'll need that later. They're each resistant and weak towards your
weapons so you'll need to work out which if you don't want to waste time. The
tall one with a round head is the Barbershop Lead. He is weak to team-up
attacks. The other tall one is the Tenor. Hit him with Rake. The normal sized
guy is the Baritone, weak to Firearms. And that leaves the short guy, the Bass,
he's vulnerable to punches.

Continue on down Midway and you'll spot another mini-game, this one called
Vandalism. Again you need five of these tokens so get throwing. To play you
need to get the bar to stop in the red zones on each of the bars, if you get it
perfect you'll knock down the whole pile, if not you might knock a few or none.
It can be quite tricky to get it to stop where you want it to so just keep
going until you get five by scoring 12 or more.

Once you have five or more you can stop. Over by the bench in front of
Vandalism there's the carcass of a seagull, it's shaking so click on it and
some Fruit Fuckers will emerge. That's another 50 Spare Parts for your
collection. You might now be able to go and get one of your weapons upgraded

Keep on going down Midway and you'll spot a pair of clowns to kill, yay.
Remember that clown nose are really effective against them (800 damage!) and
that you'll probably get them replaced at the end of the fight anyway.

If you go over to the left you'll spot a trio of mimes. Just to the left of
them is a shop with a red poster in the middle, click that poster for Concept
Art 11. Then kill the mimes. You cannot hit Boardwalk Mimes with your specials
so don't even bother trying. You'll find the first invisible item, Invisible
Rope, by killing them.

That's it for Midway right now so go to the end and off panel.

  | [020803]      Promenade      [020803] |

A short click away is a group of clowns, containing the elusive big one you
need to kill for the Fortune Teller. He'll be laughing a lot. Clown Noses at
the ready! Click on the shaking box to the left to unleash some more Mark IV
Fruit Fuckers. That's 50 Spare Parts right there that is.

If you go down now and click on the anchor at the end you'll pick up the last
of the concept art, Concept Art 12. If you've got them all you can now read the
Bonus Comic as well.

There's a shaking seagull on the right of the anchor with yet another two
little robots hiding inside. 50 more Spare Parts. To the right are a couple of
Boardwalk Mimes to kill in order to get past. Continue past and onto the next

  | [020804]      Gates of Silence      [020804] |

Right on the corner there's a shaking shoe, yep, Fruit Fuckers with 50 Spare
Parts (again you can now get another upgrade if you wish). Further on you'll
spot the third mini-game, Balls and Holes. This is another traditional game
where you throw balls and try and get them into holes. As long as you aim for
the 200 spot you should be fine. Again, get five blue tokens.

Investigate the black mist to the right, at the moment you can't get through it
so go back to the Promenade.

  | [020805]      Promenade      [020805] |

Head left to kill a couple of Savage Clowns. Once they're dead click on a box
of milk bottles that are shaking. Two Fruit Fuckers reside for another 50 Spare

Kill the clowns in the Tollbooth area and go back to the tollbooth itself to
talk to Swindell and purchase both the Sinwheel and the Phonograph Horn. Time
to head back to Hobo Alley for a brief visit.

  | [020901]      West Chestnut Park      [020901] |

Talk to Ernald and give him your new Sinwheel for his experiments. As thanks he
gives you some Ultra Urine. And that closes that case. Back to Pelican Bay now.

 ,--------,                     ,-------------,                     ,--------,

  | [021001]      Midway      [021001] |

Talk to the Fortune Telling Machine again as you've managed to kill that large
laughing clown, right? The machine gives you a new fortune, 'ENTERTAIN US'.
Step away from the machine and advance to the far end of Midway and off to the

  | [021002]      Promenade      [021002] |

There's a new Barbershop Quartet up ahead for you to kill. You get Spoons for
winning. Go to the right now.

  | [021003]      Gates of Silence      [021003] |

There they are, the last Barbershop Quartet you need to kill. A Kazoo is yours.
That finishes off the trio of instruments so head back to the Fortune Telling

  | [021004]      Midway      [021004] |

Playing the tune will both complete the task and unlock Album 4. Get the next
fortune which reads 'YOU WILL SEIZE THE LIGHT'. You also get a fourth fortune,
'YOG SETHIS, IA! IA! MALDON UMBRUTHIA!'. You might be able to guess that this
is used to bring down the Cataract, off to the Gates of Silence we go.

  | [021005]      Gates of Silence      [021005] |

Click on the fog and recite that last fortune. It's gone. Go past and get into
a mime fight. There's a seagull on the floor just past them, it contains the
last four Fruit Fuckers in the game so get your 100 Spare Parts and continue.

You'll spot a large object in the path, pick it up and take the Giant Light
back to Anne-Claire for investigation. That will close 'The Game Is Afoot' and
open 'To Fell A God'. You should also be able to fully upgrade the rest of your
weapons, closing the 'To Arms' case.

Your task now is to find a soul and some technology. First stop: Desperation

 ,--------,                 ,--------------------,                  ,--------,

 '--------'                 '--------------------'                  '--------'

  | [021101]      The Old Orange Tree      [021101] |

The Silent Pope is your target. The old tree is completely gone now and he's
raring for a fight. With 2000 hitpoints you'll want to have upgraded your
weapons by now. Just keep attacking and blocking and you'll win, duh. Gabe's
punches will be quite useful here. Defense dropping potions are also of great
use as he has quite a high defense. Combine that with raising Gabe's power and
using his Special Attack and you've got yourself a winning combo.

With his defeat you gain his Dark Mime Soul. Nice. Head back to Pelican Bay

 ,--------,                     ,-------------,                     ,--------,
| [021200] |~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~|  Pelican Bay  |~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~| [021200] |

  | [021201]      Midway      [021201] |

Approach the Fortune Telling Machine and you'll get into a mime fight. Once
you've killed the two Dark Mimes and two Boardwalk Mimes you get the reward,
the Invisible Stairs. Click on the Fortune Telling Machine one last time to
close the 'The Mistress Mysterious' case, and then collect the Vacuum Tube from
within. Head off back to Anne-Claire and get your weapons upgraded with the
three items; Ultra Urine, Dark Mime Soul, and the Vacuum Tube.

  | [021202]      Promenade      [021202] |

Still yet to finish off the ex-mime's case you need to kill this final bunch of
still-mimes. With your newly upgraded weapons this should be a breeze and the
Invisible Suitcase is yours. Head back to the Tollbooth area.

  | [021203]      Tollbooth      [021203] |

One final chat with Dr. Coriander Stripe, give him back his invisible items and
he'll reward you with some Invisible Weights that give you +10 Attack. One more
case closed. By now you should just have cases 1 and 4 still open. Head to the
Gates of Silence area now and we'll get finished.

  | [021204]      Gates of Silence      [021204] |

On the approach to The Silent One (which you will now be able to do) you'll
have one quick fight with a pair of ordinary Mimes. Two boardwalks will then
attack with a Dark Mime. Once they're gone you get accosted by four Dark Mimes.
With the ultimate upgrades this shouldn't really be a problem. After that you
can now approach the final boss. Note that after you defeat it you won't be
able to wander the streets again so make sure to have found all of the Concept
Art, Albums, Spare Parts and closed all but 1 and 4 of the cases before
clicking on the big guy.

  | [021205]      Yog Sethis, The Silent One      [021205] |

To fight The Silent One, who has 45000 health, you really need to make use of
your Special Attacks and to be able to successfully block attacks otherwise
you're going to get crushed. Having First Aid Kits and Gauzes is going to come
in handy, just in case of course. Once you get him down past 36000 he starts
with some different attacks, and once again at 22000. Anne-Claire's attack does
1000 damage to him and you might also find Dynamite and Hot Toddies useful in
bringing him down.

Once you manage to defeat him you get a preview of the next episode and then
the credits roll. You can go back into your game to look around the office but
you can't do anything else.
