* DevelopersForesight: Think you can cheat Desert Bus by clamping down the acceleration button? The bus constantly veers to the right, and, if it hits the sand on the side of the road, the bus gets towed back to town (also in real time).

* AllThereInTheManual: The elements of the game are not immediately obvious to those who just catch a glimpse at the game. [[http://www.pennfans.net/files/Smoke-and-Mirrors/Smoke%20&%20Mirrors%20-%20Manual.pdf The manual]] is designed so the owner can set up the tricks in order to fool his friends.

'''''Penn and Teller's Smoke and Mirrors''''' is a 1995 game featuring illusionist duo Creator/PennAndTeller. It was made for the [[SegaGenesis Sega CD]]. Although the game was completed, it was unreleased when its publisher, Creator/AbsoluteEntertainment, went bankrupt, although the game had appeared in gaming publications beforehand. It resurfaced years later when an owner to a website that documents unreleased games received a copy from an initial reviewer.

* DevelopersForesight: Thought you could cheat your way through Desert Bus by holding down the A button with something? Too bad the bus constantly veers to the right to stop this.

* ''Desert Bus'': The most well-known among the minigames, where you must drive 360 miles from Tucson, AZ to Las Vegas on a desolate highway, without being able to go faster than 45 MPH, and with the steering bus pulling slightly to the right to prevent you from simply putting a weight on the drive button to keep it moving. Has been a subject of ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun's'' ''WebVideo/DesertBusForHope'' charity drive, and has also been ported to [=iOS=] and Android devices with proceeds going towards Child's Play.

* EyeBeams: In ''Smoke and Mirror'', the Impossible difficulty setting has the player run into Creator/LouReed after one screen, who will shoot beams from his eyes at the player, who in turn is instantly killed.

** But to further emphasize the point (no pun intended), the score is shown with eight placeholders, so after you drive eight hours, the score reads "00000001".
