that people would ask about the game.

- Copyright Information: The small, yet important section on copyright information.

Space Quest 3 is one of the best Space Quest adventures. It's fun to play, there's 
lots to do, and for once it has a great ending! So what's the storyline this time? 
Well, the Two Guys from Andromeda, makers of Space Quest 1 and Space Quest 2, are 
kidnapped in this chapter of Space Quest. There is talk that the two guys were under 
contract to Scumsoft, a software publisher known for making games that are extremely 
boring. Attempts had been made to contact the company president Elmo Pug, but he did 
not respond, and the whereabouts of Scumsoft is unknown.

So although the storyline may not sound all that great, once you start playing the 
game it gets fun. But what has changed since the last two games? Everything! The 
graphics are much improved, the sound now comes out of the speakers, whereas it used 
to come out of the computer's internal speaker, which... was not good. There are 
many more choices to make within the game, many more things to try, and also Space 
Quest 3 is bigger than Space Quest 1 and Space Quest 2 put together.

And that's about all there is to this Space Quest 3 FAQ. I hope my FAQ helps you 
with this game.

=====================================================================

3. My review

=====================================================================

Space Quest 1 was created by Sierra in 1987. It was one of the first graphic 
adventure games, where you had to actually type in commands in order to make the 
game work. Space Quest 1 introduced Roger Wilco, a janitor aboard the spaceship 
Arcada. He was happily snoozing away in a broom closet, when some deadly aliens 
called Sariens took over the ship, stole a precious device known as the star 
generator, and killed everyone on board apart from Wilco. He wakes up shortly after 
hearing the emergency call that the ship is going to explode in 15 minutes. After 
escaping from the ship, the object was to retrieve the star generator, and lead 
Roger safely home. Because this was one of the first adventure games out, Space 
Quest 1 was obviously a great success, and it was no surprise when a year later, 
Space Quest 2 came out. Space Quest 2 was based shortly after Space Quest 1. Sludge 
Vohaul (who was the bad guy from Space Quest 1), was accidentally defeated by Roger 
when he blew the Sarien ship up. In Space Quest 1, Vohaul intended to kill all of 
the people on Xenon (Roger's home planet). In Space Quest 2, his plan was to dump a 
whole load of insurance salesmen onto the planet instead. Although lacking the depth 
of the original, Space Quest 2 was a great success. So it was no great surprise when 
two years later, Space Quest 3 came out.

At the end of Space Quest 2, Roger Wilco blasts off from Vohaul's asteroid in a pod. 
In the pod was a sleep chamber, which Roger quickly stepped inside. Space Quest 3 
starts some time after Space Quest 2, where Roger's pod has been picked up by a 
humongous robot controlled garbage freighter. As the pod lands hard on the debris in 
the junk freighter, the pod opens the sleep chamber, which awakens Roger from his 
deep sleep. Space Quest 3 was made nearly two years after Space Quest 2. So did this 
long time away mean any significant improvements over the previous two games?

Graphics - 10/10

The graphics in Space Quest 3 are absolutely amazing considering that they were made 
in 1989. There seems to be amazing amounts of detail on everything. Roger now looks 
much more lifelike, and is animated much better than in the previous two games. The 
scenery has also had lots of detail applied to it, and all of the backgrounds look 
very well drawn. The whole game is still in EGA graphics, but the graphics are so 
good that you could easily mistake them for being VGA. The graphics were so good, 
that they even won an award for best PC EGA graphics from Game Player's magazine. 
Unlike the other two games, an incredible amount of attention has been paid to the 
graphics in Space Quest 3. Back in 1989, the graphics in Space Quest 3 must have 
been absolutely amazing, and that's the way people should try and remember them.

Sound - 9/10

For those of you who have played the previous two games, you may have realised how 
terrible the sound was. What sound there was, came from the PC's internal speaker. 
The sound consisted of beeps of different pitches, and was basically terrible. 
Thankfully, Space Quest 3 is the first Space Quest game to have stereo sound, and it 
uses it very well. The sound effects usually consist of crashes, beeps and other 
simple but effective noises. The music is excellent, and can be heard in most of the 
games locations. The music and sound effects in Space Quest 3 are a vast improvement 
over the previous two games.

Game Play - 9/10

Space Quest 3 is totally different from the adventure games these days. Usually with 
adventure games, you use the mouse to get, use or look at certain objects, simply by 
moving the cursor and clicking on various objects. In Space Quest 3, you use the 
keyboard to do everything. To walk left, right, up or down, you use the arrow keys. 
To get, use or look at certain objects, you actually have to type in what you want 
to do, such as "get the object". This is actually a much more fun way of playing 
games, as it requires you to think about what you are typing. In the previous two 
games, this typing interface was a bit of a problem, as the game could hardly 
understand what you were typing in. Things have been much improved in Space Quest 3 
however, as the game understands even the most complex sentences. The game is very 
difficult in places, requiring you to really think about a puzzle before you can get 
past it. The game is non-linear, meaning that you don't have to follow a strict and 
certain path. This is good, as it encourages you to go off exploring in the game 
whenever you like. Another aspect of what makes the game so good is trying to find 
all the points (738 is the most you can get). When you complete the game for the 
first time, it's unlikely that you will find all the points, as there are many 
different ways to complete this game. This game has great game play as there are 
just so many things to do.

Last Ability - 9/10

For those of you who have played the previous two games, you may have noticed that 
Space Quest 2 was considerably more difficult than Space Quest 1. With Space Quest 
3, the game is even more of a challenge than the previous game. The locations in 
Space Quest 3 are both original and varied, and you may just spend yourself spending 
a few minutes admiring all of the detail. The puzzles have been made extremely 
difficult in this game, but luckily the typing interface has been improved so that 
it understands more when you type in commands. Whenever you accomplish a certain 
important task in the game, you will get points added to your overall score. There 
are 738 points to find in total, and finding every single point is extremely 
difficult. For this reason, it's likely that your score isn't going to be 738/738 
straight away, so you'll probably want to go back and try and find things that will 
get you more points. By the 2nd game, you might have maximum points. By the 3rd 
game, you'll have probably found out that there's still a lot more to do in the game 
besides getting maximum points. By the 4th game, you might have found just about 
everything there is to do. And from then on, you might just want to play the game 
for the fun of it! Space Quest 3 is definitely  longer lasting than the previous two 
games.

Overall - 9/10

So, is Space Quest 3 better than the other two games? Well, the graphics have been 
much improved. Even though they are still in EGA, the graphics have been updated, 
detailed and drawn as far as EGA can possibly go. The sound is also a major 
difference over to previous two games. There is actually stereo sound in this game, 
something which was unfortunately missing from Space Quest 1 and Space Quest 2. The 
game play has been made more difficult, but also remains just as fun, due to the 
fact that the typing interface seems to understand basically every word you type in. 
The last ability has also been improved. There are more puzzles, more secrets, more 
things to do, and many more locations. Overall, Space Quest 3 greatly improves over 
the previous two games.

4. The Guide

=====================================================================
 
This guide is written in the quickest way possible, and it also shows you how to get 
maximum points, but it doesn't show you all the game has to offer. Like the previous 
Space Quest games, Space Quest 3 doesn't follow a certain path, meaning that it's 
possible to go places that you might not have gone the first time you played it. 
This guide is the way I have played Space Quest 3, and is not necessarily the 
fastest or most fun way. Enjoy!

---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Help! The Arnoid has chasing after me. Where should I go and what should I do?

A. The easiest way to destroy the Arnoid is to go up in the World O' Wonders 
elevator. Once you've gone up the elevator, wait for the Arnoid to come close, and 
then push the pulley into him.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. I've destroyed the Arnoid, but it seems to me that it was very easy to do. Is 
there a more difficult way to destroy the Arnoid, and what would be the advantages 
of the difficult way?

A. Yes, there is a more difficult way. One screen to the west of the ship that you 
landed in are some pods hanging from a rock. The more difficult way of destroying 
the Arnoid is to make him follow you under the pods. The advantages of this way is 
that you get 10 extra points. Meaning that if you're going for maximum points, you 
need to destroy the Arnoid in this way.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. What do I do when I've destroyed the Arnoid?

A. Get his invisibility belt. If you have destroyed the Arnoid by using the pods, 
you will need to use the Orat stick to get the belt.
