Quest 3 Game Information
The game was released in March 1989 and one of the first in the
world with soundblaster support. There is over 30
minutes of great music in the game. It also supports mouse and
the new parser interface understands almost every word you type.
The graphics have improved and you'll find the following 16 colors
in the game:
I think the graphics are great and they come close to 256 color
VGA in some parts. Some say the game was a little bit too short
and/or easy to beat, but long enough to convince the Software Publishers
of America that this is the "Best Adventure Game of the Year"
(1989 -ed). In my opinion this is also the best Space Quest. The
story is great, the game is very funny and the atmosphere in unbeatable,
thanks to the great graphics and music.
