A huge update to the first two games, Ne Touchez Pas 3 is a 50 level game with four playable characters (just incase the bird got on your nerves) - the bird, Jet Pod, Rockit, and Spaceman. Each takes unique controls and needs different ways of completing levels.

Another new feature is the menu interface. Instead of the first two's straight-run, password-to-skip-to-a-level system, NTP3 features an organised level select, for which you can pick any of the 50 levels to be played with any of the four characters. Levels can be skipped too. Furthermore, the game remembers and marks which levels you've completed and which you've not for each character, and gives you an overall percentage should you be a completist.

The new characters bring a more everyone-friendly mood to the game, since there are many levels that are easy to complete. The game's hardcore roots still exist however, with the last few levels being ball-breakingly difficult.

Controls for each character are given within each's Level 1. The menu is navigated with the mouse, with tabs around the level select changing characters, saving/loading progress, customising the various colours of the game (as in NTP2), etc.

For the record, the highest achieved percentage of completion in the game is 99% by "Legendary". 99% = 198/200 levels complete (50 levels x 4 characters).

I hope you enjoy the game. If you've anything to say about it, bugs to report, etc, feel free to comment.

I still like the second one better. But this one is nice.

Nice. It sort of takes out the most brutal factor out of the game, that is, the idea of getting stuck on some level and having to continue despite your hands bleeding. Now you can just leave and come back or play Rockit for some more relief ;)
