Quick game instructions
Repton 3 is a puzzle game. To complete each level, you must:
- Collect all diamonds
- Collect the crown
- Unlock safes
- Kill all monsters
- Cage all spirits
- Defuse the timebomb to finish
Use your the map screen (M) and status screen (Enter) to see how you are
You begin with 3 lives.
- You die if a rock falls on you from above.
- You die if a monster gets you.
- You die if a spirit flies into you.
- You die if you touch skulls.
- You die if you touch fungus.
- You die if you run out of time.
- You should avoid dying.
A Level may become impossible. For example, a diamond may be blocked off by rocks. This means you screwed up. Hit 'Esc' to lose your remaining lives (or Shift+R to kill yourself in style) and then start all over again. You may have to do this several times before you complete the game [[understatement]]
