"Space Quest 3 is a graphical adventure. The mouse is functional for movement and inventory access, however the game primarily relies on a text parser for specific commands and manipulation of objects on screen. In addition to the regular gameplay, there are also various mini-games, such as a simple non-scrolling arcade game Astro Chicken, as well as a radar screen representation for ship-to-ship space combat."

Also in this series: I: The Sarien Encounter (original and remake), II: Vohaul's Revenge, IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers, 6: The Spinal Frontier

The “Two Guys” disguise? I assembled and wore mine... for around 30 seconds in 1991. I still have the original box, disks, etc. The glasses, however, are lost to the ages.

It could just be me but I think the patch is only "partially" working. I played through up until the game needs resource 004 (disk 5) and then it freezes just like the non-patched game does at the opening animation.
