"3 in Three takes you on a madcap journey inside your personal computer when a freak power surge zaps the number 3 off a Petty Cash Report and abandons her in a land where numbers don't count and the letters spell disaster! A tour de force of animation and sound, 3 in Three challenges you to help the stranded 3 repair the damaged system, evade a virus detector, outwit an annoying pi symbol, and thwart a host of misfit vowels, all in her desperate attempts to get back home.

3 in Three is an interactive treasure hunt, an unfolding trail of word puzzles, logic dilemmas, and sinister brain twisters, over eighty in all. As you conquer each and every challenge, you are rewarded with new scenes of outrageous animation and the clues you will need to unlock the sacred Temple of Rhyme nor Reason.

When all the pieces fall into place, an animated grande finale awaits those who help the 3 find true happiness!" --from the instruction manual
