Words from the company:
Repton 3 takes the popular Repton 1 idea of level-by-level play, adds most of the extra Repton 2 characters, and brings in time capsules, fungus and crowns. The time capsules allow for some cunning time-based puzzles, while the fungus is also a time-related feature – it's often best to block it in before it spreads wild.
Each scenario has its own individual online Hall of Fame chart, and there is a special prestigious online Hall of Fame listing for the total number of scenarios completed by each player! Will you be the first to complete all 160 levels in the 20 scenarios?
The 160 levels include all of the levels from the well known Prelude, Toccata, Finale, Around The World, The Life of Repton and Repton Thru Time scenarios ... plus 16 new levels!
New high-resolution graphics showing Repton in America, the Arctic, the Orient, Oceans and Africa; five stages of his life; five of his time-traveling exploits ... plus the new Encore designs.
You can choose either the standard or themed graphics, and you can even switch the graphics with just a single key press while playing the game or viewing the map.
The Scenario Selection Screen enables each scenario to be selected easily; and the Progress Screen shows the completion status of each individual level as green, yellow, orange or red.
The Repton 3 Editor includes versatile features for level design, character design and high-resolution graphics assignment.

The latest games out in the computer world are being designed with higher graphics and more realistic action so that a person can get immersed into a fantasy role and then along comes Repton 3. This very basic, move your character around with the cursor keys and collect diamonds and crowns, comes along and bang …. You are addicted! You just have to get through another level, learning from your mistakes and try not to repeat them so that you can move on. You want to quit but your fingers do not and you go on and on until your wife calls you to supper for the fourth and last time.
In this latest version of Repton, your heart won't go racing but your instinct and smarts are challenged and you do have to think strategies to get through the levels and there certainly quite a few of those to get through so the game is well worth the nominal cost.
This game is loads of fun, addictive, non violent but most of all great for all ages. Get it, I guarantee you won't regret it.
