Movie to game transitions are nothing new, but since most of the them are average (at best) or god awful (at worst), you can’t help feel a little cynical about them. Shrek 3 walks the middle line, offering little novelty in its arcade presentation. If you’ve played any number of arcade action games (previous Shrek games included) then you have a solid idea on what to expect here.

Snap57Shrek 3 loosely follows the plotline from the animated movie with the same title. You play not only as Shrek but several characters from said movie (Donkey, Puss in Boots), as they set out to find the rightful heir to the throne and clobber an army of bad guys on the way… and also collect coins and fairy dust, punch boxes, flip levers and engage in simple platforming. The intended audience is comprised of kids ages 7 and up, but adults can increase the difficulty level and enjoy a modicum of challenge.

The game initially switches characters in a scripted manner, but later on you can do this on the fly when particular puzzles warrant it. These can range from simplistic tasks, such as opening a gate, to more complicated ones. Each level is broken down into smaller sections and one boss fight. Throughout each level, you will be faced with various puzzles that require you to use all of your team to accomplish. Simple yet effective contrivances like these will keep younger players in the game.

The only issue is that figuring out the controls are a bit difficult at first, since the game refuses to spell out what key does what in the tutorial section (you have to manually open the controls menu and memorize each key). Interestingly, Shrek the Third also includes a fairly full-fledged multiplayer mode. There are six simple yet enjoyable multiplayer games: Castle Attack, Catacombs Lead, Frog Herder, Shrekleboard, Ships Ahoy and Shooting Gallery.

    Won’t Install On Windows 10. Tried Setting The Compatibility Mode To Windows XP (Service Pack 3) And Running As Administrator, But An Error Message Pops Up Saying “1628: Failed To Complete Installation”. Any Other Suggestions?

    Is There Any Other Way Besides Downloading A Virtual Machine? Because I Really Don’t Want To Download Anything Just To Get This To Install And I Really Don’t Want To Mess Up My Computer.

    Hi,
    It’s been a few months since we last talked. I actually went to try the game (I tried the demo, not the full game) on VirtualBox, but there is full black all over a lot of the objects (such as the moving clouds in the main menu and pretty much everything in the gameplay such as the character and background) even though Direct3D is enabled. How do i fix it?

  5. Anthony says:

    Hi again,
    I went to see if I could do it on my desktop with VirtualBox, but nothing even appeared on screen. It was literally just either a white or brown screen.

  6. Sorry no idea. Played it on Win7. Fidget with the 3d settings in ati catalyst / nvidia control center.

  7. Anthony says:

    Well, the last two messages I sent you, I wasn’t doing it on Windows 10 anymore, I was doing it on Windows 7 (both my laptop and desktop are now W7). My graphics card for my desktop is ATI Radeon HD 4200 and the one for my laptop is Intel HD Graphics 4000. Where do I go to fidget with the settings? Because I have no idea how to get to it and I don’t know if I have to do it in either the Host PC or the Virtual PC.

  8. Anthony says:

    Well, I looked at the Display settings on both Virtual PCs on my desktop and laptop and they are both using a VirtualBox Graphics Adapter. But how do I change it to what the host PC and laptop is using?

    Old pc gaming, what are the most downloaded games from torrent on this site?

  10. You need to install ati catalyst. you probably already have it. right click on desktop anywhere and it might be there https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-open-catalyst-control-center.767115/

    I don’t know which torrents are most downloaded. Shooters probably.
