The Three Musketeers: The Game
Dingo Games has released its latest adventure game for the Mac, The Three Musketeers: The Game. Following the original Three Musketeers novel, players take control of D'Artagnan who has set off for Paris in the hopes of becoming a Musketeer. During the game players will mingle with some of the more well known Musketeers such as Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, and will be forced to stop an evil plot developed by the Cardinal Richelieu to disgrace the queen, as well as retrieve the queen's 12 diamond studs in time for the royal ball.
The game allows players to do everything from gathering loot to dueling enemies, along with fire flintlocks to defeat bad guys from a distance. It offers both a series of mini-games and side quests that the player takes part in throughout the game, including saving maidens in distress, playing tennis in the royal tennis court, avenging old friends, or gambling in either card or dice games.
The Three Musketeers: The Game is available as either a free-demo download from the company's website, or the full version which is priced at $25.
