Interactive Fantasies is probably the best ZZT company ever, or at least since Software Visions. Herc, the usual GOTM/CGOTM reviewer, decided never to let anything out of his company be honored as a GOTM, most likely to avoid arguments, and Gem Hunter 3 went by unmentioned. Now that Herc is away on vacation, I decided it was time to be nice and give my old buddy, tseng, the GOTM he never received, but deserved.
... I'm not going to bother getting into great detail, because it's obvious that this game would be cooler than you ("By default, I am cooler than you." - tseng), due to the success of the GH series and tseng name. GH3 has the usual classic Gem Hunter gameplay, except with a level-select system, Mega Man style. Pick a foe, kick some ass. Each bastard has his own world of gems and fun, and after you beat them all, you get to chase down the disguised final enemy (Which isn't me. ... But at least I was a boss!), in the next game file. Bah. GH3 has a decent plot, which is unusual for most tseng games, and tseng made the music himself.
My only complaint is the lack of the classic Gem Hunter: SE tune, which would've been awesome for nostalgia. But, hey, this game kicks ass, and is the best damned tseng game to date (unless you're a rabid November Eve fan). Take a look, morons and maniacs.
