Gals Panic 3 is a variant of the classic puzzle game "Qix" where the player works to uncover the highlighted area of the play space to reveal a girl. The player gets to select which girl to uncover before each stage. When a player reveals 80% of a girl the stage ends and the player is shown the entire background image. If the player reveals 100% of the silhouetted image, then he is shown a series of different photos of the current girl before continuing on to the next stage. Between stages there are mini-games where the player can win the chance to see an image of another girl.

TRIVIA

Released in October 1995.

Gals Panic 3 introduced the scroll feature to the series. In the previous two games the image was surrounded by a border, but starting with Gals Panic 3 the image continues beyond the view port. Once a set percentage of the image is revealed the view port will scroll along with the player's cursor. This is a feature that will continue throughout the rest of the series.

Unlike all other games in the series, Gals Panic 3 only features photographed models.

This game was refused classification in Australia on August 9th 1996, after being submitted by the Victorian Police.
