Regions in which Roger may die

General MessagesEdit

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Garbage Freighter Edit

Go south from the game's starting screen and take the piece of metal lying against one of the ships. (Walk up to it and type TAKE METAL.) Edit

Roger: YEOW!

Roger hops around bleeding, then flops over and dies of exsanguation.

It's obvious that the metal was sharper than you. The resulting laceration turns you into a living fountain - at least for a few moments. Unfortunately for you, this show was your finale. Good luck in the afterlife.

One Way to Lower Your Blood Pressure
A brave but fatal attempt at arterial art.

Fail to escape the conveyor belt. Edit

Roger falls off the conveyer belt into the shredder.

Little box blocking the view: NOT A PRETTY SIGHT

Shredded like an Iran-Contra document, your many independent parts flutter to the bottom of the hopper. This is of little importance to you, what with your being dead and all.

It Slices, It Dices...
You're a less-than-choice cut, Wilco!

(if you did not stand up)

or

A Slimmer, Trimmer You!

a quick, but painful way to shed those extra inches.

(If you deliberately walk to the shredder)

Walk off the side of the rail or (Fall off the conveyor belt). Edit

Roger slips, flies into the air, then plummets to oblivion.

*SPLAT!*

You stepped off the rail! (You stepped off the conveyor!) You're dead again. Way to go. Haven't we taught you anything?

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Walk on the curved part of the rail at either end. Edit

Roger slips, flies into the air, then plummets to oblivion.

*SPLAT!*

You step on a part of the track which is extremely narrow and greasy. It obviously wasn't designed for human foot travel. It's a quick drop to the unforgiving surface below.

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Sit in the grabber too long right after getting it. Edit

Roger sits in the grabber, unaware of impending doom, as an armed robot is seen approaching through a window in the background.

ZOT!

You really bit the beam, Buckwheat. And there's that lack of regard for organics in action again. I guess they never heard of the warning shot concept around here. Anyway, you're dead.

Hole In One!
Hope you enjoy your new flow-through ventilation system.

Exit the grabber then walk off the side of the garbage chute entrance. Edit

Roger slips off the side of the chute, flies into the air, then plummets to oblivion.

*SPLAT!*

We haven't seen footwork like that since Gerald Ford! Unfortunately, your fall causes you to make contact with the non-moving deck below. The resulting impact forces the cancellation of your subscription to life.

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Walk off the bottom edge of the big robot head screen. Edit

Roger trips, goes flying into the air, and plummets to oblivion.

*SPLAT!*

Oh, gosh! You've stepped off a metallic escarpment and tumbled into the darkness. Twisted, jagged remnants of old vehicles reach out to slow your dark descent, cutting short your life in the process.

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Lean the ladder against the Aluminum Mallard, fall back down the garbage chute, and wait. Edit

You hear strange growls which send chills through your sleek, yet rugged, frame. What could it be?

Suddenly, two hideous figures rush from the shadows toward you!

Roger panics as two large rats charge him, then they brutally beat him up in a cloud of cartoony dust.

Oh, my! It appears that your being trapped has made you a prime target for rodent ruffians. What a mess!

Rats!
You may not be Purina Rat Chow, but you'll do!

Walk off the top of the Aluminum Mallard. (Walking off certain spots results in just sliding down the windshield unharmed.) Edit

Slid Down the Windshield Edit

Roger slides down the windshield, but lands safely on the floor.

You got lucky this time.

Fell Off Completely Edit

Roger falls off the ship to his inevitable doom.

We warned you to be careful. Did you listen? Nooooo! Good luck next time.

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Take off before turning on the radar. Edit

You feel a strong rumbling as the ship strains to loosen itself from the confines of the junk heap accumulated at its base. Finally, it begins to rise.

  • BOOM!*

The ship rises successfully, but collides with the top of the freighter. The resulting explosion sends a potpourri of flesh and metal fragments careening in all directions.

Learn to Drive That Thing!
Your radar is designed to avoid just such an occurrence.

Take off then turn off the engines without landing or firing the lasers. Edit

With the engines off, the ship falls abruptly to the floor. The resulting impact is too much for it and you.

Learn to Drive That Thing!
Your radar is designed to avoid just such an occurrence.

Shoot the Mallard's lasers before turning on the shields. Edit

The shot blasts a new orifice in the side of the junk freighter.

Roger's ship explodes out of the side of the freighter.

*BOOM!*

Unfortunately, your inadequately protected ship is struck and subsequently destroyed in the bottle neck of metallic objects striving to pass through the same relatively small opening.

Decompression Blues
Sudden Decompression Sucks!

Phleebhut Edit

Get too close to the scorpazoid. Edit

OH NO! A venomous scorpazoid. Watch out.

Roger gets stung by the scorpazoid. 

ZOT!

The Scorpazoid's stinger hits its mark sending electro-plasmatic venom into your system. Death comes quickly.

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Go too far south then walk in any direction other than north. Edit

A giant snake snares Roger with its tongue, then sucks him into its mouth.

Snake: BURP!

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Go too far north. Edit

  • BOOM!*

Roger gets struck by lightning and turns to ash.


Congratulations on Your Recent Death!

Step underneath the hanging pods. Edit

The hanging pod snares Roger, then sucks him up and eats him.

Walk into the gear hole inside the Mog Edit

The gear grinds Roger into a bloody pulp.


Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Get caught by Arnoid. Edit

Arnoid hoists up Roger, then twists and wrings him like a towel.

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Open the display case in front of the World O' Wonders. (OPEN CASE) Edit

A Slime Devil latches onto Roger, who flails about as it kills him.

They may be cute, but only an idiot would get near one! Looks like you won't be around to appreciate the other diverse wonders of this garden-spot of the universe.

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Kill Arnoid inside the Mog then walk into the shaft while the elevator is still at the bottom.. Edit

Roger steps into the shaft and plummets to oblivion.

Roger: OH, NOOOOOOO!

  • SPLAT!*

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Monolith Burger Edit

Walk into the left airlock twice. (The only way to die here) Edit

First Time Edit

Dangerous Guy: Out'a my airlock GEEK!

POW!

Roger is thrown out of the airlock.

CRASH!

The Dangerous Guy returns to his seat.

Second Time Edit

The Dangerous Guy goes back in to deal with Roger's repeated interloping.

Dangerous Guy: That's it for you BOZO!

POW!

Don't Trust Guys in Black Spacesuits
A pulselaser blast to the forehead is not your idea of fun. Fortunately, it didn't hit anything important.

Ortega Edit

Take too long to find thermal protection. Edit

My, my, this is one hot planet! Hopefully you'll last more than a few minutes.

Too late you realize that walking around unprotected on this planet is hazardous to your health. You feel your blood begin to boil.

Roger pulls on his collar, sweating, and then melts into a messy puddle.

You sizzle into oblivion. This planet wouldn't be so bad if you could keep cool somehow.

Sunbathing Not Recommended
It's so hot you could fry a Vorlian phlegmsnake egg.

Get spotted by the ScumSoft henchmen. Edit

Roger is spotted and blasted by a ScumSoft henchman, doomed to suffocate to death in a block of jello.

Way to go, ace! You blundered your way to within range of the pirates' jello gun. You suffocate in an impenetrable block of jello.

Just Like Mom Used to Make
As your life sputters to a close, you decide to cut down on desserts.

Fall off one of the ledges. Edit

Roger steps off the edge and plummets to oblivion.

Roger: OH, NOOOOOOO!

  • SPLAT!*

New, Improved Quick Tanning Method
You never did care for fondue. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Take a detonator then go back and walk across the wobbly bridge. Edit

Roger walks wobbly across the bridge, but this triggers the detonator and it explodes, turning Roger into a cloud of gore.

  • BOOM!*

The impact switch on the thermal detonator was triggered by your wobbling on the unstable rock. Your fragments are strewn over a wide area.

Be More Careful With Explosives
Didn't mom always tell you not to play with firecrackers?

Walk off the top of the generator or into the hole in the top of the generator. Edit

Roger slides/steps off the edge and plummets to oblivion.

Roger: OH, NOOOOOOO!

Deceleration Trauma
It wouldn't be so bad, except for the sudden stop at the end. Next time, don't get so close to the edge.

Take a second detonator then pole-vault the gap where the bridge was. Edit

Your brow furrows in grim determination as you prepare for a tremendous leap.

Roger vaults across the gap, but the detonater blows him into a cloud of gore upon landing.

*BOOM!*

The impact of your landing set off the thermal detonator. Your fragments are strewn over a wide area.

Be More Careful With Explosives
Didn't mom always tell you not to play with firecrackers?

Pestulon Edit

Enter ScumSoft while still visible or become invisible then fail to enter ScumSoft before becoming visible again or walk back up the stairs after getting past the guards. Edit

Roger gets blasted by a Jello Gun, doomed to die in a block of lime jello.

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Walk into the forcefield on either side of the ScumSoft entrance. Edit

Roger bumps into the force field and is electrocuted.

Oh. No! You've stepped into an electrical force field and as a result you are fried to a crackly crisp. YOU'RE TOAST DUDE!

Congratulations on Your Recent Death!
Thanks for playing Space Quest III. As usual, you've been a real hoot.

Enter the cubicle section while in regular clothes. Edit

Random Scumsoft Guy: Security... we have an intruder in accounting.

A security device appears and blasts Roger, encasing him in lime jello.

Just Like Mom Used to Make
As your life sputters to a close, you decide to cut down on desserts.

Walk by a full trash can without vaporizing it. Edit

Random Scumsoft Guy: Security... we have an intruder in accounting disguised as a janitor.

Uh-oh! You're in deep trouble now. These guys know that a real janitor would never bypass a full waste basket.

A security device appears and blasts Roger, encasing him in lime jello.

You Have Blown Your "Cover"
You have demonstrated a surprising lack of janitorial skill. Perhaps this would be an opportune time to "brush up" on your technique with Space Quest I and II.

Take the portrait then leave without replacing it. Edit

Miss the trash can too many times. Edit

Oops! You missed.

William Tell you are not.

Stand closer - it's shorter than you think.

You just put a nasty burn mark in the carpet.

You're starting to arouse suspicion with your marksmanship.

Elmo Pug: Security... I've got some butthead in my office posing as a janitor.

A security device appears and blasts Roger, encasing him in lime jello.

Walk off the ledge where the Two Guys are being held. Edit

Roger trips off the edge and plummets to oblivion.

You Have Taken the Big Plunge
That's one small step for man... One giant leap for janitor-kind.

Lose in the Nukem Dukem Robots arena. Edit

Well, it looks like you've depleted your power. The last thing you see is your blood slowly spreading across the arena floor.

Down For the Count
Better hang out at the gym more often.

Fail to put the correct shield up during the space duel. Edit

Having the correct shield up could have prevented this! The final shot shreds the side of your ship. In the sudden vacuum, your body fluids expand beyond the capacity of your tissues. Your desiccated body will drift forever, a grim testament to your blundering stupidity.

Decompression Blues
Sudden Decompression Sucks!

Deplete the shields before the duel is over by leaving them up too long. Edit

With your shield depleted, the final hit shreds the side of your ship. In the sudden vacuum, your body fluids expand beyond the capacity of your tissues. Your desiccated body will drift forever, a grim testament to your blundering stupidity.

Decompression Blues
Sudden Decompression Sucks!
