“Bad Ice Cream 3” is an action puzzle game that follows the adventures of a pile of ice cream as it attempts to collect fruit while avoiding enemies. The game is free to play on arcade websites such as Nitrome.com.
In “Bad Ice Cream 3,” players must help the on-screen character navigate different stages using the computer keyboard. Players control the ice cream character using the arrow or W,A, S and D keys. The goal of each stage is to collect all of the fruit as quickly as possible without running into enemies. Some of the fruits that the gamer must collect to move on include lemons, oranges, watermelon and bananas.
At the end of every stage, players receive a score. Every piece of fruit that they pick up increases their overall scores. They have two minutes to complete each stage. The faster that they complete the stage, the higher that their scores are. If they are unable to beat the stage within the time limit, they have to start the game over.
Players cannot defeat enemies in this game, but pressing the space bar allows them to make ice to block enemy paths. They can use the same button to break ice blocks that are in their way. Sometimes fruit appears inside the ice blocks.
