Summary: Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc is the third major platform game installment in the Rayman series. It tells the story of how Rayman stops Andr an evil black lum from taking over the world with his army of sack-like ‘Hoodlum’ soldiers. The game has sarcastic self-referential undertones and pokes fun at the platforming video game genre. It was released for the Nintendo GameCube PlayStation 2 Xbox and PC in 2003 and for the Mac OS X in 2004. A remastered HD version of the game was released for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network on March 20 2012. 2D versions were developed for the Game Boy Advance Mobile and N-Gage. A follow up game Rayman Hoodlums’ Revenge was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2005. The intro features the song ‘Madder’ by Groove Armada. Rayman’s controls are similar to that of Rayman 2 The Great Escape albeit he is now limited to utilising long-ranged punches and kicks at some opportunities as opposed to throwing Energy Spheres. Instead Rayman can now find special ‘Laser Washing Powder’ cans containing one of five temporary power-ups. The Vortex allows Rayman to fire mini-tornadoes instead of punching the Heavy Metal Fist increases Rayman’s strength and allows him to break down certain doors the Lockjaw gives Rayman extendable claw weapons that can be used to latch onto and electrocute enemies or swing across gaps the Shock Rocket allows Rayman to fire a remote controlled missile and the Throttle Copter provides Rayman with a special helmet that allows him to fly vertically for a limited time.
