by Rainier on Oct. 22, 2002 @ 1:15 a.m. PDT

Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc, takes our hero Rayman on an epic journey through beautiful living worlds filled with fabulous flora and fauna (that's plants and animals to you and me). Featuring the most diverse worlds you've ever seen in a platform game, from the icy cliffs of the Summit of Fury, to the bitter wasteland Moor of Mad Spirits, it'll take all of your skills to traverse the different environments. Check the new screens showing off some of the environments.

Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc starts with a single lum gone bad, transforming all of the lums in the universe dark. The resulting chaos threatens the lives of all of the creatures in Rayman's world, and the very balance of good versus evil. Globox's untimely swallowing of The Dark Lum Lord, makes for an interesting first quest as Rayman must locate three Teensie doctors to cure our friend Globox. The first leg of the adventure pulls Rayman through lush forests, dark and eerie swamplands and a scorching desert on his way to the ultimate confrontation with The Dark Lum Lord.

Check out below for descriptions of some of the worlds you'll travel through in this groundbreaking, immersive, cartoon fantasy, action, platforming game.

Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc Worlds:

Fairy Council : It all starts here. This mystical forest kingdom is home to the Heart of the World, and the Hoodlums can't wait to get their grubby mitts on it. Time for Rayman to start cleaning up this neighborhood.


The Umber Swamp: This uncharted marshland lies in the nether-realms of Rayman's world. It's home to a slew of fiendish flora and fauna - not to mention anti-social witches and egomaniacal musketeers.


Moor of Mad Spirits : Scarred by cruel winds and crushing storms, this bitter wasteland doesn't take kindly to visitors, especially adventuring types like Rayman. More than one tale has been whispered about a phantom race of creatures imprisoned within this haunted Moor.


Hoodlum Meddleworks : Constructed from spare parts, bits of machinery, and plentyof Hoodlum elbow grease, the Hoodlum Meddleworks is the production center for all Hoodlum munitions. It's also where the Hoodlums covet their treasured Plum Juice recipe.


Forest of Clear Leaves : Once it was bustling with life. Now, this lush woodland is overrunwith hordes of no-good Hoodlums. They've built up towers, bunkers, and other obstacles to make Rayman's trip here anything but a walk in the park.
