Police Quest 3: The Kindred is the third instalment of the popular adventure game Police Quest. It was produced by Jim Walls and published by Sierra On-Line in 1991.

Unlike the previous two games Police Quest 3 uses a point and click interface. You’ll be able to use the mouse to interact with objects in the environment and in your inventory. The driving interface has been simplified, although you’ll still need to manually drive from location to location. There’s a map below which shows you the layout of Lytton.

Sonny and Marie have been married and Sonny has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant. You’ll have to give briefings to the police officers as well as hit the streets for regular patrols. The walkthrough below includes a full run down of how to complete Police Quest 3: The Kindred.
