* PlotHole: The third game offering an unusual degree of non-linearity for adventure games and multiple different solutions to puzzles is a noble effort, but the narrative doesn't manage to hold all its threads together with this. The game will bring up characters and events with the assumption that you encountered them earlier, when it is in fact possible to completely miss them.

** In the third game Malcolm has to convince pirates to take him back to Kyrandia by showing that he still has magic at his command. The only magic he can get his hands on is a small statue that can turn people into mice and back. Specifically, anthropomorphic mice of the same size the person used to be. While Malcolm himself finds this remarkably useless, the pirates themselves manage to use the same magic to take over the kingdom of Kyrandia.

** One method to escape Kyrandia is to, as Brandywine puts it, "Click two eels together and say, 'I want to go to the Isle of Cats.'" That advice is just slightly similar to "[[Film/TheWizardOfOz clicking heels together and saying, 'There's no place like home.']]"

The third game sets Malcolm, the BigBad of the first game, as the central character. He has finally been freed from his [[TakenForGranite statue prison]] and seeks to clear his name from the crime of killing King William, if only so that he can finally get some sleep.
