 Despite containing an optimised CD32 version, the GLOOM 3 CD won't boot on a basic CD32 (due to the absence of the 'CD32.TM' trademark file). However, the game can be executed from a CLI/shell if you attach a keyboard to the CD32 and 'boot with no startup-sequence' from the early startup menu (hold down the red and blue buttons on a joypad OR both buttons on a mouse plugged into joy port 2).
According to the game manual, GLOOM 3 will work on a basic CD32, but without at least an SX1 and extra hardware it may seem slightly sluggish unless players use low pixel rates together with a small screenmode.
 GLOOM 3 supports the following features:
- 68020/030/040/060 CPU or Akiko (CD32 only) optimised versions
- Null/serial modem play
- Comprehensive rendered game intro with full speech
- Quit back to WB option
- Keyboard/joystick/joypad control
- i-Glasses (for virtual reality 3D gameplay)
- Window play (256 colours with AGA or gfx card only)
- 2 player co-operative or combative gameplay
- 10 NEW horrific zombie enemies
- 50 NEW fast-paced, gory levels
- 30 NEW scary 2 player combat levels with zombies!
 GLOOM 3 manual, including the background story and specs, is contained on the game CD (see HERE).
 GLOOM 3 utilises the same basic game engine of its predecessor GLOOM DELUXE, but uses enhanced chunky-to-planar (c2p) routines.

GLOOM 3 (full release) was also included on Aminet CD 30, Aminet Set 8 and Amiga Future 75 (cover CD).
 GLOOM 3 V1.3 demo (including 5 levels) is available on Aminet HERE (dir: game/demo/Gloom3demo.lha).
 GLOOM 3 enthusiasts can download various patches and other goodies from Aminet:
(a) GLOOM 3 Official Patch V0.2 fixes crashes that may occur in quitting back to WB and also offers some troubleshooting tips on getting the game/demo to work on particular Amiga set-ups (dir: game/patch/Gloom3fix.lha).
(b) GLOOM 3 AGA Patch for window play on machines that don't use gfx cards (dir: game/patch/G3WindowPatch.lha).
(c) GLOOM 3 Level Selector/Cheater that gives players a choice of levels and more (dir: game/patch/Gloom3Cheat.lha).
(d) GLOOM 3 (unreleased gfx & sound) that weren't good enough for inclusion in the game (dir: game/patch/Gloom3rejects.lha).
 The planned optimised PPC version of GLOOM 3 mentioned in the game manual was never released. Neither was the promised sequel GLOOM 3: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT, although a slideshow demo is available on Aminet HERE (dir: game/demo/G3DCpreview.lha).
