Torrente 3: The Protector is a game based on the Spanish movie featuring comedian/actor/director Santiago Segura's character, the clumsy detective Torrente. In this installment of the game Torrente is called to protect European Diplomat Giannina Ricci who is in Madrid to denounce certain irregularities of some of the countries businesses.
The game involves several different missions and levels as the player will personify Torrente, and try to become as like him as possible. This includes the aspect of ‘Torrentism’ in which the player will submerge him/herself into the character and gain ‘Torrentism’ as rude, crude, tasteless, tacky and even perverted as Torrente himself. In order to become Torrente, the player not only has to complete the overall mission of protecting the Euro-Diplomat, but also interact with the environment including going for a beer in Torrente´s favourite bar, visiting strip clubs, robbing cars and at the same time imposing the law and being a good example of a father to his son Pepito.
