Spy Fox 3: "Operation Ozone" is the third of three games in the Spy Fox series of games developed by Humongous Entertainment and marketed by Infogrames.

Plot[edit]

Poodles' aerosol can shaped space station

Poodles Galore, the queen of cosmetics, has blasted an enormous aerosol (hairspray) space station into orbit and set it off. The constant blast of aerosol will deplete the entire ozone layer within a matter of hours, leaving the planet at the mercy of the ravaging sun; she herself will benefit from this because her cosmetics production company markets sunscreen at an SPF level of 2001. It’s up to Spy Corps and their top agent, SpyFox.

This time around, the Mobile Command Center is located above the bowling alley, which SpyFox can enter using the correct juke box number. After disguising as one of Poodles' bowlers, SpyFox rescues the cosmetics expert Plato Pushpin who gives SpyFox a list of items needed to create the congeal pill to disarm Poodle's hairspray can. SpyFox heads to the hairspray can after procuring the vital ingredients. SpyFox can enter Poodle's moonbase to turn off the forcefield so Spy Corps can take her in. SpyFox must unlock the right fingernail design in order to turn it off. Afterwards, Monkey Penny can come right in and send Poodles away to jail.
