Postman Pat 3: To the Rescue (but commonly referred to as just Postman Pat 3) is an action game that got released by Alternative Software on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and Commodore Amiga in 1992; it is, yet again, based on that Woodland Animations television series of that same name (which aired from September to December 1981, but gained two 10th-Anniversary specials in 1991), and despite the number in its name, it is the fourth (and the final original) title in the Postman Pat series. There would not be another Postman Pat game until the release of Postman Pat and the Greendale Rocket, the first one based on the new series, on the Game Boy Advance in 2007.
