Scorpia of Computer Gaming World gave a negative review and summarized: \"Overall, in spite of the neat blight idea, Magic Candle III is a dull game. I had a hard time getting into it, and slogged on mainly to get it over with. We\'ve all been here before and there isn\'t anything really new or exciting. The game is unnecessarily lengthened by the constant need for money, and, overall, one is left with the feeling of doing things by rote rather than going off a grand adventure. It is all very depressing and rather a shame, as the first Magic Candle held much promise for the future - promise that has yet to be realized\".
Pelit called the game \"traditional, a bit old-fashioned, but full of interesting ideas\".
