Mega Man 3

The Doctor is in...

Mega Man, and its action-packed sequel, Mega Man 2, have together set new standards for both the Nintendo and action games in general. The graphically impressive scrolling adventures of Mega Man and his arch-nemesis Dr. Wily, have provided millions of gamers with new types of challenges to overcome and play techniques to master!

Fortunately for all of us, Mega Man has been called back to duty for a third mission! This explosive cap on the trilogy is everything a Mega Man fan would expect from the series and much, much more! There are new dangers, new Bosses and a new leader to take the place of the evil Dr. Wily. It appears he has finally learned his lessons - or has he? This is just one of the many twists to follow in Mega Man 3!

Besides new adversaries, Mega Man also has a new friend called Rush. This computerized canine takes on several forms throughout Mega Man's quest to help him get past impediments and overcome obstacles!

A new cast of crazy contraptions and even wilder worlds await Mega and his friends. He must overcome the likes of such strange characters as Magnet Man, Snake Man, Shadow Man, Top Man, Gemini Man, Needle Man and Hard Man. In addition to these awesome foes, Mega must also contend with some familiar trouble makers as he heads to Dr. Wily's old hideout and discovers the true identity of the once mad Doctom! Mega Man 3 is better than the original two games in more ways than one. Not only is the game longer and more complex, with more options available at every turn, but the graphic detail and music rival the best the NES has to offer! Only Mega Man can help save the world!

People say:


Mega Man 3 is a winner from beginning to end. Not only do you get the excitement of the old games, you get new options and more than enough to battle! Looks great and plays even better!


Mega Man 3 is better than the first two put together! — The storyline is familiar, but totally different, with new enemies to learn and overcome, not to men-tion a surprise ending! Great fun!


Mega Man's back and he's mega hot, with everything you've come to expect from a Mega Man game. You get big characters. Bosses to destroy and special powers to gain. One of my favorite of the year!


Here's a guy that just keeps getting better! Mega Man4s the hip-pest of the action characters and this sequel only reinforces his hero status! Fantastic gra-phics and play that can't be missed!

During play you can, on Controller 2, press U and A to cause the enemy bosses or other characters to freeze on the screen. You can't move left or right, but you can jump, so make sure you're facing the boss before you start blasting away at him.

Mega Man has returned! This time, he's on the GameBoy, in the third installment of the popular black and white series. Dr. Wily is again at large and this time he's captured an oil platform to drill into the Earth's crust, tapping its natural energy. Before Mega Man can face Wily, he must first pass eight Robot Masters. Mega Man 3 is a filled with enough hand-held action for any fan of the colossal adventure series!

People say:


Here's a marvelous GameBoy title that serves up all of the familiar play mechanics we've grown to love on the NES. This game packs in the most detail of any GB product I've ever seen. So much that, like T2, the eyes have problems digesting all the detail. Still a good game for long trips and a must for Mega Man fans.


Capcom has created a hear perfect copy of the NES version. The game plays the same, looks the same (without color of course) and almost sounds the same. This is easily one of the best GB action titles to come out in a long time. Great bosses and not a whole lot of screen blurring. Don't miss this outstanding cart!


I like MM3 as much as Bionic Commando. This cart is almost a carbon copy of the NES version. All 8 bosses are here as well as Mega Man's slide move and companion Rush. Power-ups and techniques are plentiful and the control is just right. The screen blurs quite a bit, but if you overlook the hardware it's a great game.


As the best GameBoy game for the past few months, Mega Man 3 has plenty to be proud of. The game itself has tons of levels for a GameBoy title, and several power-ups! With color, it would be awesome! Come on, Nintendo, give us color! The games are great, but they need vibrant color to make an impact!

Look! Up in the sky!! It's a bird!! It's a plane!... Uh... I think it's a robot.

Mega Man's Back!

That blue, metallic defender of justice, Mega Man, is back in action! Since we just couldn't wait any longer, here's a sneak peek at a preliminary version of Mega Man III!

This time around the formerly-evil Dr. Wily has come to his senses and rejoined Dr. Light to work for the good of mankind. Together they work to create the ultimate peace-keeping robot, "8."

Energy components to fuel this new robot are located on eight mining worlds. Unfortunately, the robotic work forces of these worlds have rebelled, making fuel gathering a pretty nasty chore. Did someone say 'This is a job for Mega Man?"

Mega Man's Best Friend

In this one, Mega Man has his faithful robodog, Rush, at his side. Rush is no mere metal canine: this dog's got talent! He can change into a jet sled, a submarine, or a special spring -- devices that Mega Man needs throughout the game.

Mega Baddies

Mega Man games have always featured a great gang of super villains, and Mega Man III is no exception! Here's a quick look at some of the nasties you'll have to tussle with: Magnet Man (A real attractive villain), Needle Man (Mega Man will get this guy's point for sure), Spark Man (A shocking villain), Snake Man (A slimey character), Top Man (He'll make Mega's head spin), Shadow Man (A Ninja nasty), Gemini Man (Double trouble) and Hard Man (A solid citizen).
