(Rockman 3 - Dr. Wily no Saigo!?)

Contenders blast Rockman, in his search for energy Crystals, through a galaxy of mining stations controlled by ruthless robots. An amazing 21 different levels of rapid fire help Mega Man battle against these armies of metal maniacs to gain their super powers. But the rebellious robots won't give up without using every android-annihilator known to Mega Man. That's when players call on Rush, the wonder dogdroid, for special mechanisms that speed them past danger and assist in enemy melt-down. It's man vs. metal as players have more fun than humanly possible.




Rockman 3 was released on September 28, 1990 in Japan.

The subtitle of the game translates from Japanese as 'Dr. Wily's Last Moment!?'

It marks the official debut of Rush the Robodog, and Rockman's estranged brother Protoman (a.k.a. Blues). This is also the first game in the Rockman series in which Rockman is able to slide (Down+A).

• Slow motion : Hold Up on controller two.

• Freeze opponents : Hold Up+A on controller two.

• Super jump : Hold Right on controller two.

• Suggested opponent order : Magnet, Hard, Top, Shadow, Spark, Snake, Gemini, Needle, 'Spark', 'Shadow', 'Gemini', 'Needle'.

• Walk through pitfalls : Hold Right on controller two. This allows Mega Man to walk through or jump out of pitfalls without dying. It is especially helpful in the Dr. Wily Robot level. Note: When jumping out of the pitfall, the jump is twice as large as the super jump.

• Invincibility : Hold Right on controller two while jumping into a pitfall. Then intentionally get killed by an enemy while in the pitfall. Jump out of the pitfall when Mega Man's death sound is heard.
Mega Man will be invincible as long as an energy booster is not collected. Although the use of the regular gun will be lost, the spark shot or the needle will work just as well.
