Game Information

Welcome to 2636, the year the Notorious One gets even, with an unprecendented alien onsalught orchestrated to push 16-bit technology and its commandos to their ultimate reaches. Plunge through a molten hot massacre on a high speed voyage to the guts of the archenemy alien. Scope out the side and top perspectives and backgrounds that do a 360 to engulf you in 3-D sensation. Pick off solar slimedogs like the Mutant Megasquitos and the Psycho Cyclers while you scale over walls, swing from girders and ropes, hitch rides on a missile, whatever it takes. Sweat through six gut splitting stages, including the Battle of the Blazing Sky and the Mucho Grande Badlands. The graphics are so real the explosions will nearly knock you off your feet. And the Boss Enemies are so gigantic, your screen can hardly hold them. You'll need to wrap both hands around artillery powerful enough to make today's weapons look like squirt guns. The Contra legacy is alive and dangerous!

Additional Information

The Contra series continues with this 16-bit masterpiece for the Super NES. Much of the blastathon action is of the standard side-scrolling platform variety, but two of the six levels incorporate a surprisingly effective overhead view. Giant bosses, constant shooting action, the ability to detonate bombs, intense gameplay, huge explosions, rich graphics, death-defying acrobatics, and spectacular Mode 7 effects make Contra III: The Alien Wars one of the best platform shooters available for any system. The game could benefit from a few more levels, and slowdown occurs from time to time, but these problems can easily be overlooked in a game as enjoyable as this.
