Mega Man returns for his largest adventure to date in Mega Man 3. The surprisingly resilient Dr. Wily has concocted yet another plan for world domination: tricking Mega Man's creator, Dr. Light, into giving him the plans needed to build an indestructible robot. Mega Man must now battle eight new mechanical minions before confronting Dr. Wily's latest creation. As with the two previous games in Capcom's platform shooter series, you are free to tackle the eight initial stages in any order.
Gameplay in each side-scrolling stage once again involves fighting your way to the boss, defeating it, and acquiring its signature weapon for use on subsequent stages. In addition to jumping and shooting, the Blue Bomber can now perform a slide maneuver. He can also call on a new robotic canine sidekick named Rush. This powerful pooch can switch into the equivalent of a springboard, submarine, or helicopter to help you clear each area. Complete all eight stages to reveal an additional four levels featuring the android adversaries from Mega Man 2. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
