Mega Man 3: The Robots are Revolting
DOS - 1992
Description of Mega Man 3: The Robots are Revolting
Mega Man and Mega Man 3 are two first PC versions of CAPCOM's blockbuster Mega Man (Rockman in Asia) series of anime platform games. In one of their worst marketing mistakes, CAPCOM gave the task of converting its hit series to the PC to Hi-Tech Expressions, who botched the job quite badly with both games (for some curious reason, Mega Man 2 was never ported to the PC).
Instead of creating faithful reproductions, Hi-Tech reduced the excellent anime characters that NES fans have come to know and love to laughable animated blobs -- with Mega Man himself looking like a broken-doll version of Commander Keen ... a cabbage patch doll gone awry, so to speak. The graphics are dull, and even the innovative gameplay that lets Mega Man transform himself into different robot types can't save these two Mega Man games from mediocrity.
Overall, good examples of how to botch a blockbuster console license. Fortunately, CAPCOM finally realized their mistake years later and decided to develop Mega Man X and its sequels in-house. Check those games out instead, and leave these two Hi-Tech creations alone unless you have a lot of time to kill ;)

Julian: the game is working here on DOSbox, under Linux. It's no work of art, but both CGA and EGA options played OK. I set cycles to about 1000.
Jose: CTRL-F11 para ralentizar el juego, pruebe 1000 ciclos. DOSbox pausar: tecla ALT-PAUSE.

it's okay but nowhere as good as the nes version. i don't know why they called it mega man 3, it wasn't to keep track with the console versions as the nes version was released 2 years earlier. i think they just did it to make it look even better than the first dos game

This game had a game breaking bug in the final level.

I'm surprised High Tech Expressions made something this good considering all the bad games they made. Ok so Street Fighter II was very well done. Not a great version of Mega Man 3 and very buggy gameplay and horrendous controls even with a gamepad. Poor graphics considering this was the early 90's. But cool level designs almost make up for it.

I remember this game fondly. I played this game for years around the same time as my brother played airborne ranger. Missed this game.

Wait, was this legal back then?
Did these people just copy off of capcom or did they have permission?
