Mega Man 3: The Robots are Revolting is a DOS game released in USA in 1992 for PC. The game was officially licensed by Capcom USA to Hi-Tech and developed in association with Rozner Labs. Its predecessor is Mega Man for the PC, not having a Mega Man 2.

Story

MM3PC Castle

Wily's Castle.

"It's three times the thrills... three times the action... three times the fun. It's MEGA MAN 3!

Legions of once peaceful robots have been mysteriously transformed into a horde of humanity-hating berserk droids! Nobody is safe - least of all Mega Man. Armed with every android-annihilator ever invented, they're determined to reduce the super-powered cyborg into a heap of radioactive waste!

Can our hero outfight, outwit and "out-robot" the robots? Will Mega Man pulverize the powerful robot-maniacs? Or will he melt down?

It's all up to you, as you join the battle in Mega Man 3: THE ROBOTS ARE REVOLTING."[1]

Robot Masters

Many of the Robot Masters in this game have basic AI, and will simply jump in Mega Man's direction at varying distances, only shooting if they come into contact with a wall. Bit Man and Wave Man are the only two who do not do as such. Bit Man will stand on one end of the room for a while before shooting and running at Mega Man making tiles fall when he reaches the other side, and Wave Man will always shoot every three jumps.

All of them have 32 HP and take 8 units of damage from their main weakness; as such, they will each be killed by their weakness in 4 hits.

Trivia

  • This game was the second and last Mega Man game for DOS computers, but it was named "Mega Man 3". Strangely, there was no "Mega Man 2" for the PC. This may have been due to Hi-Tech (and Capcom) wanting to capitalize off of the success of Mega Man 3 on the NES.
  • This is one of the only Mega Man games in the US to keep its subtitle, "The Robots are Revolting," though not used anywhere other than in the back of the box description. The other game is Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge for the Gameboy.
  • This is the first of two Mega Man games to feature swimming for under water segments in Blade Man's, Wave Man's, and Shark Man's stages, the second being Mega Man 8 for use in the underground section of the Intro Stage and Aqua Man's stage.
  • This was the first Mega Man game in which Mega Man could not shoot through walls, a feature not seen again until Mega Man X5.
  • Five of the Robot Masters have the same name as other original characters: Oil Man, Wave Man, Blade Man, SharkMan.EXE, and TorchMan.EXE (FireMan.EXE's American anime name). Only Bit Man has yet to share a name with another character.
  • There are files in this game by the names of City, Tanker, Ocean, Rig, Refinery, Sewer, and Castle, representing the names of the stages for the bosses. City is Blade Man's water purification facility, Tanker is Wave Man's Oil Tanker, Ocean is Shark Man's stage, Rig is Bit Man's Oil Rig, Refinery is Oil Man's stage, Sewer is Torch Man's stage, and Castle is the final stage.
  • All six of the Robot Master's portraits were directly ripped from various games and edited to represent such bosses:
