Mega Man 3
Capcom - 1990
Genre: Platformer, Character Shooter
Mega Man is a platform shooter with a twist; when Mega Man defeats his enemies he gains their powers. With this in mind you are sent out to defeat a collection of Master crooks each with a special power and an appropriate name to go with it e.g Sparkman, Snakeman, Needleman.
This little piece of Capcom genius has kept gamers happy for years but he never really made the transition into the 3D world and despite being Capcom’s mascot, our little blue hero has all but disappeared of late. I think it’s time we brought Mega Man back.
