Contra III The Alien Wars (SNES) Gameplay
It is the year 2636, the year the Notorious One gets even, with an incredible alien onslaught arranged to push its commandos to their ultimate abilities. Make your way through numerous levels on a high speed journey to remove this alien menace.
Check out the side scrolling action and the top down perspectives and backgrounds that do a very great job of engulfing you in 3-D sensation. Take out solar slime dogs like the Mutant Megasquitos and the Psycho Cyclers while you climb walls, swing down from girders and use ropes to achieve your goal.
The final boss, Mother Brain in Normal and Easy mode when destroyed will flash momentarily and fall to the ground and you escape. This is where the game ends. However, in Hard Mode the brain will take on new armor and chase after you.

Contra III The Alien Wars (SNES) ROM Download
Question : Is It Illegal To Download and Play a ROM of Contra III The Alien Wars ?
Answer : Yes it is illegal. We will not supply any links to download the Contra III The Alien Wars rom file as we want to keep this site legal. Nintendo have posted the following on there website “whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet” which makes it clear that downloading ROMS is completely illegal.
A lot of people say this is a grey area, Some say as long as you own the game on the SNES you can download and play the ROM as a backup to the physical media, this is not true. Nintendo see ROMS as a threat to date to the intellectual property rights of video game developers.
