Contra III The Alien Wars or Super Probotector - The Alien Rebels , as it was called in Europe, was and still is probably the best 2D Shooter for SNES ever. Very strikingly is the high difficulty level which makes it almost possible to play on the highest level. Similar to Battletoads, Contra III can score with its diversified level design. Not any mission is just running from the left to the right to the boss but there are also mission on a bike or hanging at a chopper.
Two scenes have been altered. Except for that, the intro of the European Version equals the US intro.
Altered Title Screen
Due to the different European title, the title needed to be altered.
Modified Ingame Characters
But only the intro has been censored but also the soldiers. In the European Version, they've been replaced by robot aliens.
(screens are enhanced)
Replaced Images of the Mission
The images after accomplishing the mission have been replaced as well.
Having completed the game on the highest difficulty level, an epilog follows after the last boss fight. It's been altered in the European which means some lines have been modified, soldiers have become robots or they've simply been removed from the image.
Modified Score Screen
Also sth. exclusive after finishing the game on the highest difficulty level: a score screen pops up. In the US Version, the soldiers are wearing their formal military uniform while the head of a robot pops up in the European Version.
