CONTRA III: THE ALIEN WARS (NINTENDO SUPER SYSTEM)

Contra III is featured on the Nintendo Super Sytem. The Nintendo Super System is an arcade machine that emulates a select number of Super Nintendo games. Players can try out the games for a limited amount of time, having to deposit more money to allow more play time. That also means that this arcade version of Contra III is nothing more than a demo or trial mode of the full game.

Like most arcade games of its time, Contra III: The Alien Wars includes numerous DIP switches that can be set to various configurations to alter the gameplay. The switches set the following parameters:

Difficulty: Sets the difficulty of the game. Options include:
Normal
Difficult

Lives: The starting number of lives provided for the player. Options include:
2
3
4
5

Time Limit Per Level: Amount of time given to play each stage. Options include:
104 seconds
112 seconds
120 seconds
Unknown

Unknown: Currently Unknown. Options include:

Unknown: Same as above.

Slider controls are also present that customize various internal game settings, such as the display (aspect raio, brightness, etc.), audio and system speed.
