About This Game
Gradius III is a scrolling arcade shooter game that was originally released for the Super Nintendo in 1991. The game puts you into the roll of Vic Viper, a starfighter that must combat against the Bacterion Empire. You must make your way through ten levels and battle against many evil foes. The Super Nintendo release was different from the original arcade version by offering decreased difficulty, an increase in armaments, and the ability to continue after losing all lives.
