The fight for control of the Earth continues in Mortal Kombat
- Faithful to the original version
- No help menu for special moves
This program was not a legal version of Mortal Kombat, and included another emulator application. You can download the Kega Fusion emulator here.
Along with Street Fighter, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is one of the all-time great fighting games. It was also probably the first 2D title to that succeeded in simulating a 3D experience. In the late 80s, the game seemed so realistic that people thought it was unsuitable for younger players. Looking at it now, surely you wouldn’t say it is ‘realistic’, but you can still say it’s really violent. The final attacks, called ‘fatality’ or ‘brutality,’ definitely back this up.
In the version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, you can choose between 24 characters, each with their own special moves. To configure the keys you’d like to use, go to the Options > Set Config > Controllers menu; at this point, choose '6btn Pad' in the Port1 line and click Define. Now press the keys you would like to use to jump, move right, left, punch and kick by following the directions you see at the bottom of the frame. Mortal Kombat will play just as you remember it.
If you are brave enough to face the bloody characters of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, give this faithful reproduction of the game a try and see how close you get to the cliff’s edge.
