Mortal Kombat Logo – Mortal Kombat (commonly abbreviated MK ) is a series of video games to fight created by Midway, characterized by realistic graphics digitized (what differentiated the game of his contemporaries who used hand-drawn graphics) and a brutal and bloody violence, including the famous Fatality.
The original game was developed as a reaction to Capcom and fighting game popular Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, with simpler controls and digitized graphics, players learned sequences filmed for the occasion. The original idea of Mortal Kombat was found to 1989 with the game content and history, but the project has resulted in the arcades in 1992, and later on other game systems Many have said that the graphic violence of the game was free, and was included only in order to produce the public outcry and controversy, by the same indirect advertising of the product. But although highly controversial, the mix of realism and violence propelled the game to a widespread and historic renown.
More than any other fighting games, Mortal Kombat was notorious for “restaining” characters, that is to say, the fact that there are characters which were indistinguishable by their (s) color (s). This was especially true for ninjas (Sub-Zero, Scorpion, … eight in total!). Although most popular characters were created by these “recolors” the fans are tired, and required more strategy with the fighters really unique (basic strokes were the same for each fighter, the first game Mortal Kombat 4). To correct this problem inherent in reduced capacity of old game systems (SNES , etc.) the developers have introduced a range of stroke and a unique design for each character from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, leading to greater strategic depth.
