Gameplay and Features Edit

Principal gameplay involves one-on-one 3D style fighting. Mortal Kombat uses a single two-dimensional fighting plane (at 60 frames per second),[6][7] although characters are rendered in three-dimensional fashion,[8] intended to give depth and range to portrayals of various projectiles.[9] Unlike previous Mortal Kombat games, four buttons on the game controller represent attacks and are each linked to a corresponding limb. In addition, each fighter has three different variations, each featuring a different set of moves they can use during the fight: for example, the character Scorpion features a Ninjutsu variation which gives him specific moves utilizing dual swords, a Hellfire variation which incorporates fiery special moves, and an Inferno variation which allows him to summon hellspawn minions to aid him in the fight.[12]

A new feature is the "super meter", which can be charged by various actions during battle such as performing special moves, getting blocked by the opponent, or getting hit by them.[9] The super meter can be charged to three levels, each of them enabling a different action to be performed. At the first level, it can be used to deliver an enhanced version of one of the character's special attacks; two levels can be used to interrupt a combo attack, and the full three levels allow for the delivery of a special attack called an "X-ray move". The X-ray move unleashes a series of attacks during which the game provides an internal view of the character being attacked, which shows their bones and organs being broken or ruptured. The energy meter, first introduced in Mortal Kombat at the NetherRealm Studios, allows players to perform techniques such as "X-Ray" special moves, fighters are able to interact with the environment, using parts of the scenery to reposition themselves or using available objects as weapons.

Extra features include a story mode during which the player plays as multiple characters,[11] a Fatality training mode (allowing players to practice executing finishing moves),[12] the Challenge Tower, tag team fighting, and an online mode. The Challenge Tower mode is a single-player option that includes 300 specific challenges of various difficulties providing currency rewards upon completion; players have the option of using in-game currency to bypass other difficult challenges, completing them later.[9][12] Among the various challenges are "Test Your Might" (rapidly pressing buttons and using specific timing to destroy blocks of varying difficulty), "Test Your Sight" (following an object hidden under a cup or skull and revealing the object after a shuffle), "Test Your Strike" (destroying a specific block in a stack) and "Test Your Luck" (fighting under certain conditions, such as no jumping[12]). The four-player tag-team feature is an original feature, allowing two players to play together.[13] During tag gameplay, two new types of attacks become available. The first of them is the "tag assist" attack, in which the off-screen character temporarily jumps in and performs certain attacks during the active character's combo. The other is the "tag kombo", in which the active character performs a combo that is finished by the off-screen character as they enter the fight.[9] This combines with most martial arts techniques. 

The online mode includes a "King of the Hill" option, where up to eight players can act as spectators and play the winner of a fight. Spectators may also rate the fights and use the "forum" to determine how to perform various combos or moves observed during a fight.[11] A single-use online pass is also included with the game which is mandatory to access the online components. Online passes are also available.[14] As Utlimate Mortal Kombat arrived for the new version of original game, new improved graphics and upgrade your weapons and more, included Konquest, used RPG at adventure above for Mortal Kombat series. Another new feature is the Fatality Practice Mode, where the button combinations for the Fatality are shown above, and a green square on the ground indicates the correct distance for the Fatality to work. If the player moves away from the square, it turns red, indicating that the Fatality will not be executed.

In addition to the usual Fatalities, Mortal Kombat features two new types of finishing moves: Quitality, which instantly kills the player's character if they quit during a multiplayer match;[14] and Faction Kills, two finishing moves given to each character based on the selection of one of the game's five factions (Black Dragon, Brotherhood of Shadow, Lin Kuei, Special Forces, and White Lotus). Brutality finishing moves make a comeback, although different from the ones featured in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Brutalities now take the form of enhanced versions of certain moves that are triggered when said move is used as the final blow to win the final round in a fight, provided certain conditions are met. In addition, the game features stage Brutalities, which are triggered when certain environment interactions are used to finish the opponent. Additionally, stage Fatalities were reinstated, being available in each of the game's arenas.
