Mortal Kombat was produced by Midway Games in 1992. A player versus opponent fighting game with digitized character and background graphics. The game was quite controversial when it was released due to the amount of blood and gore it showed during competition. This title also started the infamous “Fatality” trend where the player could perform a special combination of joystick moves and button presses that would violently kill an opponent at the end of a match.
Players choose one of the following fighters such as: Johnny Cage, Lui Kang, Sonya Blade, Kano, Raiden, Sub Zero, or Scorpion. They fight in a random realm against a human player or the computer. Another human player may jump into a player’s game during competition against the computer.
Use a series of special moves, including projectiles, to defeat your opponent twice in three rounds of fighting. After defeating your opponent, the fight emcee announces “Finish Him” and you have a couple of seconds to perform a special sequence of joystick positions and button combinations to have your character perform a fatality. Story lines are given for beating Shang Tsung.
