In November 1995, Midway developed and released a 2D fighting game on Super Nintendo, called Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. It is considered an upgraded version of Mortal Kombat 3 with many improvements. A lot of new features have been added including 10 new characters, adding new arenas, balancing the power between characters, changing move-set, and 2 new game modes. Following that, the developer has also released a special version of the game called Mortal Kombat Trilogy for the Nintendo 64.
Basically, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is a classic horizontal screen fighting game. The player chooses a character from the game’s collection, then joins the battle in different game modes. Matches in the 1vs1 format. Each player controls their character to defend or attack their opponent until one side’s health bar reaches zero. Each match is limited to 1 minute 30 seconds, if the time expires without the opponent being knocked out, the game will be based on the remaining health bar to decide the winner.
The control mechanism of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is quite simple. It is typical of a fighting game on the console. Players use the Joystick to navigate the character to move, the other side is 4 keys to punch high, punch low, kick high and kick low. By combining the action and navigation keys, you can create combos. They are special attacks that each character has its own character.
The game has 3 different game modes for you to try out, including:
- Traditional mode: Available in all versions of the game. Players participate in 1vs1 matches.
- 2vs2 mode: This is a group match. Each side consists of 2 players.
- Tournament: This fun mode allows 8 players to join a tournament to find the champion.
