MORTAL KOMBAT: A Fighting Game Review

Mortal Kombat Mobile is a two-dimensional fighting game in which you control characters from the Mortal Kombat franchise like Sub-Zero, Reptile, Johnny Cage, Rayden, Smoke or Kitana, to fight other characters with similar abilities .

The game is rather similar to that of the older console and PC version; although for obvious reasons the traditional controls have been replaced by an intuitive system where you have to slide your fingers across the screen to hit your opponent.

As you fight, your characters will gain experience and, gradually, you might even add new characters to your initial roster. In this way, this version has a collectible component in the form of characters and letters that must be unlocked.

Visually speaking, Mortal Kombat is an impressive game. The character models are as good as anything you’ve ever seen on console. This is especially worth mentioning for those famous Fatalities which are almost as spectacular on an Android device as they are on a console.

  • Plenty of meaningful content
  • Thorough tutorial to help newcomers
  • Character roster is packed with familiar faces


  • Unbalanced Tower Of Time modifiers make it a mostly frustrating experience

  • Campaign is a little on the short side

What Parents Need to Know

Mortal Kombat is the popular ultra-violent fighting game franchise’s mobile entry, which is available on iOS and Android smartphones.

Players assemble teams of three fighters and use a variety of hand-to-hand martial techniques, melee weapons, guns, and magical skills to combat opponents.

The battle is vicious and bloody, with plenty of gore on display, in keeping with the franchise’s characteristic flair.

Some characters and their variants’ outfits, particularly the female characters, are portrayed in a more sexualized manner and in revealing costumes.

Some characters and their variants also appear smoking cigars, drinking, etc. Parents should also be aware that Mortal Kombat heavily pushes players to spend real-world money for exclusive characters, equipment, and the like to help progress further in the game.
