On the Subject of Mortal Kombat

Test your might!

The module consists of two screens and a gamepad. The larger screen shows your character, the smaller shows your opponent.

To disarm the module, you must perform three attacks and a fatality. Use the tables below to determine your character's attacks and the order in which they should be performed. Fatalities should not be performed until three successful attacks have been carried out. To determine the fatality, start at the top of the list and use the first one where the rule applies.

Entering the incorrect button combination during the initial three attacks will cause a strike and reset the successful attacks to 0. It may also reset your opponent's character. Entering the incorrect button combination during the fatality stage will cause a strike but will not reset your previous attacks or your opponent's character.
