When it comes to one on one fighting games, the very first name to come in mind would be Mortal Kombat. The highly acclaimed (and quite brutal) combat game has been around since almost two decades now and is still continuing to stride even further. With that said, NetherRealm Studios who recently launched the latest addition to the long running MK series titled Mortal Kombat X on next gen consoles and PC has finally brought the franchise on hand held devices for the very first time. Even though the mobile version of the game got released a couple of weeks ago for iOS devices, Android fans were anxiously waiting to get their hands on the much awaited game on their devices as well. Well guys the wait is finally over as the game is now available on Google Play as a free download.
Now before you guys start getting all excited and pumped up let us just remind you that the combat system in this game is similar to the one found in earlier releases such as Injustice and the highly acclaimed Marvel Contest of Champions and not like the traditional MK games that include a lot of button smashing . The actual fighting in the game revolves around mashing the screen to attack and using a vast array of swipe gestures. Visually, the game is absolutely stunning to say the least! Each character has been individually designed to perfection catered with all their special abilities and moves including X-Rays and some of the goriest looking fatalities ever seen in a Mortal Kombat game.
As mentioned earlier, the game is somewhat similar to Injustice: Gods Among Us with the actual characters based on a cards system that level up as you play more. With each additional victory, the player gets rewarded with either golden or silver Koins and Souls which can be used as currency in the game to purchase new moves and unlocking additional characters. The game also supports an online multi-player option that lets you play against other players in the all new Faction Wars Mode, or by summoning other players’ cards for use during your battles.
Mortal Kombat X for Android requires a minimum 2GB of RAM with at least 1.5GB of free space to run smoothly. The game is only available in selected countries for now, so if you can’t find it on the Play Store ,you can directly download it from the link below. Happy Kombating !!!
