Mortal Kombat (GG)
- This page is for the Sega Game Gear version. For other games in the series, see Mortal Kombat.
Mortal Kombat is an official demake-port of the famous bloody fighting game for the Sega handheld, the Game Gear and the larger Master System being developed by Midway Games and published by Arena Entertainment and Acclaim for the American, European and Japanese markets in 1993 in a distributive manner.
This port is inferior to the Orignal Arcade, as it is because the hardware is inferior and the graphics were also adapted by matching the gameplay with a low speed and clunky framerate on the handheld, this would be very inferior technically to Game Boy, but this would go very wrong than Game Gear, although it is in color compared to the grays on GB.
This is based on the Sega Genesis version, with the feature that the handheld screen is very small and that in color (an average advantage over Game Boy) this was not distributed in Brazil, only the Master System version.
These versions respect everything faithful to the arcade version, although they had to make many changes in mechanics and graphics, which suffered radical changes.
Its reception was somewhat acceptable although it was seen as having technical defects but it was a better adaptation than the Game Boy (it would be repeated until the second title).
MusicAllister Brimble is the original author of the Chiptune music adapted for these two consoles that were technically inferior in features, were used as the basis of Genesis to later adapt it to the console.
Keith Burkhill was the arranger of these versions as the programmer, although there are two tracks that have no use in the game and only 6 tracks were made for the game, the Master System version would still be worked on.
This would be in charge of the development of Arena Entertainment, which only used 8 tracks for the entire game, although it did not justify that it did only this as permanent music.
