Mortal Kombat: Netherrealm Journey (Platformer)

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I'm back with another game, and this one is my largest thus far. It is a platformer somewhat akin to Pitfall, and it's set in the Mortal Kombat universe. You play as Scorpion, who has been defeated in mortal kombat and banished to the Netherrealm. Your goal is to traverse its treacherous depths and find the portal that leads back to Earthrealm.

The controls are as follows:

Left - Move Left

Right - Move Right

Up - Jump

Down - Release from Rope (only used when holding onto rope)

Fire - Advance past title screen

Reset - Reboot game

And, because no Mortal Kombat game would be complete without cheat kodes:

Play as Sub-Zero - At the title screen press: Up, Down, Left, Right, Fire

Play as Reptile - At the title screen press: Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Fire

Play as Ermac - At the title screen press: Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Fire

Play as Rain - At the title screen press: Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Fire

Play as Smoke - At the title screen press: Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Down, Fire

Play as Noob - At the title screen press: Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Down, Up, Fire

After about a 2 second pause on the fatality screen, the player should be able to also press the fire button to start over.

Looks like you could use pfheights to make the Mortal Combat logo look a bit more detailed/fancy. I don't think pfheights alone would cost you anything :)

You could also try using the titlescreen kernel, if you take your time to figure it out. :)

I can see why someone wouldn't use the titlescreen kernel too. Personally, if I had a choice between more levels and monsters or a pretty startup screen, I know what I'd choose..

I like this a lot.

 

In my opinion, it needs:

 

- A score or timer

- Additional bad guys or obstacles (maybe the game can be divided into sections, and each section have a boss?)

 

Looking good so far, though :)

Fun game - nice use of an active playfield!

 

I would suggest using the fire button for jumping. A few lives would be nice too so you don't have to go all the way back to the beginning.

Well, that's an easy one. Here ya go!

Thanks for all the other suggestions, everyone! If I end up making a sequel (which is a good possibility, considering it would be easy with the groundwork I laid here), I'll definitely consider adding some of the other things mentioned. As for this game, it might be a bit difficult for me to add more...the way I set up the game, is that all of the text and fatality screens are in bank 2, and all of the main game is in bank 1. I only have a few bytes left in bank 1, so I'm not quite sure how I could add much more without removing elements of the game.

The cutest death scene EVER! It plays well and reminds me of Metroid. I like the Pitfall-like levels where there is always a little trap or platform. Coolness!

Hi Facemeat!

 

This is a blast! I really hope you do a sequel to this. Excellent work!

 

I really enjoyed the version where the button was used for jump. I felt much more control when playing like that.

 

Thank you for making this game!
