Mortal Kombat for Lynx...

Recommended Posts

No Kano, no sale.

 

Okay, I'm kidding.  This looks absolutely awesome.  I shouldn't say surprising us with a video game bloodbath makes for a terrific Christmas present, but, it does.  Thank you for this!

Will you finish the game?

I dont want to make new topic, so will reply here. We did Mortal Kombat for the Lynx (Silly Venture 2019 event) and tryed to have it all: all framesanimations (from arcade), decent colors, voice samples, digital FX, music, parallaxes, shadows.  I hope the result will make happy Lynx's fighting games fans.

 

We have to fix few bugs, add the blood (to have all arcade stuff) and add comlink support (the engine already can play 2 player mode but we dont have comlynx support prroggrammed yet and  sadly  two Lynxes in real  to test it.

 

Will post video tomorrow and the  .rom will be available december 24th (in two weeks)

Absolutely amazing work. Is this going to be the biggest ROM released for the Lynx so far? Your version looks like not only will it blow away the Game Gear version, but even give the Genesis version a run for its money...

Gotta love the Amiga copper-like color effects on the backgrounds. And also the fact that you got parallax scrolling going on. How many colors are being displayed in average?

24-40 colors on average: main scene - main palette, bottom floor - different palette, background gradients (the copper like you mentioned). depends what stage is displayed.

I suspected it has way more color than 16. Impressive feat.

Wow, that looks really awesome!
I'm looking forward to the 24th.
Thank you for giving yourself so much trouble.
I would also like to buy the game as a module!

Sooooooo where are people finding the ROM for this?

 

Side note:  I hope this gets a full cart release it will be a Day 1 purchase for me and I think any other Lynx enthusiasts!

Too bad the two sets of A and B buttons on the lynx can't be mapped to serve as 4 different buttons, that would be ideal for this game :)

yeah it would be perfect:)

 

We aim A+B+option key for block (block is in the game already) and tweak some moves to have similar feeling as arcade;

all staple moves are there: sweep, uppercut, hpunches, mpunches, roundkick, kick, knee (if close to enemy) etc

 

MK controls are good for Lynx in general - almost all are horizontal /vertical without qcfs / shoryukens shanigans 😆

@solo/ng did you think about making original characters and not using the MK title in case you run into legal issues? It would be cool to see an original fighting game on the Lynx and I guess you can reuse the same engine.

If need be I'd rather see it officially licensed for a small production run

It's always a problem if you should go for an already existing game or make something of your own, when thinking of a physical release. Obviously people like things they already know so it's probable to draw more attention. Zaku was/(is) really impressive for selling massive amounts for being a Lynx game and using original characters.

 

I've not thought much about why it is "everyone" (including me) wants to see games on the Lynx that we already can play on a hundred different systems and emulators. I think it might be that it's nice to see that your favorite system can pull off some favorite game, because you always "knew it could", and to play those games on your real favorite hardware. I used to dream of Sonic on the Lynx, and I've been thinking that Rainbow Islands would be fantastic for the Lynx. (It'd just be sooo much work trying to port big games like that, reading that not even 10% of gamers ever play through a game, that'd be like ten people on the Lynx).

But yeah then there's the licensing issues. From what I've read and followed over the years it seems very rare that these greedy companies give out small licenses. They could try to follow their time a little bit, don't they want to be popular?? Then if someone makes an unauthorized physical release of some old game THEN they sometimes seem to care and pounce 😓 Still there's both examples of unauthorized releases that haven't gotten into trouble and those that have gotten licenses. For example, I would guess at least Mappy and Halo have been released for the Atari 2600 with license?

Btw. didn't the Jaguar have some mortal kombat clone? Or even more than one?

Clone-ish games can be pretty hit and miss too. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Like I looove Zippy the porcupine on Atari 2600, but a lot of those kind of clones feel a bit wrong, like "ALMOST Sonic... yay..." :D

Halo 2600 was written by Ed Fries, former vice president of game publishing at Microsoft, who was involved in Microsoft's acquisition of Halo developers Bungie.

I guess it can halp when you come to licensing issues :D
