The trouble with most iPhone games is that they are single-player experiences. The iPad, with its bigger screen, lends itself to multiplayer enjoyment and that’s exactly what you get with Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 HD. That, buckets of blood, and loads of severed limbs.
Quite unlike the iPhone version, the iPad version of the game offers a two-player on the same device mode. You get two complete sets of controls (I’m thinking that JOYSTICK-IT kit could come in handy here) and a nice roster of violent kombatants at your disposal. The graphics look like they leave something to be desired, but this is two-player Mortal Kombat on the go! Multiplayer mode will also work with two devices connected via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
People who are familiar with my gaming background will know that I’m a fighting games geek. While I prefer the Street Fighter franchise, Mortal Kombat holds a special place in my heart too. Who can forget their first experience as Sub-Zero, tearing a guy’s head and spine right out of his freakin’ body?
Get over here! Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 HD for iPad is regularly $4.99 through the App Store, but is on now for just $1.[iTunes]
