Mortal Kombat 4 The first true 3D Mortal Kombat!
In this continuation of the series, 15 fighters battle each other. You are presented with five towers, each containing enemies to battle against. Once these enemies have been defeated you will become the champion.
The gameplay system of Mortal Kombat 4 is similar to that of the previous games; one of the most notable additions is the use of weapons and objects during fights. The storyline chronicles the attack from the corrupted Elder God Shinnok against his former comrades who trapped him in the Netherealm many years prior to the beginning of the series. The other 17 playable characters take part in the battle between good and evil, with the forces of light trying to stop Shinnok and the forces of darkness from conquering all the realms.
