"You have been chosen to represent Earth in Mortal Kombat. Be warned. For although your souls are safe from Shao Kahn's evil: your lives are not. I can no longer interfere, as your Earth is now ruled by the Outworld gods." ...These are the words of Rayden The Shaolin Tournament for Martial Arts, better known as Mortal Kombat was, for countless ages, a noble institution that tested the metal of the very best Warriors. Years ago, the Tournament was corrupted by the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung who dared to take not only the lives of his opponents, but their very souls. Eventually, it became known that Shang Tsung was acting at the behest of his diabolical master Shao Kahn, Emperor of the Outworld, who planned to claim all the souls on earth. The Champions of Earth: Liu Kang, Kung Lao, their Ancestors and others have, so far, thwarted this plan. For centuries Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against the Outworld's Emperor, Shao Kahn. Frustrated by failed attempts to take Earth through Tournament battle, Kahn enacts a plan which began 10,000 years ago. During that time Shao Kahn had a Queen named Sindel and her early death was unexpected. Kahn's Shadow Priests, led by Shang Tsung, made it possible for Sindel's spirit to someday be reborn: not on the Outworld, but on the Earth Realm itself. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (6) This evil act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates and reclaim his Queen, thus enabling him to finally seize the Earth Realm. Upon breaching the portal into Earth, Shao Kahn slowly transforms the planet into a part of the Outworld. He strips the Earth of all human life-claiming every soul as his own. But there are souls which Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the Warriors chosen to represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat. The remaining humans are scattered throughout the planet. Shao Kahn sends an army of fierce Outworld Warriors to find and eliminate them. Some of Earth's Warriors survive the attacks. Most do not. The remaining few hold the one chance at saving all of human kind. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (7) OPTIONS If you select OPTIONS at the Main Menu you will go to the Options Screen. Here you will be able to modify a number of the game features by using the Control Pad. Use the Control Pad Up/Down and Left/Right to select the settings you want. MUSIC: MONO, STEREO SOUND FX: ON, OFF DIFFICULTY: VERY EASY, EASY, MEDIUM, HARD, VERY HARD HANDICAP: (Bar graph) CONTROL CONFIGURATION: (see next page) VIOLENCE CONTROL: (see next page) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (8) CONTROL CONFIGURATION: Highlight "CONTROL CONFIGURE" to customize your Controller. Use the Control Pad Up/Down to highlight the control you want to change and then press the button that corresponds with the change you desire. VIOLENCE CONTROL: If you scroll down to Violence Control and press an Action Button you will go to the Violence Control Screen where you may select Fatalities: ON or OFF and Blood: ON or OFF After you have finished with your options, press START to get back to the menu hierarchy. When you get to the Main Menu, press START and you will go directly to the Fighter Select Screen. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (9) KOMBAT MODES & FIGHTERS There are three different modes of Kombat on the MODE SELECT Screen: MORTAL KOMBAT, 4-PLAYER TWO-ON-TWO KOMBAT or 8-PLAYER TOURNAMENT KOMBAT. Any of these options will send you to the FIGHTER SELECT Screen, which has pictures of all the Warriors available to a player. The Mortal Kombat mode will allow you to choose one Fighter per player. The 4-Player mode will allow you to select two fighters per player. The 8-Player mode will allow you to select a total of 8 Fighters. Use the Control Pad to move the colored frame onto the Fighter(s) of your choice. Press Any Button except START to select your Fighter(s) and begin your Kombat! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (10) Once you have chosen your Fighter in the 1-Player Mortal Kombat mode, you will be transported to the CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY Screen. Press the Control Pad Left/Right to toggle between the columns: NOVICE, WARRIOR, MASTER or MASTER II. Press ANY Button to select. You will see a large column scrolling with the characters' faces. If a second player wishes to join the fight, he may do so at any time by pressing the START Button. This will return both players to the MODE SELECT Screen, where they can select the desired fighting mode. After selecting the mode, both players will be sent to the SELECT YOUR FIGHTER Screen, where they must choose Warriors again. If both players select the same Warrior, Player Two will be identified by a different color. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (11) FIGHTING SUMMARY The Tournament first tests a Warrior's fighting skill by pitting him against other Tournament challengers. In all Mortal Kombat battles, meters in the upper part of the screen measure the health of each Warrior. Keep your eye on them! The meters begin each round indicating the Warrior's health is at 100%, but they are reduced with each blow taken. The amount of the reduction depends both on the type of hit and whether or not it was blocked. When a Warrior's health meter runs out, he/she is knocked out and the round goes to the opponent. If time is up before either Kombatant is knocked out, the Warrior with fewer injuries is declared the victor. The first Warrior to win two rounds takes the match and moves on to the next opponent. Also pay attention to the Run Meters. The Run Meter allows you to perform combos and run toward your opponent. But they are "time sensitive". You can only activate the Run Function (or Combo Function) while the meter is green. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (12) BASIC MOVES Each kontestant invited to the Tournament has spent years in practice and meditation to perfect his/her martial arts skills. Before challenging these Warriors in Kombat, you too, should practice the martial arts by meditating on these lessons. The best way to begin your training is with the fundamental moves: Kicks, Punches, Crouches, Jumps and Blocks. These moves may seem trivial compared to powerful and acrobatic moves like the Flying Kick. However, knowing how to stop, avoid or counteract a Flying Kick can be far more useful than knowing how to land one. These fundamental moves are the foundations for both a strong defense and a potent offense. The R Button (RUN) is especially powerful. No longer can a foe hide by backing off. To Run, hold the R Button while pressing Forward on the Control Pad. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (13) SPECIAL MOVES All of the Mortal Kombat Warriors possess expert fighting skills. In that respect, they are equal to thousands of other Warriors around the universe. What raises them above their peers are the special moves which they have created and perfected. In order to become a superior Warrior, skilled enough to win the title of Grand Champion, you too must learn these moves. These moves, whether Special Kicks or Elemental Bolts, make the Mortal Kombat Warriors the fiercest and most ferocious Kombatants to be found. Mastering their special moves will make you the same. KLOSE QUARTERS Additional moves used during close-in Kombat situations are the Knee and the Throw. They are highly effective and do not require full limb extension, which is impossible in close quarters. Although these moves are potent, they can only be used when you are directly adjacent to an opponent. CHECK IT OUT: Pressing the Attack Buttons in a certain sequence will result in different "Kombos" for different characters. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (14) KROUCHING MOVES Defensively, the Crouching Moves allow one to escape from close proximity, avoid punches, aerial weapons and being thrown. Offensively, the uppercut, executed from the crouch is one of the most powerful weapons in a Warrior's offensive arsenal. To do the Crouching Moves, hold the Control Pad DOWN and simultaneously push X or A for a Crouching Kick. Hold the Control Pad DOWN and push Y for Uppercut. The Block (L Button) can always be used to defend against your opponent's moves. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (15) SPINNING MOVES The Spin is the key to such exotic moves as the Roundhouse Kick and the Foot Sweep. The Foot Sweep hits your opponent's ankles and knocks him on his butt. The Roundhouse is a Spinning Kick which nails your opponent in the face. To execute the Spin Moves, hold the Control Pad AWAY from your opponent while you press the Kick Buttons. AERIAL MOVES The final moves one should learn are the Aerial Moves: Flying Punches and Kicks. To execute them, either jump in place (Control Pad UP) OR towards (Control Pad UP+Fwd/Back) your opponent. Then press the Attack Buttons while in the air. However, unlike most attacks, Aerial Attacks must be timed properly in order to land blows, so keep your wits about you and watch your timing. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (16) SECRET KODES At the bottom of the VS BATTLE Screen you will see a row of six boxes with different Icons in them. Player 1 can change the symbols in the first three boxes by pressing his/her LOW PUNCH, LOW KICK and HIGH KICK (default Y, B, A) Buttons. 0 DRAGON 1 MK 2 YIN/YANG 3 3 4 QUESTION 5 LIGHTNING 6 GORO 7 RAYDEN 8 SHAO KHAN 9 SKULL Player 2 can do the same with the other three symbols. The six symbols represent secret codes which can have subtle or dramatic effects on game play. Each button causes the symbol in the corresponding box to change to the next icon in a predetermined order. If you hold up while pressing Y, B, or A, the order in which the Icons are cycled will be reversed. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (17) This is important stuff, so pay attention! Here's an example: pressing the Player 1 LOW PUNCH (default: Y Button) once will change the Dragon Icon in the first box into a "MK" symbol; pressing it a second time will change it to the third icon in the sequence (a Yin/Yang) and so on. Pressing a button more than nine times will cause the order of the Icons to start over. In other words, pressing a button that corresponds to a box with a Skull symbol will change the Skull back to the original Dragon Icon. Now, let's take a look at the code pictured above [see it?]: Skull, Shao Kahn, Rayden, MK, Yin/Yang, and 3. To enter this code, Player 1 presses. HIGH PUNCH (default: Y) Button nine times, LOW PUNCH (default: B) eight times and LOW KICK (default: A) seven times. Meanwhile, Player 2 presses Y one time, B twice and A three times. The match-up screen doesnÍt stay up for long, so you need to punch in the codes quickly! Some players find it easier to memorize the codes by referring to them in terms of the number of Button presses it takes to get the proper symbols in place. For example, the code that activates the "Throwing Disabled" feature "MK, Dragon, Dragon, MK, Dragon, Dragon" is easier to remember in numeric form as: 100-100. Example, both Player 1 and Player 2 press HIGH PUNCH (default Y) Button one time.
