Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is a 8-bit demake of Mortal Kombat 3 for the Game Boy Color by PSC. MK3 has been seen for plenty platforms and systems, but never for the GBC until now! Actually until now is also not 100% correct as the game is currently still in private Beta. The project is non commercial and non profit. There is no release yet, but plenty of pictures and videos.
For those of you who are deeper into Game Boy Color:
– It’s dual-compatible
– Runs around 60 fps
– Supports Super GB 2-player
– Many of the animations have the same number of frames as the Arcade version!
– Uses virtually all of the known hardware tricks: 40+ sprites, LYC parallax scrolling, animated backgrounds, flicker effects, background tiles as “sprites” (this is how Scorpion’s spear and SubZero’s ice blast don’t flicker, as well as the large blood splash), multiple OAM buffers, etc.
Thanks to PSC himself the head ups via e-mail!
