Let’s face it – fighting games are traditionally best played on video game consoles and in arcades. They often don’t translate well to the world of mobile, and one would think that won’t be the case with Mortal Kombat X. Fortunately, that isn’t the case, as Mortal Kombat X for iPhone has proven to be a big hit since its release. A lot of the vintage elements from the console games are present on this mobile version, and while it’s definitely simpler than the Mortal Kombat games for console and arcade, it’s also sophisticated enough for fans of more advanced mobile titles. So with that being said, we’re here to bring you four Mortal Kombat X tips and tricks for the game’s mobile version.
- Be Familiar With The Controls – In the console and arcade versions of Mortal Kombat, you’d work with four buttons, combining the order in which you hit them, or hitting them in conjunction with the controller. In the mobile version, though, you’ll be working with swipes and taps. Swiping forward puts you on the attack, while holding two fingers on the display allows you to take a defensive stance.
- Don’t Go Overboard When Using The Premium Currency, Or Your Real Money – The in-game currency will allow you to buy Kombat Packs, which are packs of cards that contain upgrades for the members of your team. You can also use real money to buy packs of coins, er…Koins. For example, you can get a pack of 12 Koins for $1.99, or a pack of 600,000 for $49.99, and these packs will come with additional characters for your lineup of fighters.
- Get A Wbplay Account If You Play On Multiple Devices – Cloud syncing is one of Mortal Kombat X’s top features, and if you want to play the game on more than one device, there’s no other way to do it than by signing up for a WBPlay account via developer Warner Brothers.
- There Is No “I” In Team – It’s so easy to forget it at times, but Mortal Kombat X is centered on team battles. So don’t hesitate to swap characters that appear to be on the verge of getting killed, or seek the help of an ally if your side is losing the battle.
