Let’s say, theoretically, if Mortal Kombat went back in time to the days of River Raid, Adventure and Pitfall, then the result of this DeLorean-esque trip would probably look something like THIS, right? Also yes, that IS Scorpion up there; I’m at least 95% sure should I squint hard enough see how the yellow-and-black bits. Anyway, this is old-school Atari 2600-style blocky graphics attempting to evoke the stype of the gory fighting game franchise in Mortal Kombat: Netherrealm Journey, which has been floating around the good ol’ interwebz for a while now, however I’ve just stumbled on it a couple of days ago while surfing the Information Superhighway and winding up at the Library of Atari YouTube channel.
This homebrew game seems to be the work of AtariAge forum member Facemeat, who describes the project as such:
It is a platformer somewhat akin to Pitfall, and it’s set in the Mortal Kombat universe. You play as Scorpion, who has been defeated in mortal kombat and banished to the Netherrealm. Your goal is to traverse its treacherous depths and find the portal that leads back to Earthrealm.
If you have the urge to test your might and play Mortal Kombat: Netherrealm Journey, you’ll need to use the Stella Atari 2600 emulator, THEN you can download the game here. MORRRTALLLL KOMBAAAAAAATTTT!!!!!
