Shao Kahn has been defeated! Earthrealm is saved, and Princess Kitana's homeworld of Edenia has been restored! Now Liu Kang, Raiden, and the other Earthrealm Warriors can finally live happily ever after.
The evil and fallen Elder God Shinnok has escaped from the pits of the hellish Netherrealm, thanks to his loyal servant, the sorceror Quan Chi, and an Edenian traitor known as Tanya. He has already conquered Edenia, and is now planning to wage war against the Elder Gods for banishing him. Raiden must now assemble Liu Kang and the other Earthrealm warriors in order to stop Shinnok and his minions before this war end up destroying the Earth AND the Heavens!
MK4's biggest conrtibution is that it's the first major entry in the Mortal Kombat series to be presented in 3D graphics. However, even though players can now sidestep during battle, the game still largely retains the 2D gameplay of its predecessors. The second biggest new feature of MK4 is the introduction of weapon-based kombat. It's limited though, as you need to perform a special command to pull a weapon out, and you drop the weapon once you're hit.
When you start the game, you choose between regular 1-on-1 Kombat, or 2-on-2 (which can now be done in single-player mode as well as with 2 players). There are fifteen playable characters in the game, plus two hidden characters. You select your character and choose one of five towers. Once again, the higher the tower, the more people you fight and the harder it is. Once you get to the top, you earn a rematch with Goro from MK1, then you face the evil Elder God Shinnok. Defeat him, and the game is won! Once again, in a 2-player VS game, you can enter secret codes on the VS screen to spice up the fight.
This PC version of the game adds some nice new treats, such as Team Battle, Endurance Mode, Tournament Mode, and even a Practice Mode that tells you the characters' special moves and fatalities! Speaking of fatalities, you can adjust the fatality commands to either be keyboard-friendly, or function like they do in the arcade. Graphics-wise, the game can be played in Software Rendering, Direct3D, or even 3dfx Glide if you have one of those cards. The sound and music come straight from the arcade version and sound excellent.
Even though it wasn't as memorable as the 2D Mortal Kombat games, MK4 is still a fun and worthy addition to the franchise. Not only was it the last game in the series to be designed for an arcade machine, it was also the last one to be ported to the PC until Mortal Kombat 9 Komplete Edition in 2013!
This is a ripped version of the game with no music. I recommend you get the full ISO from the ISO cellar.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special.

Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier.
