Mortal Kombat: The Chosen One is a very cool fan made Mortal Kombat-based side scrolling beat-em-up, crafted in the OpenBOR engine that features Carolina (The Chosen One) and a roster of other playable characters from Mortal Kombat’s Liu Kang to the Killer Instinct’s Jago.
Featuring fully digitised character models, each with a wide array of special moves, Mortal Kombat: The Chosen One is a thoroughly enjoyable old-school beat-em-up experience. The current build features 7 playable characters (Carolina, Raiden, Kitana, Jago, Tusk, Liu Kang and Midas), but the full game will have a few unlockable characters too (including Batman).
The action takes place across seven levels, and includes one boss fight at the moment. It’s a fun game and a lot of work has clearly gone into the playable characters move-sets, with each one capable of a wide variety of spectacular special moves and finishers. Some of the characters could do with a little faster animation, but the Mortal Kombat characters in particular are a blast to play with.
Still early in development, Mortal Kombat: The Chosen One does have a few rough edges (and we’d love to see more variety in enemies), but they can easily be forgiven and it’s already WAY better than Mortal Kombat: Sub Zero Chronicles!
NOTE: Mortal Kombat: The Chosen One is played via the OpenBOR Engine, which comes with the download. Once extracted, simply move the ‘MK_The_Chosen_One_1.1.pak’ file into the correct Pak folder (‘OpenBOR_v3.0_Build_4153/WINDOWS/OpenBOR/Paks’ – If playing on Windows) then open the OpenBOR.exe. To enable a controller, just map the buttons in the options menu. Alt+Enter for Full Screen.
