Some improvements

Reviewed By: ultimateman on 22 Nov 2020

I like much of what was done with the color in this hack. Many backgrounds, especially the Wasteland, are improved (though I’m not a fan of the new colors on the Deadpool stage.) I’m excited to see a hack for this game as it’s my favorite MK of all time and the 32X port is excellent. I’m not a big fan of the music changes, as you end up hearing the same music in both the Kombat Tomb and The Tower with only one stage in between. That same track plays against Kintaro and Shao Kahn, so it gets old fast. Also, the end-of-round music on Goro’s Lair doesn’t match the new music track for that stage.

I’d love to see even more color corrections, as projectiles such as those from Baraka and Jax are still incorrect compared to the arcade. Even better would be gameplay tweaks, such as making Scorpion’s teleport punch travel farther so it actually combos again and making Jax able to follow up his jump kick with his air backbreaker on a grounded opponent like in the arcade.

Overall a good start to what I really hope is the beginning of perfecting an already great 32X port.
