Mortal Kombat X is now available for Android and iOS devices, a game developed by writer Shawn Kittelsen, who’s also creating the comic version for DC Comics. Contrary to what you may be expecting, it’s not your typical Mortal Kombat fighting title, but rather a cross between a traditional fighting game and a deck-building game. According to the game’s description, Thunder God Raiden has seen visions of a great evil entering our world, and it’ll be up to collect the six ancient relics that can stop this force of evil. We’re going to keep quiet on the title for now, and leave you with some useful Mortal Kombat X cheats, tips and tricks to help you in your game.
1. Trigger Quick-Time Events
Fans of the classic titles may be accustomed to combo moves, but in this game, there aren’t any. Rather, there are quick-time events that can be triggered once your fighter’s special ability meter is full. It takes a bit of practice to trigger these events consistently – sometimes, you’ll be asked to swipe quickly toward a certain direction on your display, other times you’ll have to stop an icon from spinning.
2. Timing Is Everything
We’re still talking about the fighting aspect of Mortal Kombat X, and when it comes to dealing with your opponents, your timing will be very important. We recommend launching your offense once the enemy stops after a swing or two, or better yet, waiting a split second after that final swing to be sure your foe doesn’t have a third blow coming your way. Good timing is indeed paramount in Mortal Kombat X.
3. Refill Your Energy Meter, Here’s How
If you’re guessing Mortal Kombat X has a rather offbeat kind of premium currency, you’re right – souls are what you’ll be using to unlock new fighters, but if you want to make the most out of them, it would be a better idea to use souls to replenish your energy. You’ll earn souls over time as you play the game, so there’s no real need to pay real money for more.
4. Passive Abilities Matter More Than You Think
All of the fighters in this game have their own unique passive abilities, and you should take time to familiarize yourself with them when organizing your team. It’s best when the passive skills complement each other, as this could give you a bigger percentage increase in terms of your overall skills.
5. Create A Second And Third Team Of Kombatants
Having one team of fighters is fine, but how about creating a second or a third team? This is a great way to make the most of your resources, as you can field your second team while your first team is replenishing its energy. You can even field your third team, depending on abilities and energy levels of the other teams, and you won’t have to pay a single cent even if you end up playing thrice.
