Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 Review

With its roster of outlandish psychopaths, gallons of blood and gore and OTT, incredibly graphic "fatalities", Mortal Kombat was, in part, responsible for the creation of the ERSB and remains the undisputed king of 90s video game nasties.

Having already made a splash on most every other gaming platform, from Wii to PSP, Eko Software now team up with BulkyPix to bring their fun Lemmings style puzzler, Aqua Panic, to iDevices.
