Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Achievements


Finish Mortal Kombat  

Select Mortal Kombat from the main menu and fight your way up the ladder until you've defeated all kombatants. Shang Tsung is the final boss.

One of the easiest ways to win is to keep jumping back and kicking in the air. Even against the wall, continue to jump back and kick. The computer will walk into your foot every time.

Goro: He's a big, four-armed pain in the ass but is fairly simple if you pick Sub-Zero and keep freezing Goro in place ( ) just as he gets up from a knock down. Uppercut while frozen for maximum damage.

Shang Tsung: You'll want to duck under his 5 fireballs as they take off half your health. Go Liu Kang and when Shang is more than half screen away from you, do his flying kick then jump back and try to repeat. Timing is important and watch who he morphs into. They will use their special moves to the fullest so learn to avoid and try to only attack when Shang is on screen!

Same here.
I guess you're supposed to finish each game without using continue.

Hey I figured it out you have to beat all 3 test your might challenges, I fucked up on 2 my first play through. But when I beat it again I won on the 3 challenges, after I beat Shan Tsung the achievement poped up.

Wow thats pretty gay..i love mk but doesnt seem like these guys care much for balancing and tweaking thru patches for cheevs or for the hour it takes to find matches in retail mk or did they fix that already?

I just dont see the point in having a broken cheev they should have made test your might a seperate cheev just gay u have to go through it agaim for cheevo..

Can confirm you DONT have to play this on normal! I just did it on very easy and it popped up. The reason MK3 says any difficulty, is cos its refering to the ladder difficulty. Not the main menu settings.

I did this on very easy, did all test your mights, but no achievement.

ive completed all three games on easy and normal, done all the test your mights and still no fucking achievements wtf

Since this entire game glitches on all 3 MK's I'm sure they'll patch it up soon. I had no trouble getting the achievements.

I feel like when you change the difficulty at the menu, it doesn't affect the game. Shit was still ridiculously difficult even on "easy", so I just put it back to normal.

Pretty sure you do NOT need to do the test your mights though. Cause I fucked one up and still got the cheevo.

do you have to do it without continuing also? please say it ain't so...

Oh trust me, you can use continues. I failed so hard on Sonya, the FIRST fighter, then finally got in a groove, then failed again at the endurance matches. Then got raped by Goro God know's how many times. Then stopped by Shang Tsung's house for a nice flaming skull cupcake.

God I suck at the original MK games lol.

I'm going to say they patched it because I got it and probably continued about 50+ times.

And no you DON'T need to beat all the TYM challenges, I fucked the first one and still got the achievement.

it unlocked for me after i beat shang tsung so the achievement is not glitched

This is how I obtained this achievement - I played the entire game on normal, did fatalities in all matches, won all "Test your Might" challenges and used Liu Kang. The moment I beat Shang Tsung the achievement popped up.

Note* Fatalities and Test your Might challenges are not required for this achievement.

Also I would like to add that I agree with the majority of the people in this comment section, this achievement is glitched! Before I beat the game using Liu Kang I beat the game the same way mentioned above except I used Scorpion and I did not receive the achievement.

I ended up beating the game 3 times before it unlocked the achivement and the
first two times I passed 3 test your mights challenges the third time just to test
your might challenges it's a glitch guys

Just played First time, no achievement. Delete game and retried, achievement popped.

The name of the achievement says it all, ARCADE KOMPETITOR.
I'll give you all a hint. For all 3 games there is an arcade filter and there is a cabinet display.
Why would you need to successfully do test your might? Is the achievement called Test your Might ARCADE KOMPETITOR?
There is no glitch. Just do it the right way!

Just beat MK1 on very easy, completed all the Test Your Mights, and played only as Liu Kang and no achievement..........this is what pisses me off most about these crappy arcade games.

Make sure you play on the default difficulty for this game or else the cheevo glitches thats why it only says that you can only do it on any difficulty is UMK3

I've just done it with Raiden from start to finish, failed the first Test your strength and had it on very easy difficulty. Achievement popped as soon as I beat Shang Tsung

I finished this on very easy with Raiden and it popped for me.
