Bruce Lee/The Dragon Review

Something a little different today: an unlicensed Famicom game aimed primarily at the Middle Eastern market: The Dragon (a.k.a. Bruce Lee). By Ramar International (a.k.a. Rinco) and Tony Tech. A little unusual in that it features an Arabic language option, as presumably its target market was Middle Eastern.

This game uses Liu Kang sprites to represent Bruce Lee. It also uses other MK characters and renames them to fit the game's "story" (if it can be called that): Scorpion (Suzuki/ninja), Johnny Cage (Ram/King Fighter), Kano (Mr. Tat/Chevalier of the East), Sonya (Alice Yang/Pussycat), and Raiden (Fatek/Iron Mask Man).

Hummer Team's Ture MK3 Review

Today I'm posting my review of the Hummer Team's release of Mortal Kombat 3 on the 8-bit Famicom/NES. There are several variations of this game, so it's alternatively known as Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat 4, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4. Full credit goes to the individuals who worked on the game (Juing Long, Alex Yev, and Huei Fan) as well as the companies that had a hand in developing and distributing it (Hummer Team, NT/KaSheng, ABAB Soft, Inc., and Gold Leopard).

Mortal Kombat Mythologies Gold 2000 (SNES) Review

Here's a review of the ultra-rare pirated SNES port of Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, and the full title's a doozy: Mortal Kombat Mythologies Gold 2000. I've been trying to get ahold of this game for years, and have finally managed to do so. Since the game is so difficult to get ahold of, this review is very detailed and explains what it's all about:



When it comes to pirate games of the Mortal Kombat series, it doesn't get much more obscure than this! Enjoy, and see you at the next update.

Here's yet another review from me, time it's of the infamous pirate cart of Mortal Kombat Mythologies, often referred to as Mortal Combat 5, for the 16-bit Sega Genesis/Mega Drive:

Dragon Fighter Review

Happy New Year! I'm back, after three years' absence. Here's something a little different from me - a review of a pirate Mortal Kombat game released for the 8-bit Famicom/NES system. Technically not just a Mortal Kombat game, but a crossover as it also includes characters from Street Fighter, Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury, and DC comics. It can be seen here:



Until next time, Pavilion fans! (Whenever that may be.)

New Screensaver

Merry Christmas, everyone! And just in time for the holidays, here's an excellent winter-themed screensaver:


Hopefully, at some point down the road I'll be able to go back to regular updates. Not any time in the immediate future, but it would be nice to go back to posting comics and animations and stuff.

In the mean time, if any MK fans have any web experience and would like to provide some extra assistance, help would be welcomed. The Kombat Pavilion has pretty much been a one-man show for the last 15 years, so a helping hand might be nice and ensure more frequent updates. :)

Thanks go to DraftMazda for making today's update possible (and by that I mean, actually creating the screensaver).
