        The Basics
    *******************
    
           The combos of Mortal Kombat 4 don't seem to be as automated as they were
    in MK3.  Most combos consist of juggles like the old MK2/MK1 style.  The jump
    punch as a combo start remains from MK3.  High Punch to High Kick and High Kick
    to High Kick seem to serve as combo openers for all characters.  Any combo
    that begins with these can be preceded by a jumping High Punch or hopping High
    Punch.  Weapons can be drawn much faster and safer during combos by simply
    doing the weapon's motion.  For example, Sub-Zero would do High Kick, High 
    Kick, Quarter-circle Forward, High Kick and the weapon would attack during the 
    combo.
    
    The result is pretty impressive if the weapon connects, although it can be
    blocked in version one.  The programmers of Mortal Kombat 4 decided to limit
    combos.  Once a combo reaches 40% a "MAXIMUM DAMAGE" banner appears on the
    screen and the characters are thrown away from each other.  As on the MK3 CPU,
    the computer player seems to be vulnerable to a larger variety of combos than
    a human player.  The "pop-up" combos are back from MK3, too.  For Example,
    High Punch, High Kick, Uppercut.  These types of combos are available for all
    characters.  Also, version 1.0 seems to be a bit defective with the combo
    system.  Don't be suprised to see combos that do above seventy percent damage.
    Many creative combos can be performed in the corner by starting off with a deep
    jump kick and juggling with another jump kick.  It is rumored that Revision 3
    has a new type of combo system.  I haven't played Revision 3 so I am unable to
    verify this.
