Mortal Kombat 1 is all about protecting your timeline, and in Invasion, you’re tasked with doing just that. Using your favorite characters and Kameos, you are tasked with protecting yourself from invaders ranging from an evil Scorpion variant to a crazy Ninja Mime.
All of this occurs on board game-like world maps set in various locations, beginning in Johnny Cage’s proclaimed “haunted” mansion. Going through maps like this, you will face various battles where you will earn experience points, equippable items, in-game currency, and key items that will help you progress.
Incentives that make Invasion mode a must-watch include unlockable customizable cosmetics for your characters, behind-the-scenes content, and more Kameo fighters. Be sure to spend a little time exploring here.
If you’re a Mortal Kombat fan, this might sound similar to Towers or Krypt, and that’s because it’s like an evolution of those classic modes combined into one. As with Towers, your enemy encounters are divided into mini-games like Test Your Might.

Equipping the cast with customizable attack items and experimenting with their stats is a fun side project. Having to conquer a path of enemies with random elements like rain of fireballs and booby-trapped stages adds an element of comedy and surprise to the experience. One example that made me laugh was a random saw blade taking me by surprise mid-fight.

There’s even a feature where enemies will perform slower punishable moves, so you’ll learn to constantly interrupt them and take advantage of the battle.
