Mortal Kombat is the 9th installment in the series. This time around, instead of a lengthy Konquest. You get a series of hard challenges, known as The Challenge Tower. This guide will help you try and complete all 300 challenges inside the tower. I will provide videos if possible. I wrote this guide for the Xbox 360 version so when I list controls, they will be with the Xbox 360 buttons. The moves should work the same for the PS3 version of the game just different mapping of the buttons. Also all moves are done with your character on the left side of the screen.
