Mortal Kombat Advance is the name given to the Game Boy Advance port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. The game was panned by critics and fans alike. Some players complained that the CPU difficulty had increased dramatically from UMK3, with computer opponents executing excessively long and difficult combos, with other complaints targeted towards the unresponsive and condensed control scheme, due to the GBA's four button input. Electronic Gaming Monthly editor Dan Hsu gave it the first "0" rating in the magazine's history. It currently has a rank of 34% at Game Rankings. The AI was simply atrocious, as even on the easy difficulty, the AI could perform seemingly impossible combos. However, the AI could be defeated in very cheap ways, like walking them into the corner and performing the first three hits of a combo or (if skilled enough) spamming Smoke's or Sektor's teleport punch. Because of these ratings, it is considered to be one of the worst games in the series, besides Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.

The character roster is the same as its 16-bit counterparts. The Game Boy Advance version features two less buttons than were used in UMK3, which resulted in many special move button sequences being consolidated or changed. The violence in this game was toned down due to a younger fan base using the Game Boy Advance (though the game is still rated M for Mature). Blood is seen less in this version of the game. Each character (except for Noob Saibot and the bosses) has one Fatality and one Friendship. Three hidden characters can be used by completing any tower other than Novice. The hidden characters are Shao Kahn (Grand Master), Motaro (Master) and Human Smoke (Warrior). The fatalities are described as cutting your opponent into a pile of cold cuts.
