Liquid Kids (Arcade)
Liquid Kids is an arcade video game released by Taito in 1990.
Now play it on the web.
The basic gameplay consists of jumping and throwing bubbles. Unlike Bub and Bob’s bubbles, Hipopo’s bubbles don’t float up. In fact, they are filled with water and pop as soon as they hit something. After popping, water flows out and freezes any enemies it touches (enemies will appear out of fiery portals).
If Hippo throws too rapidly, the bubbles will become small and ineffective until some time is given to recharge. The player can hold the throw button down to charge the bubble. Doing so will increase the size of the bubble, thus letting the water flow further than it would otherwise. Once an enemy is frozen, Hipopo must touch them to defeat them. The enemy is then kicked at a high speed, killing any enemies in the way. Wait too long and they regain consciousness and continue fighting. Most enemies are specific to the level, though there are a few that can be seen throughout.
Levels without bosses are won by freeing a hippo at the end of the level. Each world has three levels (or two if the right doors are chosen) and each world has a boss. At the end of every boss fight, the player has a choice of two doors. They both lead to the next world, but one brings Hipopo to the start, while the other brings him a little further in. Hipopo must make it through all the worlds to finally face off against the Fire Devil.
