Liquid Kids

Liquid Kids
GenreArcade Platform
Reviewed byndial
Liquid Kids is one of the best arcade platform video games released originally for the arcades in 1990 by Taito. The first conversion of the game was the NEC PC Engine's, developed in 1992 and it was followed by a Commodore Amiga conversion made by Ocean Software. Some years later the game was also released for the Sega Saturn game console.
You control a tapir called Hipopo and begin your quest to find your kidnapped girlfriend and rescue her from some evil foes. The way is pretty hard and the action quite tense, as you have to fight against a large number of creatures each time. Hipopo is armed with water bombs that can be thrown at enemies to soak and do some damage to them them. Once soaked, the enemies can then be kicked and destroyed forever. However, if you leave some creatures alive (soaked), they will soon dry out and recover, attacking you again. Each stage of the game features moving platforms, collapsible floors, boats and water-wheels thus requiring some nice skills from you to go further.

The PC-Engine's version produces great visuals with colorful backdrops (much like the original arcade game). The sprites move smoothly on-screen and act fast, which makes the gameplay particularly fun! Liquid Kids' sound is good too, offering all the original in-game musics plus some nice, arcadey sounds effects (based of course on the system's hardware).
