For Arcade Classics, we highlight titles that exemplify the type of “just one more quarter” gameplay found in the classic arcades of a bygone era. These Arcade Classics have found a new home on the Legends Arcade Family of products, where their timeless, approachable gameplay can be enjoyed by new generations of players.
This week’s Arcade Classics is Liquid Kids.
Liquid Kids, which first hit arcades in 1990, is a platform game starring a hero of the hippo tribe, Hipopo. Players are tasked with traveling through the land of Woody-Lake, throwing water bombs and jumping on and off platforms to navigate level obstacles while dodging and defeating monsters in order to rescue Tamasun from her captor, the Fire Demon. Every two levels is a boss that needs to be defeated in order to proceed to the next level.
