Arcades games is back! After a long time without a little history
I decide to make new images based on old video games arcades!

Name- Liquid kids

Company- Taito

Year- 1990

Hardware- Taito F2 System hardware

Did you know.....
This game is known in Japan as "Mizubaku Daibouken".

Hipopo, the main character, appears in "Bubble Symphony" as a special character and in "Bubble Memories" as a giant bonus item. One of the secret rooms is built in the image of Tiki, the kiwi bird from "The New Zealand Story".

A port of Liquid Kids was planned for release on the Commodore Amiga by Manchester's 'Ocean Software', but despite the game being completed, the publishers decided that Liquid Kids would fail at retail and its release was cancelled. The Amiga version's lead programmer finally released the code to the Amiga community in 2003, allowing gamers to enjoy what was a very accomplished conversion for the first time.

As with many Taito games, Liquid Kids forbids the initials 'SEX' being entered on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'H'.

Zuntata Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Zuntata History L'ab-normal 1st - ZTTL-0038) on 01/04/1999.

Original pictures by is own company! All right reserve by Taito

Loved this game. I often play this on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 using MAMEDroid. The soundtrack composed by Kazuko Umino a.k.a Karu is par on David Wise or Grant Kirkhope's composition

One of my favorite games too. But what i really enjoyed to play was Legend of Hero Tonma. ^^

Some areas in the games are hard, that I had to use shortcuts and multiple save states. It gets REAL hard during the tree and cloud areas. The bosses are good too, but some of them looks (slightly) unusual like the second boss (the yellow foam-spewing funnel thingy) and the fifth boss (the fire spewing armed giant acorn thingy)

Wow. When I typed "Hipopo" into the search, I didn't expect anybody to actually know what the game was. I am shocked I ain't the only one who plays Liquid Kids.
