Liquid Kids

Commodore Amiga - 2003

Another cute run'n'jump romp from Taito. The hero's gimmick is his ability to shoot and burst bubbles full of water, a bit like Bubble Bobble only this one scrolls horizontally. A solid conversion that respects the original arcade game in a lot of aspects. However, some choices are strange, like the design of mountains of the first level or the musics that are nice but totally different than the original ones. The real harsh fact is of course the reduced screen size. Sprites are smaller but they don't respect the arcade proportionals in playing area, making more difficult to anticipate...

Although scheduled for release in mid-1991 and completed, the Amiga conversion was never published. Later, the game was rediscovered and released for free.
