Coca-Cola Kid (コカコーラキッド?) is a Japan-exclusive Sega Game Gear side-scrolling action video game released in 1994. The game stars the Coca-Cola Kid, Coca-Cola's Japanese mascot of the 1990s.[2] In addition to a standalone release, it was also included with a special red Game Gear bundle.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

The game uses timed platform game sequences.[4] Power-ups include the famous Coca-Cola soft drink that helps restore health and the coins that helps the player buy items between stages.[4]

The time limit is constantly moving upward, the player loses a life if the timer reaches 9:59 (stages always start with the timer at 0:00). Attacks in the games include kicks and flying kicks.[5] Obstacles, like the telephone booths in the downtown level, can also be torn down.[5]
