Kick is an action arcade game where the player controls a clown on a unicycle, catching falling balloons and Pac-Man characters on the clown’s hat.
At the beginning of each round, a set of balloons and (in later rounds) Pac-Man characters hover above the clown. As each object is dropped towards the clown, different colored balloons fall at different rates. The player must catch each falling object on the clown’s hat. If the player does not catch a falling balloon or character, they have a chance to kick the object back into the air. This gives the player another chance to catch the object.
The game has always included characters from the popular Pac-Man game. To further capitalize on the popularity of Pac-Man, later editions of the game changed the title to Kick Man.
