Hikou no mizu is a fighting game with an anime and manga theme.
There are currently three player characters (Hikou, Takino, and Hana), controllable by keyboard or joystick, and a variety of interactive arenas of different sizes. Players can move left and right, jump and crouch, and can attack by either punching, kicking or chucking a throwing star. There can be as many as six players on one screen in local games, which can include computer controlled players. The winner of the match is the last one standing.
Networked multiplayer is supported as of version 1.0. It lets players join a server and roam in the arena with other peers until enough players have connected, such that a game can be started. Games are organized as a set of rounds, and complete once a player has won the required amount of rounds. After that, the arena is changed and a new game is queued.
