Based on the animated film of the same name, Bebe's Kids is a 2D side-scrolling brawler in the style of The Simpsons Arcade Game. The player can can choose to play as Lashawn, the girl, or Kahill, the boy, although each character plays identically. Each has a basic punch, kick, and jump button, along with a modifier button that allows, when held in correspondence to an attack, an uppercut move which defeats basic enemies in a few attacks. Most of the game is a simple side-scroller with a few basic environments, such as the food court and the haunted house. There are some light puzzle elements, along with a maze level.
Bebe's Kids was met with highly negative reception. It was the first and only game in Nintendo Power's history to receive a score of 0.
Among the problems critics cited were the unforgiving time limit for each level, awkward controls, faulty collision detection, grating and repetitive audio, and the excessive amount of damage enemies can take.
