This was a classic platform-style game in which players navigated Barbie through three unique worlds. In one world, players controlled Barbie as she searched for pearls in an underwater environment. Another stage, which takes place in a mall, involved Barbie looking for coins and dodging giant French fries.Learn more about Group Games
