Barbie is a Commodore 64 computer game from 1984 that allows players to participate in the life of the famous fashion doll of the same name.

Gameplay

Barbie is calling her boyfriend Ken at 1 o'clock in the afternoon to go out on a date.

Players must talk to their boyfriend Ken (using a real voice audio soundtrack) in addition to driving a yellow convertible around town, trying out swimming outfits (both one-piece and two-piece swimsuits can be used) in addition to dresses and shoes.[4] Options for dates include either a dinner out on the town or a relaxing day at the beach.[4] An incorrect combination of clothing will force Barbie to skip the date sequence and work her way towards the next objective while a correct combination will allow players to see Barbie and her date in a photograph of the event.[4]
