In the game, Ken would call Barbie (the player). He would tell you where you were going, and you would have a certain amount of time to go shopping and get dressed and back in time so that he could take you on a date. The game had really cheesy graphics and horrible music. However, since it was so horribly sexist and strange, I really wanted to find it.
You can actually download this badboy, along with the C-64 emulator, to try and get to the picnic/prom/tennis on time. If you’re late, apparently Ken bitch-slaps you. Oh, those politically-incorrect eigties.
I’m kidding about the bitch-slapping. The writer reports that “the screen fills with garbage and freezes”. There’s lot of other cool stuff on this SolidSharkey site as well. For example, here’s an important lesson in distinguishing male prostitutes from super heroes.
