Every once in a while there are days where I wake up in the morning, slowly crawl my way to the kitchen, put the kettle on and as it’s drearily whistling away the dream world that’s still lingering at the corners of my mind, I can’t help but feel that irresistible urge to get on the computer and play… well, barbie games. And I’m sure I’m definitely not the only one. Right?
In fact, there’s this one particular game that really gets me going, especially in mornings such as this and the game is called Barbie Stunts. I guess one of the main reasons I’m so fond of this game has to do with the fact that it closely resembles one of my old time favorites, a 2D motorcycle scroller named Elasto Mania.
Put your fabulous helmet on and hop on Barbie’s pink scooter to rush through the city doing crazy jumps and insane stunts that are guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping in no time!
Well, I might have oversold the game just a little bit, but the goal, nevertheless, is fairly simple: complete the stunts, back flips, front flips and other things this game may or may not make you do and reach the finish line with a high enough score to end the level successfully.
You have to use the arrow keys on your keyboard to accelerate, lean backwards, forwards and to apply the brakes where necessary. Additionally you can do a few other stunts using the NUM keys on your keyboard.
Barbie Memory Match
It’s always a good idea to take a break and play a memory game every now and then to keep your brain, especially the bits that deal with memory, in good shape.
I really enjoy these kinds of games because they pretty much teach your brain how to scan for information, like literally. And because I have a pretty good picture memory anyway, I can probably beat you in these kinds of games even on my bad day.
All you have to do in this game is to flip a card, then flip another one and another one until you find a match. Once you do, you need to recall where the matching card was and flip it upside down. If you do it right, you’ll gain a point. In not, well, at least you tried.
