Barbie: Super Model is a one or two player multiplayer educational action video game that allows the player to play as Barbie.

Gameplay[edit]

The main part of the game comprises very simple arcade-style sequences.[6] In each level, the player must navigate from one end of a horizontally scrolling area to the other, avoiding all of the obstacles and potential hazards coming towards the main character.[6] Players can either do the "normal" difficulty level with everything or the "easy" difficulty level that allows younger children to try the matching games without dealing with the side-view levels.[6]

The levels each have a different theme. The themes include driving Barbie's convertible in Hollywood,[7] roller skating in Hawaii,[7] walking in the snow during a vacation in Vail,[7] and riding her bike in New York City.[7] The arcade-style sequences are interspersed with sections that test the player's memory. At the half-way point of each level the player can practice Barbie's moves for a fashion show.[7] At the end of each level, the player must correctly perform these moves from memory.[7]

Bonus round[edit]

By collecting certain objects, the player can unlock bonus rounds.[6][7] The aim of these rounds is to dress Barbie and choose her makeup and earrings in order to match magazine covers.[6] The two player option is essentially the same as the one player option; the players take turns in completing the same levels, and do not interact with one another.[8]
