Additional Information about Barbie Ocean Discovery (Nintendo Game Boy Color, 1999)
Mattel’s popular Barbie doll stars in this underwater adventure designed for the young and young at heart. This time Barbie is a marine biologist looking to rescue ocean creatures and perhaps find some treasure along the way. Control Barbie as she swims with her friend Sandy the dolphin while looking for doorways marked by moving bubbles. Each door reveals new areas to explore, but only after players complete the featured activities within the level. Barbie will eventually swim through a coral reef, a sunken ship, and even a city made entirely of crystals.
Each of the three undersea areas offers three different mini-games. Players will attempt to solve a scrambled picture game, snap up pearls using an oyster shell, match fish together, swim through mazes, and more. Once Barbie discovers a mini-game, she can return to it at any time to try to win additional prizes for her jewelry box. Each game also features four challenge levels along with a password, allowing players to resume their progress at a later time. Even when the mini-games are complete, Barbie can continue exploring to see how much treasure she can find.
