The third Barbie game in the Barbie: Princess Adventure series is a remake of the original game in 2020. In this game, you play as both a female and male version of Barbie and you can choose between different Barbie roles like the "Girl Genius" or the "Tunnel King."
When you start playing, you will notice that there are three stages to the game, each having different tasks to accomplish. After switching roles with a Barbie who resembles herself, she must thwart the schemes of a wicked prince who has switched identities with an equally devious princess. If you don't play the right role, your favorite doll might become a slave. If you choose the correct role, you get to make decisions regarding your relationship with the character, changing her from a victim to a conqueror.
Barbie: Princess Adventure features the use of many of the same features as the previous games in the series. You must solve puzzles to advance through each stage. During your journey, you will encounter many different situations that must be solved by combining different parts of the doll's personality.
Unlike the previous games, the levels of this game are set up in different aspects, such as a circus, a cave, and even an alien ship. Each stage also features a unique story to solve. As for the graphics, they are the same as those of the previous games. You can select from five different backgrounds, depending on your choice.
As mentioned earlier, this game is available on a PlayStation Portable and Xbox Live Arcade. It also includes an enhanced version of the PSP version. For the purpose of this review, I played the PS Vita version.
The gameplay of Barbie: Princess Adventure is still the same. You will still find yourself searching for objects and solving puzzles as you move through the stages of the game, but the game now allows you to play it without actually wearing the Barbie outfit.
There are many different levels of the game. Most of the levels require you to find something hidden and then use your knowledge to defeat the villains. However, if you are playing as a girl, you will find it more challenging than the usual ones.
Each of the levels also has different parts. Once you reach the end of the stage, you will be presented with several options such as unlocking secret passages or finding a secret treasure chest. Once you do these tasks, you will be rewarded with a ribbon that points towards the next level.
The different options that are unlocked depend on your ability to think creatively. If you find yourself stumped, you will need to search for a solution that will help you get past the puzzle. the level more easily.
