Capsule Review: how do you Do It?

An extremely short game where you play as a preteen girl trying to figure out sex by bumping her Barbie and Ken dolls together in the minute or two before her mother gets home. You control - loosely - the position of the dolls, and then you’re given a tally of how many times you “might have done sex” and are either caught by mom or put the dolls away just in time to avoid this fate. Either way, the game ends.

It does an okay job capturing the mood of of growing up and getting curious without having access to good educational resources and hiding your experimentation from your parents. For the right demographic it will be a bite-sized piece of nostalgia, although the ragdoll wackiness of the way the dolls move does disrupt the immersion a bit. But there’s very little here and the game doesn’t seem to have anything to say about it except to remind the player that this is what things used to be like for the relevant segment of the population.

I Stopped Playing When: I played a couple of times, getting caught the first time and avoiding it the second time.

Docprof's Rating:

One Star: Not for me. While there might be someone out there who'd enjoy this game, I was actively repulsed by it or just found nothing to latch on to.
