Ken went to the carnival, and everyone said it would be a good idea if he volunteered for the magician's vanishing trick. Well, the trick worked, but the magician could not bring Ken back. What's more, Ken had all the carnival money with him!
Everyone's looking for Ken but no one has a clue where he is. Enter Detective Barbie for her first big case.

more than 25 locations within the carnival
a database of more than 50,000 names
clues and suspects change every time the game is played
carnival rides that Barbie can go on
The entire game is controlled via the mouse. To move Barbie, the mouse must be dragged to the edges of the screen, at which point the cursor turns into a big pink arrow.
