Review by Tom Allen
1 Star out of 4

Reviewing this title was difficult. First of all, it's not a game. It's a personal digital assistant, economically scaled for the Game Boy Color.

Most reviewers would use this title as an opportunity to poke fun at Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson and the incredible marketing machine behind them, but I will refrain from mentioning how ugly these kids were as babies.

Instead, I will focus on the product itself and not the dolls on the packaging. This password- protected cartridge allows girls to keep a schedule appointments, view calendars by day, week, or month, and maintain "to do" lists. Other features range from silly to super-silly.

The crush meter is the silliest. Point your Game Boy at someone, press A, and see if that guy has a crush on you! Yes, this is just like the love tester machine in your local bar.

That example pretty much speaks for all the other features. While I admire the novelty in the concept, I still come to the conclusion that anyone who has the time to enter all their notes into a Game Boy cartridge really needs to discover the efficiency of pen and paper.

This is cute, but not practical.
