Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that his game is loosely based on the 1995 teen movie starring Alicia Silverstone as a well-meaning matchmaker. Unlike the movie, which was considered a successful remake of Jane Austen's Emma, Clueless the game doesn't have much emotional depth, just fashion, dating, and makeover exercises. On the upside, the main character is very considerate of others' feelings.
Is it any good?
Clueless is a dress-up and BFF game. In timed mini-games you recreate ensembles from memory, give cute gifts, and find dates for friends. Fashion faux pas are met with spoken Valley Girl "Ewwww"s. Level up from the classroom to adventures at the mall and parties. The colorful graphics, very basic animation, and perky sitcom-like background music is pleasant enough, but only tweens will be entertained for long.
