Carmen Sandiego and her gang are loose once again, and it is the players job to capture her! This time round the player not only has to find where she is, but also when she is. Traveling to various locations, they need to assemble clues by questioning witnesses and searching locations to close in and capture Carmen Sandiego. Included with the game is The New America Desk Encyclopedia to help make clues more meaningful (and act as a form of copy protection!).
That is the question on the mind of every agent at the ACME Detective Agency. You have been granted the use of ACME's Portable Chronoskimmer, a device that enables you to travel through time. Various items have been stolen from around the globe and through time, and your job is to get them back.
The premise of this game, like the others in the Carmen Sandiego series by Broderbund, is simple. Apprehend the thief by following him or her to the different locations. In order to do this, you will need to question witnesses and informants, and scan for objects. These clues will point you in the correct direction to pursue. However, there is a catch: You only have a certain amount of time to apprehend the thief, and everything you do costs valuable time! However, if you succeed in arresting all of Carmen's henchmen (and henchwomen), you will be finally able to track down Carmen Isabella Sandiego herself.
This game has good graphics for its time, and the sound is of fairly good quality for PC-Speaker sound. I would give this game a 5, because it has everything that a good game should have. Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? is fun, challenging, and at times humorous. This is a terrific game for anyone who wants to learn about history while capturing dangerous criminals at the same time.
Part of the Carmen Sandiego Series
Undoubtedly the most successful edutainment franchises, the Where in [xxx] is Carmen Sandiego? is Broderbund's flagship series that has spawned numerous sequels, TV shows, and even board games. Premiered in 1985 with Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, subsequent releases have sold millions of copies collectively worldwide. But until multimedia CD-ROM versions of the game appeared in 1995, the individual Carmen Sandiego titles were not all blockbusters.
The premise behind every Carmen Sandiego game is identical: starting out as a rookie detective, your job is to track down a gang of thieves who are stealing the world's (or the galaxy's/USA's/Europe's/history's as the case may be) most precious treasures. After each assignment briefing, you are given a deadline to capture the thief. Then it's off to the travel screen, where you pick the next destination to track the thief. At each location, you must interpret various clues from a number of sources (informants, etc.) to figure out the thief's next stop, as well as his/her identity. Your mission is a success when you track the thief to the right final hideout (plus time period, if you are playing Where in Time version) with the arrest warrant issued for the correct suspect before the deadline. Missions are progressively more difficult as you solve cases and win promotions.
Every Carmen Sandiego game contains hundreds of clues, attractive graphics and cartoons, and fun gameplay that will captivate kids and adults alike.
Between the original 1985/86 CGA versions and after 1995 (where CD-ROM era began), Carmen Sandiego games can be categorized into 2 groups, each based on the underlying engine: the first group comprises "VGA enhanced versions" releases between 1989 and 1992. In this group, in the order of release, belong Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?, Where in Europe is Carmen Sandiego?, Where in America's Past is Carmen Sandiego?, Where in The World is Carmen Sandiego? (Enhanced), and Where in The USA is Carmen Sandiego? (Enhanced). The second group are games released between 1992 and 1994 that are based on the improved game engine that offers high-res VGA graphics, thousands of clues (as opposed to hundreds), and a more polished interface. These include Where in The World is Carmen Sandiego? Deluxe Edition, Where in Space is Carmen Sandiego?, and Where in The USA is Carmen Sandiego? Deluxe Edition. Of all these games, Where in Europe is Carmen Sandiego? and Where in The USA is Carmen Sandiego? Deluxe Edition are the hardest to find.
All 8 aforementioned releases are now available for download from this site, as a tribute to one of the best edutainment series ever made. Whether you have a kid in your house or not, Carmen Sandiego games will glue you to the screen for hours on end if you have even a slight interest in geography, history, or trivia in general.
The mystery series continue. In this episode you'll have to fly through time with your chronotrigger to catch the thief. Pieces of the puzzle will fall together once you progress and get more and more clues. Good luck with hunting!
