Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego started what would become a hit series of games and it even spawned television program. You begin the game as a rookie detective at the ACME Detective Agency. Your main objective is to capture the world's greatest thief, Carmen Sandiego.
The game is divided into a number of cases that must be solved in order to progress through five different ranks. To solve each case witnesses need to be interviewed which will provide the player with descriptions of the criminal and the criminal's next location. Using a crime computer a possible suspect can be found and a warrant can be issued.
Tracking criminals is where most of your time will be spent. Take the information gained from witnesses and using a World Almanac (included with the game) you must determine from a list of possible destinations where the criminal went. Going to the wrong location will waste time and if the criminal cannot be caught within the time limit then they will escape. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
