Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego? description

In this episode of the prolific series of games the boss of an international crime syndicate Carmen Sandiego has moved from the theft of national treasures to another dimension — the temporal. Now she and her gang will try to steal something significant not only across the globe, but also in different historical eras. It would seem to catch them all would be impossible, but not for the time-space cadet, whose role performed by you.

So armed with a license to use chronotimer, the device in the right part of the screen, the head of the Agency ACME instructs you to follow in the footsteps of another offender, collect evidence, question witnesses, pick up his trail and sent to jail. But now, in addition to knowledge of geography, it is necessary to know and a lot of historical facts — in the previous games the story was given very little attention. Countries in the game was only twelve, but because of the diversity of epochs is still difficult to understand at the tips, where the fugitive made another stop. It's not only about something very obvious, but also about some historical figures and events which the school do not study. Of course, some names immediately and they are no calls, but to think still have.

Everything else is on par with other games in the series the same time. You can allocate isn't that a pretty early example of using VGA graphics with 256 colors and the main menu resembling a more about the adventure.

In addition to the floppy disk manual box with the game could accommodate a big volume General encyclopedia in order to facilitate the work of novice Chronotech. He also served as a means of copy protection — and this book was difficult to scan or reprint. Another feature is that Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego was reprinted under Windows as a different game, and it is on this idea of jumping in time, it was based the game TV show.
