You either know the name, or you don’t. And if you know the name, you either know where in the world she is, or you don’t! Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego is the first computer game I remember playing at school. We had a tiny bank of computers that would take far too long to load up, and twenty of us would have to rotate through to take turns on this most awesome game of geography and investigation.
Carmen Sandiego is a mastermind villain, sending her agents around the world to wreak havoc. Your job is to track down her henchmen, and eventually catch up with Carmen Sandiego herself. You visit locations, collect clues (in the form of riddles or puns) and slowly eliminate suspects until you can issue an arrest warrant. It’s a totally cool idea now, and as a 10 year old, it was AWESOME. You don’t even realise it is educational, which is the best kind of learning!
