I absolutely adore everything Carmen Sandiego. I played the game back when computers operated on DOS. I lived for the show on PBS. I discovered Rockapella because of Carmen Sandiego. I am still convinced that I would have rocked the ass off of that show. Seriously, I would totally have won (as I would have at Legends of the Hidden Temple and Double Dare and Guts, oh and also Nick Arcade and basically any game show that was for kids back in the 90s – damn in Iowa! Why couldn’t you have had Nickelodeon or PBS studios??)
Anyways, I love Carmen and her beautiful hair and her gorgeous red coat (confession – I have a light red coat that I wear in the spring and fall and every time I wear it I like to pretend….). So imagine how I excited I was when on a whim tonight I looked on the internet to see if I could play the game online and I found it! The DOS version! But on the internet. So now it only takes me about 3 minutes to finish a case instead of the 30 it usually took because the computers back in the early 90s craaaaaawled.
You can join in too!
I’ve only solved one case – Thanks to my help, the Columbo police have apprehended Fast Eddie B! And like, a porcelain fan or something has been saved. I don’t know, I wasn’t paying attention in the beginning. I can’t wait until I make it to gumshoe. It should take me maybe another ten minutes.
**After a few minutes, I have advanced to sleuth. Also, ACME prisons must suck because I captured Dazzle Annie and then two cases later had to RECAPTURE her. Seriously, ACME, beef up your security!
