Where (on Google Earth) is Carmen Sandiego?
If you’re of a certain age, you likely remember playing Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego on your computer at home or at school. The educational computer game, cartoon TV series, and game show centered on the titular character, a super thief running around the globe with you on her tail.
Now, Google is bringing Carmen Sandiego into Google Earth for a series of games heavily-inspired by the original computer game. The first installment in this new series is called The Crown Jewels Caper, and you can play it now in the Google Earth app for Android and iOS or right in the Google Chrome browser.
To play the game, fire up the Google Earth app and look for the custom “Pegman” which will sport the iconic red coat and hat worn by Carmen Sandiego. Hitting the Pegman will launch the game’s title screen — just hit the big green “Begin the Chase” button to start it up.
If you don’t want to play at that time, you can always come back. When you relaunch Google Earth, just hit the navigation icon (it looks like the steering wheel for a ship) and you should see a big ad for the Carmen Sandiego game.
The Crown Jewels Caper was created by Google in partnership with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which owns the rights to Carmen Sandiego.
