Where in the U.S.A. is Carmen Sandiego? CD-Rom Broderbund 1996

This game was remastered and re-released in the Windows and Macintosh formats, and featured Lynne Thigpen as "The Chief". The opening credits shows Carmen arriving in her underground V.I.L.E. outpost in Washington, D.C., as she and RoboCrook plots to steal America's greatest treasure. Carmen then contacts each of her V.I.L.E. operatives telling them to begin their missions. Unlike in the previous games, the image of the locations took up most the screen, with the game options only taking up the bottom third of the screen. Each location had an elaborately painted backdrop that could be scrolled around a full three hundred and sixty degrees. Each location provided clues in the form of several bystanders and scraps of paper lying on the ground. The scraps of paper exclusively provided clues about the suspect's appearance. Another change is that the user is not given dossiers describing the members of V.I.L.E. and that all the clues given about the suspect are physical traits, enabling the user to identify the crook on sight. This means that the user will have to compile a full warrant rather than one of just enough traits to distinguish which crook is responsible. Another added feature were the ACME Good Guides, a group of colorful characters who, if called upon, provide information about the United States. If the user calls an ACME Good Guide during a case, that guide will call back later to inform the user whether or not their warrant has any errors. If the user wishes to take tours with the Good Guides and travel to states without the inconvenience of having to track a crook, "explorer mode" is available. The animation in the game closely imitated the look of traditional animated cartoons. The animations that alert the user that the correct destination has been reached featured either Carmine from Junior Detective Edition or a pair of bumbling janitors named Rick and Nick ICK, or RoboCrook.
