View Full Version : Where in the world are all those Carmen Sandiego games?

How many games where released from this series? :confused
I just know '...in the world...' and '...in space...'

I can't speak for the whole series, but these are the Amiga releases (all commercial):
Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego? [1989/Brøderbund]
Where In The USA Is Carmen San Diego? [1989/Brøderbund]
Where In Europe Is Carmen San Diego? [1990/Brøderbund]
Where In Time Is Carmen San Diego? [1990/Brøderbund]
The dates refer to the Amiga release and the company refers to the US publishing (were they even released in Europe?)

I think I've only seen 1 Brøderbund release in Denmark, that was the Totally MAD CDs. But then again, we never get anything interesting imported here. Only crap games it seems right now.

Hmmm, so USA/Europe are also commercial ones, ok :) anyway, do anyone know of the "in space" Version ?? And @Twistin : Do you happen to have those 4 games you listed ?? Could you upload them ??

I'm afraid Space was never released for the Amiga though I'm probably wrong.
I have world on the Amiga. If Twist doesn't have them on hand I could try to image it and upload it to the zone. That's up to wether Twist has it in ADF format or not.

Nope, Space never made it to the Amiga. Brøderbund had jumped ship on the Amiga by the time that was released.
I have all four games if anyone would like them posted. I think I even have one of them in Spanish! Plus I have originals of USA and World.

I remember spending a lot of time playing the Europe version of Sandiego. Ok so it's edutainment (Isn't it?) but still fun. I'd like to try the other versions.
You say you have originals. Does that mean there's password protection? And do you have cracked versions without protection? The Sandiego game I have is Carmen World cracked by Paranomia. I can upload that if someone is interested in that particular crack.

I went ahead and posted them all. Two of them I know are cracks, two of them I saw no cracktros or other info from. I didn't run them through TOSEC, I just renamed them to look like I did.
I can't remember what protection, if any, there is. But if you run across any look-up stuff, let me know and I'll see what I can find. I didn't image any of these from my originals (I had them from the old days).
I did a quick once over with them in WinUAE and had a couple of guru's (right after the Paralamia boot cracktro and another after launching the icon) - feel free to do all of the testing and config'ing you like. It's too late/early in the night/morning for me! :D

Where in Space was, afaik, a spinoff. The game on the PC was called 'Where in Space is Han Solo?', and of course featured star wars shiznit.
I also remember 'Where in the TV Guide is Carmen Sandiego?' or some such nonsense. I dont know if it ever got released but it was planned and I got a screenshot in a mag.
