This game sees the titular thief Carmen Sandiego and her VILE gang steal jewels from museums around the world and to try to find out the famous confession of Leonardo da Vinci‘s brother Ruperta.[3] The player’s goal is to stop Carmen and capture her thieves. Starting as an inexperienced rookie, the player’s first quest is to retrieve the Napoleon bowl that was stolen from the Louvre museum in Paris and apprehend the thief.[3] It is then revealed that the bowl has spaces for 8 jewels, and it is the players’ task to find these treasures.[3]

The game is an arcade game combined with an adventure game, but it also contains didactic elements, focusing on geography.[3] The adventure mode must be completed first before another mode is unlocked.[3] The adventure consists of 12 cases to solve, and the difficulty level slightly increases as the player progresses through the game.[3]

Each investigation sends the player to various cities around the world. Their task is to interrogate witnesses, find out what the perpetrator looks like (three clues are required to obtain an arrest warrant), and obtain clues about their whereabouts.[3] Players have seven days to solve each case. The player chooses the next destination on a map: if they choose incorrectly they lose time.[3]

As the player gains experience, they gain access to two useful gadgets – the almanac (which contains detailed information about the city) and a scanner (which helps to find clues in the city).[3] The game includes 3 mini-games: “World Chase” – selecting the capital of a given country, “Flag Quiz” – recognizing the flag of a given country, and “Face Match” – remembering then indicating facial features.[3]
