Keys to the Kremlin

No, it’s not an election campaign.  It’s another game of Carmen Sandiego playable on top of Google Earth.

Like the previous games, it’s written and played like the original game from years gone by … just in or on Google Earth.

In a Candy Crush world, it’s wonderful to see a throwback to the screen resolution and fonts that we grew with in personal computers.

The game remains the same – follow the villain, oh so VILE,  around the world using the hints given by people that you run into.  They’re pretty cryptic but will get you thinking.  (I asked all the people I ran into just in case I jumped to the wrong conclusion.)

What I especially like was the integration with Google Earth.  You’ll be dropped into places that you might find yourself but the developers have done wonderful job of placing you at just the right angle to fully appreciate what you’re looking at.

Give it a play at the link above and marvel at how far we’ve come with graphics and how far more sophisticated technology enables games these days.

Just give honour to those early developers that started it all.
