Where in the U.S.A. is Carmen Sandiego? is a computer game based on the popular game, Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? In the game, players play as ACME agents and travel to 51 locations around the United States (one for each state and the District of Columbia) in order to find Carmen Sandiego's V.I.L.E. henchmen. At the first rank, gumshoe, the player has 6 days (144 hours) to track down, identify, issue a warrant for, and capture the criminal. Every third or fourth crime a player solves, he goes up in rank. This means that the player will have to travel through another city in the same amount of time. There are ten different ranks, and the player will run into Carmen at the rank of Super Sleuth after he or she has solved 39 crimes.
