I remember as a kid playing the originals on my
Apple IIC. Even King's Quest where it took over a minute to load when going to the next screen.

This looks like a definite winner and throwback to the mid 80s.

Imps? And I notice it has IAP. I hope it's for added content and not for FTP gimmicks like timers and other BS.

The core game itself is lovely. I just have a couple of gripes with it. 1) Consumable IAP to buy coins, which speed up the travelling times among other things (albeit behind various math questions so that kids...who don't know how to use calculators...can't access the IAP). 2) The runner segments are bad. Like REALLY bad. Like, "Oh my God, what were you thinking?" BAD!!!

There's also a $1.99 IAP for more content that, obviously, I'm fine with.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Via Wikipedia, Carmen Sandiego franchise is aimed at preteens. Does anyone know if this episode is targeting a more mature audience? Thanks in advance

Never mind; target age 10-14
