It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Mobile Game Review: Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego

Submitted by on September 6, 2010 – 05:062 Comments

When I was a little kid, I had this MegaStation where I played all my video games from Sonic to Mario Brothers and of course, one of my favourites, Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego. Now, ten years down the road, I’ve got my hands on Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego – the mobile version. I’m a tiny bit disappointed, I’ve gotta say. Because the mobile version is less interactive, lack of humour and the graphic illustrations are not one of the best I’ve ever seen.

For a player to truly enjoy this game, he/she has to be well-versed in geography and history topics because a lot of these questions are thrown to you during the game. You’ll have to know every main capital in the world, the history behind each place and recognise all the world maps.  So if geography and history is your cup of tea, you will enjoy this game. Unlike me, I can’t tell the difference between Vancouver and Boston, making the game a little too challenging for me.

However, fear not, because as you reach the 3rd rank in the game, you will be given a device that tells you all the facts you need to know about a country including its population, famous landmark, language, currency, etc. From there, the game gets much easier. All you have to do is figure out the world maps and the game is yours to conquer.

Nevertheless, one thing I am glad, the attractive appealing character of Carmen Sandiego did not waver one bit in the entire game. What makes the Carmen Sandiego games, TV show and story interesting is Carmen Sandiego herself. With a solid character, personality and approach to things, it’s no wonder that one can be captivated by her as an individual, despite the fact that she plays the role of the best thieves in the world. But to have the children crazy about such a thief, is it any good at all?

    Looking through your website a thought occurred in my experience. I’ll tell you honestly that today there are actually so many MMORPGs that I don’t know what is the perfect play. Again and all over again produced some new game and it’s hard to determine what level these people represent. Obviously as a major fan of most of these games have its favorites, but these are only old games which are already out there for several years. I would love to try something brand new. Do you have any ideas?
