Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego? is an educational game created by Brøderbund Software and ported to the NES by Konami in 1991. Travel through time to find clues and collect warrants in order to capture Carmen Sandiego and her henchmen! The game focuses on teaching geography and history as you go to each time period, find the clues and arrest the crooks.

As in the "no save corruption" run of Pokémon: Blue Version, the enormous amount of luck manipulation needed to optimally play this game was calculated entirely by a bot written by the author of this run, Bobo the King. For more on this impressive program, check out the author's very creative submission text.
