CIA agent for a day

Remember the old “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” computer game you used to play as a kid? Someone has resurrected the idea using the Google Maps API and a modern twist.

In “Brewster Jennings protects America”:http://www.brewsterjennings.com/ you’re an undercover CIA agent tracking terrorists intent on detonating a nuclear device in the US. It’s pretty diverting if you like Google Maps and geography, and actually fairly challenging.

By the way, the name refers to “Brewster Jennings & Associates”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brewster_Jennings_&_Associates which you may remember being in the news as the CIA front company that Valerie Plame worked for. Don’t worry, I didn’t remember that either until I googled it. 🙂
