The first game, “The Crown Jewels Caper,” was released Wednesday with two additional capers to follow in May and June.
The games will be available in Google Earth for Chrome, Android and iOS—complete with a Sandiego version of the app's Pegman.
Just like the classic games, the Google Earth series will let players interact with dozens of “witness” characters in cities worldwide, who will offer clues about Sandiego's whereabouts. Players then track Sandiego across the globe to try and catch the elusive heroine.
