    Remember Soldier, the 1998 Kurt Russell space punch-fest no one remembers? Probably not.

    The final game, The ClueFinders: Mystery Mansion Arcade, brought together the antagonists of all previous installments to get revenge on the four child protagonists.

You find out that the mysterious, Dr. Claw-esque mastermind behind the bad guys was Carmen Sandiego, who had never even been mentioned before.
