The Great Waldo Search is a Sega and Nintendo game released in 1992. It is based on the third Waldo book of the same name.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The pictures are slightly animated images of Waldo scenes, the player has to scroll along the long picture to survey the scape while searching for Waldo and other objects. The directional buttons control a magnifying glass and is used in order to "find" objects. Waldo's dog Woof is also in each level and by finding him the player gets to play a small bonus game to collect points while controlling Woof on a flying carpet. Clues: When you see something not right in the image, find a clock by it. Wizard Whitebeard will tell you what it looks like. The graphics of the Sega and Super Nintendo versions are vastly improved from the original Nintendo version, but the levels and gameplay remain the same.
