The The Great Waldo Search wiki last edited by SaturdayNightSpecials on 06/28/14 01:58PM View full history


The Great Waldo Search is a hidden object game developed and published by THQ for the NES, SNES, and Genesis platforms. It is based on the third Waldo book by Martin Handford, which was released in the US with the same name as this game. The Great Waldo Search would later be adapted to iOS and PC as well.


The player must not only find Waldo/Wally before the time limit expires, but also one of Wizard Whitebeard's scrolls. If the player locates Woof, Waldo's dog, then they are taken to a simple mini-game which can add to the player's score if they do well enough. Similarly finding banners in any scene increases the score, while clocks increase the timer (or freeze it briefly, on Expert mode). The main game consists of five levels, each with a different visual theme.
