Find Waldo + His Friends with Google Maps ‘Where’s Waldo’ Edition
It's a fresh new take on an old classic. But beware, it's addicting.
Who didn't love Where's Waldo back in the day? I could spend hours searching through those books looking for the man in the red stripes and glasses. Well Waldo is now invading your Google Maps. While I wish this could be an interactive, augmented reality game like Pokemon Go, I'll take what I can get.
Who has time to run all over town anyway?
In this version, you can search for Waldo and his friends all over the world. Advance through the levels as Google Maps takes you to different cities. Once you select a city, you'll be given an animation to search through, just like you would find in the books back in the day. I haven't made it through all of the levels yet, but you better bet that I will before the day is done. (Just don't tell my boss.)
You can play on your iPhone or Android. Just make sure that you have downloaded the latest version of Google Maps. You can also play on your desktop at Google.com/maps. Look for Waldo's hat on the drop down menu and then follow the prompts to get started. If you make it through the levels successfully, you will unlock a secret level in which you will have to find Waldo on an actual map. Hint: You may need to search on the moon...
