You could have the excitement of smelling a piece of paper as your look over every page of your Scholastic Book order form and decide on Where’s Waldo? maybe in space, maybe on the beach but either way you handed it to the teacher yourself. Now you wait.
On the day the teacher hands out the books and your poster you flip open Waldo and start to find your favorite striped shirt man.
Would you like to not do this and instead on a TV screen, yeah, didn’t think so. This one was released this month in 1991 and although they did an actual ok job at replicating it; it’s a hard pass fro Where’s Waldo? on NES.
“Waldo has a ticket to the Moon and needs the players help to get him to his destination.
Based on the popular Where’s Waldo series of books. Your goal is to find Waldo in various pictures in order to progress through the game.
The pictures are still images the size of the screen in the Easy and Practice levels. In the Medium and Hard levels, the player has to scroll to the side to see the rest of the area. The directional buttons control a magnifying glass and once the player finds Waldo, they get to go to the next level and a new picture.
In the Practice difficulty level, there is no time limit but only the Train Station, Forest and Caves levels are available. The time limit for the other difficulty levels varies: Easy=959, Medium=659, and Hard=459.”
