Was there a Waldo game made for the Famicom? He may have even been a big hit there...

Doc

The best things are the books, however. ;D

The Great Waldo Search is better than Where's Waldo, but that's not saying much. They both suck pretty bad. The Great Waldo Search might have actually been a half decent game if it had more levels. It only has something like 5 levels and can be beaten in about 5 minutes.

I like the books. But that is because they look great and unfortunately the games don't.

Yeah, it's really only a long running joke with my friends about Waldo. We've made up theories about where he is now.

Yeah, we were bored.

why would u have spent your hard earned money on that game, now that its cheap it doesnt really matter, but once you found him theres no challenge therefore being no replay value

Good point -- no reply value. The same with the books. Once you find the fucker, that's the end of the fun -- at least until your memory fails you and you've forgotten where he is.

That's the problem - the developers didn't take advantage of video game potential.  They could have made Waldo be randomly placed at a different spot each time.

Which is why it's a total waste of money if you had bought it in 1989...new.
