I used to love the Where's Waldo books when my son was small. Thought I'd like this but it takes too long between segments and it gets very boring quickly. Maybe on the kid level it would go faster. I uninstalled it.

YUCK! Yikes! What a wreck of a game! LOL! Lately when I've been hesitant to play a game I've been wrong and turns out to be a pretty good game but I was definitely hesitant to play this and wish I would of stuck with my instincts as it's definitely one of the worst and most BORING games I've ever played. Very poor graphics as everbody as you're finding "people" look just about exactly the same. Pretty much had to use hints which were hardly none as you have a dog that is suppose to help you along and have to find bones for the dog which I had a hard time locating any. I found I believe maybe 2. Oh about 15 to 20 minutes of this game was about all I could tolerate. This definitely goes under my "Stop the madness, cut this off, and pull the plug already. You may love this game but definitely not for me. Sorry Gamehouse but this game is just boring,boring, boring.
I didn't last long on this one before dumping it. I am deaf, and the wizard and Waldo both move their lips for what seems to be an eternity before and after each level. I'm assuming they are talking, but there is no option to turn on captions. Most games have captions built in, or pages to read as you go through the game. I would think that should be standard as you might be somewhere where you would not want your computer to make a lot of noise and attract attention while you are playing!! I don't recommend this at all.
When I saw the game available for download, I was really excited! I think reading all the "Where's Waldo" books as a child started my obsession with Hidden Object games. However, I was slightly disappointed in the game. It had all the characters, and was very cute, but not what I expected. Most of the game shows you a silhouette to find, and it also directs you to the part of the scene you should be looking in. I was hoping it would be like the books, and be one big expansive scene to look through with funny little descriptions of what you're supposed to look for. There are a few instances of that, but not as many as I'd hoped. I didn't try the "kids" skill level of the game, but I'm guessing it isn't timed, or something like that, and I'm sure it's kid friendly, since the regular skill level is pretty kid friendly anyway. This would probably be a good game for a family, but it's no replacement for the books.
I thought this was going to be a fun, different game. After about 5 minutes I was bored. Kids might like it, but I did not

I played this with my nephew for awhile and I was bored by the 3rd scene; he got bored after the 6th or so. There just isn't much variety when it comes to mini-games, challenges, etc. -- it's all about finding Waldo. The books are just as good as this game. My nephew and I both liked it; we just wished it could have been more entertaining!

This HOG has a different method - often you are looking for shapes to match the silhouette clues rather than the objects themselves. I agree it would help to have written as well as audio narration, especially since the audio is very British and quite unclear. Ironically, the ultimate search for each level, the scroll, is often the easiest to find. The game starts each screen with three tasks to find Waldo, his friend, and you guide - much like the original WW games. Many screens ask you to find multiples of the same object. Here's a couple of clues: be sure to look for bones to find your dog - they are hints. Also, many of the silhouettes are fixed snaps of figures actually moving on the screen. Sometimes you get the chance to collect gold stars - never figured out how to do that (perhaps it's automatic?) Good feature is you get to repeat a screen if you don't collect 3 stars. Excellent graphics; loading screens takes a while, but the music is nice. Seems like a good games for and/or with kids (there's a special kids level)All in all, some original twists; with a little more tweaking , it could be a very good game. Try it!
I used to love the Waldo books so much when I was younger, and I had hoped this would be the same idea, but it wasn't at all. I feel that the timer on this game made it so awful. Where's Waldo was always known for being relaxing and taking your time to look at a whole scene to find an item, but I felt so rushed in this game. You barely get any time at all, and even the kids mode has a timer. I only played the trial of this but had I paid for it I would have felt very ripped off as the timer forces you to fly through this game in a couple hours. I'd love for them to release a second version, with a no-timer option and the ability to view the entire photo and zoom in and scroll around it yourself by mouse.
