Waldo and his friends just left Google in California for an awesome adventure.

Upon opening Google Maps, Waldo will appear on the upper left-hand corner of the map. After users click on him, Google Maps will invite them to play the game.
Once the users have begun to play, the old storybook cluttered images will take over the Google Maps screen and players will be asked to hunt for Waldo on the maps, as well as for his friends Woof, Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw.
There are six levels that players can wade through, according to a screenshot, with Waldo moving across the world on the maps over time. Aside from the six opportunities to find Waldo, players have 24 opportunities to find his friends.
Ohh yeah, achievement unlocked.

This is the second time in less than a month that Google has incorporated a beloved brand into Maps for a limited time. In early March, users were able to replace the usual turn-by-turn navigation arrow with Nintendo’s Mario Kart.
