Where's Waldo?: The Fantastic Journey is a The game features two modes: "Party" mode allows players to enjoy a multiplayer search competition of speed and skill, while "Single Traveler" allows for a single player adventure.
The game takes players across 12 strange and unique worlds. Each one is full of quests to complete. The goal is to find Waldo and any hidden items quickly. After every quest players are given a star rank. The better the player performs, the higher their rank will be. If a player achieves a five-star rank, Wizard Whitebeard will present them with a special gift as reward for the highest possible achievement.
The search window displays every character and hidden item that players need to look for. New hidden items will be continuously added here until the end of the quest. Woof aids players in their search for the hidden item currently highlighted in the Search Window. As the player moves the screen, Woof will let them know when you are close to the hidden item. However players must find bones in order to continue using this ability.
After every quest is completed, players return to Waldo's Worlds, the central hub of the game. Entering this area allows players to receive updates from Wizard Whitebeard and Wenda. More importantly, after meeting certain in-game conditions, the next destination is revealed and the journey continues. Each destination appears by its own landmark, identifying each unique world.
