The company has integrated, Where is Waldo? game to the Google Maps and asking users to find Waldo.

Where is Waldo? is popular series of children's puzzle book created by an English illustrator Martin Handford. In the puzzle game, the children have to find the missing Waldo and his friends. Using the same scenario Google has created a puzzle game over the map starting from Saturday and will last for a week. While opening the map you will see Waldo waving at you, once you click the character it will take you to the puzzles from the book.

Along with finding the Waldo, the users also need to hunt down his friends including Wenda, Woof, Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw. Once you spotted the Waldo, you need to restart the search and the Map will take you to a new piece of the puzzle. The game is just another addition to the company’s April fool campaign that it pulls off every year.

On 10 March to honor the ‘Mario Day’, the company added a feature that enables the user to create the Mario character while acquiring the navigation using Google Map.
