The lasagna-loving lord of laziness, Garfield, has finally found a way to run off some of those calories in Garfield’s Wild Ride, the crazed side-scrolling runner out now on smartphones and tablets.
Unfortunately for Garfield’s waistline, all this running isn’t going to do him much good, as it all happens when he’s fast asleep. It turns out that when he’s not dreaming of lasagna, Garfield imagines himself hurtling through the air light as a feather in a world loaded with cat gymnastics, loony pick-ups and batty bonuses. Unlikely as it sounds, in his dreams Garfield can defy gravity.
Garfield’s Wild Ride offers accessible single-finger gameplay to guide Garfield through a series of treacherous obstacles as players tackle 45 different missions across 3 radically different environments. Unlikely bonus pickups include jockeying a giant Odie or donning a helmet for a spin on a skateboard, with the option to purchase coins for extra in-game items. Garfield can also be fully customized in wild ways from dashing hats to space-cat, with more costumes available to buy in-game and coming in future updates. Jettison lasagna – it’s time to lift off!
Co-published by Namco Bandai Games Europe and Anuman Interactive (under Microïds – Games for All label), Garfield’s Wild Ride is available now from iTunes for iPhone, iPad and Google Play for Android devices priced at £0.69 ($0.99/€0.89) . The game is also coming soon to PC and Mac.
