Garfield's girlfriend Arlene has been captured and
thrown into the city pound, and now it's up to the fat,
lazy, lasagne-loving cat to go rescue her. If he can be
bothered that is.. It is Monday after all, and that
usually means our hero does what he does best - sleeping
and eating. Garfield by The Edge is a very good
adventure game with great graphics and sound. The
puzzles are quite simple to work out, but are made
difficult by the fact that our hero Garfield is likely
to consume the contents of his inventory at any given
time, whether it be a bone, tin can, a trowel or a
newspaper. You have to constantly feed the feline
between tasks to ensure that this doesn't happen or the
quest will come to a premature end. The game features a
lot of the characters from the Garfield cartoons & books
- Jim, Odie, Nermal, Arlene and of course Garfield
himself. The game is quite short, but it's a very
finds the key to escape...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using tips from the internet and a bit of patience.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you finally get to the pound with the key, Garfield
can unlock Arlene's cage. Once she is released and
Garfield approaches her the game is complete. A message
of congratulations is shown which says that this Monday
didn't turn out so bad after all, and that Arlene will
be forever grateful. Garfield is also shown walking back
and forth at the bottom of the screen. On pressing the
fire button the game restarts.

I used to like the newspaper cartoon strip ( I read it
on my paper round all those years ago!) but anything
else to do with Garfield sucks in my opinion. This game
wasn't bad and neither was the ending, but it never
captured the 'feeling' cartoon strip for me...
- Andrew Fisher:
Not a bad game, not a bad ending... just a bit humdrum.
I do like Garfield.
- Brendan Phoenix:
Never into Garfield either - wonder what happended to
all those Garfield's stuck to the back of car windows?
I do like the Garfield sprite on this game though but
the ending pretty so so.
- Gaz Spence:
The ending's pretty clunky if truth be told and I don't
like cats. 3 out of 10.
short ending to a short, but enjoyable game.
