This game makes me want to scream! It's not actually
a bad game; it's just that it took me ages to
beat and then I found a version with a loadable ending
that would have saved me hours of pain.
game is split into three parts: Downhill ski-ing, the
chocolate egg factory and the frozen lake. You can play
any part at any time, but they must be completed in
order to see the ending. The graphics are great and all
parts play well, especially the final part. It's more a
case of working out what to do in this game, rather than
doing it. Once you get the idea it's quite simple. You
will need to know your way around the levels, which can
be confusing, so you need to put the time in if you are
to beat this game. Overall it's an original game that's
great fun. It looks great and is quite a challenge with
a lot of variety. Check it out...

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played it for hours and finally mastered it.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
At the end of the final level you find the chicken stuck
in the broken ice of the frozen lake. An ending sequence
loads up once you reach the helpless creature. It shows
Garfield walking past the chicken to the village. He
passes a ski shop before entering a cabin. He opens a
panel on the wall and ducks into it before appearing
with a rubber glove attached to his head. Garfield
returns to the compound where the chicken is stood. He
wanders towards a small chicken wearing the glove on his
head and a large grin. His grin turns to a frown as the
chickens grown in numbers to prevent him from getting at
the chicken he had his eye on. (This is my
interpretation of events of course).
