'Garfield and His Nine Lives' (GBA) Goes Gold

by Rainier on March 20, 2006 @ 10:12 a.m. PST

One evening just before bed time Garfield goes on one of his beloved eating benders. That night he faces the consequences as he endures a night full of strange dreams. These dreams and, in some case, nightmares, take Garfield and the player on 9 unique adventures based on the cat's 9 “lives”!

The Garfield game features nine different levels, each with its own song and multiple objectives. There are also hidden areas and detailed graphics to provide a rich backdrop for Garfield's quests. Three difficulty levels add to the challenge and provide hours of replayable action as everyone~s favorite feline acts fast to survive his adventures.

Executive Producer William Baffy comments, "We wanted to emulate the fun platforming titles of the classic Super Nintendo and Genesis systems, while still maintaining the style and humor of the Garfield comic strips."

The game features over 160 frames of animation for Garfield, giving him the ability to jump, kick, climb ladders, crawl, and shimmy across monkey bars. Garfield's kickable pal Odie makes an appearance, as does the world~s cutest kitten, Nermal. With 19 unusual enemies - among them pie-throwing monkeys, angry carrots, and an oversized alley cat with designs on rolling Garfield flat - the game will challenge players of all ages.

Garfield and His Nine Lives will be released to stores worldwide in April 2006.
