''{{Garfield}}: Caught in the Act'' is a PlatformGame was released by Creator/{{Sega}} in 1995 for the SegaGenesis to [[CashCowFranchise cash in]] on the success of Jim Davis's comic strip, ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}''. The sprites were hand-drawn by Davis and his group of artists. Which is quite impressive considering the hardware of the Genesis.

* Cave Cat 3,000,000 B.C.: {{Prehistoria}}. Garfield is a sabre-toothed fat cat. Highlights include jumping up to avoid the broccoli falling down a cheese waterfall. The boss is an Odiesaurus, naturally and is {{g|ameBreakingBug}}litchy (at least in the Genesis version). (arguably inspired by "Cave Cat" segment of ''GarfieldHis9Lives'', in which the dog is named... [[FluffyTheTerrible Big Bob]])

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted, actually. Unlike in most cases, ''Garfield'''s own creator Jim Davis along with his group of artists lent Sega a hand in creating the game, mainly the sprite art and comic strip segments, and the result was a fairly solid platforming game, GameBreakingBug on the Genesis notwithstanding. Impressive for something that was [[DownloadableContent half-finished on launch]].

''Garfield: The Lost Levels'', a pack of downloadable extra levels, was available through the Genesis online service, called the Sega Channel. Chances of seeing them again [[LostForever are dim by now]].


Added DiffLines:

* BigCreepyCrawlies: The Glitch manifests as a giant robotic insect.
* BulletHell: The final boss starts firing gradually more energy beams as it takes more damage, gradually resulting this trope near the end of the fight.


Added DiffLines:

* DownloadableContent: Possibly one of the earliest examples in gaming. ''Garfield: The Lost Levels'', a pack of downloadable extra levels, was available through the Genesis online service, called the Sega Channel. Chances of seeing them again [[LostForever are dim by now]], sadly.


Added DiffLines:

* TennisBoss: Indirect example, but you have to align the mirrors in the final boss fight so its own shots bounce back at it. Borders on invoking RubeGoldbergHatesYourGuts with how many mirrors you need by the end.
