In the world of comic strips, the annual performance known as Fun Fest is coming up. Garfield plans to participate, but finds his routine in jeopardy when he loses his sense of humor and Arlene falls in with a suave new star known as Ramone. As a result, Garfield (with Odie by his side) sets off to find a magic pond that can make him funny again.
This Video Game contains examples of:
- Adaptational Nice Guy: Garfield comes off substantially nicer here, especially when it comes to his interactions with Odie.
- Collection Sidequest: Dingle balls, which are collected during the Odie-riding stages.
- Cut-and-Paste Environments: Some of the platforming levels are repeated.
- Defeat Equals Explosion: Played with: enemies defeated by Garfield disappear in a puff of smoke. That even includes mail carriers.
- Licensed Game: This game is based off the Garfield comic strip.
- Off-Model: The animation quality is often questionable.
- Sprint Meter: Garfield has an energy meter, which depletes even from walking, let alone jumping. It is only replenished by eating food.
- Take That!: The plot of the game sounds like the developers are making fun of how the comic strip has lost its sense of humour.
- Video Game Flight: There are flying stages, which control similarly to the Odie-riding stages.
- Wizard Needs Food Badly: In play on every level except the rhythm stages. Garfield will steadily lose energy and you must get food to replenish it. If he runs out of food, he falls asleep, and you then take control of Odie, and must find an alarm clock in order to wake him up.
