Summary: As a child I used to "borrow" the comics from my dad's newspaper to see the Garfield comic and I also used to watch the cartoon every Saturday, so I am a big fan. At 24 years old, I am still a huge fan of Garfield. When I saw that there was a video game, I skeptical that it would make a good gaming experience, because, really, all he did was eat, sleep and insult Odie and Jon.
Summary: I love this game! The backgrounds are very rich and nice to look at, the music is cute and it isn't too easy to complete. It took me a few days of playing for 45-60 minutes at a time. Garfield moves great, but sometimes it seems he gets stuck under things and you have to turn around to get back out. You have to collect pizza slices for life and doughnuts are like coins in the Mario games. For every 100, you get an extra life.
Summary: This is a terrific game! The graphics are fantastic.....Garfield looks exactly as he does in the comics and the scenery is cute too (the stained glass windows in the castle have pooky on them :) ) The game play does not involve the stylus.....it is just jumping and kicking and pushing objects, like a Mario game. There are clues along the way to help you through each level to the checkpoints.
Summary: Loved this game! I like simple action-adventure, "Mario-like" games and puzzles. There is nothing new in this game, but it was fun to play. Graphics are good. Music is not annoying. Levels get progressively more challenging. Plus, it's Garfield! Who doesn't love Garfield? I also played "Garfield's Fun Fest" and found Nightmare to be much more entertaining. If you are trying to decide between the two, go with Nightmare.
