Garfield's Wild Ride by Namco Bandai Games Europe $0.99 -> FREE

Bought this on day one. It plays like Jetpack Joyride but it's not addictive at all and the prices in the shop are way too expensive. Game Center is still not working.

I love Garfield. Worth a download just for that.

Yeah I've played it a fair bit but not so much lately. It is fun but it takes forever to upgrade because the price of everything is too high.
Because Garfield is kind of cool I keep it on my device and hope for a meaningful update

Free now. While I love Garfield, I personally prefer Get Fuzzy (I know it can later, and obviously took inspration from Garfield, but I still prefer it)

I love to see a Get Fuzzy game done right!!
I'd still buy it even if it's filled with IAPs!

So they basically went and ripped off Jetpack Joyride. Never mind that Garfield doesn't actually have a Jetpack or anything and it makes no sense at all for him to be floating in the air.

Really, it is precisely this kind of pigheaded, inane mediocrity that needs to be stomped into the ground until no trace remains.

Ummmmmmm +1000! Someone needs to get on that!

I named a squad in Breach and Clear after the main characters. I love Get Fuzzy.

Ahaha... they made this a "dream sequence" but yeah, they can only come up with a ridiculous premise just to be able to copy Jetpack Joyride...
