There is no doubt in my mind that Jim Davis, the creator of the world’s most famous personality, Garfield, intended for him to one day charm his way into serious business gaming ;) Garfield Kart is an obscure racing game centered in the Garfield universe. It is available on iOS, Android, and soon on PC and Mac. I wonder if he will be eating lasagne and making wisecracks as he races along.
Garfield and his friends arrive in a colorful multiplayer racing game, inspired by his world of crazy characters and situations. Eight of the series symbolic characters can join the race: Jon, Nermal, Liz, Odie…and of course, Garfield. The claws come out when it’s time to race, and there are many ways to win with sixteen circuits available, and many possible means to finish first.
On the track, several bonuses are available (8 different bonuses) and have to be picked up in order to get rid of the other pilots, or to protect themselves from them. Throw pies to stop the opponents, use the lasagna booster to drive faster or a spring to reach some hidden passages: everything must be used between two skids to finish first.
The players can select a pilot and a kart according to their driving style. Each of the eight protagonists and the eight karts own specific features:
- maximum speed
- vehicle maneuverability
Accessories are also available to custom pilots and vehicles. Many combinations are possible! The hats and helmets bring special abilities to the pilots, such as the chef’s hat that increases the speed of the pies that are thrown at the opponents. The spoilers make it possible to modify the kart’s features.
At the beginning of the race, different Boosts must be chosen. The Boosts bring significant advantages to steal the victory from the opponents (faster start, two trials to win the race,…). It is up to the player to make the right choices to get ready before the beginning of the race.
Garfield Kart includes four different game modes according to the desired type of challenge:
- Single Race mode - perfect for a quick game
- Grand Prix mode - race on the sixteen circuits
- Time Trial - where the goal is to reach the reference time
- Challenge of the Day - which proposes a challenge every day
