Product Description

Garfield's Nightmare is a 2.5D side-scroller that features platforming gameplay with gorgeous graphics. See your favorite fat feline, Garfield; trapped in lasagna, pizza and donut induced nightmares. A severe case of over-indulgence before bed leads to a dream so bad he can't wake up without piecing together his smashed alarm clock to free him from his fretful slumber. The goal for each level is to travel from one side of the game world to the other. In-between this, you'll need to collect various items and kill bad guys that generally pose little threat to your progression. Enemies and crazy challenges litter your path so think fast and play smart to save the day and night for Garfield. Help Garfield maintain his energy level by collecting lots of tasty food throughout the game including donuts, and of course, lasagna

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving it October 3, 2007
By Ezri
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game its fun and easy enough for someone who's completely horrible at games like I am to actually make it past the first level. Really good gamers will probably find this game an easy play but its so much like Mario and so much funnier in that you collect donuts and pizza that is should keep even them coming back for more. Nintendo magazine also rated it an 7.0 so I can't be the only one who thinks its fun with lasting quality.

A note for cat owners though, you might want to play the game with the cats out of the room or like me you'll end up with two kittens sitting on your lap trying to figure out how to get the injured kitten out of the funny box in your hand. It was cute but they got me killed quite a few times. ^_~

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable game for young kids! November 11, 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So you know, I am an adult gamer.

I was amazed how nice & colorful the graphics were. The backgrounds are pretty to look at. I've seen too many games in 2D so this game is in 3D so it was a nice change.

Garfield moves gracefully. At the beginning, they tell you how to make his moves, what to do and guide you through the level, helping you to get to know the game. You collect coins, pizza and donuts for lives. You also have to beat a boss at the end of each level.

There is absolutely no stylus usage in this game which is fine. Some games require it whereas this one doesn't. This game is 3D platformer like Yoshi's Island for the DS. There is only one direction he can go to. No confusion. Or maps to remember. (I have no sense of direction so this game is great for me) Just make Garfield go and collect items on the way from beginning to end of each level.

My sons also like the game too. (7 and 9 yrs old) So it is great for everyone. (even for adults like me who feel like playing an relaxing game) It's not highly challenging at all. A 5 year old could do it. I haven't gone far yet but I'm loving it so far!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that BAD!!!!! September 30, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed this game alot. These sleeper hit type games always get released and nobody ever knows about it cause nobody ever reviews it or buys it. Well i brought it cause i thought for 19.99 you cant go that wrong. This turned out 2 be a good game and i enjoyed it alot. Its an action adventure game just like Mario. And its setup just like The New Super Mario game where its 3D characters but you only move 2D. Overall i am very pleased i brought the game and hope this helps other gamers shed some light on a game that most likely will go unnoticed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great side scrolling game!! January 16, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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. I thought the bosses were very easy to beat; you only have to hit them 3 times and it's not hard to do at all. Good game for Garfield lovers and kids!!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Me an my sister are addicted to this game. It has so many levels to it. It is hard to get bored. Between the two of us we have over twenty Nintendo DS games and this is by far the most enjoyable.

This game is also challenging and stimulating for adults and definitely deserves the E for Everyone rating.

I highly recommend it for Garfield fans. He looks so cute crawling, reaching, jumping, etc.

A Kid's Review
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Garfield's Nightmare is a real fun game. It is just kinda hard. I know what to do and everything. It is good for 8 and up. I am 9 years old and i understand it perfectly. If you loose nine lives then you have to start over.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have bought almost 30 games, since last Christmas. Most of our games...we get bored with after a while, turn around to sell them used on Ebay. However, this game is a keeper. My 5 year old and myself, cannot get enough of this game. It's so adorable and the 3-D is awesome. The graphics are so creative and neat to look at. As a non-gamer mom, I was able to pass all levels of this game (after some practice), however my child, who is 5, has a hard time getting past some of the games in the advance levels (the cloud-land and snow-land). There are no directions that have to be read, the game is pretty much self explanitory and the directions are within the game. Also, for those of you not familiar with this game, the style of the game is like Mario Brothers and Princess Peach (kind of, sort of), but easier. If you have a child 5-10, for sure buy this game for them. Each land has 5 levels. There are 4 sections/lands. Fist, Garfield goes through the scary Castle to fight off ghost and spiders, bats and more. There are secret passages through the entire game too. Each level has a secret door and a secret life. For example, level 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 all have the secret door, where you can earn more lives. Plus, there is always a secret area, where you can find a Garfield token, that will earn a new life too. You need to explore all jumps and doorways to find them. After you pass all 5 levels, you will then continue to lavaland (again, another 5 levels), then off to cloudland, finally to snow (winterland). You'll want to collect as many donuts as possible, since 100 of them, will earn Garfield a new life. Also, eating the pizza will prolong Garfield's life. Coins will get you into the secret door, so make sure you grab them all. So much fun!!
