Weâ€™re glad Namco-Bandai didnâ€™t pick Pac-Man to star in an endless runner – we find it slightly disturbing that the yellow fellow somehow sprouted limbs, not to mention that giant nose.
Instead, the publisher has picked good old Garfield for a spot of never-ending running. Perhaps not the most obvious character to headline such a game. Then again, the fat feline could do with shifting a few pounds, so maybe thereâ€™s an underlying message here for cat owners to give their pets more exercise.
Garfieldâ€™s Wild Ride is set inside the moggyâ€™s dreams, hence why the trailer shows Garfield dressed in superhero garb, riding a giant Ode and leaping around on a skateboard.
Controls have been kept purposely simple – tapping the screen is all thatâ€™s required to guide Garfield out of harm’s way. Scores can be added to Facebook in order to pester your friends, while the addition of a randomised prize wheel should help to give it that all-important addictive streak.
