NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe bringt den weltweit ersten Side-Scroll-Runner für Smartphones und Tablets auf den Markt, der komplett auf Lasagne-Basis läuft


Ja, er ist zur?ck. Garfield, der Lasagne-besessene K?nig der Faulheit, hat endlich einen Weg gefunden, wie er ein paar Kalorien verbrennen kann: Mit Garfield’s Wild Ride , dem verr?ckten Side-Scrolling-Runner f?r Smartphones und Tablets.

Der Titel ist ab sofort f?r 0.89 EUR oder 0.99 US-Dollar in folgenden Stores erh?ltlich:




Leider wird sich die Lauferei in dem Spiel nicht allzu sehr auf Garfields f?llige H?ften auswirken, denn gerannt wird nur in seinen Tr?umen. Denn wenn Garfield nicht gerade von Lasagne tr?umt, stellt er sich nachts vor, wie er federleicht durch die Gegend schwebt, Hindernissen ausweicht und dabei abgefahrene Extras aufsammelt, um am Ende einen fetten Bonus zu kassieren. So schwer man sich das bei Garfields K?rperumfang vorstellen kann: Im Schlaf kann Garfield sogar die Gesetze der Schwerkraft aushebeln.

Garfield’s Wild Ride ?setzt auf eing?ngiges Ein-Finger-Gameplay. So kann Garfield mit Leichtigkeit an m?glichen Hindernissen vorbei und durch 45 unterschiedliche Missionen durch drei liebevoll designte Spiel-Settings geleitet werden. Dabei kann der faule Kater immer wieder abgefahrene Boni aufsammeln: Mal kann Garfield pl?tzlich als Jockey auf einem riesigen Odie reiten, mal findet sich der Stubentiger pl?tzlich mit Helm auf einem Skateboard wieder– all das nimmt der Kater auf sich, um M?nzen einzusammeln, die er f?r neue In-Game-Items eintauschen kann. Per Customizing-System kann Garfield nach Herzenslust neu ausgestattet werden: von verschiedenen Kopfbedeckungen bis hin zum Space-Cat-Outfit ist alles m?glich. Doch genug geredet: Lasst die Lasagne-Spiele beginnen!

Garfield’s Wild Ride ?wird von NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe und Anuman Interactive (unter dem Label Micro?ds– Games for All label) gemeinsam ver?ffentlicht. Der Titel ist ab sofort f?r iPhone, iPad und Android-Ger?te erh?ltlich. Eine PC- und Mac-Version folgen in K?rze.
