If you love to see the irascible feline Garfield battling it out on the race track while using different antics to distract his opponent, then you just had your Christmas wish granted a little bit earlier. Garfeld Kart: Fast and Furry is now available for Android devices, so you can enjoy racing around the track while at the same time, see characters from the comics strip that you’ve grown to love (or even hate).
The multi-player racing game lets you choose to be one of eight characters, including the titular cat, Odie, Nermal, Jon or Liz, each with their own karts and specific abilities and features like acceleration, maneuverability, maximum speed, etc. The game has sixteen circuits available, where you have to try to be the fastest driver while taking out your opponents by some mature tactics, like throwing pie in their faces. You can also upgrade and accessorize both the car and the pilot. Along the way, you also get to pick up bonuses to help you get past the other drivers, like a pie-throwing power or a lasagna booster to make you faster.
There are four different game modes, depending on what you’d like to play that day. Single Race Mode is for when you just want a quick painless game. The Grand Prix mode is when you want to finish racing through all the sixteen circuits. Time Trial mode is when you have to beat the referenced time as you race. Meanwhile, there is also the Challenge of the Day where, obviously, you have to try and finish the challenge set for that day. The game has around 80 goals that you need to complete, like getting the longest skid or throw certain number of pies to your opponents. Because it’s Garfield, we keep coming back to pies.
Garfield Kart: Fast and Furry is available for free download from the Google Play Store. However, there are in-app purchases available to make your gameplay easier but you can disable the feature as well if you don’t want to spend so easily on this game.
