As someone who grew up in the '80s thinking the Garfield comic strip was the cat's whiskers, it's heartening to see that two terrible movies can't keep a good moggy down.
In this action and tower defence hybrid, the chubby feline gets a chance to flex his underused muscles against hordes of aliens intent on stealing his beloved food.
It might not be an obvious match of gameplay design to source material, but the colourful characters, frantic action, and online battling will be lapped up by fans.
The meek shall inherit squat
The titular cat is enjoying a well-earned break from, erm, sitting around and eating lasagne, when his globetrotting holiday is interrupted by The Food Invaders – bizarre-looking E.T.s with ravenous appetites.
It's not the deepest strategy title out there, and the scrappy multiplayer adds little to the sequel, but Garfield devotees of any generation will enjoy the sharp artwork and light-hearted action
