Garfield: Winter's Tail is a game based on the Jim Davis comic strip, Garfield. It was released in 1989 for Amiga, Atari ST (will not work on Atari STe computers), Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum. It is the fourth video game to be based on Jim Davis' Garfield Comics.
The game is divided into an Action sports game where fast reaction is needed (Skiing & Skating level) and some sort of puzzle game (Chocolate Factory). The player will encounter some familiar faces from the Garfield comics (like Odie and Jon Arbuckle), but the player can control only Garfield. Garfield’s energy meter is pictured with his face from happy to sad, getting sadder by every accident. If he loses too much energy he wakes up (sometimes in fright).
