The treasure hunt on Garfield GO includes fishing for buried treasure and also Garfield s comic collection. There s a catch though, which isn t surprising and will probably frustrate users. To start your treasure hunt, you have to first succeed in trying to get Garfield off the couch. This can be done by enticing Garfield with his favorite foods, which include lasagna, pizza, donut, and cake. The game is also accompanied by Garfield s audio, voiced by the late Lorenzo Music which can be heard on this video by Duck, The Pirate below, where the cat just keeps meowing in the laziest manner.

Garfield GO, as explained by The Verge will have Garfield popping up in augmented reality when you tap on a coin. Garfield will go ahead with retrieving a treasure chest only if it is offered food in its bowl. The video above shows how you have to swipe the screen to throw the food on Garfield s bowl, which is much like catching a creature on Pok mon GO. Also, it isn t easy to feed Garfield and the annoying cat will give you only three chances, after which you will have to search for a treasure chest all over again. The frustration of finding Garfield can be seen in the same video shared above. ALSO READ: Assassin s Creed Origins to Far Cry 5: 5 games Ubisoft announced at E3 2017
