Overview

Garfield: Caught in the Act is a 2D side-scrolling platformer developed by Sega InterActive and published by Sega for the Sega Genesis on October 1995. A handheld version was created by Novotrade for the Sega Game Gear on November 1995.

Based on the comic strip of the same name (and loosely based on Garfield: His 9 Lives), Caught in the Act features hand-drawn sprites by the artists at Paws (namely the strip's creator Jim Davis). Players control the eponymous furry feline as he becomes trapped inside his poorly-reassembled television set by a sentient set of spare pieces (known as the Glitch). He must navigate numerous TV shows (representing various points in time) and find a way to escape.

An enhanced version was later developed for PCs (running Windows) by Point of View in March 1996. This version was released exclusively in North America by Expert as part of the Sega PC Collection and was known in the box art as "Garfield: Garfield in TV Land!". This version features redbook audio, enhanced graphics, and a new level arrangement based on the GG version (with a new exclusive level). It was later bundled with Sonic & Knuckles Collection and Baku Baku Animal as the Sonic & Garfield Pack.

In addition, the Genesis version received an exclusive three-level standalone expansion that was digitally distributed through the Sega Channel accessory. Dubbed "Garfield: The Lost Levels", some of these levels appeared in the GG version. As the accessory was discontinued, there is currently no way to play this expansion.

It is the last game developed by the Sega InterActive division.
