Atari 2600 Garfield Desktop Wallpaper

Garfield for the Atari 2600 never got past the prototype phase, but it looked like it would have been a mighty fine game. The welcoming screen alone makes me feel warm inside, so I turned it into a wallpaper.

    As an E.T. apologist, I’m a fan of games where the opening screen is the best part. I’d have bought this.

  2. This garfield game was made in 84. While there are a couple c64 ones, they didn’t come out till around 89. There is a NES one which has somewhat similar graphical style, but it too came out it 89. I suspect that the NES one was a sort of port/reimagining of the 2600 one.
