The game is an arcade adventure with platform elements, starring Garfield, who has to rescue his girlfriend Arlene from the cat pound. Garfield starts his quest in Jon's house, and has to venture trough streets, dark alleys and sewers to find Arlene. Various objects are littered along the way, and Garfield meets characters like Odie, Nermal and giant rats, that can help or hinder his quest.
In some versions of the game, the background graphics are only in black and white, with some color in the sprites. In other versions of the game (i.e., the Commodore 64 version), the graphics are in full color.
