This Garfield-themed time management and city building game must have been pretty lazy to launch, coming a long time after releases of popular iOS games based on The Simpsons, Family Guy or The Flintstones. However, we all love the lazy, lasagna-loving cat and I am sure you are already having a ton of fun playing the game. And I am here to help make that experience even better by sharing with you a bunch of Garfield: Survival of the Fattest cheats and tips for a perfect strategy when it comes to unlocking all areas and characters and turning Garfield into the fattest, laziest cat in the world.

So let’s not waste any time and get this started with some Garfield: Survival of the Fattest tips and tricks for iOS players!

1. Build everything you can ASAP
Quests are relatively slow in the game and waiting to complete them will cost you money. So as soon as you have enough coins, build everything you can from the market: Start with the Buildings, then plant a few trees and crops (you can start with 2-3 of each) and you’ll already have the coin-producing machine ready, giving you the much needed gold to keep Garfield happy.

2. Don’t clean the debris
Removing trees, rocks and other obstacles is insanely expensive, so don’t make that a priority early on. Instead, build up everything and upgrade as much as you can, unlock all the new areas and place the buildings wherever they fit. Give it a while to have solid bank account before removing all the debris and setting up the city as you want it to be.

3. Not all decorations are useless
Even though most of them are nothing but a waste of space, some of them are useful as characters can interact with them. Just see if there’s an icon of one of the game’s characters under the decoration – if it is, it means that it can be used for a specific action (which means more money for you!)

4. Get free lasagnas
There are multiple ways to get free lasagnas and you should make sure to take advantage of them all: play the minigame, feed Garfield until he breaks the scale, complete Awards and watch videos for free lasagnas. The more you have, the better, so make sure you don’t lose any opportunity at free lasagnas!

5. Don’t forget about the minigame
The bug-squashing mini game is not only really fun, but will also reward you with a ton of coins and free lasagna. You can play it every 6 hours, so do your best to play it at least twice per day. It offers a massive advantage, especially early on in the game.

6. Always produce water
Water is for leveling up your crops and trees and you will never have too much water – so make sure you’re always producing some. I personally prefer to go for the longest option available in order to get more water – and it’s also cheaper!

7. Constantly upgrade your trees and crops
These are the items that you can collect constantly from and it’s a win-win situation: you get both coins and calories to fill up the scale and get free lasagnas. Make sure you upgrade your trees and crops constantly, and have them maxed out at all times. Remember: if you have any water left, it means that you’re not upgrading your trees and crops enough!

8. Be patient
There are some really long waiting times involved when it comes to this game, but you should be patient. Save your Lasagnas for unlocking all the goodies in the game, like recipes and new characters and don’t worry about using them to rush production. Be just like Garfield: lazy, and you’ll soon get pretty far in the game!
