Just when we finally got the Nyan Cat song out of our heads, here comes another spin-off game inspired by the YouTube viral video. This time Nyan Cat sings its never-ending infectious tune while racking up a high score in this side-scrolling jump game. Nyan Cat is hungry from all that singing and you’ll need to jump from platform to platform whilst gathering foodz and drinkz for the internet phenom.
The power ups in this Doodle Jump like game took us by surprise. Of course there is the not uncommon rocket, multiplyer and flying power ups. But there are two that stood out, way way out. One powerup is a joint that gets Nyan Cat high, not only changing his appearance to a green raggae cat, but it also makes the screen a bit wavy and slow moving. In addition, there is a pill that gives NC super speed while causing a hallucination of a giant version of himself moving about on the screen.
In addition to playing as Nyan Cat there is the Bizarro of the Nyan Cat world, Tac Nyan. Similiarly when Tac Nyan picks up the Superman powerup he turns into a flying Darth Vader.
Overall this is a fun high-score jumping game for all ages. Be warned, the biggest challenge is to keep playing while the Nyan Cat song loops for infinity. The initial game only comes with one level, currently there are two more which can be purchased individually for $.99 . Other in-app purchases include Movie, Nationality and Profession skins, each pack costing $.99
