Nyan Cat! is a recently released universal iOS app, which allows players to take control of the latest Internet phenomenon: the Nyan Cat. Currently, the application is available to download for free in the App Store.

In the game, players get to guide the famous kitty as he soars through a starry sky, shooting a rainbow out of his – well, you know. The only mode currently available – “Nyan-Stop” mode – is quite simply an endless flying mode. Players can guide the pixellated cat around the screen, or can just leave their iOS device alone, and watch him fly.

A counter at the bottom of the screen keeps track of how long players have “flown carelessly for,” and these results are logged in a leaderboard via Game Center. Achievements can also be gained, after players have flown for specified amounts of time.

Essentially, there isn’t much to this app. Another character and game mode are listed as “coming soon” – hopefully these will add another dimension to the application. Currently, my best advise is: don’t expect much. If you’re a Nyan Cat fan, the app could provide you with a few seconds or a few hours of fun – depending on how high you want to climb the app’s leaderboard, or how obsessed you are with earning achievements.
