Well, remember that meme with the silly creature that was part cat, part poptart, all rainbow farting? Well someone in their right mind decided to make said meme into a game. In honesty, I didn’t know what to say. The titular cat-poptart creature and the iconic music is there…and then more. You of course would think ‘this is just like Techno Kitten Adventure’, I have that, would I want to spend 240 Microsoft points for a knock off?
Well for one thing, this game despite the bright almost seizure inducing color changes and effects it is not the same. The music never deviates from the iconic Nyan Cat song (and a few remixes). But the game while a side scroller also is trippy. It doesn’t just toss barrier after barrier at you. The game’s speed, the style of play (flying, plat forming etc.) changes on the fly. Every time the play style of the game changes, the music warps and the background gets progressively more distorted from super saturated color to full out negative colors. To counter the plausibly seizure inducing changes is the quick responsiveness of the controls. The controls shift naturally whether you are floating or jumping. Now many indie games are 80 or so points, but this game is indeed 240 Microsoft points. This may put off many who are interested. But the demo is not only downloadable, but allows for continuous play. So you can play as long as you wish to see rainbows and nyan cats.
