We're slowly creeping up in rank all around the world! So far nearly 800 players are ranking in the leaderboards, and the top 25 cumulative combined distance traveled is over 11 million meters!

Thanks again for everyone's support! Stay tuned for a very very special holiday announcement...

Lol I'm enjoying the heck out of this! I'll write a review when I'm 'bothered' somewhere in the near future.

Right now, I have a few complaints:
1. Music automatically restarts when you retry a stage. I tend to play high risky style so I die a lot and consequently hear the same intro of the songs a lot. Please make the music loop forever without restarting when I retry a stage.
2. When the player reaches somewhere like 10000 meters, the game literally throws an impenetrable wall of whatever obstacles at you to spell certain death. The thing is, it's inescapable and just feels downright cheap. How about just increasing the overall speed that the cat is traveling at instead of throwing more obstacles to the amount of unfair?
3. An SFX and BGM on/off option. I use a separate music player (see my sig) that does not interfere with other tasks. The game uses the iOS music player which I find to be obsolete so yeah, I refuse to use it. A BGM off option would've allowed me to listen to music and play the game with SFX at the same time.

I'm getting a big delay the first time the app asks me for music. Happens every time I close the app and reopen it. Otherwise, a pretty fun game

i'm a pretty kitty cat

I take it this means that the IAP unlocks characters that can otherwise be unlocked through gameplay? If so, you will get no money from me until I've unlocked them all on my own. While IAP to unlock stuff is probably a boon for those that do not wish to work towards unlockables, bundling content unlocks with NEW content in the same IAP (seemingly a new iOS trend) is one of the most effective ways to scare off those of us who wants our games to last, and who wish to actually have stuff to work towards

Ayjona,

I appreciate the feedback. Yes, you can unlock the heroes through in-game achievements, Grid Cat is the only "exclusive" incentive to the IAP.

We plan on adding free unlocks alongside new content updates in the future. We wanna make a good name for ourselves, and the first step is ensuring our fanbase is happy and that we are listening and addressing their concerns.

We're looking into an integrated polling system so players can vote on what the next Hero will be, what new features take priority, what new playmode makes the cut, and a direct way to provide us feedback and suggestions to improve the NYAN 3D experience.

Hey gunxsword! Glad to hear you're enjoying the game! To answer some of your concerns:

1. This will be fixed in the next update.
2. We're looking into a special ability to help players survive the occasional asteroid wall. The Procedural A.I. shifts the % balance of different sized asteroids to provide more dynamic encounters and situations during the mid/endgame.
3. We'll be adding a 3rd audio toggle option for "SFX Only" in the next update.

Yup you're absolutely correct. All but one cat (Tron bicycle) can be unlocked in normal gameplay by completing objectives such as travel x meters, achieve x near misses and collect x coins etc. All are cumulative.

I shelled out my dollar without considering the unlocks because the game just blew me away.
------------------------------------------------
To da devs:
Can you remove that tutorial screen before every game that I start with a new character? I think my 8 year old cousin can figure out the controls without even viewing the tutorial screen.

It's actually quite offensive and juvenile, to remind the player everytime that the LEFT HALF of the screen makes your character go up and the RIGHT HALF goes down.
