How do you navigate? Am I supposed to watch dolefully each time as my Nyancat hurtles over a cliff with no way to prevent it?

Leeks.

Which are worse. I'm a big fan of the onion family but maaaaan.

Fuck leeks.

Unless they have been pureed into a soup.

Oh man, the sad little "nyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan" when kitteh falls short of a platform is heart-rending.

Leeks have a special connection to Hatsune Miku the vocaloid who "sings" nyan cat. Check out the fans waving glowing leeks at a concert.

Extra Bonus Trivia: Nyan-Nyan is meow in Japanese.

The Whelk: And they never heard from Katullus again.

Seriously, do you ever come across some pop-culture item that is so improbable that you think this may have been created just for you, and no one else? That's how I felt when I saw Nyanicorn.

Nerdishness: Robot Unicorn Attack was broken in some ways that allowed the player to string together a bunch of dashes and leaps without ever touching the ground. That is sadly not possible in Nyanicorn. Anyway, back to the game...

Oh you can totally just fly forever into nothingness on Robot Unicorn Attack. It's not a bug, it's magical sky leaping mode.
