When browsing through the Steam store I came across a random game that got my attention. The colorful picture caught my eye, but is it really worth the money?
Nyan Cat: Lost In Space is a game in which you jump on platforms to collect food and try to avoid evil objects like UFOs or the evil Tac Nayn (That’s Nyan Cat backwards). The game is developed and published by isTom Games Kft.
Unleash the cat in all of us
There are alot of things to do in Nyan Cat. The Main Menu alone already shows the following options:
- Play Missions
- Pat Your Nyangotchi
- Create Your Own Nyan Cat
There are some other options in the Main Menu as well, but those only show the store and the achievements to collect. When you click on Missions the game will show your currents missions. These are just 3 assignments to complete in the next level you play.
In “Pat Your Nyangotchi” you have to take care of a Nyan Cat. This is a Tamagotchi like system, which can be fun for a few hours/days before you forget to feed him for several years.

Almost all games are the same, you jump from one platform to another and hope you will not fall. The only exception is Nyan Wings in which you use spacebar to make speed and try to fly as far as possible.
May the force be with you
What the game does right is the possibility to costumize almost everything. You can change the cat yourself by drawing something new or applying a skin.
All ingame items that I have seen can be bought with ingame currency. There are no microtransactions as far as I know in this game.
There isn’t really much left to say about this game. The game is a mobile port and can be downloaded in the Google App store for free. So is it worth the money to buy the game on Steam? You can just install the game on PC using a third party program to play Android games, but you have to resist the microtransactions.
JosWeb Score (0/100):
It’s a fun game to play for a few minutes and after that you kinda get bored with it. The game is working good and there are no bugs or any other problems. The developer(s) really did a good job on creating this game, but sadly it’s not a game I would pay money for. Like I said above, the Android version is free, so I wonder why the Steam version costs money.
There is a mute option in the options menu. I used that option after 15 minutes of playing, because the song was starting to get annoying.
I hope to see more from isTom Games Kft. in the future and hopefully that game will have a larger soundtrack than just that one song.
