Nyan Cat FLY!
Do you Nyan? You will after playing Krang Games' bizarre and addictive little arcade game Nyan Cat FLY! You may have originally felt the space-faring, rainbow-extruding pop-tart cat's hypnotic pull in a Link Dump Friday article earlier this year, but Nick Yonge, developer, has sent us a batch of special cheat codes that have various strange effects and we wanted to revisit the phenomenon and share them all with you. Why? To celebrate 4 MEEELION PLAYS of the game, and because if my productivity must fall, then so too shall yours.
Controls are simple; use the [arrow] keys to guide Nyan Cat to all the "yummies" (candies and sweets) while avoiding all the vegetables. Fill up your OmNomNometer by eating as many yummies as you can in a row for a bonus, but hit three vegetables and you'll run out of happiness and it's game over for you. Repeat until you get the highest score, or until your significant other screams "I CAN'T TAKE IT" and tries to wrestle the laptop from you in a violent coup to turn off the music.
The Nyan Cat is one of those weird internet cultural things that even Know Your Meme, which I had to consult to write this article, can't make sound coherent, but those who like it embrace it hard. Nyan Cat FLY! is an incredible simple little arcade game that doesn't have a whole lot of depth, but makes up for it with relentless cheer, cuteness, and easy addictive gameplay. The new codes do a variety of things, ranging from reversing the playing field, to putting different costumes on your Nyan, to disabling the rainbow. (BLASPHEMY.) You'll have to be wily and weird to figure them out... or, you know, just check the comments below. There isn't a whole lot to be said about Nyan Cat FLY!; you either love it or you don't, and chances are that by now your mind has been made up. But if you're already on the Nyan Bandwagon, then another excuse to nyannyannyannyan until your eyes glaze over is probably all you needed.

Comprehensive Cheat Codes List
Type any of the following codes on the keyboard while in any of the game's front-end menus. A notification popup should appear on screen notifying you of a successful cheat input.
There are two types of codes: CHEATS and OUTFITS. CHEATS can be turned on and off, and must be reactivated whenever the player returns to the main menu after a game-over (though will stay activated if selecting Play Again from Game Over).
