Popular chop ‘em up cum puzzler Slice It! has hit the Android Market, debuting for free today on the GetJar online download store.

Slice It! is a mix of gently cerebral challenges and Fruit Ninja-style blade action that tasks players with solving simple puzzles by swiping their finger across the screen to join dots together or dice up some nice veg. That's it. That's the whole game.
Still, presumably it’s precisely this pick up and play simplicity that’s made it such a hit with casual gamers on the iPhone, claiming the top spot for most downloaded app in September.
Perhaps most interesting to tech watchers is that although the game is on offer from GetJar, it’s not yet in the Android Market.
That makes it the second high-profile game after Angry Birds to launch first on the third-party store rather than Google’s proprietary Android Market, suggesting that devs’ confidence in the search giant’s app shop maybe isn’t all it might be.
Don Lim, General Manager of Slice It! developers Com2us, said: "We’re excited to launch the Android version of Slice It! on GetJar.
“GetJar's global reach as well as their unique App It! download service ensures that we reach a massive audience who loves simple and fun puzzle games.”
