Previously only available in the iTunes app store, the classic puzzler has finally made its way into the Android Market, and can be had for a mere 99 cents. It's just as fun as it was back in the day, and lucky for us, today's touch-screen interface hasn't slowed it down a bit. In fact, we think the swipe gesture actually lends itself quite well to the game.

In ChuChu Rocket, your objective is to guide hordes of frantic mice (ChuChus) to their rocket ship by dropping arrowed tiles on the ground. As the mice move about the screen, simply swipe in front of them to drop a tile and point them in a direction to run. While the game may not sound very difficult, there are, in fact, an assortment of obstacles and an army of evil cats that very well could have you pulling your hair out by level 10.

With three different game modes, some ridiculously fast-paced gameplay, and an out-of-this-world story line, ChuChu Rocket is undoubtedly one of the more unusual puzzle games out there. Whether you used to play it on Dreamcast or you're just now hearing about it, we think it's definitely worth a download.

ChuChu Rocket (download) is available for 99 cents in the Android Market.
