Whenever a game as polished as Slice It! comes out, you pretty much have no choice but to download and try it out - Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja are great examples of such games, and Slice It! from Com2Us does not disappoint. Not to be confused with Fruit Ninja-like games where you have to slice fruit in the air, in Slice It!, you have to divide various shapes into equal sizes in order to advance. Similar to Angry Birds, star ratings are given at the end of each level. My first impressions after seeing the graphics and the UI were most excellent, and I'm sure Slice It! will occupy many hours of my down time.

You won't find the game in the Android Market just yet, as Com2Us rolled it out exclusively through an alternative market GetJar for now, just like Rovio did with Angry Birds at launch. This time, though, GetJar didn't go down after 5 minutes.

Check out these screenshots I took and the official video on the iOS, and then proceed to the Slice It! download link:

Press release:

Smash Hit, Slice It! Launches Android Game Exclusively on GetJar

Yet Another Top iPhone Game Makes its Debut on Android

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The free android version of the smash iPhone hit, Slice It!, marks yet another debut on GetJar, the world’s largest open app store. This very addictive brain teasing puzzle game, which placed second on Apple’s app store in September 2010 (2nd in US and 1st in Japan, UK, Germany), is just another example of the latest iPhone apps to embrace the Android platform. Its developer, Com2uS, joins other top games publishers such as Rovio, with its recent Angry Birds debut, Gameloft and Glu, among others, to leverage GetJar as a distribution platform for Android apps and games, as developers continue to embrace the Android platform at an amazing rate.

“We’re excited to launch the Android version of Slice It! on GetJar,” said Don Lim, general manager at Com2us. “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. Once you slice it, you can’t stop slicing. GetJar is the perfect complement to Android Market by extending our game to millions of people in more than 200 countries all over the world.”

“We are thrilled that Com2uS, developer of Slice It!, has decided to offer the full Android version of their game to millions of GetJar consumers first,” said Patrick Mork, CMO at GetJar. “GetJar’s ‘open’ philosophy really allows us to expand the distribution of Android apps both directly via the more than 25 million consumers who access GetJar every day as well as through our recent integration with Yahoo! Mobile Search, where consumers can browse and download their favorite apps independently of the device they are using. More importantly, with great games like Angry Birds or Slice It! and innovative new apps like Pulse, Tango or Kik, I think it’s fair to say that Android content has never been better.”

Android is one of GetJar’s fastest growing platforms with downloads growing up to 500 percent since April of this year.

    The link to Slice It tells me it doesn't support my phone! Nexus One. :-(

      According to an email we just got from GetJar's PR team, the compatibility has been fixed, so maybe you could try again.

    Kate: Same here (also on a N1). It makes no sense.

    Actually Android Market is bigger than Get Jar because Android Market got 170,000 apps + avalible and GetJar 68,625 apps available so android market is the worlds 2nd biggest app store.

      Where in the world did you get that figure? It's nowhere near that much - the real number is about 111K right now.
