Japan’s Kiteretsu has released the Android version of its Zookeeper Battle app worldwide, after its iOS app has racked up more than a million downloads since its release back in August.

The game combines puzzle and battle elements (sort of in the same way that Puzzles & Dragons does), as the points you score in the brief puzzle session are then carried into battle against your real-time opponent.

I took the game for a spin to check out what the fuss was about, and I confess it was a lot of fun. The graphics are simple, but the gameplay is easy and fun. You can obtain special items in the puzzle as well, like hearts to give your life meter a boost, or even a sand-bucket to grey out your opponents puzzle, thus making it harder for them to gain points.

So far the iOS game, which appears to have done particularly well in Greater China, is available in English, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese, as is the newly launched Android version. Annoyingly, there are some weird misspellings and grammar oddities in the English version, and I’m really not sure how companies can push titles to global audiences without ensuring the text in their game is taken care of [1].

Overall I think it’s a fun game, and I recommend you give it a try and let us know what you think. You can get the new Android version from the Google Play app store now.
