The superb mix of strategy and match-three puzzling that is Vivid Games's Samurai Puzzle Battle has earned the game a Silver Award on both the mobile and iPhone.

The good news for early adopters of the Android handsets is that Vivid Games is currently working on adapting Samurai Puzzle Battle to Google's open-source platform.

It aims to launch the game next January on the Handango portal (presumably as that's currently the only way to sell Android games) and through the Android market place as soon as it launches.

If you haven't picked up the game already (and we recommend you do), head on over to the official site where you can have a go at the mobile demo, then perch your Android handset on the edge of its seat. Domo arigto!

(By the way, the attached screenshots are from the mobile version. We'll post you some Android ones as soon as they're available, so keep checking back).
