Well, well, well. Look at this. It seems that Backflip Studios has published HandCircus's sea-faring adventure Seabeard on Android earlier than it told us last week.

Yep, it's available to download on Google Play right now. Yet, last week we were told that it wouldn't be available until tomorrow. Those scallywags!

But hey, whatever man, it means you don't have to wait.

So, Android players, now you can finally gather your crew, hop on to a boat, and get exploring the ocean and its many populated islands.

We gave Seabeard a Bronze Award in our review of the iOS version, saying that it "nearly hits Nintendo-style heights, but never quite manages to get there."

That said, it has been improved since then so that there's "a ton more to do and the economy is more fairly balanced," as HandCircus put it.
