Just one month after its release on Android, Sega has announced its classic puzzler ChuChu Rocket! is available as a free Android app from GetJar.

ChuChu Rocket! tasks players with guiding lines of ChuChu (space mice, essentially) to their getaway rocket while avoiding the hungry cats on patrol.

The Sega puzzler joins GetJar's Gold App program, dropping its original 99c price tag to free.

Multiplayer appears to have been removed since the original Dreamcast version, but there's still over 500 puzzles to keep you occupied as well as a battle mode against up to three computer opponents.

“With the continuing popularity of ChuChu Rocket!, we knew it was a perfect fit for the world’s largest free app store,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at Sega of America.

“Having SEGA’s iconic library on our platform is an obvious choice, and ChuChu Rocket! definitely meets the gold standard for the GetJar Gold Program,” said Ilja Laurs, CEO and Founder of GetJar.

“With such simple, accessible, and wonderfully clever gameplay, there’s no reason every mobile user should not have access to games like this one. So, now they do!”

ChuChu Rocket! is available now for free on GetJar.
