While an APK of the free-to-play version (reportedly set to hit Google Play at a later date) is floating out there, there’s an anti-piracy check. So it may be a bit tricky at the moment to try this one out if you have Android. The good news is that there’s some footage popping up on YouTube, showing the level-based game with a bunch of classic zones:
