It’s been a long time coming but a little game by the name of Sprinkle is now available (dramatic pause) in the Android Market. Yes, this is the very same game we brought to you in our exclusive video preview all the way back in June and have been counting down the days until its release. Sprinkle is exclusive to devices with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processors. So, if you’re lucky enough to rock one of those devices, you can get in on this water physics based action.

The premise is simple, using a makeshift fire truck you douse flaming meteors falling from the sky before they can burn down fellow villager’s house. While that may sound easy enough, when combined with unique water physics and puzzle elements, this game provides for a pretty amazing challenge. Whether you’re an adult or a child, Sprinkle’s charming personality and low learning curve makes it a joy to pick up and play.

In more Sprinkle news, the 2-man Swedish wrecking crew over at Mediocre spoke on Nvidia’s blog about developing the game on the Tegra 2 platform and what they have in store for Sprinkle on Nvidia’s upcoming quad-core Kal-El processor.

“With Project Kal-El around the corner, these are interesting times for mobile game developers – especially for those of us who are making physics-based games. We think Sprinkle is a good example of how to use complex physics simulation for gameplay and not just effects.”

There you have it, folks. Nvidia’s Kal-El is real — it’s being developed on — and it’s only right around the corner. You can find Sprinkle right now in the Android Market, Nvidia Tegra Zone app and TegraZone.com for only $1.99. If you like “fun,” I wouldn’t hesitate on picking this one up.
