The good news is that Horn—a fantasy-adventure game from Phosphor Game Studio—has launched and is now available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The bad news is that your Facebook feed will soon be full of updates about the game because they partnered with Zynga. So it goes.
Horn is an attempt to bring console-style graphics and gameplay to the touch devices. The character explores a castle, looking for the cure to a curse, and encounters puzzles and combat.
So what’s the game about? Quoth the press release:
Based loosely on the Old English tales of King Horn, you play as a young blacksmith’s apprentice named Horn who wakes up to find your village and lands over run by large fantastic, and sometimes humorous, monsters. It is revealed that these creatures are actually the people and animals from your village transformed by a curse, and you alone have the power to free them.
Horn is available for $6.99 in the iTunes App Store, and is compatible with iPad, iPhone 3gs and better, and the iPod touch 3rd generation or better.
