HORN is a 3rd person action adventure game - a completely unique experience where anyone can fully explore and enjoy a beautiful and engaging console-style world, all controllable by touch gestures.

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 these creatures are actually the people and animals from your village transformed by a curse, and you alone have the power to free them. On your incredible adventure you carry the loud-mouthed head of one such fantastic creature with you - a somewhat uncooperative and ill-tempered but grudgingly helpful sidekick. Along with this new companion you must use your sword, crossbow, trusty musical horn, and wits to explore the lands, defeat the enemies, and solve puzzles in your quest to undo the curse that engulfs your homeland.

Horn features:
Accessible controls that anyone can use- walking, jumping, crawling, even grapple hook, are all performed with intuitive gestures
Freely navigable console-quality detailed world- go wherever you want; not confined to limited path or rail
A rich and unique fantasy world
Touch-friendly melee combat and crossbow style weapons
3 unique and beautiful lands to discover
Endlessly escalating challenge modes
Hidden side content to discover
Score written by award winning Austin Wintory and performed with full live orchestral

What the... wait... you're right! Oh Lord, looks like I've called it!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Anyone know if iCloud support is coming? That would be great!

How does it run on an iPod 5g? Also what kinda gameplay does it have? I've heard it's sorta like Zelda meets Infinity Blade. If that's the case, then I'm definitely interested.

>>Did they make it playable on touch 4?<<

It is playable on our Touch 4s (even playable on touch 3) on our devices, but it obviously isn't as nice

You should download the free version and see if it is acceptable to you

That is still a ways off sadly Agreed it would be great!

Started playing this again and it does look great on the ipad mini. It plays great too but i've been spoiled too much with a different controls scheme.

I bet Horn would play a lot smoother if the movement controls were similar to Brandnew Boy or Lili.

I thought the Horn controls were WAY better than Lili. Maybe because I played the two back-to-back, and played Horn first, so that was fresh in my mind.

^What i found difficult in Horn is the "tap a spot to move there." It doesnt really feel intuitive since the game's general view is behind the back. It probably would have been better if it was a little top view.

Looks like it might be a good game but always crashes right after I start it.

It plays fine on my brother-in-law's ipad2, and plays perfectly on my ipad mini... So im not sure what you're experiencing.

Runs fine one my iPad2 as well, only downside is it drains A LOT of battery...
Did you do the usual stuff, like close all background applications and restart your iPad?
Memory garbage collection isn't perfect on any operating system, so sooner or later your memory will be filled up with just that, garbage. Restarting should help.
