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

Is it true that the game looks crappy on an Iphone 4? And that it is laggy too? What about the recent update?
They said older devices are now supported more.
I'm really having trouble making a decision whether to buy it or not.
A detailed report would be really helpfull. Please anyone tell me. Thanks.
Current device: Iphone 4, 32 gb. IOS 6.0.1

Trust me, they suck, even the skyboxes are missing! Textures look terrible, the game has NO lighting, but it does hold a steady FramRate... I strongfuly disliked my experience with the game because I couldn't get over the "Rayman 2" textures and the absence of any lighting, but you might be different...

IMO that's a shame. Phosphor was such a good company (Dark Meadow)...

That's wierd...so it looks stunning on a 4S (I have the game and a 4S), but crap on a 4, and doesn't fit the screen on a 5? That's some strict device targetting right there.

The graphics are marginally sharper now, but things are a hell of a lot more choppy on the iPod touch 5g than they were before... and we still have to watch that dumb intro every single time! Glad I saved an older version, sure the graphics will look slightly worse, but they'll at least be smooth again.

Has anyone tried the new Quest Mode? What exactly are you meant to be doing? I'm just stuck in a tiny enclosed area at the start with a locked gate, and apart from shooting one of those flying things with the crossbow, I don't have a clue what I'm supposed to be doing. Am I missing something?

Yeah thanks, I didn't see the steps leading down at the left hand side, through the archway. I thought I'd run into a bug right from the start but I'm up and running now.

For now I've discovered at least three quest "directions". Also after spending ten levels on treasure door i haven't received my award ( blueprints) from chest.
