The amazing Horn game to be released this month on mobile devices

by: LucianAugust 4, 2012

Phosphor Games’ Horn is looking to be one of those Android games that you absolutely have to buy. The game is based on the Unreal Engine, which means impressive graphics are assured, and it seems to resemble a lot the very popular iOS game Infinity Blade.

The team behind Infinity Blade seems to have made some sort of exclusivity deal with Apple, and they aren’t going to bring the game to Android anytime soon. Fortunately, Horn looks to be a much better overall game than Infinity Blade.

The Horn game is a much deeper and richer game than the simple boss fights in Infinity Blade. It’s mainly an adventure game that reminds you of Zelda or Fable. So it seems to be a lot more interesting from the gameplay point of view than Infinity Blade, which has a pretty stale gameplay.

The narrative is based loosely on the Old English tales of King Horn. You play as Horn, a young blacksmith’s apprentice, who wakes up one day and finds many stone monsters in his village, only to discover later that the monsters are the animals and people from the village, who have been transformed. Your quest is to free them from this curse.

If the game has peaked your interest, you won’t have to wait much longer, because the company has announced the game is coming this month, in August, to mobile devices.

    I’m waiting for the game that gameloft is going to make on unreal engine 3 (their first unreal engine game!!!) It’s probably going to be awesome and take over 2gb of space :)

    Horn uses the Unreal Engine 3, which was pioneered an used in Infinity Blades 1 & 2. This looks to be a more 3D and dynamic than Infinity Blade, but the characters and monsters abstract and cartoony than IB’s dramatic and dark life forms.
