Previewed back at Google I/O, Phosphor Game’s Horn has finally arrived for Android. If you didn’t know, Phosphor is the same team that brought us Dark Meadow, which is another epic piece of mobile gaming. Thankfully, Horn is no different. To get an idea of just how epic this game is, the additional download after the 8MB apk is installed is a whopping 1.8GB of data. If you’re on a tiered plan, you might want to find a WiFi spot for this one.
Horn is set in a beautiful world. You play as a blacksmith’s apprentice who has awoken to find his homeland has been turned upside down and the only creatures you run into are gigantic robotic monsters. Of course, not many of these creatures are friendly and you must defend yourself and destroy the monsters. A little into the game, it becomes clear that these monsters are in fact, people who have been transformed into these abominations from a terrible curse and only you have the power to save them.
It’s been a great experience to play so far and I highly recommend it if that $7 price tag doesn’t scare you away. Either way, let’s get to why you’re really here. Contest rules and instructions on how to enter are down below.
