    Horn is by far one of the most substantial games released for mobile devices yet, with a quest spanning several hours that is better suited to setting aside time to focus on your game than a quick session here or there. But for those looking for a mobile game that can live up to its console contemporaries, Horn is a must-have.

    Horn brings a rich fantasy world to life, combining elements of classic and modern adventure titles to create something all its own; an incredibly engaging title and a definite must have.

    I don't want to sound too overdramatic, but if I were looking to sum up Horn in two words, it would probably sound something like 'mobile masterpiece.'

    One of the best games available on iOS, and almost on any other portable device. It vanishes the line between portable devices and portable video game systems. A beautiful and entertaining story and a rich gaming offer, together with its stunning graphics, make Horn worth it of any iDevice.

    Horn is a well-crafted game that has been well thought out. The story is creative and lovingly presented, and works with the thematic concepts perfectly. Aside from very few control issues, this is definitely a great game that shouldn't go unnoticed.

    Horn is the real deal. It looks, sounds and plays great. The adventure may a little too linear and repetitive, but it's still a blast exploring this gorgeous and riveting world. The exploration, puzzle-solving and combat combine to create an enthralling adventure.

    Nice game that's soley cribbled by all of tablet's shortcomings. The game has great potential that will shine through when run on a system with sufficient specs and application. This game is way to serious for a supersized mobile.. Full Review »

    Been waiting for a game of this quality since UDK showed up on the iPhone. Some UI elements are kind of rough looking, but the fact that it feels like a "real" game makes up for it. Full Review »
