Android has a new flagship adventure game and we want to give you the best Tegra 3 tablet to experience it on. Today Phosphor Games released their highly anticipated game Horn to the Google Play store. Their previous title Dark Meadow featured the best graphics we have ever seen on Android, so we have really been looking forward to this new game that some are comparing to Zelda.

The Trailer

Phosphor Games describes the title: “Horn is a revolutionary third-person action adventure game where anyone can fully explore and enjoy a beautiful and engaging console-style world, all controllable by touch gestures.  Inspired by the endearing character-based console games, Horn takes the richness of intricate worlds to explore, entertaining characters, thought-provoking puzzles, the excitement of combat, and memorable extraordinary situations — and makes them accessible for everyone to pick up and play.

Based loosely on the Old English tales of King Horn, you play as a young blacksmith’s apprentice named Horn who wakes up to finds 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.”

The Reviews

We just received our copy of Horn within the last 24 hours, so we haven’t had a chance to complete the game yet and review it. However, the iOS version has been available for a couple of weeks and the early reviews are pretty amazing.

  • IGN: “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.”
  • iLounge: “The fact that Horn can be discussed in the same breath as vaunted Legend of Zelda titles is non-trivial, and between its graphics and audio, the game engine here is more impressive than anything Nintendo has put forward on any handheld console to date.
  • 148apps: “As a fan of both the Legend of Zelda series on Nintendo consoles and the Infinity Blade franchise on iOS, I welcomed Horn with open arms. Believe it or not it delivers on both counts.”
  • Pocket-lint: “This is an app you want to show off your phone with: it has cutting-edge graphics, intuitive controls and more than enough gameplay to get stuck into.”

Benefits of Tegra 3

Horn will be featured in TegraZone as it is optimized for Tegra 3 devices to include enhanced physics and additional physically simulated particle systems that respond to the player. You’ll also notice cloth simulation on a number of the characters, dynamic water simulations, and enhanced shadows.

The Prize: Win a Transformer Pad Infinity with dock!

The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is the best Android tablet on the market period. It has the highest resolution display, fastest processor, longest battery life (with dock), and largest internal storage. We thought this was the best device to experience Horn and that’s why we are giving it away. Thank you @NVIDIATegra for supplying the prize!

    I don’t just want the Asus Infinity, I need it, and I’m praying that some fat chance will let me win it, since I’m still not done saving up for it. Ever since I heard about a tablet that could dock onto a keyboard, and with such power and elegant looks, I’ve always been in love with the Infinity. And since it’s not something from Apple, all the better. :)

  • fedz86

    I am from the Philippines. We were affected by the recent typhoon in our area, that led to sudden flood. My Asus laptop got wet during the flood. The repair shop I went to said it cannot be repaired. So I needed a laptop replacement. And Asus Pad Infinity is perfect for that. I love Asus products and I really want and need Asus Pad Infinity. It’s a beast!

  • Cotsios

    Hello and thanks for giving us the opportunity to win a device like this.
    I am a student, I have chosen to create an Android app for my dissertation. It would be perfect to use this table to test it rather the emulator that runs really slow on my pc, and present my work on the interviews with the University’s professors.
    Also can use the tablet as a notebook and can access your pc from everywhere.
    ans why not playing some games like that to enjoy the Tegra 3 CPU on the table to its best!

  • BrotherBloat

    sweet, I was quite impressed with the Tegra-enabled graphics improvement… wow…

  • rewagner
