Phosphor Games And Zynga Launch Horn For Mobile Devices

One of the most eagerly anticipated mobile games of the year is now available for download as Phosphor Games Studio, a top-tier development studio for interactive entertainment, and Zynga, (NASDAQ: ZNGA), the world's leading provider of social game services, today announced that Horn is now available from the App Store on iPhone and iPad, and coming soon for NVIDIA® Tegra®-powered Android devices.

Horn is our most ambitious project to date. Our goal from the onset was to provide a console-style experience for mobile devices that can be played and enjoyed by anyone,” said Chip Sineni, Director at Phosphor Games Studio. “Partners such as Zynga and NVidia were invaluable in helping us make the most of the technology, reach out to millions of people, maximize our resources, and produce a game we hope players will enjoy and appreciate.”

“We are thrilled that Horn will be the first game to launch under the Zynga Partners for Mobile program, and the first console-quality title in Zynga’s mobile game portfolio,” said Adam Sussman, Head of Mobile Publishing, Zynga. “Our publishing efforts strive to increase reach and distribution for our partners while helping Zynga’s global network of active players discover new, high-quality games.  Horn is a great first example of what we can achieve with our partners.”

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 find your village and lands over run by large fantastic, and sometimes humorous, monsters. It is revealed that 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.
