“Horn” is now available on Android’s Google Play and iOS
Horn, one of the most amazing graphical adventures has arrived on the Apple App Store and Android’s Google Play store with console-like graphics that match what you’ve seen on Infinity Blade and the likes. If you don’t remember it, Horn is the game Google used to showcase the best out of mobile gaming at the Google I/O 2012.

The Horn game arrived on iOS a few weeks earlier, and today it makes its big entrance on Android. It’s a third-person action adventure game where you take over the role of the young blacksmith’s apprentice Horn. The story starts when out of the blue your village is one day invaded by mythical monsters that turn out to actually be the people of the village themselves transformed by a curse.

The Horn game on Android is optimized for Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 devices and comes in a number of languages. It costs a hefty $6.99, but we’d say it’s worth it if you are into gaming. You can download it from the links below, and right underneath is the promo video for the game.

Is it really just optimized, or exclusive for tegra devices? The play store says it's not compatible on my s3...

s**t. Well, looks like I won't be spending my seven bucks on it anyway.

And really, what phones in the US are powered by Tegra 3? What ones are powered by tegra 2? Besides the Atrix and Photon, that is.

They're going to need to update it with Snapdragon, Exynos and TI compatibility if they expect anyone to play the f**king game.

Seems to be. I can't even find it on Play myself. A search for Horn just brings up Air Horn apps.

Oh well. Not like I don't have FIFTY OTHER GAMES to play on my phone.

You might be comforted to know it didn't show up on the market search on my galaxy tab 10.1 either despite tegra onboard,using pa's link above it says device incompatible. Tegra 3 for now I suspect, other versions soon

Well, It would be a shame if it won't be available for other high-end android devices without Tegra. We can all just keep our hopes up for now, folks.

That looks like a sweet game.

However, my mobile gaming budget for this period has gone to IAP for Dead Trigger. (the Lupara f**king rules!) I'll have to wait for a little bit before going to get it.

This is the only mobile game I've been playing! I did the free gold thing by tapjoy, signed up for Netflix for free, got 1600 Gold, then cancelled. The Lupara does rule, love the reload animation.

This game is true open world not some rail adventure. So it's worth the money

If you root you can bypass the tegra exclusivity, many games worked fairly well even if not optimised for the chipset. However, this game is quite demanding hardware wise and probably needs a port.
