App of the Day: Horn

Horn is a beautifully put-together action RPG from the makers of The Dark Meadow.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Go get Horn right now. Preliminaries done, it's the finest action RPG we've seen on iOS from the developers who made The Dark Meadow. You're Horn, a blacksmith's apprentice who awakens to discover that his homeland has been overrun by strange robotic monsters (and a mysterious horn) (and he wears a helmet with a single horn on it). But they aren't really monsters; a curse has afflicted the land and transformed the inhabitants.

Everything about it is superb. Reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda series, the gameplay involves well-designed combat and puzzles, and it has a sense of humour about it that is delightful. Unlike Infinity Blade (which the combat also echoes), you can move around the environments, and the art is excellent. And, unlike most of Zynga's other titles, there are no further micropayments once you've bought the game.

Horn for Android (AU$6.69)
Horn for iOS (AU$7.49)
