Phosphor Games Studio and Zynga have announced the availability of Horn, a new game for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. The game is the first to launch under the Zynga Partners for Mobile project, which was first announced in June.

Available for $6.99, Horn is a third-person action game based loosely on the Old English tales of King Horn. In it, you play a young blacksmith named Horn who wakes up to find his village has been overrun by large, and sometimes humorous, monsters.

Your job, whether with a sword, crossbow, or trusted musical horn, is to defeat these creatures. Along the way, you’ll explore different lands and solve puzzles, in your quest to undo a curse that has overtaken your homeland.
