The Epic Tale Of How Phosphor Games Reclaimed 'Horn' From Zynga So It Could Publish The Game Properly

Horn came out on Android back in 2012, and it was a pretty big deal at the time. Phosphor Games Studio had previously seen success with Dark Meadow, and it was clear the studio could do great things. Unlike Dark Meadow, Horn was published by Zynga instead of the developer. The title made a splash when it was released, but the 1-star reviews piled up as updates failed to materialize.

Let's get this out of the way upfront, LEGO City My City has nothing to do with LEGO City Undercover for the Wii U. Chase McCain is not the protagonist, Frank Honey's antics are nowhere to be found, and there is no open world city to explore.

Minigore 2 Returns To Google Play Under New Listing Following Ad Fiasco

Minigore 2 arrived on Android a little over a week ago, but it was gone just days later after its ad practices were called into question. The game was basically requiring players to tap on ads to bypass mandatory wait times. It was a minor inconvenience, but a big fat violation of Google's ad policies.
