Edge's iOS app of the Month for February gets an iPhone version!

After much pleading from the community, bitSmith Games are delighted to announce that Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan version 1.4 will be a universal app, so iPhone users can join in the epic Celt-Punk journey to face the might of the Morrigan!

To celebrate this, the app will be reduced to 99c for the first week.

Based on the Ancient Irish epic 'the Táin', but set in a future Ireland where economic collapse and techno-magical warfare has ravaged the country. The occupants have returned to a tribal way of life, misunderstanding and fearing much of the technology that they encounter.

From a small village, our hero Ku, must journey into the unknown to rescue a vital piece of technology from the clutches of the mysterious Morrigan.

Built with touch devices in mind, this action-packed adventure features beautiful hand-drawn graphics, fast paced combat, epic boss encounters, devilish puzzles, an original soundtrack by some of Ireland's best electronic musicians, and an option to play in the native tongue of Ireland - Gaeilge.
