Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP gets an iPhone 5 update

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is the latest in an increasingly-long line of App Store games to receive an iPhone 5-related update.

Capybara's weird and wonderful adventure game has hit version 1.07, and it now takes full advantage of the iPhone 5's wider 4-inch 16:9 screen.

Considering that this is one of those audio-visual delights that really benefits from the iPad's large screen, any extra space afforded to the iPhone version can only be a good thing.

This update is for the Universal iOS edition, but don't worry if you bought the iPhone- / iPod touch-only Micro edition - Capybara has promised that it'll be updated, too, over the coming days.

In other news, we've noticed that the game is still available for a very reasonable £1.49 / $1.99, despite the developer's autumn sale supposedly having ended on Sunday.

We're not sure whether this is a time zone-related thing, extended generosity on the developer's part, or simple absent-mindedness, but we recommend buying it quick sharp just in case.
