Taking up where Myst left off, Riven set an amazing new standard for design, aesthetics, and immersion in gaming. Remember Atrus’ trap book, the Moiety intervention, the mag-lev ride, the Jungle village, Catherine’s prison, Gehn’s Age, the Wahrk throne? Now the entire Riven adventure can be experienced from wherever you are.

Riven for iOS is a very large application. We’ve managed to optimized Riven from its original DVD size to a little over a gigabyte, so please be patient - download times can be longer.
Because of the way iOS installs apps, you will need to have more than a gigabyte of free space to install Riven. Once it's installed you can use the extra space again.
What's New in Version 1.1.13
- iOS7 compatibility
- 4 inch display support
Great Game, incomplete video content
In my opinion, this is one of the greatest games ever made! And here we have a fully functional version for the iOS, which is more than can be said for Mac OS X. The touch controls are minimal and functional. Only a few hotspots in the game are almost too small to find, even with previous knowledge of the game, for which a helpful hotspot highlighting feature has been added. Sadly, however, some of the original QuickTime video content in various parts of the game seems to be missing, most notably the oh-so-cool animations for the topographical grid puzzle. They have simply been omitted! Whether this is for space constrains (lame) or interface constraints (they could have figured this out), I couldn’t say, but it definitely threw a wrench in my experience just a little. Other videos seem more compressed than in the original game, though this might be an idealistic memory at work. Perhaps they have fixed this in the iPad version, I don’t know. In any case, this is a great game, and one of the only legitimate ways to play it currently, so get it!
Truly an adventure
Well, I just finished playing Riven through for the first time in two years. The melancholy of reaching the end of a good story is settling in, and I may just have to play it through once more to stave it off.
These games are so creative and rich. There are hardly any interactions with characters, yet it's all still so alive. You really do feel like you're there, running around and exploring the islands yourself.
Maybe I'll play Myst first, and then Riven- back to back?
I don't have a problem. I can stop anytime I want.
Great port. Great gameplay.
I bought this game in 1998 and never finished it. Playing this on iOS seemed like it would not make sense, in terms of a mouse versus a touchscreen but I tried it anyway. It turned out to be really easy to play and soon I didn't even notice I didn't have a mouse. Gameplay was smooth and the game clipped along. For those parts I finished in 1998, the gameplay was identical to iOS as far as I can recall. Now I'm going to download and play through Myst.
