Riven for iPad is as large as an App can be. We’ve managed to optimize Riven from its original DVD size to a little under a 2 gigabytes. Please be patient - download times and syncing times can be longer.
Because of the way iOS devices install apps, you may need extra free space on your device to install Riven. Once it's installed you can use the extra space again.

True to the original
A good port, provided you can bare the graphics. Be aware that this game is almost two decades old and was designed for very old computers which, at the time, could not handle 'HD' graphics, and cyan have already said that the assets cannot be re-rendered in high definition. You'd expect that from an old game.
That said, there are a few niggling issues which were annoying, such as videos not lining up perfectly with the static backgrounds, random glitchy green lines around some videos and every video being rendered at much lower fps than the original (why??).
The controls translated to a touch screen, though. This is how riven is meant to be played!
Still one of the best
Stands up so well today, gorgeous game with beautiful art and challenging puzzles. It's still better than any other modern point and click I've played. Well worth the money spent.
