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

Version 1.3.0

Added iOS 9, 10 and 11 compatibility updates.
Added support for larger screened iPhones.
Help and hints can now be view offline.
Added restarting movie if app is paused while movie is playing.

Ratings and Reviews

Aggravating navigation


I loved Myst as a kid, and thoroughly enjoyed realMyst as an adult. However, the navigation in this iteration of Riven is extremely frustrating. Clicking between stills makes it extremely difficult to have any real sense of orientation or direction, and it's often hard to tell if you can interact with an object and you're just clicking in slightly the wrong place, or if you can't interact with it at all. I'm sure this is a fantastic game, but I'm finding the navigation within this open world near-impossible.

Does NOT play like realMyst


Loved playing realMyst and was excited to get cracking with Riven - but am totally wracked off to find that this is not the same gameplay at all, rather than being able to move around you only have the option to click through stills as you progress through, which is very unrewarding, loses all of the magic of realMyst and, for me, has left me £3.99 out of pocket with a game I have no desire to play. It should be made v clear that this is a very different, more basic, game play model.

Bloody great!!


Finished the first one with a friend on my mac a couple of years ago and got this one but didn't get into it and before I had a chance one of the discs got broke but I'm really looking forwards to playing through this!! The first is such an amazing game, definitely the best puzzle game I've ever played! On par with broken sword two (my other fav) I find this one a little more overwhelming than the first myst as it's much bigger!
I've played about an hour now and I can already see this is going to be the most challenging game I've ever played! Much harder than myst! But you just can't beat the satisfaction you get from finally getting past a bit you've been stuck on for so long!! Makes u think in ways most games don't and it was a great story in the first one
