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.
Added support for iOS 12
Added support for Xs, XsMax and XR devices.
Increased audio buffers.
A few minor fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Just keeps crashing!
Well, after 4 days gameplay the game froze and no amount of iPhone resets would fix it - game just reopened at same place and would not allow any movement, although sound was still there. Very reluctantly I reinstalled and started again. 4 days later the same thing happened in the same place in the game. I really can’t be bothered to restart year again, having for close to the end both times. Very frustrating and annoying. I feel like I’ve been cheated as I have wasted 8 days and seem unlikely to be able to ever finish this game.
Also, I have to say that the navigation is very difficult on a small screen, and some things are VERY difficult to see/find. Had to resort to hints just to find some levers and switches because they were in dark places. Finally, this is a very complex game and without hints I really think it would be unplayable. However, If it hadn’t crashed then it would have got 4 stars.
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.
