Here are a few comments from realMyst players...

"Get this game!!!!!!!!!!"
"Phenomenal Graphics"
"Great Game!"
"Best ipad game ever!"
"Amazing game!"
"Better than the original"
"iPad was made for realMyst"

realMyst is all-things Myst, but amazingly more real. You can explore anywhere, unfettered, and in realtime! Pick your own path through the forest on Myst Island. Look lazily upward into the Channelwood Age trees. Relax next to the rippling fountain as the sun sets in the Selenitic Age. Spin around for a full panoramic tour of Sirrus’ throne room. Seek shelter from the thunderstorm in Stoneship Age.

And what could possibly make that experience even more real? Now you can have all of that on your iOS device with nothing between you and Myst but the touch of your finger - the sheerest of interfaces between you and the surrealistic island adventure that will become your world.

Just like I remember but better


I bought the original Myst for the Mac back when it was first released. At the time the imagery was amazing with a great sound track and a cleaver use of Sound, Video, and puzzles. I have to admit I was a fan of the whole story line and bought the first two books. Last week I downloaded an old Macintosh emulator and the original Myst. 256 color 640x480 images with tiny little videos was very unimpressive. I bought this version for my iPad 4 and have to say It is true to the original and brings a nice immersive feel to the world of Myst with great quality. For those who are into modern video this may seem a bit dated, but it is great as far as I am concerned. I loved the addition of the Rime Age. I remembered a number of the puzzles and others felt like learning a new. I am looking forward to grabbing Riven for iPad too.

An almost perfect recreation (but still REALLY good)


This 3D rendering of Myst was a real treat for me. I've had a copy of Myst on pretty much every computer my family's ever owned, but was never able to solve the difficult puzzles as a kid in the 90s.
As an adult it was a lot of fun to come back and actually make progress in this beautifully designed world. It offers pure nostalgic bliss and never stops delivering.
It's not a perfect game however, at least not on the iPhone. The small screen required me to often lift my finger and replace it to continue my walk around any tight corner. The touch screen is very responsive and for the most part works excellently. But, almost every winding staircase and tight turn gives me grief every time I interact with it. I'm sure on the computer it's much better, but for $6 this game is still a real deal.
I'd give it 5 stars if not for the periodically awkward controls.

Still a classic.


Having grown up with Myst, and since I had played the original this game is still just as beautiful and nostalgic as it's ever been.
The controls (will always be sort of clunky on a touchscreen) are minimalistic and very easy to grasp. It was great having full access to areas as well with realMyst.
And while the graphics clearly take a plunge since the original and its adaptations on the PC it's still easy to lose yourself with a set of headphones in the dark. The ages, which are the different worlds within the game, are still completely immersive.
Definitely worth the buy if you come across this aged, but not forgotten classic.
