Myst for iPhone is finally available at the AppStore. Moreover it is reasonably priced (5,99$). Its size is huge (727 Mb – that is more than the original game, whose resolution was higher but with a lower bits depth) and the install process requires 1,5 Gb of space left on the device (this additional space is retrieved once the install completes). Here are the features list :

• All the original Ages & gameplay
• High quality images (better than original Myst)
• Full music & sound effects
• Original movies & animations
• Auto-save (when quitting or phone call)
• “Bookmark” system to save & restore progress
• Swipe to turn
• Auto-zoom in certain close-up areas
• Quick access to hint guide

It works with iPhone 3G, the original iPhone, and iPod touch.

UPDATE : about saturated and distorted music (sound effects are ok however) it seems the DS version also experienced that problem (moreover with worse graphics) :

(the sound effects and music are crackly and distorted…)

  1. The images depth is indeed better however some music have lot of saturation (was present in the original game but it seems worse here) – sounds are ok however. Trees in Myst Island seem a bit thinner, as if they were compressed horizontally to match the different screen ratio (to be confirmed by comparing with the original game images) ?

  2. We can find interesting thoughts here.
