Athanos

Anybody see this yet? I was searching for Myst when this came up. It is 99 cents and looks promising.

"
Athanos, the odyssey of the Souls
You are wandering around the beautiful and mysterious suspended gardens of Athanos, searching for the keys to open the door of the Great Crypt.
There you'll have to solve the final enigma of the weight of the souls to get back to the world of the living.
FPS, full 3D, the first "Myst like" game ever created for the Iphone. Plunge into the deep and spellbinding atmosphere of the crypt's mystery of the Athanos gardens.

I picked this up last night but haven't had a chance to dig into it yet. I was busy playing Trixel (which btw is a keeper if you like puzzles and logic games). I will say that in the two minutes I tried Athanos out, the controls are a little quirky. More later...

The graphics are great but the game will crash a lot on you. Not really sure what I'm supposed to do in the game.

Maybe this app takes up to much RAM or memory cause of those graphics?

That's what I thought. It must have something to do with the device processor. I have a Touch, and from the few minutes I had with it, movement seems smooth. I didn't actually get a chance to look for stuff yet, but the framerate was fine.

Btw, there are no directions included. Literally, the opening splash page says "Play".
