App description: realMYST for iPad - This is not your fathers Myst. Experience Myst in a way thats closer to real than youve ever imagined - in realtime 3D and up close and personal on your iPad 2 or newer. You've got to experience it to believe it!

Here are a few comments from realMyst purchasers...

"Best game on iPad"
"Get this game!!!!!!!!!!"
"Phenomenal Graphics"
"Excellent!!!"
"Great Game!"
"Awesome!!"
"GREAT APP!!"
"Best ipad game ever!"
"Amazing."
"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 iPad* 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.

Maybe awesome, but so "been there, done that"...

Played that game yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeears ago on my old Mac, and more recently even on the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS, but lost it's shine due to the fact that game mechanics progress and in that way this game is nowadays too dull....but that's just my opinion.

realMyst has never been out on the PSP or DS, so, no, you haven't played this version before. Whether free-roam movement and real-time graphics and effects really add anything to the gameplay is debatable (the original creators didn't think so), but it certainly feels like a more contemporary and immersive experience than the original HyperCard deck.

The difference in the graphics between the original and realMyst is amazing. RealMyst is ever so much more polished and beautiful, with little improvements everywhere. And there's a new Age that you haven't seen even if you've played the original.

Having played around with it a bit, I'm quite impressed in general, but it is kinda let down by some seriously low-res textures in places. 856MB (uncompressed) seems really small for a game of this scale. I would have been happy if it was double this size with higher quality textures.

On the The Ipad2, bringing up the menu is choppy.
Opening doors, loading time takes forever.

Where is the Hint system?? Did not see it..

Bring up the menu and tap on the question mark at the bottom corner of the book to go to the hints. (it opens in Safari)
