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.

*Features...

realMyst is for the iPad 2 and the new iPad
All the original Myst Ages plus bonus Rime Age
Full Myst gameplay and interaction
Dynamic environments - rippling water, falling rain, waving trees
Haunting Myst music score and dynamic 3D sounds

Interaction Guides demonstrate how to interact with objects
Full Retina Display support on the new iPad
"Bookmark" feature to save & restore progress

realMyst Hint Guide - get past that one puzzle that's got you stumped

** iOS REQUIREMENTS: iOS 5 or better is highly recommended. If you play realMyst on iOS 4 you may experience some sound and movie issues.

** realMyst for iPad has massive amounts of detailed 3D environments. Loading (while linking to the various Ages) can take longer on slower devices.

Can someone please tell me the performance on iPad 1 and iPad 2? Is the game really choppy as claimed by a previous post for the iPad 2?

So far I am playing through the intro to the game. I am fairly impressed, though I wished they used higher resolution textures for certain elements, books and pages particularly. The game can feel a bit laggy at times, but on a game like this, it isn't a problem.

I must say, I'm enjoying revisiting Myst again. I first played the original on the Mac almost 20 years ago, and haven't tried any of the other versions over the years. It still holds up pretty well to this day. It's a real shame that some of the textures are so poor though.

How about no Wifi at the workplace?

Either your joking or just plain stupid.

What's the point?

As someone new to the series, and due to the lack of any type of mention of what the overall gameplay etc. entails, can someone please shed light as to what the point of this game is? Can you try to relate it to any other game on the appstore please?

Thanks!

CabDog: This is a puzzle exploration game. This is essentially the granddaddy of all those point-and-click puzzle games that you can find throughout the App Store. The basic object is to collect colored pages, solving puzzles to access additional islands and to leave those islands, etc.

This helps a ton! So, kinda like Dreamscape?

Thanks so much!
