jack hunter looks something like csi: miami.
but it doesn't seem to be very polished though.

Imprisoned! is pretty good, but it requires a bit of patience. Thankfully they released a patch with easy mode, which makes it much more playable from the start. Unfortunately it makes the game ridiculously easy, and without any challenge the game lacks a purpose.

The story is atrocious and the inventory system is poorly implemented. When you go to combine items, it will be lit up in the synthesis menu, but then it will tell you that you need to go back to storage and pick up your items, making for a frustrating experience.

With those quips aside, the game is pretty entertaining. It has a ton of unrealized potential that will hopefully be attained with a couple more updates.

Is Imposoned an adventure game? I thought it was more like a 2D rpg/shooter? I haven't played it though. Does it have any puzzles?

I want to try the JakeHunters, but I haven't taken the plunge. I loved the Gabriel Knight PC games. Wish there was something similar here.

Hopefully if the Myst, Syberia, and Return to Mystery Island ports do well than we'll see some more good games (both ports and originals) coming soon after that.

For the Jake Hunter games, just check out the Nintendo DS reviews as I believe the game includes all 3 cases. So far they have only released 2 cases for the iPhone.

I knew Jake Hunter looked familiar! The reviews weren't favorable for that title if I remember correctly, but if they're releasing DS adventure titles, then maybe we can get some Phoenix Wright love in here.

And yeah, Imprisoned! isn't a classic adventure title, it's more of an rpg.

I was a bit curious myself, so after a little Google legwork, here's what I found:
Syberia April, 2009 http://www.tetraedge.com/
Return to Mystery Island, February, 2009 http://www.tetraedge.com/
Myst, announced 8/08 http://www.macworld.com/article/1351...8/08/myst.html
