App description: "Welcome to my ... house!" Old Man Stauf built a house and filled it with his toys. Six guests were invited one night, their screams the only noise

* We've made our companion game T7G:Infection free! If you are missing the microscope puzzle, you can get it for the iPad today! *

* Also please note that in version 7.5 of The 7th Guest it is not necessary to play the Microscope puzzle or the Piano puzzle to complete the game. *

In the world of The 7th Guest, you are an active and mysterious entity known only as "Ego". Your role, identity and purpose is not known or explained, rather, it is experienced as a seamlessly integral part of the total environment that is the Stauf mansion. Because you are looking out from within, you cannot see yourself, but your inner spirit has a voice. Listen to it.

The house of The 7th Guest is filled with 19 devilishly clever puzzles that will test your wits and scare you out of them as well. To complete the game you must solve every puzzle in the house - only then will the secrets of the madman Henry Stauf be revealed to you.

To help you get started, you might want to check out the pyramid in the lower right corner of the Sphinx board.

* "My father purchased The 7th Guest for me as a child and it terrified me to the point of having him return it. With my increase and courage and the scary images being smaller, I think I can handle it now." - Geek Tyrant

* "Many gamers won't remember The 7th Guest, either because they didn't have the groundbreaking technology of a CD-ROM drive in 1993, or they hadn't been born yet. We remember The 7th Guest being an incredibly creepy game that snared our young imaginations and helped shape our minds as gamers." - Slide To Play

* Bill Gates called this game The new standard in electronic entertainment.

Is this a universal build? Couldn't find any mention of it. I'd certainly rather be playing it on the iPad. I'm assuming it's not though.

Yes J'Star I read that same as you, yet it still does not answer the question as to if it is universal. I know it will 2x scale -but is it iPad native resolution?

That just means it will play, and scale up to 2x mode if you want.

It's only NZ$4.19 (US$2.99), so it should be cheap enough to double dip if they release a separate HD version.

A perplexing, planetary poser. How puzzling. Perhaps a phonemic path can be phrased... with a little postulation.
