App description: "Riven: The Sequel to Myst" - made especially for iPad! The epic island Age of Riven with all of its rich, meticulous attention to detail, now closer than ever.

Taking up where Myst left off, Riven set an amazing new standard for design, aesthetics, and immersion in gaming. Remember Atrus trap book, the Moiety intervention, the mag-lev ride, the Jungle village, Catherines prison, Gehns Age, the Wahrk throne? Now the entire Riven adventure can be experienced from wherever you are.

This is the original Riven - with sights and sounds that have been remastered and meticulously re-assembled for a remarkable experience on your iPad. Everything that you remember from the original Riven in an intimate new format where every aspect is explored with a simple touch or swipe.


- All the original Ages & gameplay
- Highest quality images
- Improved music & sound effects
- Updated movies & animations
- Auto-save
- "Bookmark" system to save & restore progress
- Swipe to turn
- Game Center achievement support
- Hot Spot hints
- Integrated Hint Guide
- Works on all iPads (1st generation to iPad mini)


Riven for iPad is as large as an App can be. Weve managed to optimize Riven from its original DVD size to a little under a 2 gigabytes. Please be patient - download times and syncing times can be longer.

Because of the way iOS devices install apps, you may need extra free space on your device to install Riven. Once it's installed you can use the extra space again.

Awesome. Really been waiting for this one since I finished Real Myst. Almost bought it on GOG.com a few weeks ago, but I'm glad I waited.

Yes, looking forward to getting back into Riven again after many years. The iTunes link above is taking me to realMyst, but I guess that's just because the game isn't out yet in all regions.

Current Favourites - Lara Croft GO, The Room Three, Crashlands, Assassin's Creed Identity

Oh man, can anyone confirm that this is Retina for iPad 3 and 4?

I absolutely loved this back when it was first released for PC.
