Works and plays great

This is such a nostalgic game and I’m thrilled to find it on the App Store. Honestly at first I thought there was an issue with the sound but I had silent mode on. Turned silent mode off and the sound was fine. Going to be looking at Riven and realMyst next.I’m playing it on my iPhone X running iOS 13.6

Let down.

I played the original Myst when it came out. The immersion was amazing. This rendition leaves much to be desired. The graphics are very sub par. I think there must be a bug because I get no sound. It’s basically point and click and mostly a let down. I’d get my money back if I could.

Disappointing - hasn’t aged well, doesn’t use gestures/features

I loved Myst (and Riven) back in the day on my Mac. Sadly, this is a poor port. First, it’s an iOS (not iPadOS) game, so the graphics on the iPad are grainy. Second, the navigation is the EXACT same as the original and doesn’t use any gestures. Thus tap to turn 90 degrees in that direction, tap to move forward, tap to activate something. Compared to other games, particularly The Room, Myst is lame. No zoom in, zoom out, just finger taps instead of mouse clicks and poor graphics. These limitations take away the enjoyment of navigating and exploring, which is the whole point of the game.The clues are hard, but there are so many guides out there if you really want to find them. I wish that there were puzzles and in-game hints (like The Room) so I wouldn’t use my bored frustration to go look for a guide just to get through it.I suppose it might be okay on the iPhone, but then you don’t get the immersive experience of the larger screen. Myst should either be kept as a laptop game, or updated to use the screen for more than just a mouse-click stand-in (and add some puzzles, in-game hints, something). I played for an hour, then tried another day, then deleted the app.
