    realMyst is THE way to play this game. It'll bring back all of the old memories you loved from the original while creating new ones. A must have for fans adventure/puzzle games, and a definite must have for fans of the original.

    If you missed out on the game the first time around, or simply came to gaming later on in life, this is both an excellent and depressing example of how far games could and should have evolved by 2012.

    Ethereally moving around the classic scenery can be a great way to spend a couple of hours. I rather solve the puzzles, and if I hadn't already played the original I would have a much harder time than I have.

    Despite some resolution issues, realMyst is a solid remake of a remake, improving slightly on a game that was itself a slight improvement on a game.

    Crisp graphics, lovely scenery make for a great port for realMyst. If I could only have one game on the iPad, this is the one. While I wasn't around for the first time Myst came out, I have been able to enjoy this version of it. Expand
