February 10, 2023

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic original, Myst Mobile has arrived on the on the App Store.

If you’re not a gamer, the original Myst remains an iconic puzzle game. In the remastered version, you’ll head to the titular Myst Island and unravel the mystery and a story of ruthless family betrayal.

Along with exploring the beautiful surroundings, you can also find different puzzles to solve. Solving those will allows you to explore more of the island and reveal methods to reach other worlds called Ages.

While the original was made with static environments, the new title has been revamped with the Unreal Engine to some fantastic results. There is also new sound, interactions, and even an optional puzzle randomization option.

Myst Mobile is for the iPhone and iPad. It’s a free download. You can explore Myst Island for as long as you’d like.

To explore the Ages of Myst Island, you can unlock that with a $14.99 in-app purchase. For a limited time to celebrate the launch, that’s been dropped to $9.99.

You’ll need an iPhone or iPad with an A12 Bionic or later (or M1/M2) or later to play the game. So as long as you have a modern iPhone or iPad, you should be good to go.

Anyone with an M1 or M2 in their iPad is due for a great treat. Those tablets will default to the Epic graphic settings, the highest graphics settings of Myst on any platform. Developer Cyan says the graphics wit the M2 chip on the current-generation iPad Pro rivals what’s seen on a console.

Along with touch controls, you can play the game using a MFi gamepad and keyboard/trackpad input from the IPad’s Smart and Magic Folios.

Whether you’re a long-time fan of the classic game or have never experienced Myst, Myst Mobile is a great way to explore the mysterious island for free.
