Ratings and Reviews
Hasn't aged well, but doesn't matter
Myst was an amazing game back in the day when I first got a mac and played it on launch day. The game is still a great game for me (as well as it's four other installments), but it seems that many will not get into it because they expect a GAME out of it. It's not really a game, it's an EXPERIENCE! You need to explore, put together the nonverbal narrative, figure out where you are and what's happened, simply immerse yourself in the worlds you find.
Riven, Exile and End Of The Ages are also good, but I should warn you that those are REALLY hard compared to Myst. I beat Myst in roughly 10 hours without the hints (except when I needed to read colors, since I'm %100 colorblind), but in Riven, Exile and End Of The Ages I needed a partial walkthrough to get anywhere at all. Overall, a good introduction to a fantastic series, but know that you'll be doing some aimless wandering, and taking notes is essential...
I played this years ago. Going to buy RealMyst
It's Myst. There are decades of reviews that will let you know if it's the type of game you'll like. I loved it! 😍
If your phone can run RealMyst you should get that version. The improved graphics will be worth the extra $2. I own this app and remember that the world with the tree houses was impossible to navigate in this version without cheating and using the walkthrough. I am going to buy that one to replay it.
‼️💾SAVE💾‼️the game before you make any choices. There are a few endings and only one is correct. It's funny to try all of the wrong endings but only after you've finished the game correctly. Iirc the strategy guide will warn you not to get too clever too soon. I stumbled upon the clue to the final task on my first attempt about two hours into the game without realizing there was no way back. Bad idea 😉. Very glad I checked the strategy guide and it explicitly warns players not to complete that task. If you do that, you have to start the game over. Even if you don't plan on using the walkthrough, do glance at it to get an idea of where you shouldn't be fiddling around.
Loved this game as a kid and wanted to play again. Highly recommend if you like difficult puzzle games. Could not figure out the difference between this and “real Myst”. Would be helpful if this was described. I would have paid the $2 if I had known there was an extension to the game. Disappointed.
