An offer not to be Myst: adventure classic is now 59p/99c on iPhone
| Myst (iPhone)

Voters on OpenFeint’s Game Channel app have picked the latest game to be reduced – in this case, it’s Cyan Worlds’s Myst, the iOS version of the PC CD-ROM classic that sold about seventy quadrillion copies back in the day.

For the two people on the planet who haven’t heard of it, Myst is a point-and-click adventure set on a strange island, with plenty of exploration and puzzle-solving to be done.

It uses pre-rendered images, which dropped jaws at the time - the early '90s equivalent of LA Noire’s astounding facial animation - and they still look pretty impressive now.

It’s got better controls than the original game, too, and is generally regarded as one of the best versions of Myst released to date.

The game remains a divisive affair, loved by some and loathed by others, but there’s never been a better time to find out which camp you belong to. Point and click on the iTunes link below if you fancy being whisked away to a strange and atmospheric new world. And then you can download Myst.
