Riven, the heavily hyped sequel to Cyan Worlds’ breakthrough graphic adventure game Myst, is now out for Android. The adaptation, from Noodlecake Studios, has been remastered from its original 1997 release on the PC to work on touchscreen devices. Noodlecake previously released the Android version of realMyst, a revamped 3D version of the original Myst game, in January.
The game basically begins where Myst left off, as you explore a mysterious series of islands full of odd looking artifacts, while you also search for clues to unlock puzzles. The Android version includes features such as a “Bookmark” system so you can quickly save and restore your progress in Riven if you decide to take a break. You can also zoom in anywhere in the game to get more information and clues, and there are even “hot spot” hints that will help out if you get stuck.
Since the game is being released in the Google Play Store, you will also get access to Google Play achievements that can be unlocked, along with an integrated hint guide. Noodlecake has priced the Android version of Riven at just $3.99 in the Google Play Store, with no other in-game purchases or ads, and that’s an excellent value for one of the best point-and-click adventure games ever made.
