Relive 1993 With Myst, Now Available on Android for $6.99

Nothing will transport you back to 1993 quite like Myst can. For everyone who was rocking this game way back in the day, the title is now available on Android for $6.99, thanks to publisher Noodlecake and the studio team at Cyan. 

With realMyst, you can expect to find the same puzzling adventure you had in ’93, but this time, navigational controls have been switched up to better accommodate touch screens. With the new controls, players will touch and hold the screen to move, then swipe around to change direction. It takes a solid minute to get used to, but once you get the hang of it, you will be navigating the maps in no time. If touch controls aren’t your thing, the game offers Bluetooth controller support, including SHIELD support.

If you are like me and never got around to completing Myst because a few of the puzzles were simply too hard, this release has a built-in Hint Guide, just in case you find yourself stumped. However, please, attempt to solve them yourself, it’s much more rewarding.

Here’s the full list of features, plus a Google Play link below.


  • All of the original Myst Ages and bonus Rime Age content
  • Bluetooth controller support for Android phones and tablets, including NVIDIA Shield
  • Dynamic 3D environments and sounds
  • Simple navigation – touch and hold to move, swipe to turn
  • Advanced navigation – run, move backward, invert look
  • Bookmark feature to save and restore progress
  • realMyst Hint Guide in case you get stumped

On top of this news, Riven is also planned to arrive on Android “soon.” Heck yeah.

    Would’ve been better if they had ported it to VR and upped the graphics.

    I remember playing this and commander keen….those were the good ol days.

    • …and typing keen4e.exe into DOS…and the pogo-stick…and the double bounce! Those *were* the days 🙂

  • I’d prefer good ports of the original FTL games, Sun Dog, Dungeon Master and Chaos Strikes Back; I know they’re all possible to play with emulators, but the emulator controls suck.

    Man I’m old.

    Endlessly clicking on almost static pictures…Ugh. The early 90’s had other, much better games.

    If I really want to relive 1993, I’ll put on the Black album by Metallica and drink a wine cooler.

      this is an updated and reworked, totally 3d version. you can play it like any other modern first person game now.

  • huskerhog

    My first computer game.

  • markwebb

    I never did finish that game: maybe now I can.

  • I have a hard time trusting 3rd party ports after the DS and 3DS ports. Especially for 7 bucks for a game I’ve bought many times.

    technically you can beat the game by playing only the tile puzzle in the library/study…amirite?

    still…..this game was so freaking awesome back in the day….

    • Yep. When I was a wee stupid lad who couldn’t figure out the tone puzzle in the shuttle, that’s how I did it.

    • Adam W

      True. Took me about a week to beat this game when I was in high school.

      Now that I still remember how to find the instructions for the tile puzzel, I can “beat” the game in about 3min. Don’t know if $6.99 is worth the nostalgia.


    I remember playing this on my friend’s Tandy. Good times.

  • Puck85

    This is great, but the game is worth a real replay with the Masterpiece Edition, imho.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Oh look another full blown game that isn’t the price of a $10 endless runner.

  • mark555055d

    oh shoot.
