Summary
  • Broderbund Software Inc's $59.95 Myst is an adventure game that encourages players to explore its impressive, three-dimensional world, with a surprising lack of life-threatening situations. Unlike other adventure games, the player is never trapped in dead-ends, and is not limited by a predictable story line, a set of icons to control the action or object-oriented puzzles. The game immediately captures users' attention with an impressive cinematic overture, and then players are transported to Myst Island to find the solution to a puzzle that is revealed as the game moves along. As users move through the game, they can explore by simply clicking on objects around them, such as hallways, doors and books. In addition to its outstanding graphics and consistently eerie and surreal details, the game also includes a variety of strange mechanical inventions and unexplained twists.
