Riven out now on iPhone, first app over 1GB

That’s big, quoth the Riven

Product: Riven | Developer: Cyan Worlds | Publisher: Cyan Worlds | Genre: Adventure, Retro | Networking: wireless (network)
For: iPhone   Also on: iPad

The sequel to brain busting puzzle adventure Myst is out now, as follow-up Riven hits the iPhone and iPod touch App Store.

Those with lower capacity devices or stringent bandwidth caps should watch out, though: the massive app clocks in at just over a gigabyte.

With its full motion video and high quality audio Riven easily takes the crown as the biggest game on iTunes.

So, developer Cyan Worlds warns that it's best to download on your PC or Mac via iTunes, and sync across. The game is “theoretically possible via a wireless connection,” says Cyan, “but... uh... well... you really don’t want to.”

You’ll also need about two gigabytes of space free while the game installs, but you’re free to fill that gap back up again when the game’s ready to play.

Giant file sizes aside, Riven is a first-person puzzle game that has you hot footing it around a mysterious island. You’ll be picking up objects, pulling levers, and solving obtuse head scratchers as you contend with the power-hungry ruler Gehn.

The app features achievements in Game Center, multitasking, and auto-save, as well as a bookmark system for manually marking down your progress. You also have the ability to zoom in to see more detail, and new hot-spot hints not available in the original PC release.

If you have the space, and the patience, you can download the monster game Riven now on iPhone and iPod touch for £3.49 / $5.99 / €4.99.

The HD version of Rage was over a gig, as is Puzzle Quest 2, and Navigon...
