Remember back when that new fangled CD-ROM technology was just starting to make an impact on the PC market?  Suddenly developers went from having to squeeze their software onto floppy diskettes to having virtually unlimited storage space.  One game that redefined this era in PC gaming was a little game by the name of Myst.  Taking advantage of CD hardware, the game was one of the first puzzle/adventure games to feature a fully rendered three dimensional world.  It was technology far ahead of its time.

Fast forward nineteen years, and developer Cyan Worlds is bringing the game to a completely new audience on iPad as realMyst.  Designed for iPad 2 and newer, the developers are taking full advantage of the hardware, allowing players to navigate the world, without loading, for the first time ever.  It is awesome to see that this classic has been reborn for a completely new generation of players to enjoy.  You don’t want to miss out on this chance to interact with this piece of history.

Five For Friday: Week Of June 15

There’s a slight iPad bias in this week’s Five for Friday. Never fear, iPhone and iPod touch owners, it’s not personal! We’ve still found some great apps for all types of iOS owners and hopefully all interests, also.

Pinstagram.co
Combine two of the biggest social networking phenomenons of the year, Instagram and Pinterest, and what do you get? Pinstagram! Admittedly, it’s not quite as clear cut as that with the app mainly focused on providing an attractive way of viewing Instagram on the iPad. Users can also pin their photos to their Pinterest board from within the app. Together, it’s an attractive way of viewing interesting images.

Myst is a hugely iconic game. Released over 20 years ago, the game has been seen on pretty much every device possible since. This version promises to be an improved release with the ability to explore anywhere without restriction while enjoying the full retina display support for the new iPad. It should prove the most advanced version yet.

Color Splash Studio
MacPhun have a great reputation for photography apps and its latest release, Color Splash Studio, continues that trend. The app allows users to convert images to black and white, while keeping specific areas in color. It’s the kind of tool that turns ordinary photos into something special with some extraordinary results. Even better, there’s integration with Instagram for extra ease.
