You might have missed the fact that this classic adventure game was released on iOS
, but just in case, here you go: it's available now
for iPhone and iPad. According to reviews on the store, this is a faithful recreation of the old full-motion video game
from back in 1993. The game has you wandering around a mansion trying to solve puzzles, with a story slowly displayed through video clips featuring real actors in a real setting. The game was quite innovative for its time, being one of the first games to be distributed on CD-ROM. Unfortunately, the main reason for that was because the videos took up so much memory, and weirdly, iOS device owners are currently facing that same problem
-- the game needs 623 MB free on your device to install.
But it is an interesting game from the start of the modern PC gaming era, and if you're already a fan of The 7th Guest, you'll definitely want to pick this up and play it on Apple's platform. The game is US$2.99 on the iPhone
and $5.99 on the iPad
. Andy Williams actually sings about "spooky ghost stories" for Christmas
, so if you need one of those to play through this holiday week, try your turn at being the 7th Guest at Old Man Stauf's house.
