In the late 1990s, a point-and-click adventure game came out on PC that allowed gamers to spend some time in the shoes of a magical art student. The epic journey of April Ryan made waves because it was one of the first times that a female took the lead in an adventure game role. The witty protagonist and the complex storyline made the game a cult classic. Last week, the game’s original developer, Funcom, ported the original to iOS. Now, you can replay the beloved classic over and over again anywhere you want on your iPad.
The Longest Journey starts you off in the middle of April’s dream. She is transported to a magical world where she learns a few things about her destiny, which she promptly ignores when she wakes up, assuming it was nothing more than a dream. After a couple of waking moments that include dreamlike events, April discovers she has more power than she realizes.
