The game was first released by developer Trilobyte back in 1993 for the PC exclusively on CD-ROMs, and was a massive hit at the time. In fact, it helped to boost the use of CD-ROM drives (remember those?) overall in PCs. The player takes on the role of a person who is wandering through a mansion, solving puzzles while also dealing with the haunted location and its ghostly residents. Developer MojoTouch has gone back and revamped The 7th Guest especially for Android devices:

  • Totally new, much praised, game play controls that were built from the ground up for touch-screens.
  • Hotspot based - no more pixel hunting!
  • All-new slick icons and animations.
  • Completely new map, which can be access directly while playing
  • Completely new game menus and save/load system
  • Four Music options: The praised, orchestrated, music score remastered or the original score in Midi recording, General Midi or Adlib
  • Much improved voice acting audio and all-new, optional subtitles
  • A stunning new HD graphic mode that up-scales the game beautifully to high-resolutions.
  • 27 Achievements to earn and share with your friends.
  • 'The Making of' featurette
  • 19 Delete Scenes and 33 Delete Audio Parts
  • Comprehensive Soundtrack: 36 Tracks to add to your music collection!
  • 'The 7th Guest' Novel (157 pages)
  • The Original Script (104 pages), 'The Stauf Files' booklet (20 pages), Original Game Manual (41 pages)
  • Optional retro settings: play with original graphics, original music and even the original controls (mouse pointer)
