Infamous early nineties CD-ROM game The 7th Guest will pop up on the App store in December, original creator Trilobyte Games has announced.

The iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad port will be the original in its entirety with reworked touch screen controls and a revamped UI, according to Touch Arcade.

What is 7th Guest? It was one of the first CD-ROM games and, along with the seminal Myst, helped usher in a new era of videogames packed with full motion video.

Published by Virgin Games, 7th Guest was packed with puzzles players had to solve as they explored a creepy mansion. Moneybags Bill Gates called it "the new standard in interactive entertainment".
