I am new to Myst on the ipod touch. I got the matches out of the safe, but I can't light the furnace. I've tried dropping it everywhere! I've tried turning on the gas, turning off the gas, dragging to see if I need to open a door first..what else can I try?

Try the Spoilers, Hints and Tips iPhone section; I think they have links to hints pages there. Good luck.

Oh, duh! I'm an idiot! Thank you! I kept thinking it was something simple. Boy was I right!
Thanks again!

This part was a weird trip for me. I had distinct memories of the original Myst (and also realMyst) where your cursor becomes the match automatically... so I kept trying to strike nothing against the matchbox, repeatedly, which was of course registered as a swipe to make me turn around.

I did that quite a few times before I realized the onscreen match was an object I could manipulate, and not just a "you have a match" icon :oops:

I had played Myst sometime ago also and didn't remember doing anything to light the match so I thought it was something I wasn't doing right with the iPod touch. Anyway, thanks all and thanks for the welcome! I'll probably need more help as I go. I didn't finish the game before (due to pc upgrade) so have a lot to learn.

Ok, so when I open the safe, the matches automatically can be seen in the bottom right corner of the phone and the matchbox is in the safe. I can't figure out how to light the match on the box. I can't drop and drag the matches to the matchbox or the matchbox to the matches. I can't pick up the matches or the matchbox by touching or holding them down. I have tried turning the gas on first or not...but I can't get the matches or the matchbox to move. HELP!!! Thanks.

Hi porsche63,
[spoiler]when you open the safe the matchbox is seen ~ the matches are in in the box ~ you need to touch the box to get a match from it.
the match will appear at the bottom left of your screen, you need to drag that unlit match to the box and across the side to light it
it will return to the bottom of your screen.
then turn around and go to the furnace and drag the lit match to the pilot at the bottom left of the furnace unit you will see the flame when it's lit. [/spoiler]

Hope that helps

Thanks. The matches in the corner I thought I saw were actually the door handle.
