Customer Reviews

Zen Mode is Amazing.

This is literally the most relaxing and peaceful/happy game I have ever played. Zen mode is very calming and can relieve stress very easily and the regular gameplay works just as well. The controls are well thought out, the sound effects are fantastic, and the fact that your catching llamas makes it even better! What I really like is how essentially once you start the game your already fully upgraded. Yes you can buy some stuff from the shop to help you but there only 1 time use helpers. Theres no upgrade for permanent faster backflip or anything like that so right when you start the game your already enjoying the full potential of it. This is great because you dont feel like you need to play a ton and earn points to get something drastic that your missing from the experience. I haven't written a review for an app in years but this one deserves it completely. Use headphones for best experience! Get this.

Llama peace, snow peace.

I initially downloaded Alto while hunting for games and apps geared towards managing anxiety and mental illness. This game helped me tremendously in situations where all that was left for me to do was self-distract. Beautiful, cute and fun to play, the game has only improved with the recent addition of "zen mode" (enemies, points, and failures are removed from gameplay). Not only is "zen mode" an escape from an anxiety disorder, it proved to be a useful laboratory for improving my regular game play. Flips, jumps and flying may all be experimented with, without the fear of losing. So when I return to regular mode, I'm more skillful.

My only complaint with this new feature, is the use of the word zen- Zen/Chan is a religion, and to remove the word out of context to describe a video game is cultural appropriation. "Zen" is often appropriated in the design world- from a "zen" interior design, to a "zen" spa experience, to fonts, to candles. Perhaps what the designers really intended, was "Peace Mode".

Probably my favorite iOS game

I'm generally one to avoid endless runners, but this one caught my attention and I have not been disappointed. The graphics are beautiful, the controls are intuitive, and the overall experience is charming. Currently, the only issues are a pair of bugs that popped up in the last update: on occasion, smashing through rocks/campfires causes the screen to momentarily glitch into indistinguishable pixels, and sometimes it can be difficult to resume the game from the pause menu.
Also, to address the comments about the challenges being too challenging: that's kinda the point. There are one or two later in the game that could be dialed back a notch, but the earlier ones (even the two triple backflips) really aren't bad at all.
