Updating from 2 to 4 stars w/ recent update


Version 1.0.3 addresses the performance concerns from my previous review, so I'm changing my rating from 2 to 4 stars.

I still would like to see some of the other UI issues addressed, but this performance update makes the game playable and allows the utter charm and delight of this title to be experienced.

Keep it up, Team Snowman!

Still could use a little attention to detail


Performance is great now with the recent update. Now it's as fun to play on the Mac as it is on iOS. Still could use some things like trackpad gestures to navigate the menus and some indication of how to use the wingsuit with the keyboard (Shift).

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. We're glad version 1.0.3 resolved your framerate issues. Another way to activate the wingsuit is to use the secondary click on your mouse or trackpad. We're thinking of ways to show these alternative controls without complicating the main tutorial.

too slow to play, brings the rest of macbook down too


Firstly this game lags too much to be able to play it. Secondly, my itunes started to lag in a similar manner (the video seemed to sluggishly skip to the point where the audio was frustratingly out of sync) after downloadting this game. The problem with my itunes video was instantly fixed once Alto’s Adventure was completely deleted and removed from my Macbook.

Developer Response

We're sorry about that experience. Is this happening with the latest version, 1.0.3? If you contact us by email at or @builtbysnowman on Twitter we'll be able to figure this out for you.
