What's New

Version 1.6.2

Even with the recent release of Alto's Odyssey, we wanted to make sure players are having the best Alto's Adventure experience possible. In this update:

• 3D Touch toggle disabled by default to avoid confusion about wingsuit activation.
• Dimmed the Home Indicator on iPhone X for a less obtrusive play experience.
• Fixed a bug that caused iCloud, Haptics, and 3D Touch checkboxes being hard to tap on iPhone X.
• Implemented a consistent icon next to player names on the leaderboard screen.
• Quick Character Select (long press on character icon) will now dismiss properly if you lift your finger during the animation.
• Haptics toggle button will now display properly on iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
• Corrected an issue with the Gift Shop that was causing incorrect cart data to display after starting a fresh cart.

Editors’ Choice

In this gorgeous twist on the infinite runner, you guide an agile snowboarder down a never-ending mountain, pulling off backflips over icy chasms and grinding along rooftops in sleepy villages. Simple one-finger controls make it instantly accessible, but tackling each level’s trio of challenges requires deft reflexes. With its exquisitely rendered visuals, soothing music, and finely tuned gameplay, Alto’s Adventure is simultaneously serene and exciting.

Oh man that's good

This game. This. H*cking. Game. Oh man, where do I start. How about this? I love it. It is amazing and awesome. And I very much love it. I'd give it five hundred stars if I could. The music is calming and beautiful. The artwork and animation are flawless. The backgrounds are incredible. And the gameplay is simple, smooth, fun, and I love it. I love it to bits. If this game was a person, I would take it snowboarding with me, because this game, as I am a quite a snowboard enthusiast and participant, grabbed my boredom by the throat, threw it in a trash can, and presented me hours of fun. Also, did I mention that this game's design and visuals are so beautifully done that it could bring a tear to the eye of a grown warrior. Oh man, I haven't said anything about zen mode, have I? Well, zen mode is almost cooler than the regular thing. There's no losing, and they weren't kidding when they said headphones were recommended. The music is so beautiful. I just can't stress enough at how beautifully made this game is. To even call it a game is an understatement. It's a work of art. So, just to summarize, I love this game. It's dope. And I'm definitely buying Alto's Odyssey.

Edit: The wing suit adds a whole other level of fun. And the bad reviews must be outdated, because I find that the wingsuit is exactly like the game: Flawless and amazing.

Seriously buy this game it is dope.

Does not deserve the bad reviews.

I’ve seen a couple reviews about the wingsuit activating and deactivating randomly. Let’s clear that up. The wingsuit is toggled through 3D Touch, so when you press hard on the screen it toggles it. There’s also a setting under Settings to turn this behavior off. There will also be a button on the right side of the screen that also toggles it, so turning off the setting will not stop you from using the wingsuit. (The wingsuit is available after level 30, so if the setting isn’t there when you start, maybe it’ll appear once you unlock the wingsuit.) I wish Snowman would reply to the reviews to clear their name, but it doesn’t look like that will happen.

That being said, of course I think Alto’s Adventure is a beautiful game. I’m not usually very fond of arcade-like games, but this one has stuck with me for a long time. You’ve probably already heard of the graphics/artwork. It’s also a well-polished game and feels good to play, especially with friends. Look out for new games by Snowman because the previews on their website look good. Development for those games was probably funded by this game’s sales.
