Join Alto and his friends and set off on an endless sandboarding journey to discover its secrets.

Soar above windswept dunes, traverse thrilling canyons, and explore long-hidden temples in a fantastical place far from home.

Along the way, you’ll grind across vines, bounce atop hot air balloons, ride towering rock walls, and escape mischievous lemurs – all while uncovering the desert’s many mysteries.


• A standalone experience. Alto’s Odyssey is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Alto’s Adventure, but you don’t need to have played one to enjoy the other.

• Easy to learn, difficult to master. At the heart of the Alto series is an elegant one-touch trick system. Chain together combos, and complete 180 goals — all with intuitive controls.

• Explore Biomes. From the dunes, to the canyons, to the temples, explore a rich and diverse landscape, with each area boasting unique visuals and gameplay.

• Newfound heights. Discover secrets in the sky with hot-air balloons, moving grind rails, and wall riding.

• Master the elements. In addition to dynamic lighting and weather effects like sandstorms and shooting stars, the desert is home to swirling wind vortexes and rushing water.

• Meet Alto and friends. Unlock six unique characters, each with their own attributes and abilities.

• Zen Mode. Complete with its own serene soundtrack, this relaxing mode distills Odyssey down to its purest elements: no scores, no coins, and no power-ups. Just you and the endless desert.

• Photo Mode. From the pause screen, get behind the lens and take stunning photos of your trip through the desert. Pinch, swipe, pan and zoom to frame the ideal shot, and share them with friends and family.

• Original music and handcrafted audio. Headphones recommended!

• Universal app with iCloud support. Play on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, and your progress will always be in sync.

Alto’s Odyssey is a premium game with no ads or in-app purchases. Purchase once, play forever.

Absolutely Gorgeous

This game is stunning and worth the money and the wait. I didn’t think any game could be more beautiful than the first, Alto’s Adventure, but I guess I’ve been proven wrong. The hot-air-balloons are a very cute idea and I love the first scene to when you open the app. And the tornados are very cool! The music is elegant and exciting whilst still calming. The main story is also exciting and daring yet then you have the Zen Mode, relaxing and a true healer to stress. And you know what? I’m extremely impressed with how the developers made beautiful graphics and still just as amazing gameplay, unlike Monument Valley another stunning game. Some other people who play his game are unhappy with with nighttime, but I think it is a perfect lighting to be honest, and a clever idea. But I do have one idea. In the last game, the main focus was to save Alto’s Llamas. Well, as you are still using the llama in your title in the A I suggest you could maybe, since the llama and camel have extremely similar features, add in camels for Alto. I think that’d be a great idea. As you can tell though, I still absolutely adore this game and the love graphics. Thank-you Developers for creating such a great creative game. I rate this a 10/5 stars really.

Most beautiful game series

This game series is my families favourite, and we love playing it on the Apple TV. But.... what I find annoying is you DONT get storms at midnight, you never SEE midnight because I usually get a sandstorm, and I would love to pass a full oasis. This game is amazing, but my favourite part, that seems to have the most problems for me, is the natural elements. It would be nice if they where completely random like rain at sunset instead of day. It would also be great if we could control how close we wanted to be to our character even when not taking pictures. That would be amazing! Please come out with a third if possible, maybe surfing? 😉😉😉 or if you create a different type of game, please add such beautiful and calming graphics and music.

P.s. I didn’t like the music as much as the first one, but it would be great if they’re where a few more natural sounds, and a setting that if you don’t want music you can choose to have a larger abundance of natural sounds 😉

It’s good, but not without flaws

Alto’s Odyssey is beautiful, is accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack, but much like Alto’s Adventures has elements of game design that just shouldn’t exist in a game.

Procedurally generated environments make for great variation and near unlimited gameplay, but it comes with a downside. Achieving a goal or any particular accomplishment becomes considerably more difficult, frustratingly so if the roll of the dice doesn’t go your way. Unfortunately the developers have tied this metric to progression so what starts out as an annoyance becomes an artificial wall. Your skills as a player cannot help you, the developers have quite simply tied progression to luck.

I do like this game and I want to love it but the glaring, frustration inducing gameplay issue described above has pushed me to a point where I no longer want to play. I’m being overly generous in giving the game 3/5 but also feel that I would be punishing those who put the best elements in the game far too severely by rating it any lower.

Ultimately a disappointment.

Edit 8/12 lowered rating to 2/5 due to game breaking crash at 35k meters.

Edit to my 8/12 edit 8/5/19: the game breaking crash at 35k meters has been fixed but the 2/5 rating will stand. I’ve been stuck on the same level since I wrote my review due to the condition required to progress not having occurred in 6 months playing the game 2-3 times a week.
