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.

Ratings and Reviews
I think I’ll just do one more slope
An amazing sequel, I does show how they have built upon the previous game, with new abilities and environments.
However while this is still a beautiful game I don’t find it has jaw dropping as the first. There I could stop any where with any weather and I could screenshot it. Here, I find myself ignoring it, and I think it is the weather. Both sandstorms and rainstorms wash out the colour and the contrast, it gets to the point where I restart the app to get back to blue skys. I understand that there needs to be change and rain is apart of all three environments but it is detrimental to gameplay, perhaps more light on the ground, this could preserve the atmosphere that is part of the game put allow the player to see the course in these situations.
I will summarise that this is a wonderful game, I remove a star for the above issue but it does not deserve to lose more than that. Thank for not have micro transactions. I wish you good luck with this and all your future games that I hope to be playing.
Even better than the original, at least in my opinion
I loved Alto’s Adventure. I played through every level collecting every character, and still played a little beyond when I’d achieved all the objectives. The only gripe I had was that often deaths occurred when you sent your character flying off a ledge, pulled off multiple backflips, sensed it was time to land, and... oh, there’s no ground, only a chasm.
In Alto’s Odyssey, I’ve experienced fewer unlucky deaths, but a slight increase in unskillful deaths, which makes it much more satisfying to play. The objectives to gain characters are all still here, as are the chases (now with lemurs rather than elders), and there’s some new gameplay thanks to added features such as wall riding, streams/pools and the mysterious radio to summon extra items to parachute from the sky. There is much more variety to the scenery and it’s more beautiful than ever.
I read a few other reviews before buying that criticised the game due to difficulty in boarding through sandstorms or night - but whilst this is harder than when it’s sunny and daytime, I never felt that I couldn’t see things to control them - it gives it variety, and the game doesn’t throw this at you too often anyway.
Having played the sequel, I can’t see myself going back and playing the first version again. I suppose this is the best recommendation I can give it - I love it, it’s money well spent, and in my mind at least it’s an all around improvement :)
This game is incredible
After finding out that there would be a sequel to “Alto’s Adventure”, I was extremely excited to see what it could hold.
Opening the game for the first time is an experience in itself as it immediately shows off the amazing art style and graphics with vibrant, warming colours.
The tutorial feels kind of long and unneeded for someone who has played the last game (apart for all of the new features) but is still intuitive.
As for the new features, they have really added to an already amazing game. Personally, I love the balloons, wall riding and biomes, however I am not a massive fan of the whirlwinds/tornadoes as they take away from the flow and satisfaction of the game.
Overall, this is definitely a game worth playing and I highly recommend playing with headphones as the sounds are really immersive.
