Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Couple of bugs to fix
When under high speed (especially after landing bonuses), the character wouldn't pick up any items including coins and abilities. (bug)
Weird boulder spawn during a grind. Is capable of knock off players while they are on grind. This shall be change to a boulder bounce instead of killing the player. (Bug)
Death on ramps sometimes fails to render the character. What i mean is that death on the edge of ramp might lead to resuscitation of the character with a snowboard, tripped again, resuscitate with board, tripped again… a fews time before actual death. Not really something that affects gameplay but fun to watch (Bug)
The landscape generator could sometimes generates chasms during a long fall. Usually, the zooming of the camera during a chasm encounter would alarm players, but this along won’t save them from game over unless they have wing-suit. (Improvement)
The angle of attack at which we bounce from a boulders determines our speed at which we could sometimes come to complete stop leading to immediate death by elder chase. (Improvement)
Wing-suit charge on paz shall be more generous, as i can easily activate it with other characters, but not paz. Can balance a bit more. (Improvement)
