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.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s hard to see during the day because there’s not enough differentiation between actual obstacles and the background scenery. At night, it’s almost impossible to see Alto. Additionally, the game zooming in and out every time you jump, the bird that follows you right above your head that is the same size as Alto, and the (to my memory) smaller size of Alto just add up to a very visually frustrating experience. It’s just hard to make out what’s happening on screen.
I really liked the first game, and wanted to like this too, it’s just hard to focus on the playing when you can’t really see anything. I can’t imagine how visually impaired people could play this. Maybe all this is because I’m playing on a phone, and it’s different on an iPad, I don’t know.
I completed Alto 1, and I appreciate the added game elements of the sequel; of course the music is fantastic as usual. I just didn’t find this sequel to be as accessible as the first due to the visual problems laid out above. I eagerly look forward to the next release from this game developer, whether it be another “Alto” installment or something new entirely.
would be a perfect game if it ran well
Alto’s Adventure is my favorite mobile game of all time, and basically a perfect game in my opinion. Alto’s Odyssey should be an even better game, as it’s essentially just an improved version of the last game. However, there’s a serious problem with this game that I noticed immediately, and it makes me not enjoy playing it at all. While Alto’s Adventure ran perfectly on my iPhone 6s, making it a wonderful, zen-like experience, Alto’s Odyssey does not run well on my phone at all. It hitches constantly, and can’t achieve anything close to a smooth framerate. There’s nothing satisfying about playing the game in this state, which is a shame since it should be just as satisfying as playing Alto’s Adventure is. Needless to say I’m very disappointed by this, and until the game is optimized better or has an optional lower-graphics setting that runs better, I’m probably not going to open the game again. I understand that the creators wanted to improve the graphics for this new game, and that my phone is not the newest model so maybe I shouldn’t expect it to run perfectly. But the game is advertised as being compatible for phones as far back as the iPhone 5s, and my model is just 2 years old, so I should have been able to safely assume that it would run well on my phone. I kind of feel like I wasted my money here, but I’m still rating it 3 stars for now because I’m pretty sure this will be a perfect game if (hopefully when) it is better optimized.
Developer Response ,
Hi there! We recently launched an update (version 1.0.2) which optimizes performance and gets rid of a lot of the frame drops mentioned in your review. We're so sorry for the less than optimal experience at launch, and hope this goes some way to addressing that. If it does, and if you'd like, returning to the App Store to amend your review helps us a great deal. Thanks so much for your time.
Still worth getting!
Hello, I would like to share my story with the game that I believe is a little bit more unique than most other players. As some of you may know, Alto’s Odyssey is the sequel to Alto’s Adventure, which was first published in 2015. I played AA (Alto’s Adventure), and fell in love with it, however I never purchased it or AO (Alto’s Odyssey) until recently. This was because I first played the two on a hacked client which allowed me to play for free. Since it was a hacked client, it meant that my data on the game would be wiped whenever the client had to shift to a new site or whatever they did when they risked being exposed. I played AA and AO over and over and over again but never became bored of either, which made me start to think; “hey, maybe this game is worth buying”. I had never gotten past level 30 on either game because of how often the client had to switch and that frustrated me, to the point where I stopped playing both of them, up until 2022. I decided to buy them on a whim because I had forgotten then remembered AO and had felt quite nostalgic about it. Buying this game and playing for the first time in years was an amazing feeling and I can confidently say I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment, this game is worth the $5 you spend on it, without a doubt. P.S: canyons best biome
