What’s New

Version 1.6.5

Hello Adventurers! With the release of iOS 14 we’re bringing a few improvements to Alto’s Adventure to make your journey through the mountains a smooth one. This update includes:
• A fix for a visual issue introduced with iOS 14 - this consisted of the characters and the environment looking a little blocky / distorted the further down the mountain you travelled.
• ProMotion (120hz) support for iPad Pro. This can be enabled in your in-game settings menu. Please be aware that enabling ProMotion may affect battery life.

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.

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.

Amazing, but...

This game is awesome!! The graphics and the story is amazing! However there’s still a minor detail that has to be a thing. So, in the stickers of Altos Adventure, you can see that there are other characters. But there isn’t any mode to change your character. So why are there those people in the stickers? Maybe you actually can change the character and I’m just being stupid. I don’t honestly know. Also, when you get to the police part, it gets a little intense. He’s so ridiculously fast I always get caught. Please, please maybe lower his speed and make a setting to change your character. (Or don’t make a setting if you already did.) Acknowledge this review. I still love this game.
