Unless you have lived under a rock, you know about Alto's Adventure, the beautiful snowboard game with a soundtrack so beautiful and well organized that it is almost incredible. That game has been one of my favorites ever since I was using an iPhone 5s, and I spent hours, weeks, probably months playing that game.
Then, in December 2016, Snowman, the developer behind Alto's Adventure, announced a sequel to the game. The new game, titled Alto's Odyssey, would set in the desert, with an equally striking background design and score. It was supposed to launch in the summer of 2017, but sadly it was delayed. When Snowman released a statement (in August 2017) that said "It takes time to build things right."
So when the game finally hit the App Store last month, I was pretty excited. Since I use OnePlus 5 now, and the game is not yet available for Android, I had to revive my iPhone 5s from the dead and play there. Let me tell you right now that it was worth it.
Alto's Odyssey is a game that has a surprisingly similar concept to the original and that's a great thing. It has simple controls, incredible gameplay, an aesthetically graphic environment And somehow, it's still as difficult to master as Alto's Adventure was.
I played it for quite some time during the last week and the more I played, the more I realized what Snowman meant by the line "It takes time to build things right." Alto's Odyssey took much longer than anticipated, but I'm glad it did. The game has been as perfect as one could wait and exceeded my already ridiculously high expectations.
Unfortunately, the game is not yet available on Android, but for such a good game, I'm prepared to wait. If you are using an iPhone, I suggest you go to shell out the money to buy Alto's Odyssey right now, you won't regret it; And for all the other Android users out there, just wait, you will surely get to Android.
