Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Alto Collection (2015) is a series of games including Alto's Odyssey and Alto's Adventure. Both are action traversal games where you explore beautiful mountains, dunes and canyons on a snowboarding journey full of serenity and secrets. All you have to worry about is tapping to jump to avoid chasms, rockfalls and other hazards. It's simple and moreish due to the stunning landscapes and to a feeling of flow as you charge down the mountain, but there’s a real skill to doing it well. Alto’s Adventure is a good first sports game because it’s simple to control but requires a deep understanding to master.

Alto's Odyssey follows up to Alto's Adventure that extends the beautiful snowboarding down mountain descents, dunes and canyons. This time there are hot-air balloons, moving grind rails, swirling wind vortexes, rushing water and wall riding. New dynamic lighting and weather effects like sandstorms and shooting stars add to the visuals.
