Awful on TV, good on phone 3/5
Either my Apple TV is faulty (wouldn’t be the first time), or this APP is just awful on the 4k TV. The other Alto works just fine, but this one has the character you are using just jump randomly and spin, ensuring a crash and an inability to complete any objectives. Super frustrating to play (but no one probably cares, the developers and Apple already got their money for it).
Works good on the phone. Beautiful game no matter what, I just wouldn’t buy it if you intend to use it on the TV.
Crashes all the time 1/5
After updating to ios 12 I can’t even open the game it always jumps out please fix it thank you
This game is broken. Built on one of the best iPhone games of all time (if not THE best), Altos Odyssey is almost like an extension of Altos Adventure. The only difference is the new surroundings, the wall-board option, and the glitches. This game is filled with so many glitches sometimes, I wonder how it even made it to a full published app. Until someone fixes it, I refuse to change my 1 star to a 5 star. And yes, I will know if someone fixes it because I play it almost every day.
Great game, a little room for improvement 4/5
Kudos for capturing the breathtaking excitement of snow/sand-boarding. Gorgeous visuals, addictive non repetitive gameplay. After two-ish months of dedicated (obsessive) playing, I finally finished. Top combo: 109,480 (multiplier 34). Some of the challenges are extremely frustrating, borderline sadistic. And for what? A mere congratulations. I still like to play this game, but there are no more challenges — why not build in a prize for finishing: the ability to script one’s own challenges. Like, one could set the app to keep track of the distance that you “hovercraft” in the wingsuit or count rock bounces, or bounces in a row, whatever. Finally, a few times I’ve crashed through the ground. Most of the time this happens while wingsuiting and leads to a crash (both literally and figuratively), but once I crashed through the ground and kept wingsuiting, i.e., the ground was moving above me. I wish I had explored this mystery underground more, but I ended up heading back up to the surface. Fun game.
iPhone 6 version needs an update 3/5
Played The first Alto without any issue. But Alto’s Odessey is giving me lots of stuttering gameplay. It makes it hard to time my jumps and flips with the type of stuttering I’m noticing throughout gameplay. Needs an update to better optimize us iPhone 6 users.
2 gripes 3/5
By Jake el Snake
Overall fun but 2 issues.
1. I’ve had the goal “wallride to backflip across a chasm” for over 2 weeks. That situation hasn’t presented itself once. Please include the ability to actually complete goals
2. Too often it feels like you need to choose between tricks and coins. Coins are often placed on downward slope of a hill, so you have to decide between getting trick points/speed or coins
Waaaaaay too frustrating 1/5
Well the one star review I left yesterday has somehow been removed so yeah that happened. Not worth your money. I payed for it and I’m not one who likes to waste their money but I’m on the verge of deleting this thing. The goals become ridiculously hard after a while. “Survive all day” really?! How does that kind of constraint make for a fun and relaxing experience? Spoiler alert it doesn’t! That and dozens of little things make you want to throw your iPhone/iPad against the wall. Just read the other negative reviews. Most of the 5 stars are probably either fake or the players are on some serious mood inhibitors. There is a “zen” mode which I finally found after a week. You have to click a barely visible arrow on the right side of the screen to access it. But there are no goals so no point. The developers need to find a middle ground between zen and insane.
Best $4.00 ever spent! 5/5
Wow just wow this is one of the best, most visually impressive games I have played all year. The graphics are stunning, the game mechanics are on point, and the whole experience is so intuitive. If you’re wondering which version of Alto is better, this one by far, is the better pick as it’s graphics are out of this world. Thanks for making an incredible gaming experience!
A Beautiful Game 5/5
Alto’s Odyssey is a true diamond in the rough. In the era of 5-minute-to-create, hyper-casual games with in app purchases testing your parsimony, it’s a good thing to see a game like this.
Just looking at the screenshots, you can tell it’s a work of art.
And it’s fun to boot!
Recommendation for change. 5/5
Simple: switch the placement of the photo button with the restart button.
Too many time I’ve restarted instead of resume.
great! but i need help PLEASE 4/5
i love love love this game! it’s so pretty and fun and entertaining i’ve been playing for months. right now i’m on level 49 and i’m having a lot of trouble w the 4 balloon bounce, even tho i’ve done it tons of times before. on my friends phone, he often has the option to pay coins to skip a level or get a revive after a level (he has an android) but on my apple phone (8) i don’t have either options nor have i ever. i REALLY need to skip this level and i’m playing the game less now bc i’m so frustrated and i want to move to the next level. please help!
Too Reliant on Probability 4/5
By Gentleman George
There’s no doubt that Alto’s Odyssey is a well crafted, fluid and visually appealing game. It’s weakness lies in its dynamic gameplay. Every game and level are unique, with different scenarios and obstacles each time you play. Unfortunately, this means the player’s success is as highly dependent on luck as it is in skill. At a certain point, repetition becomes key to achieving goals but only if your patience doesn’t run out first. Good luck... you’re going to need it.
This games is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
Loved the First Alto, Loved this One Too 5/5
This is a great game; Peaceful, addicting, and challenging by turns. Highly recommended for players of all stripes!
Really good except for a few key issues 2/5
First purchase from this developer but sad to say I’m a little disappointed :( Though the game truly is stunning, it becomes nearly unplayable during the night phase due to really low contrast. Additionally, it can be extremely difficult to discern rocks, making the game a bit more stressful/eye-straining than I’d like. With several other reviews stating the same, it makes me wonder if these concerns will ever be addressed. Otherwise a very enjoyable and relaxing experience :P
Not supported on all of our ipads 1/5
All of our iOS versions are 10.3.3 and still says the game is not supported on the device. I play on my iPhone and like the game, however would like it on a larger screen. We loved Altos adventure, and found the winged suit is easier to control on the iPad. I will not rate the game any higher until i can play on my iPad.
The games atmosphere is extraordinarily amazing.
Feedback for the developers 4/5
This game is more than likely my most played mobile game of all time. I managed to unlock the last character and buy 90% of the items in the shop so I felt I needed to give you guys my input. The job of a mobile game is to pass time while we are idle and the idea of this game executes it to perfection. However there are some issues, specifically with the reward system or aka the shop. Firstly, there is not enough variety. For a game which is essentially a dynamic repetitive experience, a grind, there needs to be more things to look forward to. And how hard could it be to slap extra things in there. There is so much opportunity to make up items and gadgets which are useful as well as cosmetic only items which are completely absent. You get the wing suit, the board, the radio and the compass. That is all, 4 things which you can easily acquire within the first few hours and after that it is all upgrades. Speaking of the compass, it is not a good idea to make the item use additional coins after you purchase it in a game which is only upfront cost to play. That essentially ruins it. 1000 coins to change the background is ludicrous. I’ve only used it I believe 2 times for the specific missions and I felt bad about it due to the cost. It actually won’t save you time at all because the cost is completely unbalanced. You will get faster to the biom of your choice as opposed to collecting another 1000 coins. The problem of poor cost balancing persists. The magnet costs up to 7500 to upgrade in the end but has anybody even done the math on how many runs it would take for this investment to break even? The upgrade uses coins to make you collect more coins but you will buy out the whole shop and I’m sure the additional seconds on the timer will not have recouped the invested amount. In essence, if you plan on making one of these again, invest more time in having more things to purchase and balancing out the cost of the items because they frankly don’t make any sense. That is the main problem of the game. Additional problems aren’t as big of a deal but some examples include balancing of some of the missions. While most of them are okay, I remember a specific one which required 2 rock bounces into a wall ride in one run! That was ridiculously hard to pull off and let’s face it, 90% of it is pure luck. There were other missions as well which were not properly thought out. The radio crates dropping too fast is also annoying even though there is a trick to loop with the wingsuit in order to get them. Overall this is an amazing game and it deserves 5 stars but I’m hoping to give you some honest criticism so you can further improve in the future and make a masterpiece!
Best Mobile Game 5/5
Almost Worth The Journey 4/5
I would have given it 5 Stars but after playing for about a month to complete all 60 levels of the game all it ended with was a screen that said congratulations you completed all goals... that’s it!? I guess it’s more about the journey my friend and not the ending... oh wise one.
Same game with different scenery 3/5
Wish they would have added new characters
Good but some issues 3/5
A decent game that’s good for passing the time, however I’ve lately had issues with a few things. For one if there’s a certain challenge that needs to be completed then you better hope the ability to do it shows up early or you’re in the right biome otherwise you have to wait a while to get there, also the wingsuit “box” you tap to activate it is way to big. I shouldn’t have to try and find a spot that won’t activate it on the right. I’ll be in the middle of a flip and it’ll just switch to it even though I did t ask for it. It should stay where it shows up and no where else. I can’t get pass a level because of this which brings me back to my first point. I’ve hit five wall rides in one combo and it still doesn’t update it. Hope the developers sees this and makes a patch
best game i’ve ever played 5/5
Fantastic and frustrating 4/5
By I can't think of a COOL nickname
I agree with the positive reviews of graphics and gameplay. No arguments.
But despite having unlocked all characters and completed all challenges, I can also agree with the comments of frustration involved in completing them.
Two things that could have alleviated or eliminated the frustrations are:
1. Allowing challenges to be removed via in-game currency (i.e. 10k/challenge). Enough to require extensive playtime, but also reasonable to keep players motivated.
2. Receiving new challenges as current ones are completed, rather than as sets of three. There have been several times I performed tasks/combinations (by luck/chance) only to find them as a future challenge requiring more luck/chance.
For what it’s worth... the final character is a NICE reward.
Great Game But... 2/5
I really have enjoyed this and Alto’s Adventure. They really are beautiful games, fun and usually my go to. Unfortunately, I’m getting fed up. This isn’t an irritation about “just not being able to beat a level,” but it’s not fun when a game makes you die (from falls) inconsistently and doesn’t actually give you opportunities to meet goals and move on. This has been noted by other users that I’ve spoken to and they have experienced the same thing. An example would be having wall rides be a part of a goal and there being absolutely no walls to ride over the course of multiple hours spent playing. It really kills the fun vibe of the game and quite honestly makes me not want to play anymore. I understand making goals difficult to attain and working for them, but it’s really not necessary to make them seem impossible and unattainable.
More biomes 5/5
I love this game. It is easy to learn, hard to master. Simple, yet elegant. It is my favorite game and definitely worth the $5.00. The only problem I have is that there are not enough biomes. My favorite biome so far is the dunes, because I like wall riding. After a while it gets kinda boring only being able to ride through 3 biomes. If only there were more...
Great sequel, except for the bugs 3/5
Love the first game and this game fixes some of the flaws of the original (all of the later characters are useful) while adding a lot of nice gameplay.
My big complaint about the new game is buggy physics. Almost every one of my high scoring games comes to an end when I fall through the ground or have a solid landing treated as a fall. This is particularly frustrating when trying to complete the later challenges.
Anyway, fix the physics and no question another nearly perfect game.
Be warned: Maya’s a slowpoke. 3/5
The game has a pleasant enough atmosphere and background music, with nice gradual introductions of new gimmicks and goals...up to a certain point.
Maya, the second character you unlock, is slower than Alto (the first and more well-rounded surfer). Her specialty is quicker backflips. However, one of her specific achievement goals necessary for the game to proceed is to jump over 3 chasms in a single run. The problem is, she’s so slow that she doesn’t have the necessary speed to clear even ONE chasm. At this point, the game changes from relaxing to rage-quitting. Thank goodness that the developer(s) added a Zen Endless mode, as it looks like that’s where I’ll likely spend the rest of my time from now on.
This is a really fantastic game, so much fun to play. I’m just bummed that I’ve finished all the achievements now! Please add some more levels soon :)
Great Game! But keeps crashing on me 2/5
It’s amazing it just crashes on me
Best game 5/5
The game is just great. Nothing to say about that. I only found a few glitches regarding the lemur running on grinds.
Issue with not properly registered achievements fixed. Thank you:-) 5/5
By Bosco 55
Five stars and more for Alto’s Odyssey! The issue with not properly registered achievements seems to be fixed. That’s awesome, thank you developers. I’m on level 32 now and there were no more glitches. I really enjoy this beautiful, absolutely stunning game. I agree with the reviewer who wrote: “This game is a phenomenal dive into a captivating world”. The graphics are beautiful artwork, the soundtrack is fitted perfectly for the game.
Doesn’t work with phone call 4/5
By P Bhullar
Why it doesn’t work with phone call on Iphone x version 11.4.1 ?
Beautiful Game-Wish I Could Turn Off Night 4/5
This is a beautiful game. The scenery is amazing and the gameplay is fun and smooth. I just don’t like the changing scenery. I love when it is day time, as it makes everything a lot easier to see. When it is night time, everything is too dark for me (even with my brightness all the way up). That is my only issue with the game. I wish there was a way to turn that off and only enable day time mode or something.
Great game but... 3/5
I love this game on my Apple TV but it freezes after some time and I have to delete it and reinstall. I will give it five stars when that is fixed.
Good game but glitchy 3/5
This is a fun game with a gorgeous aesthetic. I wish it varied a bit more from the original. The worst part is that it’s still a bit glitchy (but playable).
Super fun and relaxing! 5/5
My only issue I have with the game is wall riding is a bit wonky. especially when you’re going across a chasm and you have to try and wall ride from one wall to another. My game always thinks I’m doin a backflip. But that’s the only gripe I have. I love this game other than that! It’s gorgeous and I love the music.
It’s not the game we know and love 4/5
The game is great and the art style is on point.The terrain is beautiful but I feel the play style is just there as a endless runner.Not saying that the game is bad but as my dad used to say”the first one is always better”.Honestly I love this game but it was the llamas that made me say just one more turn. And now that the llamas are gone well.....
This game is good, I have nothing against it, but it’s the same as the original. I mean the EXACT same. I don’t think that I should have to pay 5.00$ for a game that I pretty much have already, and frankly, I don’t think that you should have to pay at all. There are better games for free. All in all, this game isn’t terrible, but make it different. Please.
Awesome game!!! 5/5
By isaac allard
At first I didn’t think it was going to be worth 5$ but it is. I’m really enjoying every part of the game.
Perfectly done! 5/5
Really love this game (on my iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV). It’s so well done. Such attention to detail. Perfect balance of fun and challenge. Keep it up!
This game would be pretty decent if there was an option to disable it getting dark. The first game Alto’s Adventure has the same problem it’s really fun until it gets so dark you can’t see much especially your character can’t tell where he is or if he’s upside down.
iCloud won’t sync!! 1/5
This is an amazing game when it works! I even bought it for my girlfriend! But I just beat level 4 on my iPad, then when I play on my Apple TV or phone, which are both connected via Apple iCloud, it still says I’m on level 4?! Please help!!! Fix and I’ll give 5 stars!
Audio bug 5/5
There’s a bug where the rain audio keeps playing even when it stops raining. Other than than, the game is amazing.
Keep up the great work!
A great improvement not detected by almost anyone... 5/5
I love to play Alto on TvOS. I have the Apple TV connected to my 5.1 Speakers through the receiver, and when I start to play, voila, my receiver switches to 5.1 audio. The lovely music of Alto in Surround experience is just great.This is a lack on a lot of games on the App Store but a lovely detail in Alto. It would be a nice upgrade to do the same in Adventure.
Love this improvement. Get 5 Stars!!!
The game 3/5
I played the other game until I unlocked everything once I saw this game I was so excited but after playing it it just looks like a retexture of the other game it’s fun but I wish there would be distinct features that are different from the other game.(and don’t just say everything looks diffrent)
Could use a better final character (spoiler alert) 5/5
I love the game. It has great resolution, a marvelous brand new environment, and calming music, but the characters are pretty much the same. Alto, Mía and the rest have the same skills just different clothing. The final character before in altos adventure Tupa could survive a chasm fall and had all the previous characters skills. The new character has the same thing except for the boosts from the engineer girl and doesn’t survive chasms but is friends with lemurs? For a game so delayed I expected a much better final character.
I just paid for it and I can’t even play it’s glitching like a mf it keeps freezing fix it.
Beautiful! And suggestion... 4/5
A beautiful game with amazing aesthetics and fun new challenges! My only suggestion for the makers would be to create a way to switch back and forth between playing Alto’s Odyssey and Alto’s Adventure all within the same app, or create an option that take you from one app to the other. Besides that, these are beautiful games!
