Soothing, serene, and straight-up beautiful, Alto’s Adventure is a delightfully mellow twist on the endless runner, tasking you with going the distance down the slopes as you snowboard and collect your runaway llamas. You’ll tap to jump and hold to perform backflips as you see fit, but the game isn’t overloaded with tons of tricks, power-ups, or distractions.
That’s a good thing, although some might find the core experience a bit simplistic. It is, but beyond providing an entertaining downhill experience, Alto’s Adventure continuously impresses with its gorgeous animation, dazzling weather and day/night transition effects, and ultra-catchy music. It’s also a very friendly free-to-play game, which fits well with its otherwise chill attitude.
