It looks like people are not over all the snow yet or maybe some don’t have snow where they are, and that is pretty much fueling all these snow-based games that come around this time of the year. The latest one to come to Android is a pretty popular title on iOS and considered one of the best-looking games from last year. Alto’s Adventure is now available for smartphones and tablets running on Android.
Alto and his friends are not just snowboarding for the heck of it. In fact, as they make their journey across the powdery expanse of the alpine hills, they will rescue runaway animals, outwit the mountain elders, and basically have a crazy adventure just trying to survive the changing elements as well as the passage of time on the mountain. The physics-based gameplay actually goes well with the beautiful but minimalist visuals.
The terrain that you’re navigating is actually based on real-world snowboarding. And to make it even more beautiful or terrifying or both, you get to experience full lighting and weather effects, like for thunderstorms, blizzards, fog, rainbows, shooting stars and so much more. The game has 180 handcrafted goals that you need to finish, choosing from six different snowboarders that have their own unique skills and abilities. You can also challenge your friends if you’re feeling a little bit competitive.
You can download Alto’s Adventure from the Google Play Store for free. Of course there are in-app purchases, but no need to buy them if you want to earn points and upgrades the old school way.
