  • We’ve played our share of side scrolling endless runners, but Alto’s Adventure is definitely special, on account of going the extra mile to deliver superb artwork. We played it on the Allview X3 Soul, aka the locally integrated version of Gionee S6 and had a blast.

    Launched in February 2015 on iOS, the game feels like an artsy Ski Safari and it’s very simple: just go downhill, jump over obstacles and glide and that’s it. You’ll pass through alpine hills, a forest, rescue llamas and grind on roof tops and power lines. You can tap the screen once to jump and keep it pressed to do a backflip. That’s where the control setup starts and ends.

    We’ve got dynamic lighting here and weather effects, we can chain combos and there are 180 goals to meet. You can even get a wing suit and a coin magnet of sorts and everything is complemented beautifully by a fantastic soundtrack, that’s very dreamy. The graphics feel like Monument Valley, with the shadowy perspective view and that’s great. The environment also alternates between day, dawn and sudk beautifully.

    We give this artsy game a 9 out of 10 and it’s certainly a beautiful piece of work. You can get it here.
