There may be games similar to Alto’s Adventure. However, none can catch the essence it possesses. Firstly, the game has a brilliant level design that’s super easy to play and is tons of fun to enjoy. It’s a classic hill racer, but you’re on a snowboard.
The backdrop is gorgeous and changes as you move through the game. It is almost trance-like in its smoothness. Additionally, the game has a soundtrack that’s on an ultimately other level. If you don’t play this game with headphones, you won’t get the same experience.
The game is playable on almost any device you own, while iOS owners will have to pay for the App while Android owners can only but it for free. However, the game is worth a lot more than $5. It’s one of the best hill racer titles in the mobile gaming genre.
