User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
I’ve seen a couple reviews about the wingsuit activating and deactivating randomly. Let’s clear that up. The wingsuit is toggled through 3D Touch, so when you press hard on the screen it toggles it. There’s also a setting under Settings to turn this behavior off. There will also be a button on the right side of the screen that also toggles it, so turning off the setting will not stop you from using the wingsuit. (The wingsuit is available after level 30, so if the setting isn’t there when you start, maybe it’ll appear once you unlock the wingsuit.) I wish Snowman would reply to the reviews to clear their name, but it doesn’t look like that will happen. That being said, of course I think Alto’s Adventure is a beautiful game. I’m not usually very fond of arcade-like games, but this one has stuck with me for a long time. You’ve probably already heard of the graphics/artwork. It’s also a well-polished game and feels good to play, especially with friends. Look out for new games by Snowman because the previews on their website look good. Development for those games was probably funded by this game’s sales.
Let me just add my glowing review to all the others. This is the most unique app game I have ever played. It’s just lovely. It’s exciting at times yet always serene. I was already planning on a five star review, and that was before I realized there is a Zen mode. It was also before I realized you can upgrade and buy things with your coins to help you get through the quests a bit easier. The music is absolutely perfect for this game. It’s also easy to play and figure out, but the quests get progressively more difficult without being overwhelming or frustrating. Zen mode is so nice if you just want to zone out peacefully for a few minutes. This is a game that I will come back to again and again!
Update: Broken on iPhone. Finally saved all the way back up to purchase the Qing suit AGAIN only to find that it activates and deactivates at random, causing you to crash and making the game unplayable when you have a wingsuit available. This game is so broke, and feedback appears to be ignored by the devs. Avoid! 🤬💩👎🏻 I really liked this game. It’s beautiful, hypnotic, and relaxing. Then, almost precisely as I was admiring how polished it is, the wingsuit which I had saved 7500 credits for (the most expensive unlock in the game) and purchased suddenly disappeared from my inventory, requiring me to save up another 7500 for it a second time. I have the Game Center achievement for obtaining and using the wingsuit, but it’s just *poof* gone from gameplay as if I had never purchased it, occurring right in between two uninterrupted games. One game it’s there, the next it’s not. My theory is it has to do with syncing between two devices. My iPhone’s copy must have overwritten my progress on my iPad while I was playing? I’ve re-synced everything through iCloud but it just doesn’t come back. Brutal bug. If the devs can restore my progress I’ll update my review, but I haven’t found a way to contact them for support. For now my trust in the game is lost. No matter how good any game is, if your progress deletes itself seemingly at random how can you ever progress properly?
I am mostly enjoying this reboot of Alto’s Adventure, a game I also enjoyed a few years ago but feel that the extent of the changes seem somewhat more hyped than real. I like the new biomes with their distinct features, but there were also different terrains in the old game and I hope that more biomes will be added as we go along. Similarly, it would be nice to have new riders in addition to the ones from AA. The use of balloons and wall grinds is new, clever and fun. My main complaint is that the “tips” that appear at the inevitable end of each run get old very fast (especially to someone already familiar with the general game play) and are now very irritating. There should be a way to say “do not show again”. I’ve taken to switching to various foreign languages to reduce the annoyance of the endless repetition of useless “advice”, but it is an imperfect solution. A minor flaw is that the color of text and of the background sometimes are too similar for legibility - that should be fixed.
I loved this game until you had to unlock the wingsuit. Once unlocked you have to use it and it activates all by itself. It has caused me to crash so many times while trying to do backflips off of grinds and other big jumps. There really needs to be a way to deactivate it. I barely play the game anymore because of this agitating ability. The previous review was from a year ago and I still feel the same way. I attempted to give the game another try; the wing suit completely ruins the game. The fact that if I have the wingsuit available for use and I am in the middle of trying to do a flip, the wingsuit will simply activate. There is no need for the incessant ability that activates itself. It forces it functionality upon the user, ultimately taking away a user based interaction. The fact that it’s such a fundamental part of the game and that it is embedded into the game without any warning with regard to game play and rider functionality is a joke and ruins this potentially incredible game.
Above the placid ivory snow lies a sleepy mountain village, brimming with the promise of adventure.
