First, Altos Odyssey works as a game. If you want to forget your troubles for a while and become absorbed in another world, you will find no better escape then this game. (As with other means of escaping one’s troubles, it does tempt one to over-indulge.) Second, it is simply beautiful: both the artwork and the music are first rate. They would capture your attention outside the context of the game. Third, it is a very well-designed computer application. Glitches are few, the interface is simple and intuitive, and one never feels lost. Finally, unlike many games, it does not invite you into an unhealthy fantasy. You don’t shoot, much less kill, anything. You don’t break anything except rock or two, and if you annoy a lemur, well he seems to enjoy chasing you. So instead of letting you escape into an adolescent dream of power and domination, as many games do, Alto’s Odyssey lets you escape into a dream of ever-increasing skill and the joyful experience of flying ever-more confidently. How lovely! I do have reservations about the wingsuit, which doesn’t work as well as the rest of the game or even make sense within the context of the game, but that is about my only quibble.
Alto’s Adventure is my favorite mobile game of all time, and basically a perfect game in my opinion. Alto’s Odyssey should be an even better game, as it’s essentially just an improved version of the last game. However, there’s a serious problem with this game that I noticed immediately, and it makes me not enjoy playing it at all. While Alto’s Adventure ran perfectly on my iPhone 6s, making it a wonderful, zen-like experience, Alto’s Odyssey does not run well on my phone at all. It hitches constantly, and can’t achieve anything close to a smooth framerate. There’s nothing satisfying about playing the game in this state, which is a shame since it should be just as satisfying as playing Alto’s Adventure is. Needless to say I’m very disappointed by this, and until the game is optimized better or has an optional lower-graphics setting that runs better, I’m probably not going to open the game again. I understand that the creators wanted to improve the graphics for this new game, and that my phone is not the newest model so maybe I shouldn’t expect it to run perfectly. But the game is advertised as being compatible for phones as far back as the iPhone 5s, and my model is just 2 years old, so I should have been able to safely assume that it would run well on my phone. I kind of feel like I wasted my money here, but I’m still rating it 3 stars for now because I’m pretty sure this will be a perfect game if (hopefully when) it is better optimized.
I had no idea this game came out until I was looking for a game that was similar to the original. Altos Adventure was one of the most beautiful and serene games that I’ve ever played and after beating that one, I was looking for something similar and luckily for me, Altos Odyssey came out. Odyssey is good because it drops certain parts of the last game that it could do without (namely the llamas), and builds upon the best parts of the game (power ups, wingsuit, biomes, etc). As the description suggests, the game is extremely easy to play, but difficult to master, as in the higher levels you almost need to assume what is ahead of you to complete certain challenges. You pay one price and its yours for life, which I would gladly pay again without hesitation. The only improvement in the game would be the new “Mysterious Radio” power-up. Every time I get the radio, my character is moving too fast for me to pick them up, and by the time they get on my screen, I’ve already passed them. Maybe tweaking the drop speed to character speed would remedy this issue. Otherwise the game is literally perfect, mechanically and visually.
I have played the first one back on 2015. I love the graphics that it plays very smoothly in my device. It took me 2 years to complete all achievements when I got a news that this game is having a part 2. Although, there’s no need to play the first one because there’s no story. You make the story with your imagination. Characters are very unique and you have to use them at your advantage to complete challenges along the way. Friendly advice, upgrade your magnet to be able to use it longer to rack up those coins. Since this game doesn’t have an in app purchase which makes me happy because this will make the game much more enjoyable and a good way to kill time. Whether you’re traveling from one point to another, waiting for appointments, taking a dump, you name it. The team creating this game may have pushed the actual release date but I really don’t mind. It just shows that they’re putting a lot if effort in this just to make it worth your while in purchasing this game. I assure you, this game is fun. That’s why I’m giving this a 5-star review. Good job!
I loved this game! I played it constantly after I got it and quickly grinded through 20 levels. I started having problems around level 20. Here and there I would jump over a rock so high and then land right in front of a rock that would be out of frame causing me to wreck. This has happened so many times I don’t know how frustrating it is to get so close to the end of a quest and then something happens you can’t control which brings me into my next problem. I got stuck on the get through all three biomes in one run quest. No problem right? Well after over a hundred try’s I find that some of the biomes don’t show up all the time. There was one run where I went through the same biome three times missing the temple biome. How am I supposed to beat a quest when it won’t even let me travel through them. Maybe I’m just not that good but these problems have actually made me stop playing the game. Sure I’ll get on when I’m really bored but even then I just get fustrated because both the problems just keep happening. I guess I would recommend this game but only if you are looking for a game to play when you’re bored.
Just beyond the horizon sits a majestic desert, vast and unexplored.
