Alto's Odyssey (Series) Review
Posted: 19 months ago, last updated 11 weeks ago.
Alto's Odyssey follows up to Alto's Adventure that extends the beautiful snowboarding down mountain descents, dunes and canyons. This time there are hot-air balloons, moving grind rails, swirling wind vortexes, rushing water and wall riding. New dynamic lighting and weather effects like sandstorms and shooting stars add to the visuals.
Both Alto's Adventure and Alto's Odyssey are available in The Alto Collection on Xbox, PlayStation 4 and on Nintendo Switch.
The Alto Collection
This game is free to play. Does not offer in-game purchases, 'loot boxes' or 'battle/season passes'. Alto's Adventure is free on Android, with free in-app purchases. You can buy Alto's Odyssey and Alto's Adventure in The Alto Collection on console.
Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 4+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. Although it will take more skill to really perfect high scores, very young players can enjoy the feel or skiing down slopes at high speed, chasing llamas.
There is no reading in the main game, but a lot of small text over backgrounds in the Workshop upgrade area and Your Score area. Menus are clearer text. The player character is particularly small. You can earn different characters, some of which are more visible, but these are not all available from the start. There are audio cues for your speed, jumps and power-ups, but not for upcoming visual hazards.
