Join Alto and his friends and set off on an endless sandboarding journey to discover its secrets.

Soar above windswept dunes, traverse thrilling canyons, and explore long-hidden temples in a fantastical place far from home.

Along the way, you’ll grind across vines, bounce atop hot air balloons, ride towering rock walls, and escape mischievous lemurs – all while uncovering the desert’s many mysteries.


  • A standalone experience. Alto’s Odyssey is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Alto’s Adventure, but you don’t need to have played one to enjoy the other.

  • Easy to learn, difficult to master. At the heart of the Alto series is an elegant one-touch trick system. Chain together combos, and complete 180 goals — all with intuitive controls.

  • Explore Biomes. From the dunes, to the canyons, to the temples, explore a rich and diverse landscape, with each area boasting unique visuals and gameplay.

  • Newfound heights. Discover secrets in the sky with hot-air balloons, moving grind rails, and wall riding.

  • Master the elements. In addition to dynamic lighting and weather effects like sandstorms and shooting stars, the desert is home to swirling wind vortexes and rushing water.

  • Meet Alto and friends. Unlock six unique characters, each with their own attributes and abilities.

  • Zen Mode. Complete with its own serene soundtrack, this relaxing mode distills Odyssey down to its purest elements: no scores, no coins, and no power-ups. Just you and the endless desert.

  • Photo Mode. From the pause screen, get behind the lens and take stunning photos of your trip through the desert. Pinch, swipe, pan and zoom to frame the ideal shot, and share them with friends and family.

  • Original music and handcrafted audio. Headphones recommended!

  • Universal app with iCloud support. Play on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, and your progress will always be in sync.

Alto’s Odyssey is a premium game with no ads or in-app purchases. Purchase once, play forever.

Updated on 17th September 2020

Hello Adventurers! With the release of iOS 14 we’re bringing a few improvements to Alto’s Odyssey to make your journey through the endless desert a smooth one. This update includes:

  • A fix for a visual issue introduced with iOS 14 – this consisted of the characters and the environment looking a little blocky / distorted the further through the desert you travelled.
  • A fix for crashes caused by various Bluetooth audio devices.

Alto’s Odyssey Reviews

Love this game, so chill and the music is great. Love the different characters and its so fun to see if we can get a new high score. 10/10 would recommend.

We loved Altos Adventure, and to see this sequel out is even better! We enjoy it just as much as Adventure, we’ve been playing it a lot, we have a high score of about 330,000. It is visually stunning, the music is great, and its art style is awesome.

We love this game, we played Altos A dventure when we were younger and always wanted to play this one. We got this about a year ago, and ever time we play itI WANT TO MAKE THIS INTO A MOVIE! Of course Im to young, but hopefully one day we can get into contact with you guys and make our dream come true. This is truly an awesome game and we thank you and all who worked on this game and Altos Adventure. You guys are AWESOME!

We love this game so much since 8 played the prequel and we were pleasantly surprised when we saw this game! But we miss the Llamas so maybe us can turn them into lizards for the desert? Also wheres the guy who chases us? Overall great game! (I was talking back there about Altos adventure) thank you Snowman!

Thats right we want to party once we get up to a certain level we could meet the different characters or a princess or anything …. You know in Mario brothers sometimes you get to be with a princess Ha ha ha The characters would say things to us like we really like that octuple backflip you did and the date you did it of course theres privacy issues ha ha Ha… Then They could give you a cool new outfit or a scarf>……………………. We’ve got to be careful or Ill eat up all our time playing it Update; we are almost to the last character for more levels!

This game is so much fun and the way its designed is both calming and thrilling.

Probably the best mobile game we have. But there is a bug we found in zen mode. Zen mode is basically a mode where if you die you hop right back up and continue where you left off. Now the bug, if you wing suit straight into a chasm, you will get stuck there, and wont get reset at the top like normal. Then you have to restart, but we dont know how anyone would accidentally die that way but, who knows?

Amazing scenery. Breathtaking musical score. Exciting gameplay. NO MICROTRANSACTIONS OR ADS. This is the perfect endless runner.

So good! Add emotes like Altos adventure! 5 stars easy!!!

We grew up playing Altos Adventure, so when we heard about the development of its sequel, Altos Odyssey, we were counting down the days until its release! Like its predecessor, Odyssey is incredibly immersive and absolutely stunning in every way. Its extremely easy to play, but offers an ever changing landscape and new challenges to always make the game exciting. As an indie game (and a newer one at that), it does have its flaws and bugs. But the developers are constantly improving the performance. Currently, the game shuts of your background audio as you enter the game (although we’ve heard that the developers are working on this issue). With its catchy music thats never always the same, Im fine with that. However, if you prefer listening to your own media whilst tapping away, we would instead download the critically acclaimed Altos Adventure, which offers that feature. Overall, the stunning art, cute characters, and enticing challenges, combined with the simple, easy gameplay, makes this amazing app worth every penny. As a long time Alto addict, we can definitely say that you will adore this game.

We’ve played this game since our senior high. This is more than just a game. Its more like a place to relax our mind and stay calm and throw all our unhappiness far behind. Especially when playing Zen mode.

Other than some very minor bugs everything else is great. Calming game with great design and style. The moment flows cleanly and there are no ads like other mobile games. Overall very clean game.

This is a great game but it take a really long time to get coins if you had a way too buy coins this game would be awesome. We also think you should add more upgrades. Maybe side quests every now and then would be great. Last you should add skis as a option. Thats all we still think this is a GREAT GAME!!

Would be better if you could play your own music with it. In game music is less than desirable.

We really enjoyed this title and completed all the goals. It really strikes a wonderful balance between relaxing, entertaining, and easy to pick-up which is what you want in a mobile game. The game has a great arc though we found it plateaued a bit after discovering all three biomes. It would have been more exciting if there were more biomes and kept the sense of adventure going. Only complaint is that the game can be difficult to see without your phone brightness way up – especially when it is night in the game or a sandstorm. The changing weather and time in the game are really beautiful, but we would have liked an always day mode that keeps it at noon and sunny in the game so that it is easy to see even if phone brightness is low.

This game is by far the very best paid infinite run game we’ve ever played, definitely worth the money on this one, there are no problems that we’ve run into thus far, and we just feel so nostalgic when playing this game, it reminds us of living with our mom and how we would play this during the nights us and our siblings were home alone while she (my mom) was working. This might be kinda sappy, but this game makes us feel strangely comforted whilst the world burns outside our window and also because we cant live with our mom at the moment because of split parent issues, and we miss her very, very much, but knowing we have a piece of her with us on an everyday item of ours is the best we could wish for. But anyway, we just overall feel relaxed and happy with the look, feel, and sound of the entire game. Also, if you feel like you have problems with this game on your phone, then as long as an iPad is signed into your iCloud account (or something else, maybe iTunes) you can download it for free on that iPad. Trust us we bet itll be a way greater experience. And for the developer(s) of this game, props to you! Great work.

We LOVE this game!! This game is an interesting mix of calm, kind of stressful, and addicting. Thats what makes it so great. Totally recommend!!

The lemurs in this game are very weak. Could you make them faster and maybe add some flying foe to deal with wingsuiters.

We love this game so much! It is so calming and fun. We love all of the characters and all of the balloon jumps. We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this game. The nice thing is that their are no adds! This is the best game we have on our iPad. We have both games on our iPad and play them both everyday! We love this game so much!

Please just add more content Im not going to buy Apple Arcade and this is a good game.

Please bring another one of the altos same gameplay with more stuff and wings and power ups , we need another new game.

Altos Odyssey has been one of our long time favourite mobile games. We like it so much that, following our switch from Android to iOS, we decided to purchase the iOS version of the game to continue playing. And it was equally as good as the Android version, and well worth the money spent. The gameplay is great, the progression system is paced well – not too fast or too slow, but just at the right speed, the graphics are beautiful, and there is no apparent lag or frame drops, even on our (relatively) older phone. And, following a minor issue we had with the game, the developers left a response informing us that it would be fixed as soon as possible. 11/10, and 100% worth the time and money spent on it.

The game is great in every single way the only little thing that we dont like is that 5he wall ride walls are textured with those dots to tell you can ride them but they are very unnecessary because it is pretty obvious when you can and cant wall ride and it really ruins the beautiful simplicity of the game ok not really but it would definitely look better without it.

We have just recently reconnected with this game just a few days ago and as of right now we can confidently say that this is one of the best games of all time. The surreal soundscape and majestic beauty of the game provides a comforting and relaxing mindset while playing. We have seen a lot of reviews saying that this game needs more biomes and as we can agree with this, we feel as though it is already perfect as a minimalist sand boarding game. There are two game modes in Alto’s Odyssey, the main one which has three goals for every level and 60 levels, or Zen Mode which has no goals or coins and is just you, the game, and utter peace. If you crash in Zen Mode, all you have to do is just tap the screen and keep playing from where you left off. Both game modes have a Picture Mode on the pause screen in which you can take a screen shot of the game. We would highly recommend you get this game if you haven’t already.

We’ve played this game for a long time, across many devices, and it always provides us with a serene and beautiful escape from whatever Im currently doing. We love the simplistic design of the landscape and the sweeping music that accompanies you on your journey down the mountain. The quests that the game provides you with always remain challenging, but doable, which keeps you from boredom. In general, we think other game developers should take notes from Altos Odyssey, as this is one of the higher quality games you can get on mobile by far.

Back when we were in our sophomore year of HS we downloaded the first Alto adventure game and we were in LOVE. The graphics were awesome, the colors popped, and overall it was relaxing to play. Im still stuck on a high level after all these years but one day we will beat it. Fast forward to now, finding the second version of Altos adventure which is altos odyssey we are still in love with the game and its beautifully made. 10/10.

But this game deserves one. First of all: Altos Adventure was a great game. We remembered downloading it when we were younger and having an awesome experience playing it. It was free when we were younger (I think) but we had no problem supporting the devs considering we had such fond memories. The game lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We didnt think that a second game was needed, but Im glad we got one. We finally got around to purchasing this game and it takes everything about the previous game and builds upon it. The graphics are phenomenal and the backgrounds are stunning and the soundtrack is just… Out of this world amazing. Like we said we dont normally take the time to write reviews, but this game deserves one. Awesome game.

This is one of our favorite games in just about the world. No adds, beautiful graphics, and such a calming atmosphere that you could fall asleep while playing. Honestly, we have no complaints. If youre considering buying this game, we would definitely recommend it. Super fun and doesnt get old. Its not too fulfilling, pretty good for passing the time. We got it several years ago and still play it almost daily.

This game was DEFINITELY worth our money. The scenery, music, and everything about it is amazing. Im a big fan of Altos Adventure and this game, and its one of our favorites. Whenever we need to release some stress, the zen mode is our go to.

Please make a new one or make new levels for the existing games. We would pay for them.

We love it beautiful graphics and Music.

We like the scenery as well as its really calming and relaxing.

We really love the game but we dont know the difference between this and altos adventure but this game is a 10/10.

Hello, we would like to share our story with the game that we believe is a little bit more unique than most other players. As some of you may know, Altos Odyssey is the sequel to Altos Adventure, which was first published in 2015. We played AA (Altos Adventure), and fell in love with it, however we never purchased it or AO (Altos Odyssey) until recently. This was because we first played the two on a hacked client which allowed us to play for free. Since it was a hacked client, it meant that our data on the game would be wiped whenever the client had to shift to a new site or whatever they did when they risked being exposed. We played AA and AO over and over and over again but never became bored of either, which made us start to think; hey, maybe this game is worth buying. We had never gotten past level 30 on either game because of how often the client had to switch and that frustrated us, to the point where we stopped playing both of them, up until 2022. We decided to buy them on a whim because we had forgotten then remembered AO and had felt quite nostalgic about it. Buying this game and playing for the first time in years was an amazing feeling and we can confidently say we have thoroughly enjoyed every moment, this game is worth the $5 you spend on it, without a doubt. P.S: canyons best biome.

This game is so beautiful and addictive it infects your dreams. An amazing follow-up to the beloved first game. Cant say enough good things.

We love this game. But when will we revive another like maybe waves or space or more sand or another mountain.

So the title says the basics, but Ill list reasons we like the game, as well as certain bugs that we’ve noticed and maybe a few ideas we would like to see added! So Ill start with the stuff we like! We love the music! And we’ve even found myself humming to it occasionally! The music in zen mode is really really nice! Although both are good! We love the day cycle and different weather! The wildlife is either cute or beautiful! (Lemurs and birds of paradise!) we used to use the character Maya, just because we got used to using her. But the higher the character, the better it is! So we’ve started using the character you unlock last, (I wont spoil it for anyone reading.) and we like it a lot! The scenery is so beautiful! We actually have a hobby of taking pictures of anything that looks remotely nice! Thats all the praise we have at the moment but we might add in the future. Now there isnt anything we dislike, but there are a few things that can be annoying. This is a mix between bugs and such. So sometimes we go to take a photo, and it glitches. So we cant see anything. We cant take the picture or anything. So the only thing we can do is return to main menu and start again. We’ve noticed other reviews saying stuff about visual problems, we’ve never noticed these myself but we can understand how it could happen. So for ideas, we only actually have one thing that would be useful. So one of the last levels requires to score 350,000 trick score. We finally managed to do it but it took multiple tries. The point is, we bought many helmets and pickaxes. But you can only use one a round apparently. And we found that kinda annoying because on one round we have literally 1% until we got to finish that quest. But then we crashed for the second time that round and ended up rage quitting for the day. We just think it would be useful to at least be able to use two a round. Or maybe you could buy something from the shop to be able to use two a round. Thanks for reading! We hope any new players found this helpful!

We’ve played this game for about 50+ hours at the time of this review, and our experience with this game has been incredible! Its a smooth ride, with responsive controls and slick gameplay, not to mention breathtakingly beautiful graphics. Its easily worth $15, but you can get it for a fraction of that price. No ads, no microtransactions , this is exactly what every mobile game should be like! In the early game, youll complete a mass of easy quests designed to familiarize you with the game. Upgrades and new characters come often enough to keep things interesting, and all of them bring something new to the table! By max level (level 60) all of your things will be upgraded to the maximum, but theres still plenty to do! The single-use items are fairly priced for the endgame, costing about as much as you should make in a run where you use them; and chasing high-scores is endlessly enjoyable. The visuals are stunning: with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, dynamic environments and weather, and a fantastic color palette, theres nothing to complain about here! The gameplay is fun and intuitive, the type of thing that you can understand in minutes, but need dozens of hours to master! The wingsuit lets you easily build up 30,000+ point combos, and wall-rides and ballon bounces make touching the ground for more than a few seconds a rarity. Almost every death is your fault, and runs end up lasting upwards of 10 minutes once you get the hang of things! The only complaints we have are so small that they’re practically negligible. You crash on rocks if you hit the very end, rather than either bouncing or landing and boosting through. This makes longer runs (15,000+ m) less consistent, as you tend to die when you thought you should have bounced or landed instead. The other thing also has to do with rocks: you crash if you hit them during a balloon or vine grind, even if you hit them from the top. It feels like you should bounce when you glance the top instead of just dying, but these issues are so small that they’re barely noticeable. Overall, this game is exactly as advertised: a fun, relaxing ride through an endless desert, with a beautiful soundtrack, gorgeous visuals, and smooth gameplay. Its one of our most-played games for a reason, but dont just take our word for it: try it out for yourself, we promise you wont be disappointed!

We love this game a lot and can spend a while playing it. Its fun and very entertaining. Its also very relaxing to play when ever your stressed because the music and sound effects make it so very relaxing and satisfying. It has only ever glitched for us a few times. We recommend getting this game tbh.

Just let us listen to our own music. Like isnt your whole thing that its a relaxing game? Then let us choose what we listen to. Its either nothing or weird somewhat nice ambient noises. We really like everything other than that but please, we want us music.

The game runs well for us and we think its worth the dollar we spent. It could use an update, and we’ve been stuck on this one challenge wall ride to backflip over chasm so if you could make that easier that would be great. Keep doing what your doing, we love it.

Lets just say this is a sensational game. As a person that doesnt usually write reviews, this game runs the test of time; it doesnt get old at all. Immersing gameplay, love the upgrades. However this is the reason for the four stars; we feel there should be an option to pay with coins to skip an objective if you simply think its too difficult. Thats it. Thank you for the great game and keep it up.

We know this is strictly opinion but one of the best aspects of altos adventure was the fact that we could play our own music as we played the game. We have a snowboarding playlist from games we played as a kid that vibes perfectly with these games. Not being able to listen to our own music is our only complaint with this game otherwise it would be five stars for ease, escapism and art.

We Absolutely love this game now instead of saying how much we love we are skipping to the problem… Not enough buyables now we dont by the pick axe and ace and we have bought everything we have 46413 coins and nothing to spend them on other than that a awsome game and addictive. Keep up the hard work.

We want to play our own music while playing the game, it stops it from playing.

Incredibly ambitious and beautifully executed design hampered only by a few bugs and anomalies in actual gameplay. Not a reason to avoid the game but a mark against the experience nonetheless.

We love this game! The game crashes when listening to music in our AirPods and playing which also deletes all progress made in that run. Other than that love the game.
