Description

The Alto Collection brings both the critically acclaimed and beloved Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey into one experience for the first time. A whole new group of players will finally be able to see what millions of others have discovered as they explore the ivory snows and the endless desert on the big screen in one collection.

Join mountain shepherd Alto and friends as they set out to rescue their escaped llamas and find the adventure of a lifetime. In this collection, you will journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness and soar above windswept dunes in a fantastical place far from home. Each procedurally-generated run provides new inspiration and a fresh set of challenges that seamlessly blends our unique landscapes together.

Throughout the journey you’ll meet new friends and escape adversaries with clever combinations of expertly timed inputs. As you test your limits, fortune will favour the bold. Each backflip and successfully landed trick grants a temporary speed boost, allowing you to reach new heights and make it further down the mountain. Misjudge the timing of a backflip or the execution of a jump, and you’ll find yourself in a crash landing at the end of your run. As players progress through the terrain, they’ll earn upgrades, harness new abilities, and uncover the many mysteries that each game hold.

An endless journey full of wonder awaits just over the crest of the next summit.

About Team Alto

Team Alto represents the ongoing collaboration between Artist/Developer Harry Nesbitt, supported by his team in the UK, and Toronto based studio Snowman.

Team Alto was formed in 2012 when Snowman co-founders Ryan Cash and Jordan Rosenberg approached Harry to craft a serene 2D endless snowboarding game that would eventually become Alto’s Adventure (2015). Since then, both teams have continued to grow while working on new exciting projects together, including the BAFTA nominated and Apple Design Award winning follow up, Alto’s Odyssey (2018).

About Snowman

Snowman is a small studio at the centre of artful experiences. Whether as a developer or creative partner, their goal has always been the same: to create meaningful experiences that you may sit with for a short time, but that sit with you for a long while.

Founded in 2012 with the release of a reminder app Checkmark, Snowman went on to launch Shifts, Circles and Super Squares, before collaboration with Harry Nesbitt on Alto’s Adventure. In September 2019, Snowman released Where Cards Fall and Skate City exclusively on Apple Arcade. On the horizon is DISTANT; a collaboration with Slingshot and Satchel.
