Game: Alto’s Odyssey
Alto’s Odyssey is presented by Snowman.
About the game
The gameplay has a desert theme. The game adds features, such as wall-riding mechanics, water mechanics, tornadoes, falling platforms, a new power-up, and balloon bouncing; and mechanics returning from the first installment such as different times of day, different locations within the desert, called “Biomes”, weather, and the wing suit. Like its predecessor, in addition to its original game mode, it also has a Zen mode, in which players can play and fall over as many times as they want and continue. It was added into the game with the suggestion that it could help them relax.
Alto’s Odyssey is available for iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Tips and tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for the smooth gameplay.
- Backflip all the way
Back flipping in Alto’s Odyssey is the easiest and most important trick. It gives you only 10 points but it will help you increase speed, chain your combos, and evade lemurs. This is the most important trick you need to master.
- Buy items from the workshop
Just like Alto’s Adventure, Alto’s Odyssey has a workshop where you can buy items using in-game coins. These coins can be collected while you play the game and there are no in-app purchases with real currency. Start by maxing out the Coin Magnet so you can collect more coins using that item. Then you want to purchase the Wing suit to start flying!
- Wing suit is amazing as ever
Why sand board when you can fly, or at least float? The Wing suit in Alto’s Odyssey lets you do just that, much like the last game. Land lots of tricks to maximize the length of your scarf. Once it starts glowing, your Wing suit will be activated and you’ll see its icon on the left side of the screen. Tap that to activate the Wing suit but do so when you’re in the middle of a trick combo and want to extend it. You can also fly close to the ground to increase your trick score fast.
- Master the Wall Ride
Wall Ride is a new trick added in Alto’s Odyssey. Mastering this can be the difference between a fantastic long run and a quick trip down the nearest chasm. It takes time to get this right but if you do, it can save your skin in the game more than once. First, be sure to build up some speed by landing tricks — this is a rule of thumb that will serve you well in almost all situations in Alto’s Odyssey. Once you reach the base of the wall, tap and hold the screen to start wall riding. Release just before you reach the end to end the Wall Ride with a Wall Jump trick. It sounds simple but takes time to get used to.
