Alto's Odyssey 'Alto's Adventure' sequel 'Alto's Odyssey' launches on iOS on February 22

Game modes that were added through updates to Alto's Adventure, including Zen Mode and Photo Mode, are coming to the game as well.

Toronto-based Built by Snowman is set to launch the sequel to their epic hit Alto's Adventure, as Alto's Odyssey is set to debut on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV on February 22, 2018.

Alto's Adventure is a bit special. Snowman hasn't yet said if the game will come to other platforms although if history is any indicator, it'll probably eventually find its way to Android devices.

In designing Alto's Odyssey, the team at Snowman approached it as more of a companion to the original rather than a true sequel.

Players will be sandboarding through desert dunes, rocky canyons, and a city dotted with temples, elements from one area blending into the next as progress is made. "As a team that cares deeply about crafting artful experiences that bring people joy, it's one of the worst things we can imagine to consider that clones of our game might confuse players and - even if just in some small part - taint their view of the series or the Alto name".

New ambient lighting effects, including sandstorms, solar accents, rain and more add up to a lot of variety of experience in terms of what you're looking at, too, which helps Odyssey feel different to its predecessor. United Kingdom artist, designer and developer Harry Nesbitt, who worked with Snowman on Adventure, is back again and really stretching his wings to build on the visual style of the original. It had to be different enough as to not turn off existing fans while simultaneously not scaring off newcomers with overly complex mechanics.
