Alto’s Adventure

This past week, as Dallas was intermittently “covered” in ice and snow, the hospital was intermittently quiet enough to download and play Alto’s Adventure a bit a lot on my iPhone, a new snowboarding-theme one-touch endless runner with a beautiful, relaxing visual and musical design. Come for the backflips and wingsuit, stay for watching the sunrise over a well-crafted winter mountainscape.

Though decidedly a more zen game, I’ve been reminded of playing its spiritual prequels in my medical past, like Tiny Wings, which helped make a neurology sub-I tolerable during fourth year, and when the frenetic Canabalt helped me ignore the basic sciences.
