The sequel to my favorite iOS game came out last week. Alto’s Adventure, which came out in 2015, was a snow-boarding-themed endless runner that has remained the iPhone’s best meditation app for several years.
I’ve been playing the new sequel Alto’s Odyssey since it came out last week, and it builds on the original to deliver an outstanding sequel. It’s sandboarding instead of snowboarding, so the ambiance is freshened, and there are several new gameplay elements including bouncing hot air balloons and canyon wall-grinding. But most of all, there is still an incredible attention to detail with countless little design touches that are, frankly, delightful coupled with another fantastic relaxing soundtrack. It’s awesome.
