Pro Also playable on Apple TV
A purchase of the iOS version of Alto's Adventure also entitles the buyer to a free modified Apple TV-version, optimized for the Apple TV controller and large screens.
Pro Relaxing gameplay that lends itself well to repeat plays
Between the pleasant graphics, soothing music and fun gameplay, the game allows itself to be relaxing yet still remain challenging. You never get a sense that the game is too tough, which is why the player can easily jump back into play no matter how many times they fall off the board.
Con Paid app on iOS, free to play on Android
The monetization of Alto's Adventure is treated quite differently on both ecosystems. On iOS, Alto's Adventure is a premium application with a price tag of $2.99 upfront and no in-app purchases or advertisements. On Android however, the developers have opted to go for a free-to-play route with video ads and a microtransaction for doubling the amount of coins you receive. Depending on your platform and preferences, you might prefer a premium or a free-to-pay app over the other.
Con Standard endless runner mechanics
While Alto's Adventure isn't particularly difficult or challenging to play, the game doesn't offer unique gameplay mechanics but instead uses traditional endless runner mechanics that are present in dozens of other apps. As a result, gameplay in Alto's Adventure might come off as a bit dull.
