Noodlecake Studios has just published the Android version of Alto’s Odyssey on the Google Play Store. Unlike the original $4.99 iOS release, the Android port is free to play with optional in-app purchases. Alto’s Odyssey is the sequel to Alto’s Adventure, a hit mobile game that reached 36 million downloads on Android and helped expand the reach of the indie studio beyond its success within Apple’s ecosystem.
Alto’s Odyssey is a beautifully designed, simple-yet-challenging snowboarding (sandboarding?) game that takes the player on a serene trip through gorgeous desert scenery. There’s also a “zen” mode, which strips the game’s user interface and notifications away so you can simply enjoy the soundtrack and art style. It’s a terrific sequel to what was already a game easily worth the download.
