Developer Snowman today announced that its popular endless runner game for iOS, Alto's Adventure, is now available on macOS computers. The developer says that the launch of the game on macOS was timed with the upcoming release of macOS Mojave and the new Mac App Store, which should arrive at around 10:00 a.m. PT later today.

You don't need macOS Mojave to download Alto's Adventure, however, since the game is out on the Mac App Store now for $9.99 [Direct Link]. The game follows Alto as he journeys across various environments on an endless snowboarding adventure, where players have to guide Alto and chain together combos using a one-trick button system.

Alto's Adventure first launched for iOS in February 2015, and was followed up this year with a sequel called Alto's Odyssey. The sequel is still an endless runner, but introduces new features, controls, and a new desert location. Snowman says there's a good chance that Alto's Odyssey will appear on macOS as well.

I find it interesting that most iOS games work on all iOS devices after you purchase them. But Mac versions still carry a premium. Wouldn't it be to Apple's benefit to have all games available on all Apple platforms? How many people will buy the same game twice just to play it on their laptop instead of their tablet?

Endless runners usually scream "brief, small screen" levels of engagement, but this particular game is so beautifully rendered I actually think it makes a lot of sense on bigger screens.

I'm pretty sure I'd rather play this on the Apple TV at half price, but everyone has their reasons.

I think this game is best on ATV. It’s as if it was designed for it. The one button click just feels good but I think iOS apps on macOS will be revolutionary since that is where most of the innovation and excitement is coming from these days. The Mac App Store will cease to be useless apart from buying FCPX and Logic to a lesser extent for the musicians among us.

This seems more like a game you play on a flight or on the toilet. Not sure I'd carve out time to play this on my computer.
