First released in 2018, Alto's Odyssey is an award-winning endless sandboarding game with beautiful procedurally generated graphics, dynamic lighting and weather conditions, and original music. In the Apple Arcade edition of the game, players will embark on a sandboarding journey to find a new biome called The Lost City and unearth the secrets hidden within, with the classic Alto's Odyssey experience preserved.

At the heart of Alto's Odyssey and its 2015 predecessor, Alto's Adventure, is physics-based movement with a one-touch trick system.


A long list of classic games were added to Apple Arcade in April, including "Fruit Ninja" and "Monument Valley," and more classics are coming soon, including "Angry Birds Reloaded" and "Doodle God Universe." Priced at $4.99 per month, Apple Arcade provides access to a catalog of nearly 200 games without ads or in-app purchases across the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, with additional titles added periodically.

Why doesnt Apple acquire old school game catalogs from Capcom or Neogeo or something…their arcade games will attract many people.

Apple Arcade is so weak. They need AAA mobile games. The problem is that there’s no money in it. Companies make more money from IAP. Nintendo even said so.

I love Alto's Odyssey and I look forward to The Lost City. I like Snowman's work and also look forward to the release of its game, Distant.

I'm two months into my three month trial, and so far the only game I've played consistently enough to leave it downloaded is Solitaire+. Apple needs to get it together with this Arcade business.

Alto has been a great series so far with such long playability. Can’t wait for this one.

So are the days of non subscription games over with? I only play a game once in a great while and even then it would be something considered very classic now days. Pac The Man, Maelstrom, Cro-Mag Rally use to always be on my Mac but now none are even compatible. Yes, I know I'm not in todays demographic but are us old guys out of luck when it comes to our classic games.
