Distract Yourself With These Great Mobile Games on Sale Right Now

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 6th, 2020

There’s a lot going on right now, and I don’t really feel like trying to write some kind of pithy intro for it. All I’ll say is lots of people have been coming together and helping each other in small ways, and I’m choosing to focus on that as I try to stay safe myself.

One of the ways folks are trying to help are by making their games more affordable, or even free, during this time. Check out my top picks below of some great mobile titles that have gone on sale recently:

Alto's Odyssey shows how mobile sequels can be much more than the sum of their parts

Posted by Harry Slater on July 20th, 2018

The very best games mix together an effortless class and a compulsion loop that keeps you playing until your eyes are sore, your fingers are chafed, and you can't remember the last time you saw any sun other than a digital one. And that's why Alto's Odyssey ranks among the very finest experiences you can get on the App Store.

More than that though, the game is a brilliant example of how to do a sequel. It doesn't slavishly adhere to the formula of its predecessor, but it doesn't stray too far from what made Alto's Adventure great either. It's a balancing act of the very best kind. And it's also a whole heap of fun.

Alto's Odyssey Guide - How to Tackle the Tough Tasks

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 22nd, 2018

Alto’s Odyssey is a completely stunning and serene runner, but it can also be a bit tricky. Check out these to try and keep your cool while playing this endless runner:

Don’t focus too much on tasks

The main progression system in Alto’s Odyssey is tasks, which might ask you to travel certain distances or perform certain tricks in a run. While it may be tempting to try and get these tasks done ASAP, sometimes focusing on completing them makes them harder to complete. It’s often easier to accomplish more tasks more often if you just focus on having a really good run instead. On a good run, there are multiple opportunities to complete any given task, which increases your likelihood of getting them done.

There's finally video evidence of Alto's Odyssey, the follow up to the 2015 App Store hit, Alto's Adventure. It looks just as soothing and atmospheric as Alto's last outing, but this time players will be journeying to the desert. Whereas Alto's Adventure featured an endless playground of pine forests and snowy slopes, it seems that we'll be traversing sand dunes this go around. Despite these big, environmental changes, it looks like the beloved llamas will still be playing a role in Odyssey and Alto's iconic wingsuit will be returning.
