Alto’s Adventure – Remastered debuted on Apple Arcade on Friday. This is an update to a classic over-the-top snowboarding game.

The revamped version created for Apple’s gaming service includes a new character and new goals but the same sports-fantasy fun.

Alto’s Adventure – Remastered offers new snowboarding fun

As Snowman puts it, the game challenges players to “journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness, through sleepy neighbouring villages, ancient woodlands, and long-abandoned ruins in a quest to uncover the Spirit of the Mountain.”

Just don’t get the idea this somehow meditative. It doesn’t settle for ordinary snowboarding. You’ll need to grind rooftops, leap over chasms, rescue runaway llamas and outwit village elders.

But all that is also true for the original version. Alto’s Adventure – Remastered offers more. Snowman says, “This is a new edition of the classic game that will reveal fresh ways to play and surprises when you least expect it. Players will have to stay alert or they may miss the mountain’s most mysterious offerings yet.”

Apple Arcade subscribers will be able to navigate through a series of never-before-seen set pieces, revealing a mysterious and brand-new playable character. And the game offers 20 additional goals, especially designed to be tackled by the new character and their unique tricking abilities.

The Cult of Mac review of the original version called it “both visually amazing and a joy to play. Alto’s Adventure is incredibly fun, surprisingly delightful, and perfectly addictive.”

Play it now on Apple Arcade

Alto’s Adventure – Remastered by Snowman is now on Apple Arcade. There are versions for iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple TV. No matter the platform, an external game controller is an option.

And this isn’t the only game from Snowman in Apple’s gaming service. There’s also Alto’s Odyssey: The Lost City and the puzzle game Where Card Fall. These are just a few of the many classic titles available on the service by a wide variety of developers.

Any or all of these can be enjoyed with a single $4.99-a-month subscription to Apple Arcade. And a family can share a subscription.
