Popular endless runner game Alto’s Adventure has officially launched on the Windows Store this week (via Toronto Game Devs). If you often visit the Windows Store’s game section, you may be aware that the game has actually been available for a few weeks. The developer of the game explained yesterday in a blog post that “we quietly launched the game last month, and have been listening to early fan feedback ever since, to tweak and perfect the experience for Windows users.”
Here is the official description of the game:
The official Windows 10 version of Alto’s Adventure by Built By Snowman! Enjoy the multi-award winning game on your Windows device! Join Alto and his friends as they embark on an endless snowboarding odyssey. Journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness, through neighbouring villages, ancient woodlands, and long-abandoned ruins. Along the way you’ll rescue runaway llamas, grind rooftops, leap over terrifying chasms and outwit the mountain elders – all while braving the ever changing elements and passage of time upon the mountain.
The game features cute graphics and is really addictive, and it also integrates with Xbox Live and you can challenge your friends for the best high score, best distance, and best trick combo. However, it’s not clear yet if the developer plans to release the game on Windows 10 Mobile phones in the future, which would make sense as this is a true mobile game that first launched on iOS and Android devices. On a Windows 10 PC, you can still play the game by only using your mouse.
While the iOS version of the game currently costs $3.99, Alto’s Adventure is free on the Windows Store but be aware that the game’s 15 seconds video ads that launch each time you lose can be a bit annoying.
