Alto's OdysseyOfficial Waldo Score 9.2/10

9.2out of 10
Official Waldo Review

Alto's Odyssey is absolutely fantastic. This is a prime example of what a sequel to a game should be. The developers of this game have taken the endless adventure we've grown to love from the first Alto game, injected it with steroids and pumped out an even more amazing experience. There is enough fun to give you months of entertainment with three different level experiences, new mechanics (like wall jumping), different modes, and an overall visual and aurally masterpiece. If you thought that Alto's Adventure was a great game, you are going to love what Odyssey has to offer.

Game Description

Just beyond the horizon sits a majestic desert, vast and unexplored.

Join Alto and his friends and set off on an endless sandboarding journey to discover its secrets.

Soar above windswept dunes, traverse thrilling canyons, and explore long-hidden temples in a fantastical place far from home.

Along the way, you’ll grind across vines, bounce atop hot air balloons, ride towering rock walls, and escape mischievous lemurs – all while uncovering the desert’s many mysteries.


Rating Breakdown

This game was given a score of 9.2/10 which is good. Anything above a 5.0 is considered a great game. Below is a breakdown of the elements that were factored into the rating for this game. Even though Waldo's reviews are based on personal opinion, each game's rating follows a strict confidential rubric system for fairness.

User Interface Design (UI)
Just like the game, the UI is a beautiful experience. Stay long enough on the menu and you will witness changes in weather, giving it an a new experience everytime you play.
User Experience Design (UX)
User experience is flawless.
Game Design
Artist Harry Nesbitt did an amazing job to the design of this game. Not only does it play well, but it's a beautiful endless adventure. The game smoothly transitions between three different level experiences while also going through night, day and constant weather changes. The visuals alone in this game are worth the asking price, but being able to navigate this world is an amazing experience.
Learning Curve
Game required no tutorials or instructions to play.
Difficulty Progression
Difficulty progression was smooth yet challenging.
Playtime Longevity
As a sequel to Alto's Adventure, I was worried the game might feel very much the same, giving it a shorter life span, but in fact it had a whole new exciting adventure. It's like being a snow boarder and finding a new mountain to sled down. The addition of the three new worlds and the level quests, make this game something you can play for months.
Sound Design
I have yet to find a better soundtrack in a game then this one. It starts of subtle, but then becomes an experience of its own. It's so perfect I barely have words to describe it.
Fun
All of the mechanics combined with the audio and stunning visuals makes this game an impactful experience that makes you never want to put down this game. This game has only been out for less than a week, but I spent all weekend playing it and had trouble putting it down.
Concept Originality
Uses a concept that has been seen or used before but adds a very unique twist to that concept that makes it original on its own.
Post Production
Post production contains a well written description, screenshots, video and icon design.
