Toronto-based game developer Snowman today announced that “Alto’s Odyssey: The Lost City” will be launching on Apple Arcade on Friday, July 16, as one of several new classic games being added to the subscription-based service.
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.
