Android title screen.

Alto's Adventure is an endless action snowboarding game created by Snowman and released for iOS on 2015-02-19 and then ported to several other mobile devices. You play a South American snow boarder at the top of a mountain who must capture llamas that have escaped from their pen while you were sleeping before the elders find out. As you snowboard down the incline, you can perform tricks for speed boosts, collect coins to purchase items to make you faster, and avoid hazards and the elders who are trying to punish you.

I found this game online in 2016 while looking for a new free game to play on my tablet and enjoyed the attractive appearance.

Status

I've unlocked all of the snowboarders and reached level 52.
