Alto’s Adventure Tips, Cheats and Strategies

By Nadia Oxford |

Alto’s Adventure is an endless snowboarding game from Snowman. In this game, you play as one of several snow boarders (including the titular Alto) on a fast-paced quest to catch some escaped llamas. The path happens to be mostly downhill and packed with hazards like rocks, chasms, and angry elders. Gamezebo’s Alto’s Adventure Tips, Cheats and Strategies will help you catch those fleet-footed ungulates.

  • Save up for the wingsuit – Alto’s Adventure lets you pay coins to add more time to your coin magnet and hover feather power-ups. However, your real goal should be to save up for the wingsuit, which lets you become airborne and perform flips much more easily than normal. The wingsuit is expensive – 7500 coins – and there’s no shortcut to earning it (Alto’s Adventure doesn’t have in-app purchases). But if you keep on playing, you should earn it in a day or so.
  • Don’t pull off flips on shallow hills – It’s difficult to pull off flips on hills with small inclines. Unsurprisingly, small hills is what you tend to see during the first moments of a run in Alto’s Adventure. Be patient and wait for opportunities to flip down steep hills.
  • Level up to unlock new boarders with different skills – As you complete missions and level up, you unlock new boarders with different abilities. These specialties can come in very handy when meeting difficult level goals.
  • Jump just before flying off a ramp – It can be tricky to nail the correct timing for a leap over a chasm. Jump just before flying off a ramp to get that bit of extra height.

  • When it’s dark, let coins be your guide – You shred through darkness and storms as well as fair weather. When visibility gets low, keep an eye on coin trails. They usually form paths up and over hazards like rocks.
  • Focus on the goals at hand – Having trouble with flips? Don’t feel obligated to do a lot of tricks and flips if your level missions don’t call for it. Sometimes it’s best to zero in on your tasks to get them out of the way.
  • Stay low for coins and power-ups – Alto’s Adventure offers myriad opportunities to grind on bunting, which is a great way to avoid obstacles and gain extra height for flips. However, most coins and power-ups are at ground level. Keep that in mind if you’re tasked with collecting a certain power-up.
  • Learn how to bounce off rocks – You can fly high if you bounce off a rock. Rock-bouncing will also save you from wiping out if you land on top of one.

  • You can smash rocks with a burst of speed – Alternatively, you can smash a rock by plowing through it when you’re wrapped in a speed burst (indicated by a blue force field). Speed bursts occur after successfully executing a flip. Boarding down icy hills also causes you to go faster.
  • Jump to avoid pursuing elders – If you leap over a campfire, the elder resting by it will jump on their llama and pursue you. If they catch you – or if you leap on top of them – they’ll topple you. However, elders slow down a bit when you jump, so well-timed hops can keep them off your back. Once you soar over a chasm, you should be done with them for good.
