Alto’s Adventure: Walkthrough, Strategy Guide, Tips & Tricks

Alto’s Adventure
By: Snowman


This will be a walkthrough guide with hints, tips and tricks for the iOS snowboarding endless runner, Alto’s Adventure. It’s a work in progress, so please bear with me. Feel free to ask for help in the comments section or offer your own tips.

You can also see some gameplay footage here.

You can see my review of the game here.   

Here’s a list of goals for each level.

Force Field (Sonic Boom):


When you pick up speed from doing tricks or going over ice, you’ll temporarily have a little force field in front of you. This allows you to smash through rocks and campfires. But be careful, because sometimes it disappears right before you hit the rock! Some characters like Izel and Tupa also shoot sparks behind them when they pick up speed! You’ll want to do as many flips and tricks as possible, so you can pick up more speed as you approach chasms. It might seem more difficult to pull off backflips with Alto, but once you unlock Maya, you can do them a lot easier. Try to do a backflip whenever possible!



The magnets are red power-ups that will give you the ability to attract coins for a brief period of time. Alto’s scarf will glow yellow and he’ll pulsate while the magnet is active. You can extend the time by upgrading the power-up in the Workshop.


Hover Board:

If you go through a blue feather, that’s the hover power-up. It will allow you to hover a bit a above ground for a brief period of time. Alto’s scarf will also glow blue. You can extend the time by upgrading the power-up in the Workshop. The benefit of hovering is that you glide right over rocks, campfires, and even some chasms. You can even land on your head and you’ll bounce right back up. The hover board is also great for getting proximity backflips without the risk of injury. But you also might glide over coins and other power-ups. So there’s a bit of a trade-off.


Chasm Jump:

There are many types of chasm jumps, some easier than others. To get across the really tough ones, you’ll need to have both speed and timing for your jump/backflip so you have enough time to turn and land safely. Try to pick up speed beforehand by pulling off tricks and combos. If you have a ramp to jump off, you want to jump around the middle of the ramp, not the end.

Wing Suit:

To buy the wing suit, go to Home (main menu), then tap on Workshop in the upper right-hand corner. You need 7,500 coins to purchase the suit.



To use the wing suit, you need to perform lots of tricks and stunts consecutively to make your scarf grow. When it gets really long, it will turn white and a little angel-esque icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Tap that icon and you can fly around! You have to stay in the air for it to remain activated. If you land, it will deactivate. You can still use it until the meter runs out and it disappears. To control it, you just press down anywhere to glide. The longer you press the more you’ll turn upwards, eventually doing loop-de-loops! You can then deactivate the boost by pressing the icon before it runs out, and build it back up again.



You can see the wing suit in action here:


The Elder can be found sleeping near a fire. You need to jump over him, but then he will start chasing you. He will continue chasing you until he either catches you or you jump over a chasm. He cannot follow you over a chasm, so that’s the only way to lose him. He moves fast, so the best way to pick up speed to outrun him is by doing tricks to get speed boosts.

    I’m on level 60 which I believe is the final level… I’ve caught 3 lamas on a wing suit flight, scored a 15,000 point trick combo but I can’t for the life of me score 250,000 points in one run, I can get to 100,000 but that’s it… Have they made it so the last challenge is inpossible

    1. Krals

      I’m stuck here too… I know I can do it because I’ve felt this way many times in this game and always eventually pulled it off but right now it feels daunting…

  2. Steve

    Hi there. I’m stuck on level 32 where the goal requires you to “Smash 3 rocks with an ice boost in one run”.
    I’ve smashed on many occasions more than three, but am I correct in assuming you must do the smashing in one hit rather than strung out at different points in a run? Thanks

    1. AppUnwrapper Post author

      I think it’s worded differently if they have to be smashed at once. But check the pause screen after you *think* you smashed one or two and see if it says a percentage is done.

      Bonjour – Flip à proximité veut dire un flip ou votre tête est vraiment proche à la neige. Essayer de faire ça à la commence de la jeu- c’est bcp plus facile.

    I’m done. I’ve spent 5 weeks trying to get 35,000 trick points, and it just won’t happen. I get soooo close, then BOOM! I always always plop down a chasm. It’s like my little skateboarder deliberately takes a nosedive no matter what I do. What a bummer for me. I really loved playing, but it’s toooooo frustrating! Ok, thanks for listening (or reading)…

    1. Jeff

      Me too. I assume that each part (flip, wing suit, grind) is successful when it appears in the list of moves on the right, but I don’t complete the goal even when I backflip then activate the wing suit then land on a grind, all without landing on the ground. What am I doing wrong?

  4. Alan Aurmont

    Hello. I’m stuck on level 30. What does “Land a 3,500 point combo” mean? Is that a number of coins? Where are the points? Thanks.

  5. Bob

    I’m currently stuck on level 55. The challenge double blackflip to wingsuit to grind has me stuck–I’ve clearly done it several times but the game is not giving it to me. What am I missing?

  6. Agame

    I’m on level 60, and have achieved two of the three challenges, but the third, “score 250,000 trick points in one run”, I’ve done four times and it’s not registering… Why?
    I haven’t fallen into a chasm or used the helmet in any of those runs, but every time I score 250,000 or more it won’t let me advance

    1. Jon

      Level 60 Is The Last Level, You Aren’t Able To Commple All 3 Unless All 3 Are Done In A Single Run And None Have Been Completed Before

    2. ampersandee

      This was written months ago, so you’ve no doubt figured out, it’s 250,000 *trick* points, not just total points. Still trying to achieve this myself.

    Hey I Am Stuck At “Smash Two Rocks With One Boost” I’ve Slid On 2 Ice Patches And Done It But I Didn’t
    Get The Achievement, What Does It Mean By Boost?

  8. Sophia

    Hi, I’m stuck on the level where u have to reach max boost with ize (level 31). But I have no idea how to do that, do u just keep doing flips? Anybody?

    1. Vvv

      Combos are the best way. You need to get his scarf all the way out. Single flips rarely get your ever shrinking scarf full…(hint:: notice it shrinks over time. You have to keep doing combos to keep it long. The more the combo multiplier, the longer your scarf will grow. You can also tell because that’s when the wingsuit will activate. Before you get Tupa, maya I found to be the easiest to get to full charge because of all the extra flips you can do while grinding)

  9. Liv

    For some reason I can’t jump. All the other actions work, pause etc but they keep on running into that first rock!

    1. Vvv

      Do you have it on Android? Does that to me sometimes too…I just furiously tap on the screen with both hands and it bizarrely fixes it…

  10. Jeff carman

    Can’t get the app to register that I broke three rocks with an ice boost. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong? Does it have to be three rocks with a single ice boost? Level 32

    1. Vvv

      Doesn’t technically have to be an iceboost. Any old boost will do. Trick is that it has to be the *same* boost (I.E. you can’t let the shield wear out between rock smashes). Paz is probably the easiest to do off a n iceboost since his lasts a bit longer. Also sometimes you’ll get lucky and run into another boost while you’re still boosting which still counts as the same one as long as the first shield didn’t totally wear out…

      Hope that helps!

  11. mr.sparkles

    re leevl 32 – the ice patches that give you a boost, also give you a shield. You gotta smash rocks right after the ice boost

  12. Mjc

    Does anyone have any tips on how to “catch 3 llamas in an unbroken wing suit flight?” for level 60?

    Then on to the infamous 250,000 trick points challenge!

    1. Vvv

      This took me a while. I think the best strategy is to keep a charged wingsuit and wait for a green llama horn. Then activate the wingsuit after hitting the horn and swoop in and catch the pack. Also flying a bit slower helps (do a loop if you need to slow down before the pack) worked for me but I’m definitely stuck on 250k total trick points. Sad thing is that I did it before! But not when it mattered :/

  13. Matt

    Using a Kindle Fire, I have amassed a bunch of helmets, but I still keep crashing. How do you put the helmet on after purchasing it?

  14. Patience Pontious

    I am on level 20 and stuck on the triple back-flips. I’ve done a few, but not in thee same run and therefore am having a hard time moving on. Are there any tricks to doing triple back-flips? Do yu have to have speed before you can do them? I can use any and all help concerning this issue. Thanks and Happy Holidays.
