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

What is a Proximity Backflip?

You need to do a backflip where your head gets very close to the ground. You can see a short video of it here:

You can also do it very easily with a hover board:

Kiss the Rail:

You need to come off a jump/flip and hit just the last bit of a bunting:


Here it is in action:

Here’s a list of goals for each level.

Here’s a breakdown of points, thanks to rbates:

    “Grinding is key to scoring, so grind whenever possible. If the grind is flat through a tower, don’t jump so you can get the Grind Bonus.

    If the grind peaks at a tower, do a backflip to build up the multiplier. While doing this, keep an eye on the next tower and if it is an arch, switch to the wing suit while still in the air and drop down below the grind to Thread the Needle through the arch then backflip back onto the grind. End it with a Kiss the Rail for some really nice points. I got a 19k combo doing this.

    If there are no grinds around, try to do a Proximity Backflip over a steep cliff and then switch to the wing suit for a second to fling yourself up then do a double back flip and repeat to build up the combo.

    It is a good idea to throw in a few high point stunts and multiply that with a lot of quick stunts. They both work together this way and you won’t score much doing one without the other.”

      How do I perform a proximity wingsuit fly? It is one of the goals on level 35 to do this for 50 m and I cannot accomplish it.


      1. Wade

        You have to fly in the wing suit for 50m just above the snow. If done just right the snow underneath you will show signs of disturbance, if too low you will automatically land on ground and too high you won’t acheive either.

      2. Jim

        I want to clear this up here and now!
        This very vivid, detailed description of achieving the goal of Proximity Wingsuit is NOT ACCURATE!! None of this ‘fly low so you disturb the snow underneath you’ or ‘I did mine on a steep hill’ is even remotely necessary!!

        What is required is this: fly as low as you can (without crashing) and do it when you’re near the Elders! THAT IS IT! PERIOD! My backup is Ryan. Director of Alto’s Adventure. If you were going to choose a person to advise you on how to achieve a goal, would you listen to the Director of Alto’s Adventure?!

        Be aware; it usually takes AN ABSOLUTE MINIMUM of six proximity attempts before achieving the goal! If you can’t fly well? You will by the time you achieve this goal!! Keep trying!!
        Also – Altos has another update coming!! It should be released within FIVE DAYS!!

        1. Sam

          You don’t need to “fly as low as you can without crashing”, you only need to fly low enough to disturb the snow. My source is having done the mission, and also the 100m version of it.

    2. Alex

      i Amsterdam at level 11 but still with the alto charmanter. Cant get further this way.
      Can i somehoow change into Maya?

      1. Wade

        Tap on home and then switch characters by tapping the figure button in the middle of screen and then pick other character.

    3. Warto

      I’m having trouble with the level 35 accomplishment, “Proximity wing suit fly for 50m in a row.”
      What do I need to fly in proximity to in order to earn this accomplishment?
      I actually find the wingsuit to be quite unwieldy and frustrating to conduct.
      Any tips?

      – Warto

      1. Wade

        I explain in my comment above how to do the wing suit proximity for 50m. I did it with Maya. The easiest spot to do it is on a steep downhill. With the wing suit fully charged start down a steep slope (don’t jump off) simply ride over the edge of the steep downhill and hit the wing suit button and then glide just above the ground. It’s not a long distance but it must be just the right height above the ground to make the snow fly up underneath you. Also if you have to, give the screen a light short tap to keep from getting to close to the ground. Hope that helps.

    4. Kristian

      I cant make The tripple backflip how to do that

      1. Add

        Take maya or tupa if unlocked.
        Sure Spot for triple backflip is , when there is ramp just at beginning of downhill.

        Another way is by luck. Double backflip to rock bounce to backflip.

    5. James Riot

      Hi, I’m having problems with the task: ‘do a back flip over a sleeping Elder’
      I’ve done it like 10 times but the game doesn’t appeal to it :/
      Is there something special I need to do?

      Apprichiate the help
      Regards James

      1. Buzz

        I just did this one 5 minutes ago. I was having the same problem. I think the issue was that I was going too fast. I had to approach the elder at a way slower speed and clear his entire tepee with the flip. Hope that helps!

        1. James Riot

          Hey Buzz
          I just did it the way you said it might work
          And it did
          So thanks a lot mate

      Hi, i stuck at level 29.
      ΓÇóCatch 6 llamas in a single village

      what it mean by single village?

      1. AppUnwrapper

        The villages are the areas with houses. It’s hard to tell exactly where one begins and ends. Just pick up llamas whenever possible and you should get it eventually.

        1. Freedom

          thank you for the information

    7. HelpPlease

      Hey I’m stuck on lvl 25. I don’t know what it means to Do a backflip on a grind twice in one run. Does anyone else know!? Please help. I’m debating on deleting. I’ve been on this lvl forever.

      1. Rafael

        This is very easy and simple. You may do two backflip when you are over the flags (grinding). With Maya this is very simple. All the time over flags you will have a oportunity when get across the masts

    8. Stefan

      I’m stuck at Level 19, I have played hundreds of games and never manage to pull off 3x ramp onto grind in one run. They just don’t appear that often. Usually, I outrun an elder before I get the chance for a 3rd ramp onto grind, and die before even seeing one. I played so many games on level 19 that I managed to buy the wing suit and all but one magnet and feather power ups… Halp!?!

      1. AppUnwrapper

        I didn’t have a lot of trouble with that one, but a lot of other people did, so they’re adding more of them in the upcoming update.

    9. Michael

      Level 19 extremely frustrating, maximum 2 wooden ramps that lead to flag line or roof — 3 required. 3rd day in this level. Ready to delete the game.

    10. Nate

      Thanks for all the info on your site!

      I was wondering how to “reach max boost speed” with Izel. Apparently I don’t understand what this means because I never seem to reach this goal

      1. AppUnwrapper

        For me, I got it right before he would have turned white and activated the wingsuit. But since my game is bugged, the wingsuit didn’t charge up.

        1. Nick

          This wasn’t the case with me. In fact I’ve been had the wingsuit charged and even used with Izel and still this goal eludes me. It’s the only goal left until I need to achieve for the next level.

          Anyone else have this issue and have found a way to solve it?

          1. Philippe

            For me, i just dis it by activating the white wingsuit. Once Izel fly with the WingSuit, the goal was reach.

            1. Stewart

              Same issue with me- it’s extremely frustrating. I’ve had a full white scarf and even flown with Izel, but I still haven’t been awarded the goal. Anyone please advise!? Thanks a lot.

    11. V

      Stuck on level 39. Fly through arch way. Where is there an arch way?

      1. AppUnwrapper

        I believe it’s the same building that you can grind the rooftop, but you need to go through it instead.

    12. Pat

      I purchased the wingsuit pretty early on but now it doesnt work. I use Maya primarily so that I can do a lot of flips and make the scarf get really long. It’ll flash white once it hits its maximum length but there is no icon for the wingsuit. Is my game corrupt or something? I don’t know what to do.

      1. AppUnwrapper

        That was an issue I had before the update. If you updated and are having that problem, I suggesting contacting the developer.

    13. Maf

      stuck on level 29… Have got over 10,000 dozens of times but no joy. Rebooted app still no joy..tweeted game designer said joy still!! FRUSTRATING!

      1. Rick

        I was stuck on this one as wellΓÇöthe 10,000 points this goal refers to are points accumulated by tricks only, not distance, llamas, coins, etc. these are the points that are accumulated throughout your run just below the distance counter in the upper-right corner of the screen. Cheers!

    14. Axellvak

      Stuck at lvl 56 “Roof Grind Between 2 Bunting Grinds”
      I tried everything and i think this is a bug.. someone has passed this?

      1. AppUnwrapper

        That sounds like something very very specific to your environment. Are you saying you’ve done it and it didn’t register, or the opportunity just hasn’t come up? I’m pretty sure I’ve done that before (but I’m not up to that goal yet).

      2. Corvin

        jump on a bunting grind , then a roof grind and then on a bunting grind. i used a wingsuit . wasn’t very hard

      3. Mark

        I did .. easy with wingsuit

    15. Valkiard

      Level 57 “wingsuit in-between 3 separate grinds” what??? Anybody know what that mean?

      1. M

        Grind and then activate your wingsuit until you land on another grind then do it again.

    16. James

      Stuck on Level 48 – “Perform a wingsuit loop before flying through an archway.” I can’t build enough speed to get the wingsuit before the first archway appears. Any ideas on this one?

      1. Eric

        I am also stuck there. I am CERTAIN I achieved it, a full loop BEFORE the archway, and then even flew through the entire subsequent archway… but it didn’t acknowledge it… If anyone has tips, it’d be much appreciated.

      2. RicketyCricket

        I dont know if you have figured it out by now, but just in case you or anyone else is still wondering:

        I was stuck on this forever too. I couldn’t get enough speed to activate the wingsuit before the first archway came up, and I couldn’t figure out how this was even possible. But, it turns out its all about the way you read it. Instead of “do a wingsuit loop before you go under the first archway”, you need to read it as “do a wingsuit loop and then immediately afterwards go under an archway”. It doesn’t have to be the first one – it can be any one. You just have to do a wingsuit loop right before flying through an archway.
        Its very poor wording, but once I reread it for the millionth time, I thought to try this, and it worked.

    17. Jeroen

      Hey, i saw this website and thought it might be able to help.
      Im stuck at 1 assignemt at level 31. “Reach max boost speed with Izel” i keep trying but when i think i go fast as possible i still dont get the assignment completed. How did you do this? Is this just a bug? Or am i doing something wrong?

      1. AppUnwrapper

        You need get to the the point that your scarf turns white (ready for the wingsuit).

        1. Jeroen

          And what if i did and nothing happends?

          1. AppUnwrapper

            Might be a bug. If so, you should contact the developer.

      2. Lord Leopard

        I am stuck at level 31 unable to complete the same challenge. Reached “white scarf” multiple times, the wing suit icon appears, and regardless of it being used or not, the task does not get marked as completed. Could it be that if you buy the wing suit before achieving that challenge, it becomes impossible to complete?

        1. Blue

          I have the same issue very frustrating

    18. Thomino

      LVL 42 spook 20 birds while grinding. Any advices? After 20 000 meters i did like 25%


      1. 0ct0ber

        I figured this out. As you might first assume (I assumed this), Filipe would most likely be the best to use for this. However I recently realized that Paz has a stronger gravitational acceleration.

        What this means in plain English: Paz falls down faster.

        How this is helpful: If you use Paz, you can stay on the grind the longest without being flung off, being able to spook more birds.

        Oh and they reduced this to 20 birds in a recent update

    19. Flammi

      stuck on Level 36 backflip to wingsuit? How? Help please

    20. Mathew

      Stuck on level 32 wing suit for 200m what does that mean I can have the wing suit for the whole run

      1. Elin

        By “wing suit 200m” what they mean is that the wingsuit has to be actually on, not just that you have the white scarf. Once you charge it, tap the wingsuit icon with your finger and you’ll change to it and be flying. Every time you tap, it gives you a little upward motion. To fly flat and straight, many small taps. To loop, tap and hold.

    24. Red_Man

      Is there a max level? I have passed level 51 and unlocked everything. Is there more?

      1. AppUnwrapper

        The last level is 60, but there are no more characters to unlock after Tupa.

      2. Corvin

        What player do you choose for level 50 for 75.000 points?

        1. Mjc

          Maya all the way until you beat level 50 (Unless a specific character is specified explicitly in the goal). Her ability to backflip makes it easy to outrun elders, score trick points, and just more fun to play with.

          Once you beat level 50 and unlock Tupa, then it’s Tupa all the way.

          Good luck with 50, I am working on 60.

    25. Rbiggs

      I’m at level 35, but still nothing new in the Workshop. What’s up, Izel??

      Bonjour, questce qu un septuble combo. Merci

    28. Ashleigh

      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. Cindy

        I’ve personally achieved 307,000 in one run back on level 45. Currently on level 55.

        1. Cindy

          I have officially finished all levels. Since completion, my highest trick score is 673,000. It can be done!

    29. 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

        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.

        1. mr.sparkles

          seen my commend. You gotta smash rocks during the icy ground acceleration.

      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. Ed

        you need to take advantage of the multiplier it will take about to pass about 4 elders good luck

    32. Corvin

      Hi. i am stuck at level 46 : backflip to wingsuit to grind . Please help me.

      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?

        1. Corvin

          Make a backflip , then activate the wingsuit ( in the air ) and fly and arrive on a grind

    33. Blair

        Me too! Can someone please help? How can it be done?

    36. 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?

    37. 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?

    39. 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)

    40. 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…

    41. 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!

    42. 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

    43. 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 :/

    44. Hirad

      How can I reach max boost speed with izle?

    45. 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?

    46. 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.
