Alto's Odyssey By: Snowman Back when Snowman's endless snowboarder, Alto's Adventure released in 2015, I lamented that such gorgeous artwork was being used on a runner, and not something more like an adventure game. It's not that I don't appreciate runners, but they're not my first choice in games. Despite that, I gave Alto a chance and had a great time with it, though I never completed all the levels.

I Wish “Shooty Skies” and “PAC-MAN 256” Were More Like “Crossy Road”

I've never written anything about Hipster Whale's Frogger-like mobile game Crossy Road on my site before, but I have had a lot of thoughts about it. With the release of the recent Land Sliders and Shooty Skies, I decided I need to get some things off my chest about high score chasers.
