Update July 27, 2018: Alto’s Odyssey is finally out and free to download and play for Android! Then, dive into the dark depths of a spooky tunnel in Deeper Waters!

Alto’s Odyssey

Alto’s Odyssey has finally arrived for Android and it was well worth the wait. The sequel to the wildly popular Alto’s Adventure, Odyssey takes everything you loved about the first one — the shifting landscapes, the gorgeous graphics, and the simple yet addictive gameplay — and layers on more depth and features.

Gone are the snow-capped mountains and runaway llamas. Instead, Odyssey takes us to more tropical locals with Alto swapping his snowboard for a wall-riding sand board. There’s more interaction with the environment here, too, with dust devils tossing Alto high in the air, mystical birds helping you collect out-of-reach coins, and much more to explore as you progress through the game.

There’s a ton of challenges to complete and multiple areas to unlock and explore. As with the previous game, levels are randomly generated so each playthrough is unique — which makes this a great game to play over and over again. I instantly fell in love with this game and you will too!

Best of all, the game is free to play for Android users with in-app purchases available to remove ads and buy upgrades. Alto’s Odyssey is a fantastic game that you won’t want to miss out on!

Deeper Waters

Because I love to highlight really interesting indie titles, I gotta throw out a nod to Deeper Waters. One of the developers from UnBased Studios reached out to me and asked me to check out their new game — so I did.

Apologies for the somewhat phallic icon aside, this is an oddly addictive game that has you dive deep down a watery cave filled with jellyfish. Your goal is to dodge the jellyfish, collect the rising air bubbles, and dive as deep as you can. The lighting effects are the best part — you cast a light as you continue to dive down and you’re light continues to dim until you collect an air bubble.

It’s hard to determine exactly what your character is — it certainly seems to not be from our world — but there are multiple character mods that affect your buoyancy, make you faster, or give you extra lives. It feels reminiscent of Flappy Bird in terms of being a quick game to play with
