Alto’s Adventure ready to grind its way onto the Apple TV
The endless snowboarding runner that is Alto’s Adventure was one of the best iOS games of this year, and now it’s coming to the Apple TV:
During early beta testing we’d often take it in turns to stream the game to an older generation Apple TV via Airplay. It was pretty fun to watch someone else, but the slight delay between gestures and the onscreen display made it difficult for one person to both play and watch at the same time.
However, with tvOS we’re finally able to deliver Alto’s Adventure as a truly native TV experience that everyone can enjoy.
I’ve been more focused on the TV streaming part of the new Apple TV than apps and games, but I’m looking forward to seeing what developers—of games, especially—come up with on this new(ish) platform.
