Alto's Adventure has excellent graphics (pictures)

This endless runner has you speeding down a mountain, but what you see on the way is as much of the experience as the gameplay.

Alto's Adventure

Alto's Adventure is not a new gaming concept or the best in its genre, but the graphics as you speed down the mountain are in a league of their own.

Changing environments (1 of 3)

There are plenty of opportunities for tricks as you fly down the mountain.

With this slide and the two that follow, notice how the environment changes as you play.

As the day wears on, the sun goes down and your treated to a sunset.

Don't get too distracted though, the next rock that will end your game is right around the corner.

At night you're snowboarding by moonlight, but you have to stay focused even when it's difficult to see.

At the end of your run, you'll get a rundown of the distance you traveled and several other stats.

The mountain elder got me

When a mountain elder is in hot pursuit, he will not rest until he takes you out. Your only escape is to jump over a chasm he can't cross.

I didn't make it.

Nighttime on the mountain

There's not too much to this shot, but it's so cool-looking I had to include it.
