It's out! Try the direct link from here, as it didn't appear when i searched for it in the appstore.

First impressions : This game looks magical! I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone, even if only for the art, if you don't like endless runners.

Just one minor suggestion to the devs : i think some rocks are waaaay too sneaky sometimes

I posted this in the upcoming thread, but I doubt anyone will look there now.
Here's my review and a video of the tutorial with some Alto gameplay. I also took of the other characters, but left them out of this video:

Loving this game. Razor sharp, yet stylized graphics (amazing on a 6+), and somehow relaxing for an endless "runner."
