Gamezebo Posts its Picks for Best Mobile Games of February 2015

Gamezebo has posted its choices for February’s strongest mobile titles. Topping the list is Alto’s Adventure, the serene and gorgeous snowboarding game that’s all about flipping, grinding, and chasing llamas.

Sure the gameplay was familiar, but Alto’s Adventure was as much an environmental experience as it was a game. Day/night cycles, forests, and the sounds of swooshing down the slopes made this one of the most beautiful mobile games we’ve seen in ages.
