Is it really used like this? Not only "Alles gut?"?

I think there are lots of answers that could fit this sentence...I tried "Alles im Ordnung?" and it marked me wrong.

"Alles in Ordnung" is actually the better translation; "Ist alles gut?" is usually reserved to situations after an accident or a quarrel when you try to get emotionally in touch with a person in shock.

Would "Geht alles gut" work as well?

Ist 'Alles gute' nicht auch korrekt? Ich glaube das viele Leute das sagen statt 'ist alles gut?'

Sorry, no; "alles Gute" simply means "all the best" (either as the short form of birthday greeting like in "alles Gute zum Geburtstag" or a variety of "alles Gute für dich" as "all thre best for your".
