Don’t Look Behind You –  Avalanche! – Escape!

Is your ideal slope experience a leisurely mogul run punctuated by hot chocolate pit stops or a bite to eat at that charming pizzeria you saw last night? Then read no further, Zoombugs’  Avalanche Escape!   is not for you!

The London based game publisher & developer’s first iOS release promises (and delivers) a high-octane character and skills driven snowboarding game targeting adrenaline junkies with an axe to grind. Players race to outrun an oncoming avalanche – no easy task when you’re dodging snowploughs, falling trees, the canyon wall and humungous cliff drops.  Download it here! 

Catch some serious air pulling off snowboard tricks to rack up those points. Collect golden snow-balls (never eat the yellow snow kids!) to get a boost and purchase upgrades. Snowboard through the wooden cabins to fulfil your objectives or execute your finest turn to avoid them – you choose. Keep your eye on the ball (avalanche) or before you know it you’re an ice covered toasticle and back to the start you go.

Psycho Steve does not do pistes or après-ski. He likes to hang with his cadre of fearless snowboarders: Flying Fanny, Dodgy Dan, Arctic Annie and Bob Slaye. No nursery slopes for these guys, it’s black runs and off-piste all the way. Every character has different skills – play each one in turn and put your abilities to the test.

Whether you want to go for the power ups, show off your skills or pull amazing tricks it’s up to you. Either way  Avalanche Escape!  offers a compelling snowboarding challenge and many hours of game-play. All this for just £0.69 ($0.99).

Avalanche Escape!  doesn’t just stand out from the crowd it jumps and somersaults over it.
