Avalanche (2012)

Avalanche is a fun action game people can just pickup and play. The player has to shoot the various gems that are falling down from the top of the screen.
The gems are marked with symbols and the player has to match up the symbol of his ship with the symbol on the gems. 

The speed of the game will automatically increase during gameplay. Shoot strategically and get combos of 4 similar gems in a row to decrease speed and gain extra points.

How to play:
Use keyboard or joystick to control your ship. Left and right movement will move your ship through the different columns, while up and down will change the symbol on your ship. Press fire to shoot.
