Revival Studios is proud to announce that they started development and publishing for the Commodore PET home computers.
Their first release is a port of their game Avalanche. The game will be the first physical release in years for the aging computer system.

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 game will automatically increase in speed, but by strategically shooting gems you can align up to 5 gems in a row to gain points as well as slowing down the game for prolonged gameplay.

Game Features:
- Available on Cassette Tape and as Free Digital Download
- Works on the all PET computers (except PET-2001)
- Fast, flicker free, arcade gameplay
- Sound support

You can see the game running on a real Commodore PET system at:

The game is available on Cassette tape and as free digital download.

It'd be interesting to see the CBM version ported to other platforms, say, the Sega Genesis. Bitmap fonts are not copyrightable so no problems from whoever runs Commodore now.
