Indie studio Beast Games has launched a playable demo for Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche, sequel to the flash game Avalanche. You can play it right in your browser, just click the “Play the demo” button from the game’s homepage at www.superavalanche.com.

Avalanche 2 is an endless climber with a classic platformer feel and some light roguelike RPG elements in the form of lootable power-ups, coins, treasure chests, shops and boss battles. The objective of the game is simply to hop your little marshmallow hero up an endless series of blocks that drop down from the sky and see how high up you can make it without getting squished or falling into the lava that slowly fills the screen from the bottom. Along the way you will pick up gear that will enhance the marshmallow with new abilities, such as a jetpack, ninja headband, pogo stick, cape, and so on.

The demo is supposedly limited to 30 minutes of game time per day, but every time I’ve returned to the site the timer has reset even though my high scores and overall progress continue to be saved. Naturally, the full version will contain more content and features, but the demo is already proving to be super-duper addictive. So far in 10 attempts the best I’ve been able to do is 404 feet, and I just want to keep on playing to try to top my high score.

Try the demo out for yourself and if you like what the marshmallow platformer has to offer give it a Greenlight vote to help get the game on Steam. Avalanche 2 is scheduled to launch in May. Pre-orders are available now for $9.99, with free keys for Desura and Steam to come with all purchases as those versions are released.
