Avalanche Mountain – Source Code


avalanche-mountain-game-play-screenshot-1avalanche-mountain-game-play-screenshot-2This source code has done very well for others and continues to have legs.  This is the “baby brother” to the Avalanche Mountain 2 game, but do not discount it just because its a little old.

Some of the best games on iPhones and iPads last for a long time, and with the right theme that can still hold true for this game.

Shortly, I will be adding a reskin we have done for this source code to the page, especially for your viewing pleasure, but until then you can checkout a popular reskin called “A Bike Race of Ninja Temple.”

I love the theme, but think they could have spent a little more time on the name!  Sorry, but its very important in my opinion to have an app name that is both readable and has the keywords you need to optimize your downloads.  The reskin might have got double the results with the proper name.

Check the game out on iTunes.

Interestingly there was even a write up in the very prominent Techcrunch website on the success of the app.  Pretty impressive.

These stats are now out of date, but Avalanche Mountain (iPhone version) and Avalanche Mountain HD (iPad version) have received a combined download total of over 100,000 downloads to date.

It’s success has been due to not only the gameplay, but due to the multiple methods of monetization (Consumable In App Purchases, Non Consumable In App Purchases and Ad Revenue).  All this leads to more cash in your hands and happy players, what’s not to love?

Lets talk about the game features:


  • 2 separate sets of source code (One for  iPhone and one for the iPad) – Targeting two sets of players so more downloads for you.
  • 35 Challenging Levels to conquer (the longer the players play, the more potential revenue for you).
  • Developed in Objective-C and Cocos2D – The most common platform for games on apple devices.
  • Facebook Integration – Social media sharing.
  • Gamecenter Integration – Achievements/leaderboards keep players in the game longer.
  • Nextpeer Multiplayer Integration – One of the hottest things in 2013 is playing against other players.
  • Revmob and Chartboost Ad Networks – The standard for maximum revenue.
  • Documentation on what changes need to be made and where – Not that its difficult to reskin, but this makes it even easier.
  • Image Asset list for easy handoff to a graphic designer – Your artist will love this.
  • And dont forget 10 unique characters in the game, again designed to keep players coming back to the game, again and again.



      As you can see with the screenshots the game looks good in its default skin, and the possibilities are endless here with the variations you can go through with a new theme.
    Bike racing was mentioned previously, what about dinosaurs on skates, planes, or even a “Back to the future” hoverboard?  Now that would be cool!
      These types of games are always popular, because of the ability to get into a game fast, perfect for 2 minute sessions in a bank queue, or longer sessions on the train, etc.  So the bottom line is its a very enticing game for players.
      Apart from the lovely screenshots of the gameplay, I have also shown you some of the monetization options this source code brings to the table.


Source code options:

Like much of the source code you can pick up, they often allow you to buy a single license, or an unlimited license.  Just so we are all clear on definitions, the single license allows you to create one reskin only, and is a good option if you feel you will never want to reskin it again.  The unlimited license, unsurprisingly, gives you the option to do unlimited reskins.

Keep in mind that the unlimited license can be a good way to reduce the overall cost of each reskin, because you spread the one unlimited license cost across more than one game.

It’s also important to realise that you can target completely different demographics with each reskin, meaning you are increasing the total downloads by individual players.  For example you could have a Barbie Campervan theme and a “Back to the future” hoverboard theme, and its likely that most players of one theme would not have downloaded the other one.

The point I am trying to make is, multiple reskins are a great way to maximise your return on investment and build up a larger number of downloads, and saving money with the reduced cost per reskin.

Extra special deal

So there you go.  Brian has made both the single and unlimited  licenses available (you decide what best meets your needs).  I am in the middle of reskinning this game and will have a demo of it available on this page for you to see for yourself.

But I want to go one step further.  How about a discount if you get us to reskin Avalanche Mountain for you?   Thats right, if you buy Avalanche Mountain right off this page (either version) by clicking either of the links below, and then get us to reskin one or more copies of the game for you, I am going to pass on a ten (10%) discount of the price you pay for the source code, right off the top of your reskin costs. While it won’t pay your mortgage off,  it’s better for that cash to be in your pocket, right?

Our costs are already extremely competitive, especially when you compare the unique services we can provide with app store optimization, and amazing graphics which you will not find elsewhere.   Obviously I cannot extend this indefinitely, so if you are interested in this, please get in contact with me quickly.

This genuinely is only going to be made available for a limited time.

Feel free to “keep me honest” by asking for a quote up front, when I say genuine discount I mean it!

Avalanche Mountain Single License

This gives you the license to reskin the source code a single time.  To get started just click the Buy button.  Remember we can help with reskins if you wish, and be sure to take advantage of the discount I mentioned above.  Please also note the terms and conditions further down the page relating to the purchase of this license.

Sorry, I No Longer Have This Available/Recommended Any More.

Avalanche Mountain Unlimited License

This is the unlimited license, allowing you to reskin it any number of times.  To get started just click the Buy button.  Remember we can help with reskins if you wish, and be sure to take advantage of the discount I mentioned above.  Please also note the terms and conditions further down the page relating to the purchase of this license.

Sorry, I No Longer Have This Available/Recommended Any More.

For those of you who want to take part in Reskin frenzys!

Brian has put together a package of this game, and two others.  Now you can go crazy and reskin three games, an unlimited number of times.  And at a discounted price.

The “boring” but important legal stuff you need to read AKA Terms and Conditions.

Avalanche Mountain Apps and Brian Appell (the creators of this source code) have a list of requirements for this game, that you agree to when purchasing.

* All graphics must be changed (pretty basic, a reskin is a new face, can’t do that without changing the graphics).

* The name of the app must be changed (a no brainer, and part of the reskin process).

* All music and sounds must be changed (again a no brainer).

* You may NOT resell the source code (note that I have Brian’s express permission to offer this source on this page, and when you do purchase you are getting the “official” version of this code, and all support from Brian).

* If you purchase one license, you can only create one reskin. Additional reskins require additional licenses.   I suggest you go for the unlimited license so this is not an issue.

* You may NOT license this source code for the sole purpose of reskinning and reselling the app (basically the idea here is to reskin it and upload to the app store and make money from the various monetization).

* If at some point you decide to sell your app then you must specify you are transferring the license and that the buyer does NOT own the source code.  In other words, the buyers gets the samee deal you did.

* When you purchase an “Unlimited License” you can create as many reskins with that source code under your own developer account. You however may not transfer that multiple license to someone else, or share that multiple license with someone else unless you have written approval from Brian Appell from Avalanche Mountain apps (basically you are buying the source code to use yourself, enough said).

* You may modify the source code as you wish (this is good to know down the track if you decide you want to go crazy and add new features, etc).

Very Important – When purchasing a license or multiple license, you do NOT own the source code. Brian Appell form Avalanche Mountain apps is licensing it to you for reskin purposes only. He and his company remain the owner of the source code (licensing is standard with most software).
