WARNING: This is a highly addictive mobile and VR game that MUST BE INITIATED BY A PLAYER WITH A VR HEADSET (Oculus Quest, Oculus Quest 2, Oculus Rift or HTC Vive) and played with at least one person who joins the game on a mobile device (iOS 12.4, iPhone 6 and up).
The golden acorns are under attack! It’s up to you and your friends to protect them or steal them - depending if you are playing on a VR headset to take on the role of an extraordinarily protective tree or as one of several crafty yet thieving squirrels on mobile - in the cross-platform party game, Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!, from Resolution Games.
This hilariously fun experience must be initiated by a player with a VR headset (Oculus Quest, Oculus Quest 2, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Windows Mixed Reality) who creates a room. He or she then connects to one to eight frenemies on their phone and/or tablet devices by giving them the assigned room number that they enter into their device when prompted in order to become rebel squirrels that'll do anything to steal the golden acorns using an arsenal of unique abilities.
The game is at its best when played as a couch party game together with a group of friends and is both competitive and cooperative in nature for players across VR and mobile devices. Once in the game, one player in VR takes on the role of a large, ancient tree that tries to knock out the squirrels that are out to steal the nuts by using the controllers to grab and hurl wood chunks, boulders and sticky sap to keep the squirrels at bay. Meanwhile, the band of squirrels (players on mobile) can leverage a myriad of tools and distraction tactics - including the ability to pick up and plant seeds that grow into pumpkin barriers, plant bushes to hide behind, place mushrooms they can use as leaping pads and more - while working together to develop strategies to outsmart the tree in order to scurry around and gather as many acorns as they can.
Meet the band of rebellious squirrels out to steal the golden acorns:
* Zip - quick witted and light-footed; she’s the fastest squirrel and has speed running abilities
* Chunk - the gentle giant with a heart of gold who protects his friends by carrying a shield
* Doug - not the smartest acorn in the bunch, but channels his rage issues to dig tunnels that allow for safe travel underground
* Sim - a crafty little rodent who’s kind of nutty and builds ramps for vertical movement
Just in time for Halloween, the squirrels have discovered a creepy new level, and it’s nuttin’ but spooky fun! Join the gang as they take on the tree in the “Sulky Swamp,” check out the new 1 vs. 1 gameplay allowing just one player on mobile to take on the tree in VR, and download the Haunted Horrors skins for free!
Ratings and Reviews
Could be better
This game is a tone of fun! Can’t go wrong with the classic Capture the Flag. The only issues I have with it so far are
1. When there is sap on the ground I think at least one squirrel should be able to run through it. I suggest when Zip activates his speed it should allow him to run through the sap.
2. I don’t know how this can be fixed, but there are times when I try to use a tunnel made by Doug and I pop out the end only to pop right back in. Sometimes getting stuck in the loop over and over. This is extremely aggravating! Again though, I’m not sure how the developer could fix this, I just thought I’d express my anger.
3. The “joystick” seems a big difficult to use. Could just be me, but I’ve been having a hard time getting my squirrel to go the direction I want it to.
All in all, this game is a load of fun and highly recommend it! But be prepared to also be infuriated by these little things.
Great game only two things
I absolutely love this game, but there is one problem and I have one suggestion. First, I purchased were-zip skin yesterday and now it says I didn’t, second, with the big tree balls, I think they should despair after they are thrown, because there have been many cases when a lingering ball his killed me when I’m coming out of a tunnel or falling off a ramp. I hope this feedback has been helpful! Sorry I forgot some more suggestions.
I know it’s probably hard to decide a new squirrel, but I had an idea, I don’t know what it should look like but I had a power and name idea, his name is camo and he can turn invisible for a bit, of course the tree will still see the acorn if he has it.
Also I don’t have a problem with this since I’m a boy but I feel like you would get more players if you made female squirrels. There seem to be a lot of reports of it not working on phones but it works fine for me and my best friend. Also I would like it if you improved name space because I wanted a biggish name but it cut me off. But overall this is my favorite game and I call my best friend every day so we can play. Thank you for making this game!
Nice game but crashes.
Okay so my friends and I had been anticipating the release of this game for as long as I can remember. Today is the 29th and the app has just been released. My friends and I all got together and we simultaneously opened the app with glee. However, to my extreme misfortune, the app crashed after four seconds of running. I was not dismayed though. For I opened the app a second time only to have it crash again. Similarly, my friend with an iPhone 6 experienced the same result. The only one of us to have the app work was a friend with an iPhone XR. So, in a hideous fit of pure rage, I screamed like a banshee and was unable to play on my phone. I was distraught. I have never been so sad and suicidal in my life. But I got to play on my friends iPhone XR so it was pretty good. 4/5.
