WARNING: This is a highly addictive VR game and must be played with at least one other person who joins the game on a mobile device.
The golden acorns are under attack! It’s up to you and your friends to protect them or steal them in this cross-platform party game, Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!, from Resolution Games.
A game that’s at its best when played as a couch party game together with a group of friends, Acron: Attack of the Squirrels! is both competitive and cooperative in nature for players across VR and mobile devices.
In this hilariously fun experience, one player in VR takes on the role of a large, ancient tree that is the sole protector of the golden acorns. Meanwhile, one to eight frenemies can then grab their iOS and Android devices to become rebel squirrels - who can be customized with 12 unique skins! - that'll do anything to steal the golden acorns using an arsenal of unique abilities across seven different maps.
Very fun with one huge flaw. It’s really fun, but the balance is heavily tilted in favor of the tree. The only squirrel that stands much chance is Doug, and the only way to use him effectively is to chain tunnels from the start to the tree, which gets boring when it’s the only viable strategy. I’d suggest buffing all the other squirrels by decreasing the cooldown for Zip’s ability and making the ability itself last longer, making Chunk’s shield take more hits to destroy and increasing Chunk’s movement speed, and making Sim’s ramps take one extra hit to destroy. Also, I absolutely despise that one Halloween swamp map, as does everyone that’s played it with me. The AI squirrels are fairly useless as well and should focus more on just bringing the acorns to the flag. I know most of this review focuses on the flaws of the game but it really is a great, fun idea that just needs some tweaks, primarily increasing the effectiveness of most of the squirrels.
家族で楽しめる これは私の最初のレビューです 正直、このゲームはとても楽しいです。
Family Fun. So this is my first review honestly this game is so much fun my kids love this game as much as I enjoy playing it with them so the tree is a lil op but imo but once the Squirrels learn how to use their Special abilities it can really be fun and addictive my favorite character is sim but chunk and doug are fun too play with aswell wow it's an amazing game that's well made for family fun ❤️
So much fun. It’s not only fun when I play with my kids but also when my kids play with their friends that don’t have a VR headset. Plenty of hours of fun for the cost and the mobile app is free. We need more of these games that combine mobile apps and VR.
Also it’s nice to combine the AI with your group depending on how much challenge you are looking for. Some levels/maps favor the squirrels or the tree more, so it mostly balances out.
Awesome family fun. We have one Oculus and 5 of us, this game was definitely what we wanted. The first time we played we couldn't stop laughing. Who ever wears the oculus is the tree just need players to load the free app and enter the room number and let the hilarious chaos begin. If you want to play by yourself just enter how many bots you want, play with someone else, or a crowd.
Fun with one headset, needs better AI. We have fun with this game with our one headset. My kids, wife, and I take turns being the tree and the others playing on iPads or phones. My one complaint is that the AI squirrels are awful. They just run around randomly and don’t do anything helpful at all. In a lot of cases, they’re more harm than good for the squirrel team and it’s very hard to make the game balanced with any less than 3 actual players. The AI needs to be improved a lot.
Excellent game, with one small flaw. I absolutely love this game. It’s fun to play with family and friends. It super easy to explain as it’s pretty much capture the flag, and the flag is acorns. The only hard thing about the game is it has a fixed perspective as the squirrel. What I mean by this is the perspective is 3rd person and word well as you approach the tree and dodge it’s branch orbs it throws at you. But when you go to turn around and run back to base the perspective stays. So you are running at yourself and still see the tree rather than seeing the back of the map. So, with this detail some people struggle at first but once you play through it a few times it becomes very manageable and a fun game. Like I said, excellent party game, and I highly recommend. I’d give a 4.5 star if I could lol.
Single headset party game. What I love about this game is that it's a party game for seven people we're only one person needs to have an Oculus. Everyone else just plays on their phones in a fairly easy screen-controler layout.
Game is simple but fun, definitely some maps are unfair to the tree and to the squirrels, but a good coordinated attack usually assures the squirrels will win.
Amazing! This is my favorite party game! Not only is UI great for the headset wearer, but it is also entertaining for those playing via their smart phones. I love that the headset wearer is pitted against the phone players to create a healthy and fun competition
Underrated and Underdeveloped. I bought this game with my first Quest and it is such a sleeper buy! This game solves one of VR's biggest problems...bringing everyone into the game with or without a headset. Being a tree can be overwhelming and being a squirrel requires stealth and skill. Everyone who plays this game absolutely loved it. Now for the downside: I bought this game with my FIRST QUEST! I now have a Quest 2 that is already more powerful than last gen while still punching under it's weight class. The game doesn't seem to have changed much since launch aside from a few new maps. No new tree powers, no new game modes, no new squirrels. (A flat screen PC/console port for the mobile app would be really cool too). I would love to see more content and dev support to make this game 5 stars.
This is the best game. This honestly saved my life during all the tough times. This game brought so much hope during desperate times. This game should win game of the year for oculus. This game should go into esports and I will represent America. So in conclusion if you don't buy this game you are missing out on hours of fun.
Awesome party game but…. This game is amazing nd so fun but after 7-8 games of playing the same maps it gets kinda boring. I just think they should make some new content for the game you know. Overall a good game though
Awesome party game. Got this for a friends late night. Super fun. We had a blast but I had some notes for the developers. I really want a way to turn the camera around as a squirrel. It only focuses on the tree. Another thing is setting how long each game lasts. Then a third thing is making the maps more balanced. Some heavily favor the tree and others heavily favored the squirrels. Then the final thing that would be a good addition is maybe some more squirrel types but there is a good variety already. Overall such a fun game with friends and it’s definitely a must have. We played till my headset died (2.5 hour) and had lots of fun.
Awesome! Must have more games like this! First of all.. My whole family loves this game cause we can all log in with our phones and play against the person with the oculus being the tree! There has been so many laughs and is a great game for the whole family to play.. With 4 phones connected to the game you can make this a 5 player game and is a blast to play. Just hope that down the road there are more levels and more games like this one for sure!
Fun but very basic - needs updates. Honestly im a very big fan of this game, i love getting my friends together and working together to defeat the angry tree or absolutely crushing my friends attempts as the tree myself.
With that being said its been over TWO YEARS since yall had an update. did you take your money and move to the maldives? Like we need and update here yall, how about a scoreboard? The ability to have multiple trees via two or more quests, how about more skins and more maps.
The game is good but could be great, please update!
Good game, but.. Honestly really fun game and it’s pretty simple. You are a tree and you try to stop the squirrels from getting the nuts 🤷.
But here is the problem… You HAVE to play locally. There is NO online mode. And that isn’t good for people who bought the game to play but didn’t realize they needed local players, which some people might not have.
I also don’t like how there isn’t voice chat in game. It makes sense since there is no online mode, but would appreciate if they added that in the future.
Other then that, it’s a pretty fun game and recommend it. It’s a good party/family game you can play when you all just wanna have some fun. It has very easy controls, and a very simple task. Don’t let the squirrels get the ACORNS!
That’s all and I hope you found my review helpful!
Can play internationally!! I loved this game, played many times with friends within same place.
Recently I tried the game online by sharing game code only, and it was successful.
If you know the game code, you’ll join the game right away and be able to play it!
This game connects not only the local friends but also friends in distance (opposite side of the earth) so why not loving this game? Plus you can enjoy it with only ONE purchase! No one else needs to buy anything, just download.
Although when bringing the acorns back to the base it’s hard to find the way because of the “view” settings, but still.
I feel so shame why I didn’t know this game any earlier.
Fun Family Game. My wife and I play this game with our 7 year old daughter who is too young to use a VR headset. She loves it! The tree is over powered for only 2 real players as squirrels, no matter how many bot squirrels. When I’m the tree, it’s challenging to not hit the real players. Only hitting the acorns out of their hands or picking them up. As squirrels it’s so much fun to organize strategies on ways to team up against the tree. The wall can distract or protect. Tunnels are great to get in and out safely. Well placed mushrooms and pumpkins make a huge difference. Even more fun and strategy options when friends and family come over to play.
Does this game have a discord server? It would be fun to invite others to play with room codes. Just like players do in this companies other game Demeo
Great game. Not that many games where you can play as a group with only one headset, this game does it amazingly. Easy to learn and a ton of fun playing over and over. Can be a little frustrating from the app at time but still definitely worth buying nonetheless
