WARNING: This is a highly addictive mobile and VR game that MUST BE INITIATED BY A PLAYER WITH A VR HEADSET (Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift or HTC Vive) and played with at least two people who join the game on mobile devices.
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 new 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 Rift or HTC Vive) who creates a room. He or she then connects to two to eight frenemies on their iOS and/or Android 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
** If the overprotective tree wasn’t creepy enough for you, the forest just got a whole lot more spooky with the latest update featuring a new level called “Haunting Horrors”. Plus, the squirrels are swankier than ever with all new skin packs!
Jungle Boogie Pack - Let your animal instincts take over with this totally wild skin pack!
Mobster Madness Pack - You’ll feel like the big capo with this waste management business skin pack.
Haunting Horrors Pack - A full moon rises, bats fly overhead and this skin pack rises from the grave.
