The game is now globally accessible, with language support ranging from English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, to both Simplified and Traditional Chinese. A word of caution, though: Acron: Attack of the Squirrels! is a virtual reality game so addictive, it demands at least one more player on a mobile device. The required mobile version is available for free on both iOS and Android platforms.

This exciting multiplayer party game from Resolution Games will test your ability to safeguard golden acorns from crafty squirrels. Will you rise to the challenge or will you feel the pressure? The fate of the golden acorns hangs in the balance, as you either play the role of the tree protecting its treasure, or the mischievous squirrels on a mission to steal it.

Acron: Attack of the Squirrels! shines when played in a group, offering both competitive and cooperative play across VR and mobile platforms. VR players, using Oculus Rift, HTC headsets, Valve Index or Windows Mixed Reality, become the tree, using hand controllers to fend off the squirrels with chunks of wood, boulders, and sticky sap. Mobile players, on the other hand, become the squirrels, using their unique abilities and tools to snatch the golden acorns.

The game’s eight levels immerse players in diverse natural environments, offering a variety of roles to play. Meet the squirrels: Zip, the fleet-footed speedster; Chunk, the protective giant; Doug, the tunnel-digging powerhouse; and Sim, the nutty ramp builder. Each character adds a unique dynamic to this thrilling game.
