Acorn Assault is a quirky, tail-bobbing turn-based strategy game. Raise an army, overthrow a tyrant King and save the oppressed squirrels! Do you have what it takes to start a Rodent Revolution? The squirrels of the forest grew poorer and more starved each day that passed thanks to the tyrant King Lois the Umpteenth. It is up to you to raise an army to overthrow the king and set the world right again. Embark on an nutty journey filled with a strange cast of characters through a historically inaccurate retelling of the French Revolution with squirrels. If you are a fan of turn based strategy games and want something different from the status quo, this game is for you. The deceptively simple to learn rules of the game lead to a varied set of strategies that you can employ to defeat your enemy and march on.

Overall, the game is no more than average in any way.

This game does not bring new innovation, or none at all. It does not stand out in any particular section. Its absurd difficulty is an excuse to cover the main failures.

Where some scenes raise a bit of a smirk, most of them fall flat. One character just ripped lines from Monty Python over and over again

In the end, Acorn Assault: Rodent Revolution isn't anything truly special. The basic mechanics don't tax the player as far as strategy goes, and while the match-three mechanic is a nice touch, the inability to correct your infantry and item placement as well as the randomized draw of what you have at your disposal can be an annoyance. Still, the simple mechanics are easy to understand and pretty solid if you can deal with the inherent limitation. For those looking for the simplest possible strategy game that's also easy to understand, give this one a shot. Veterans might want to take a peek, but don't expect to stay with it for very long.
