Ever retold the French Revolution with a band of merry squirrels in tow? No? Well, now’s your chance!

Acorn Assault: Rodent Revolution is available for download right now on Xbox One. It’s priced at $9.99 and currently limited to the North American region, but we will of course let you know as soon as it drops in on the UK.

With hand drawn artwork, Acorn Assault will see you test a number of strategies, across 25 levels as you head off on a nutty journey with your cast of squirrels. It promises to be a rather inaccurate telling of the French Revolution, but with single player and local multiplayer options available, simple to learn rules and a test of all your abilities, may just be worth checking out.

The Xbox Games Store can sort you out with the adventure, but if you’re unsure whether you want to head off into a revolution, then sit back and hold tight for our review. It’s on its way!

Game Description:

The squirrels of the forest grew poorer and more starved each day that passed thanks to the tyrant King Louis 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. Features:- Battle through an epic journey against five unique bosses each with their own abilities and environments. – Enjoy quirky, hand-made immersive artwork and animations! – Test your strategies and do battle in 25 epic levels. – Take control of your enemies: play as defeated single-player enemies in local multiplayer mode!Story:King Lois the Umpteenth and his queen Marie Antoinutte reigned over the poor and starved squirrels of the forest. The king’s greed knew no bounds and set out to bankrupt his people by taxing their hard earned acorns. With no acorns to any of the peasant’s names they grew angrier and angrier as each day passed. On one cold dark evening, the King had sent his loyal tax man to collect the acorns from Charles DeMontequirrel who had refused to pay the unjust nut tax. As the tax man knocked on Charles’ wooden door it swung wide open. Charles stood before the tax collector visibly upset as he was scolded for not following the king’s unfair decrees. Charles could no longer simply refuse to pay up and wanted only to set things right. He snatched the legal document the collector shoved in his face and tore it to pieces. A call to arms was made and a skirmish set outside of Charles’ house as he began his battle with the tax man and set forth on his rodent revolution upon the king and his men. Do you have what it takes to start a revolution?

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell....probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I'll be in heaven. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
