Avoid obstacles, smash foes, evade dragons. You'll never know where this adventure will take you... because it doesn't make any damn sense. In Squirrel Game, you can watch the wackyness unfold in Story Mode, or compete for high scores in Distance Mode. Test your skills by collecting a handful of tricky medals.

Instructions are in-game, and will appear automatically before playing your first round.

Didn't give the right appeal

I have to say I love distance games, and with this great mix of stupidity in it, it COULD have been great. This however didn't really give me the feel I honestly craved from this game.


+ I liked the story, because it is random, and unseen.

+ Collecting acorns to use something that is sometimes really needed gave me a challenge, allowed me to play out a level more then once so I could dazzle myself by knowing where these things are. Which gave me a good feeling.

+ The change in levels quickly felt like I finished something, and made me feel proud. It made me feel great.

Now, for the CONS:

- The acorns were sort of, EVERYWHERE it felt like they just handed me the win.

- The plant thing in the second bracket made me feel cheated, that and some of the level development where things would be seemed just lazy, and sometimes really cheap.

- Sometimes the squirrel would miss a platform for no odd reason, which really isn't great to have when you are looking at everything, trying to dodge everything. Then you just die because you didn't land PERFECTLY in the middle of it. This was a huge problem for me, and it is my biggest complaint.

So anyways, you have a good game. The music annoyed me a bit, and I would have loved a better place for your mute button, but still glad you gave me one. The graphics felt good, for the quality of the game it fits perfectly.

It could have been really great, but it sort of flopped on me half way through. Good attempt though.

7/10, 3/5

Keep at it.

That is a pretty decent game. Fairly short, but amusing. I have to say, though, that the colouring of the squirrel seems a tad off - they don't normally have white patches.... Unless, of course, you're claiming that to be some sort of red/grey hybrid. However, the Sonic the Hedgehog reference at the end makes up for it.

I liked it. I like that games "time attack/fast pace plataformers".
Just found the gameplay a little repetitive and the music is very annoying. That's why I gave a 7.

The medals are a good challenge, and when I saw the endings, I had to hold myself to not sing out loud "seeeeeegaaaaaaaaa" hahaha

Well, I must say I expected more. When I read "NegativeONE" I remembered "Newgrounds Rumble". But this game is not bad at all.

It's alright

Visually, this game is great and the concept is awesome. However, you just can't see obstacles in front of you that well due to your squirrel being so close to the front of the screen.

It looks more like a fox.
(but that may just be me)
