About Squirrel with a Gun

Squirrel, meet gun. As the neighborhood’s most troublesome rodent, develop a knack (and perhaps an affinity?) for crime and mayhem in pursuit of golden acorns in this distinctive sandbox shooter and puzzle platformer. Fight tooth, claw, and gun to escape a clandestine underground facility and overcome the Agents.

In Squirrel with a Gun, you begin as a mere rodent with a dream. However, once armed with one of the many firearms that squirrels so frequently encounter in nature, you’ll use your weapon to confront the agents pursuing you. Despite your small stature, you have the potential to cause significant disruption.

This squirrel is equipped with more than one strategy. Need to make a quick escape? Fire your weapon and use the recoil to propel yourself to safety. With seven different firearms to collect, RC cars to commandeer, and chaos to instigate, the world is your acorn in Squirrel with a Gun. Cause disorder, forage for nuts, interrupt picnics, steal cake, and more to prove you’re a rodent not to be underestimated.

Swap out weapons to try your paw at all 12 types of enemy takedowns.

Solve Intricate Puzzle Rooms to Collect Golden Acorns — Navigate unique puzzle challenges to collect all the golden acorns by getting creative with how you use your arsenal of weapons, using weapon recoil to give yourself a boost. Collect enough golden acorns to unlock hidden sections of the game.
