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.

Acorn Assault Rodent Revolution is a turn based strategy game about French squirrels trying to overthrow the abusive monarchy that ruled over them and took their acorns. At the start of each battle you will place your soldiers and other pieces on your side of the board, these might include defensive barrels or sandbags. Each unit will act automatically with rows attacking in order, your opponent then does the same, when it becomes your turn again you are able to place new pieces onto the battlefield. Units can be combined into a stronger unit by placing multiple copies of the same unit next to each other. The goal of the battles are to destroy your enemy's base while defending yours, bases are damaged by shooting through undefended areas to hit the base behind that sides soldiers. Piles of acorns that are lying on the board can be gathered and spent to give attack, defence, or base healing upgrades to all of your units for the next turn. The game is not very long, it is divided into five different chapters with five battles in each. The story mostly fails at being amusing or funny, editing historic names to fit the squirrels in short scenes before each battle. Battles just involve you placing your randomised units in the correct spots and spending your acorns in the best ways, it's a very simple game that can become repetitive and that doesn't last very long. Not bad but there are better options for fans of strategy games like this.
