Being a squirrel must be ace. You get to lounge around in the treetops all day, and every once in a while dig up a nut or two (if you can remember where you left them).

This particular squirrel, star of the ridiculously named Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo, has lost his nuts all over the place. Fortunately, grabbing them all makes for an entertaining platformer.

From acorns grow mighty stereoscopic 3D visuals

Super Little Acorns is all about dashing around a series of small levels, hunting down acorns and fruit, and bopping baddies on the head.

Only once you've grabbed all the acorns (and baby squirrels, if they are any) can you exit out of the door. It's all timed, as well, so you can't hang around.

The game is hugely stylish, from the gorgeously animated visuals to the bouncy soundtrack. At the end of each level, the acorns you collected are thrown into a giant tree pit together - it's such a simple yet lovely idea, and just one element that makes Super Little Acorns stand out so much.

There's plenty of content on offer, too, with multiple "years" to beat, boss battles, to overcome, enjoyable challenges to take on, costumes to collect, and achievements to unlock.

And that's without even mentioning the replay value. Each level has speedruns and medals to grab - essentially, it'll be quite a number of hours before you complete this game 100 percent.

Not so little

The action thrown your way is a little tepid to begin with, and takes a while to truly get going.

It's still enjoyable, but there isn't really much of a challenge - you can easily grab everything and beat the speed run time on your first go with many of the levels in the first hour of play.

Eventually, however, Super Little Acorns does ramp up the volume, and things get far more exciting, with perfect jumps required, and the clock ticking away to your potential failure.

It doesn't help that the controls feel rather floaty, mind. Numerous times I found myself overshooting a jump, or slipping off a platform, and cursing that damn squirrel for being just a tad too flimsy.

Should you grab Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo, then? Yes. It's entertaining, it's stylish, and above all else it's a damn fine Nintendo 3DS game.
