FavoriteLoadingAdd game to your favorites

This is a fun 20-level winter-themed physics strategy game where you must inflate or deflate the round squirrel to make it float or roll to collect nuts and reach the finish line. Watch out for plant spikes lined on walls and grounds. If your squirrel hits spikes, falls, or floats out of the screen, it’s game over. You lose if you reach the finish line with only one nut. To challenge yourself, try to collect all three nuts before you reach the finish line. Unlock all 20 levels and enjoy replaying the game anytime.

  • Select the sleeping squirrel to release it from the bubble. This wakes it up and it floats.
  • To deflate the squirrel, simply select it again. It will release air and fall down.
  • Players can inflate and deflate the squirrel anytime while it’s floating on air.
  • Try to collect 3 nuts every level. Avoid falling, floating off screen, or hitting plant spikes.

      • There are instances where the squirrel looks close enough to deflate and fall.
      • However, your squirrel can fall through the grassy side of the finish line nest.
      • Make sure you fall directly on top of the finish line nest before deflating the squirrel.
      • A squirrel can roll to the finish line nest as long as it has the right force and momentum to reach it.

  • Joey says:

    This is a fun yet challenging puzzle game that will test your reaction times. Your goal is to guide the flying squirrel across a maze and gather acorns. You clear the level when your squirrel arrives at the nest in the end. Tap once to wake them up. Tapping at them again toggles their membrane.

    The squirrel travels through the level by drifting. When their membrane is open, they float around in the direction of the wind. When they close it, they fall. Be careful, though. It is possible for them to lose forward momentum. When this happens, they get stuck.

    You must alternate between opening and closing to help them keep moving. To gather all the acorns, you must help them drift to the right locations. Timing is critical. Pay attention to where the acorns are and any obstacles in your way.
