Childhood game about Squirrels?

Post by Fjums10 » Mon Aug 19, 2019 2:14 pm

Hello.

I have cloudy memories of a game i used to play at school during lunchbreaks.

The gameplay was platformer with some shooter mechanics thrown in, it might gave been a gun, but it was at least a weapon of some kind.

As far as i remember you play as a Squirrel wearing a headband.
I'm fairly sure you also had the option to play as different characters.

All i remember is some sort of cutscene, and then the beginning of the first level.

The level was a forest level, where you would jump from treebranch to treebranch clearing the stage of enemies.

Now, i know what you're thinking, but i'm certain that it isnt Jazz Jackrabbit nor is it Zero the kamikaze squirrel, since i played this on a PC back in the day. Also the version i played, might have been a shareware one. Hence me only remembering the first level....

Hope you guys might be able to help me out :shifty: :(

Since you haven't disclosed your age it is not possible for us to know when that was, which significantly broadens the range of years and platforms/systems your game might have been released in/on.

The Skunny series is about a squirrel.

However there's also a character called The Flying Squirrel in another shareware game, Heroes: The Sanguine Seven.

The first level of Skunny: Back to the Forest doesn't feature jumping from tree branch to another. There's jumping around tree branches in yet another shareware game, Guimo, but it's about a green alien completely unlike a squirrel.

The MobyGames list of games with squirrels doesn't mention anything interesting for the PC platform from the shareware era (early to mid 90s) apart from Skunny.

I'm born 1999, and i think i played the game when i was around 6-7 years old. Meaning i played the game around the year 2005-2006. But i'm fairly sure the game is older than that!
