Squirly Review on iOS

squirlySquirly is another entry in the crowded endless runner genre of games. Developed by Devided,  Squirly is about a flying squirrel who who is one day swooped up by a giant bird and then left in an unfamiliar forest filled with danger. Your goal will be to get Squirly back home to his magical happy forest while avoiding dangers like snakes, monkeys, and the random tree branch.

The game is simple enough to learn and get into. The whole game is basically a one tap affair. Each tap of the screen moves Squirly in the opposite direction, either left or right. Just move him left or right to avoid obstacles and enemies while also collecting nuts to increase your score and score multipliers. There are even powerups you can collect that randomly affect the game.

For the most part, Squirly is a simple game that is easy to pick up that can be played by both children and adults. As an endless runner, it’s not as hard as other games in the genre, but it’s also not super easy where there isn’t a challenge. Graphically, the game looks nice and it leans more to the cutesy side of thing.

What I don’t like about the game however is that the ads kind of get in the way a bit. I know the game is ad supported and that’s fine, but it’s where they place the ads that is the problem. The ad banner is right at the bottom edge of the border, close to where you would be tapping on the screen to control Squirly. Other than that, the game isn’t too bad. It will more than likely appeal to kids more than it will adults.

This is a delightful all-ages squirrel game about a cheerful little flying squirrel – aptly named “Squirly” – who lives in a magical and happy forest with his other squirrel friends.

Bravely, Squirly manages to fight himself loose – except that instead of falling back into his forest home, he’s plunged into an unfamiliar jungle full of snakes and monkeys!
