It's Wednesday and do you know what that means? A new Xbox Live Game of the Week is out for Windows Phone!
This week’s new Xbox Live game is Little Acorns by Electronic Arts. A game with adorable graphics where you play as a squirrel gathering acorns? I don't know what soulless jerkoff could say no to that. This popular platformer has been on iOS since this February, and in that time it's gathered some pretty good reviews. We have a feeling Little Acorns will be met with the same warm and fuzzy affection in the Marketplace, although the higher price is a bit of a letdown. Regardless, you'd be nuts not to try it. Har har har. Here is the official description of the game:
Guide Mr. Nibbles the acorn hoarding squirrel through a variety of levels in this charming platforming adventure. Collect the acorns scattered around each zone to stock up for winter. Featuring super simple controls, a variety of game mechanics with a cute and lovable look, Little Acorns is an adventure that is completely at home on Windows Phone®
• LITTLE ACORNS...BIG GAME
Little Acorns features 80 cleverly designed levels to explore! Spread out over 4 seasons and 4 years, you'll be hunting nuts for hours on end!
• SEASONED GAMEPLAY
Fluid, simple platforming controls that mean players of all skills can enjoy this captivating adventure. With classic platformer gameplay, mixed with a modern visual style, you'd be nuts not to love it.

P.S. It appears as though there will not be a Deal of the Week this week. Why? We honestly don't know, since this is the second straight week without a discount Xbox Live game. We'll tell you when we know more.
