The hunt for nuts is a physics-based puzzler that plays like the popular mobile game, Cut the Rope. Each level presents you with a squirrel, which is suspended by ropes. You must cut the ropes in such a way that the squirrel reaches the hungry, baby squirrel. Although not a requirement, you should try to collect all three acorns in each level. Throughout the game's 48 levels, you will encounter hazards like spiky platforms, as well as helpful things like bubbles and pigs. Your squirrel will float when it touches a bubble; click on the bubble to pop it. When clicked on, a pig will blow the squirrel in the direction it is facing.
