Based on the developer's past App Store record, it's safe to say that iOS game-maker Ravenous Games certainly has the platforming formula down, along other things. Previously at the helm of popular titles including League of Evil, League of Evil 2, Random Heroes, and Beatdown, the indie developer has managed to capture the App Store's attention with its extensive lineup.

Little Acorns ($0.99) is the newest to offer platforming fun from Chillingo - putting a cute twist on the usual formula, the premise is simple to get a hold of. You and your family of squirrels have returned home to find out that cunning raccoons have stolen your stash of acorns. You must navigate through a series of fairly-well designed levels in order to recover the valuable items that you so unfortunately lost.
