The guts of the game see logs thrown in the air, the activation of ‘LumberTime’ with a finger and your criss-crossing touch attempting to split every spinning lump of wood with panache and finesse. Some misgrown logs require slices down different axes, others are ‘one way’ splitters and still more need multiple slices to dice ‘em – meaning that the trail you leave when time is slowed becomes increasingly deranged. The line you etch with a pudgy finger must be continuous – there’s no ninja swipes allowed here…
With every level you complete you’re rewarded with an extra animal you can bounce around your log cabin, letting it slowly but surely turn into a blend of Springwatch and a soft play centre. On top of this, meanwhile there are syrups to purchase that’ll eradicated your logging errors – and ever bigger beards to wear to raise difficulty levels and multipliers.
Jack Lumber is simple fare, rendered maple sweet by slick presentation and deft touches of humour. He’s a Lumberjack, and he’s okay.
Jack Lumber can be bought off of the App Store for 69p innit. INSERT LINK HERE WHY DONCHA. (‘Okay then, I will!’- Links Ed.)
