Lumber Jack is an indie game about a crazy lumberjack who hates the trees and tries to destroy all of them.


A tree killed Lumber Jack's granny, and he is furious and desires revenge. The protagonist uses his supernatural powers to massacre the whole forest. The player's aim is not only to destroy the trees but also to solve skill and logic puzzles.


The gameplay is all about cutting up pieces of lumber. The player has to cut them up in a certain way and as fast as possible - thus he can gain enough points. Lumber Jack lives in a rather mysterious and odd world where strange things occur. He can drink Granny's magical syrups to improve his log-chopping powers, collects beards, shelters the forest animals in his cabin after destroying their forest homes - they appear at the end of each level. There is a pun telling beaver which talks to Lumber Jack; other animals make some cute noises.

Key features

The player can unlock Infinitree Mode which requires chopping as many trees as possible. There are also game challenges centered around certain missions; for instance, the player must build up a stockpile of wood, which is used as a store to buy beards, pictures, and buffs (they allow to make mistakes and fix them).

Jack Lumber reviews and comments

I snore Here a thumbs up but nevertheless there were many Points that bothered me with Jack Lumber: 1. Short Game time 2. Definitely designed on tablet/smartphones, on the PC the Game is much more difficult, unless you have a good Mouse. 3. Relatively little variety 4th Right lame Story, which I also didn't find particularly funny. In addition, the Game conveys the View that Trees are evil. Well you can still take with Humor and a bit funny I found the Part again. Jack Lumber is not a bad Game overall, but it is not suitable for the PC, but rather for Tablets. The comic scenes (which unfortunately hardly occur) are made quite cool but there is not much Variety and you have to collect a certain Number of Stars in order to progress, which can be quite annoying. In addition, I find €5, in fact, a lot more for the short Fun. Therefore, as I said: In the Beginning quite funny but rather monotonous. And more recommended for Tablets, therefore buyable but preferably not on Steam. Did the Review help you? Then follow me in my Steam Group, where I write my Reviews as a Curator.

Played 4 mins already tired, maybe I should check some more what it was for games. Leave this to my son's 7. And see what he thinks.

Great casual game, equally suitable for fans of Fruit Ninja and Max Payne (Bullet Time) ;-) Great art design, nice sound, just a round thing.

This is a great variation of the fruit game, and yet different enough to get out and not least play. It is a progression all the way, with ever new challenges.

Fruit ninja is nice but disadvantage + motivating factor is that if you hit a bomb or drop something 3 times you are finished With this game it is not that you are allowed to make mistakes, the only disadvantage is that you then have no / less chance of gold / silver as a "medal". Moreover, it is nice and fresh and therefore worth 0.79 cents!

This game looks like Fruit Ninja, in the sense that you have to cut pieces of wood here. But that's not all, since you have to cut them in a well-defined order, which adds to the difficulty! Beautiful graphics, simple maneuverability and soundtrack rather russie. One less canvas for the concept already seen. Thank you Sega. :)

A curious variant of the Fruit Ninja, which has not had as many sequels and clones as one might expect for its success. The main difference is that here you slow down the time as soon as you put your finger on the screen, and you must cut the trunks by drawing a line and longitudinally, it is not worth any way. And there are trunks of different shapes, with a single sense of cut, etc. A good idea well developed, highly recommended.
