Jack Lumber

JohnBJack be nimble, Jack be— oh, forget that old number. Jack Lumber is a path drawing arcade game from Owlchemy Labs. Jack's granny has been kidnapped by a walking tree, and in order to rescue her, he's got to do some serious chopping, Fruit Ninja style! Jack's big and burly and very handy with an axe. Not only can he chop down trees, he can apparently channel lightning to aid in his epic quest. It's time to mow through the forest, murderlizing everything wooden until you get your granny back!

Jack LumberA series of logs flies into the air, spinning out of control and quickly sinking to the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold your finger to slow time to a crawl, giving you a few precious seconds to draw a path. This path is the path Jack's axe will take, so you'll want to move through each log from end to end, making a clean cut as quickly as you can. As soon as you remove your finger, Jack gets chopping, your score gets tallied, and more logs fly your way.

Chopping logs isn't always a straightforward task. In addition to the usual array of standard logs, you'll also encounter L-shaped logs, crossed logs, one-way logs, logs you have to chop multiple times (we're presuming they're oak), and plenty more. So, instead of just freezing time and drawing a line, you're also plotting a precise path through the air, all within a few small seconds of time. Kinda makes you feel awesome, doesn't it? Like Thor the lumberjack astronaut or something.

Jack Lumber is a simple game, but it's got a lot of attitude and style. It's precisely one of those titles you pick up, play around with for a while, then find yourself coming back for more again and again. Gotta collect more woodland animals, gotta do more lumberjack chores, and gotta rescue grandma!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on an iPad. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
