"…the game is solid at it’s core. Well built and full of cute animals. What more could you ask for?"
8.75/10 – Subpar Gamers


"The best thing about Jack Lumber is the story under the plaid and flying splinters of wood. Chopping down the forest to see it is great fun."

Über dieses Spiel

A tree killed his granny and now he is out for revenge. Meet Jack Lumber, the supernatural lumberjack who hates trees, loves animals, and hates trees. Did we say that twice? The guy really hates trees, and boy does he have an axe to grind.

Use the supernatural powers of Jack Lumber to massacre the forest in this time-warping, line-drawing, log-slicing, pun-filled lumberjacking mashup! Bust out your flannel to muster the strength and burlyness to solve the skill and logic puzzles (flannel not actually required).

Fight the forest and make Granny proud! Eff trees!

Key Features

  • Chug the blood of your foes; drink Granny's magical syrups to enhance your log-chopping powers.
  • Stack beards like you'd stack a pile of flapjacks; more beards add more challenge!
  • Poke at the adorable forest animals living in your cabin after you’ve destroyed their forest homes.
  • Unlock Infinitree Mode; chop till you drop!
  • Pining for puns? Yule love the quirky humor and piles of puns packed into Jack Lumber (alliteration is a bonus!)
  • Unlockable missions, player driven challenges, and inventive syrup power-up combos make replaying this game a real tree-t.

This is Fruit Ninja in a slightly different skin. The challenge in this game is generated from players needing to swipe in a specfic direction. This is a small gimmic and one which does no favour to its entertainment value.

There is nothing noteworthy in this game. It was made with tablets in mind which adds in a nice variety of poor collision detection. The best that might be said is that it could entertain a 10 year old.

I would not suggest people spend money on this.

A fun fruit ninja clone that is sadly crippled by mouse controls being poor. If you have a touch screen, I'd recommend it.

This game was lame,
Full of unearned fame,
It's really a shame,
That I played this game
It started out tame
But sadly became
An unenjoyable experience

So excrutitatingly bland and without inspiration I don't even know why people spent actual time to make it. What a waste of time, for both the player and the developer.

Jack... Lumber? Are you Serious?! [KAMGUSTA's REVIEW]

I'll begin by saying this is an iOS port, so it was thought for touchscreens. By the way, it works good also with the mouse (not perfectly, but good)! :-)

So... You are Jack Lumber, the lumberjack... Evil pines killed your granny... You'll go out with your mighty axe to seek revenge... exterminating all the logs you'll find... saving your little forest friends... and trying to solve the evil mystery that lies behind (??!)...

It is a nice fruitninja-like game where you have to perpendiculary cut a lot of moving logs (helped by slow time) by moving your mouse cursor! But where the game really shines is in its humor, from the animals' sounds mimicked by mouth by the developers, to the granny that will send you stupid letters from his new "home" and from Illuminati to to a soul mate named Jill Lumber that seeks revenge, too...

LOL!

Best played with Mouse (or iOS)

I got this game in a humble bundle. It is probably about average but worth an occasional play.
I don't have a problem using a cursor to play and it is made easier by the time slowing. Fruit ninja on the other hand is almost impossible to play with a cursor.

It can get repetitive after a while so is only really worth a short play.

I recommend it but only during a bundle or at a low sale price. It probably isn't worth the full price. Don't be put off by the minority of haters since you may find you quite like it as I did.

I played this on a Surface Pro, which is a tablet computer.
It is really mediocre, and having a stylus feels like cheating, even though this is just your generic "fruit ninja" clone.
You can get a much better "fruit ninja" like game on your phone for much less than the €5 being asked for this game.

Easily one of the worst games I've ever played, and a terrible waste of bandwidth spent downloading it. The only reason I got this is because it came with a Humble Bundle. This is Fruit Ninja with wooden logs. Why the HELL would I play a tablet game on my PC? The developers should be ashamed of themselves for releasing this trash.

There are casual games for casual gamers and then there are casual games for core gamers who want to play a casual game.

Of these two types of games Jack Lumber is definitly the latter. With witty characters and gameplay that stays challenging there is no reason to not pick up this exciting game.

Für ein Tablet Spiel ist es ganz gut....was, das ist ein PC Spiel???
Nein, wirklich NEIN. Selbst runtergesetzt könnt ihr das Geld besser für etwas anderes ausgeben.
Das Spielprinzip: Verschiedene Holzscheite erscheinen auf den Bildschirm, drehen und wenden sich dabei. Sobald ihr nun die linke Maustaste drückt läuft ein Timer und ihr müßt eine Linie der Länge nach durch alle Holzscheite ziehen, dabei gibt es bestimmte Scheite die nur in einer Richtung *gehackt* werden können, oder auch unterschiedliche Formen haben und verschiedene Hindernisse (Tiere) die ihr nicht verletzen sollt.
Eure Bewertung hängt von der Zeit ab die ihr dafür benötigt und wird mit denen aller Spieler verglichen.
Für etwa 5 Minuten ganz interessant, aber dann......irgendwie hatte ich bei der Beschreibung des Spieles mehr erwartet.

I have very mixed views on this game, the first thing that springs to mind is that it is a blatant clone of Fruit Ninja (one of my most used apps back when I had an iPhone) with a few added features like a story (I'll get onto that below) and different kinds of logs to chop in different ways (although I find this feature takes away from the game and since the time slows when you click it becomes somewhat easy).

So, the story (I'll use spoiler tags but honestly there isn't much to spoil):
You are a lumberjack named Jack Lumber, your grandma gets pulverised by a tree and you suddenly turn into a hardwood furniture store growing a hateful resentment for trees everywhere, you go chopping logs collecting a variety of animals (that you have undoubtedly destroyed the homes and families of). That's pretty much all I've gathered from my extensive game time.
That's one of the things that makes me dislike this game, it's taken me less than 20 minutes and I feel like I've experienced everything the game has to offer, apart from maybe more than 6 logs being thrown up on screen at once later in the repetitive level system.

This game I would say is actually worth the cost... if it weren't a Fruit Ninja clone.
Use your money more wisely, I wholly advise you to get Fruit Ninja, it's more quirky, more original, and cheaper.

I'd give this game:
Creativity - 3/10
Looks - 6/10
Difficulty - 4/10 (Too easy)
Replayability - 4/10 (Gets old fast)
Total - 4.25/10
