"…what are yew waiting for? Branch out, and give this charming puzzle game a try. Yule won't be sorry."
8.5/10 – Destructoid


“Verdict: Trees suck”
Internet Freaks


"…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."
10/10 – Leviathyn


"You chop logs, and try not to chop beavers. Sometimes, there’s maple syrup."
Penny Arcade


About the Game

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.

Oh yes I recommend this game! It's probably the only iPhone port I didin't mind because it plays well on a computer and didin't feel like one at all. It actually takes quite a while to complete the game and I got it for very cheap. It will test your reflexes and the story is quite fun.

The CONS: Sometimes the hitbox of logs might get you a failed cut when you actually did it right and 2 stages in particular are way too hard to get ''Perfect'' in the hardest difficulty compared to the rest of the game.

You might want to get this if it goes on sale!

I wood give this a full review, but let me just chop the time in half by not branching out into unwanted verbiage and saying it is, seedless to say, just a fruit ninja clone with a silly story and not much depth behind the trunk. Despite not there being much to root for, I will leaf a score of tree out of five (3/5).

Birch please!
Acorny time.
RelAXE, everything will be just pine.
I planted this review just for you.
I'd think of more, but I am stumped.

This is a cute game but would be better as either a mobile game or Facebook game than a Steam game. Using a mouse to slice through wood is fun for about a minute. I can't in good conscience recommend this game to anyone.

A game like Jack Lumber was meant to be played on portable phones. Its gameplay is so shallow and its price so steep that I just can't recommend this to anyone, even if it is fun for sessions of 10 minutes.

The graphics are clearly upscaled which results in the game occasionally having blurry graphics and the sounds are actually pathetic.

The gameplay is all about cutting up trees, or pieces of lumber actually. You have to cut them up in a certain way and as fast as possible to gain enough points. At the end of a level is an animal that can be rescued by not cutting it up. Succesfully doing this will have the animal appear in your cabin. Unfortunately, it gives you no rewards and they're absolutely pointless.

Play it on your iPhone and you'll have some fun, but playing this on your PC is a waste of money.
