    Jack Lumber is a mythic, larger-than-life character who could be the App Store's modern-day Paul Bunyan.

    If you're a fan of Fruit Ninja, you will love Jack Lumber.

    Jack Lumber is completely ridiculous and I love it. It's easy to pick up and play, has plenty of laughs, and actually has a great number of levels to go along with it. Put on some flannel, grow out that beard, and chop some wood.

    Jack Lumber is quirky, stylized, and unlike anything on iOS. And yet it's very welcoming, very warm - not what you'd expect from a game starring a one-man eco-pocalypse.

    I'm still sitting here bleary-eyed, blister on my finger, totally satisfied for having played this game way past the time I should be in bed.

    Not without its merits, Jack Lumber is a decent line drawer, but it never manages to spark into life.

    Jack Lumber evolves the slashing formula of titles like Fruit Ninja by adding a bit of finesse. Similarly to the food-slashing game, logs will fly onto the screen and it's your job to hack them into pieces.
