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

    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.

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

    Jack Lumber is a simple game but it works and it's fun and entertaining, so it's pretty much everything we can ask for. This universal app for both iPod/iPhone and iPad will definitely keep you playing, even though maybe for a slightly short time.

    It remains disarmingly single-minded throughout, yet any repetition is offset by intuitive, precise controls, and satisfying audiovisual feedback.

    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.

    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.

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

    It's kinda like Fruit Ninja with bullet time, oh and you're taking revenge on the trees that killed your granny. Make of that what you will.

    Jack Lumber packs enough content and line drawing mayhem to warrant a look, especially from players that enjoy over the top characters. After weeks of hearing about this game, however, we expected something more exciting. Instead, it made us yawn.

    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.
