    Timberman VS is a surprisingly solid party game that will keep you and your friends entertained for short bursts of time. Crank out the Joy-Con and get to chopping, because the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

    Timberman VS is a game of short, sporadic games that has no depth and that looks like a strange title on Nintendo Switch. Its low price can justify its existence in the console, but it’s a game that you will easily forget.

    Ultimately, whether you play within the company of others or not, what's on offer is a well-presented but simple and highly repetitive package.

    Timberman Vs is such a confused and poorly thought out game, I wouldn't recommend it if it was free (and it is free on the iPhone anyway).

    There are many games out there that let you be whatever it is you want to be. Whether its a solider, race car drive, or football star. VideoThere are many games out there that let you be whatever it is you want to be. Whether its a solider, race car drive, or football star. Video games come in all shapes and genres. Timberman Vs is a game that seems pretty simple, but is highly addictive. The role you assume in Timberman Vs is simply put, a wood chopper. You chop wood and before you click away let me tell you its so addicting. large There are three game modes in Timberman Vs, Classic, Hero, and Race. Classic is where you chop, chop,chop until you get the highest score possible. I only ever managed one hundred and fifty five as my best score, a new record on my Switch. Hero mode, is where you are placed in an inferno and you must chop down a tree to save little birds in the top. I did so only once and I was rewarded for it. Finally the mode that really makes you sweat, Race. In this mode, you will race 3 friends to become to the best Timberman. I never won because wasn’t fast enough

    Graphically Timberman is in pixel form. I loved it and there are so many references to older Nintendo games. These references are used as the backgrounds for each location you are chopping at. I also really enjoyed the sound of Timberman Vs, it was a real throwback to the good old days of 8-bit goodness.

    My Time spent in the game was fantastic and I find myself after the review going to play over and over again. Its really a fun and challenging game. On the surface it looks a bit goofy but its a game any gamer should try. With friends or alone Timberman Vs is an amazingly fun game and will keep you coming back for more!

    5/5

It's really funny, especially when you play with your friends in multiplayer. I bought it with my credit points, but it's worth of it's price. Small but addictive game. I wish there was an online multi... So I give it 9/10 o_O Expand

    For 2€ there's not much that can go wrong but I still feel like I wasted my money when I bought this.

    The game is very simple and there is really only one mode with three different approaches to it but thankfully it's kind of fun.
    Play it with friends to get the most out of it but don't expect more than 10 min of game play at a time.

    With Timberman VS, you get exactly what you pay 1.99$ for. It's a fairly decent game, but you're probably gonna get bored after an hour or two.

    Timberman VS is a simple one trick pony without much lasting effect. I enjoyed the original Timberman on PC, but I just could not get intoTimberman VS is a simple one trick pony without much lasting effect. I enjoyed the original Timberman on PC, but I just could not get into this iteration despite more characters, modes and backgrounds. Online multiplayer didn't work for me and still trying it out to refresh my memory it didn't work here and I have Switch Online. Expand
