Help Joe the lumberjack get his wood back in Lumber Jacked – a fast-paced retro platformer
Lumber Jacked is split into multiple not-so-large stages, which you must complete within a given time frame. Succeed and you'll be awarded three stars. Seems simple? Well, it isn't. There are obstacles to avoid, arrows to dodge, high platforms to reach, and beavers to knock out with Joe's fists of steel. Overall, the game is neither too easy, nor too difficult. It just takes a little while to get used to the on-screen controls and to the jumping mechanics. Once you master the double leaps and the wall jumps, you should be ready to tackle the harder stages of the game.
Graphics in Lumber Jacked are in pixelated 2D, which gives the game a pronounced retro feel. The lack of fancy visual effects and HD graphics means that it should run even on weaker hardware. Sound, on the other hand, is anything but old-school. A fast-paced rock tune plays in the background, fitting the action-packed nature of the game perfectly.
