Jack Lumber

Normally $3.99.

Use the supernatural powers of Jack Lumber to massacre the forest and make Granny proud in this time-warping line-drawing log-slicing pun-filled lumberjacking mashup from Owlchemy Labs!

Jack Lumber is ‘Poplar’ With the Press!

4 out of 4, A Must Have!
“Between the excellent art style, goofy humor, and enjoyable gameplay, Jack Lumber is as lovable as its rugged hero. It’s the stuff of App Store legends.”
– Andrew Podolsky | Slide to Play

“…A funny (and solid!) story, hilarious power-ups, and non-intrusive IAP. Jack Lumber is an easy shoe-in for one of this year’s best iOS games.”
– Ashley Esqueda | G4 ‘Knuckle Up’

“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.”
– Carter Dotson | 148Apps

“The addition of super-hard four-star scores and difficulty-upping beards keep the replay value high. Jack Lumber injects a welcome layer of depth and strategy into the casual touch-slicing genre. The title is a great combination of frantic finger action and smart combo scoring.”
– Justin Davis | IGN

“Axe-identally in love; funny and addictive, and has tremendous respect for the player. Jack Lumber is quirky, stylized, and unlike anything on iOS.”
– Chris Plante | The Verge
A tree killed his granny and now he is out for revenge. Meet Jack Lumber, the superhuman lumberjack who hates trees, loves animals, and hates trees. Did we say that twice? The guy really hates trees.

Hike the trails of Flapjack Forest, trudge through The Loggers Bog, and ascend Widowmaker’s Peak chopping down every pine, oak, and maple that stands between you and the tree that killed your sweet old granny.

With one mighty swing of his axe, Jack Lumber sends logs, syrup bottles, explosives, and forest critters flying into the air.

Use magic powers to enter LumberTime. With the logs suspended in slow motion, draw a smooth path for Jack’s axe following the grain of every treacherous log.
Poke at the adorable forest animals living rent-free in your cabin after you’ve destroyed their homes

Raid Granny’s Cupboard!
– Drink Granny’s magical syrups to enhance your powers.
– Intensify the gameplay by equipping challenging new beards
– Spruce up the old cabin with tasteful lumber-decor!
– Turn the forest into sawdust with the finesse and grace that only a burly lumberjack can possess. But be careful not to harm your furry friends.

Every level requires timing, skill, logic, and flannel to solve. (Flannel wear not actually required) Unlockable missions, player driven challenges, and inventive power-up combos make it exciting to play this game again and again.

– Universal support
– GameCenter Leaderboards and Achievements
– Optimized for retina displays on the New iPad, iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5
– Social features (seamless Twitter/Facebook integration)

Dwelp is an elegant little puzzler with a brand new game mechanic. To complete a puzzle, just link all of the same-colored dots by placing them one near another. There’s a catch, though… Once you have connected two dots, the others of the same color become locked in their place.

It’s so simple to understand, yet it opens up a whole world of possibilities! Why “only” 120 puzzles, then? Because they were carefully selected from hundreds of others, in order to offer you only the best of the best.

Each puzzle has more than one solution (and some have thousands). Will you find the one that requires the least number of moves? That’s the real challenge! Should you complete it, you will be treated to a select number of puzzles that are bordering on impossibility. But the satisfaction of solving one of those can’t be described in words…

Designed specifically for the iOS devices and carefully crafted to the tiniest detail, Dwelp brings you puzzle solving at its finest.

==== FEATURES ====

• 120 hand-crafted puzzles with a smooth difficulty curve

• An ultra-hard puzzle pack, if you are up to a tough challenge and have some good hours to spare

• Bonus puzzle pack with a different type of gameplay

• Game Center integration with 16 achievements to earn and a global leaderboard to conquer by mastering all the puzzles

• Handy features like the puzzle previewer, the progress saver and the powerful undoer, to enhance your gaming experience

• Easy one-handed portrait-mode control

• Working equally fine in landscape mode without any rotation – on the iPhone too

• IAP-free & ad-free
