On paper LumbearJack looks as if a winner. Visuals which are stuffed with character, an environmental pleasant message, and gameplay that appears satisfyingly damaging.
Sadly all of it simply falls slightly quick in nearly each space, leaving you wishing a bit extra time had been spent on sprucing up the gameplay.
You play because the titular LumbearJack, and wander by means of twenty quick levels combating an Evil firm. Not many particulars are supplied in your foe – however principally they’re destroying your woodland residence and should be stopped.
You do that by whacking all the things with an axe, which you’ll be able to improve throughout levels in case you destroy sufficient particles that you just acquire in your backpack.
There’s an preliminary pleasure to enjoying LumbearJack. Environments spring up with life and greenery when you clear away the evil company’s equipment, and there’s a variety of animal characters stuffed with character to rescue.
Sadly it turns into very clear just a few levels in that this can be a one trick bear, and though there are some very slight variations – akin to bombs to whack alongside set paths to trigger extra destruction, and occasional easy puzzles – there simply isn’t sufficient right here to maintain anybody however the very younger entertained.
Even then, they gained’t be enjoying for lengthy – it takes not more than two hours to hurry by means of the twenty levels, and that’s even in case you’re accumulating (and whacking) all the things.
The sport is priced well, nevertheless it finally doesn’t really feel polished sufficient to even justify its decrease finish price ticket. We encountered a few stage breaking bugs within the ultimate stage, and never sufficient effort has been put into various the gameplay up – one thing like Donut County had true escalating stakes for instance, with challenges to match.
It’s a disgrace, as a result of regardless of its admirable environmental message LumbearJack is a troublesome title to advocate – even for youthful gamers.
