Lumberjack magician by ChewingApps Ltd. is an adorable iOS game that features a wizard with tree chopping spells.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this game aims to keep its players yelling “Timber!!!”

Features:

Lumberjack magician is a simple and straightforward game that is both charming and addicting.

The game has a quick and easy learning curve, yet the fairly addictive gameplay will keep you playing repeatedly. Specifically speaking, Lumberjack magician incorporates a “wizardry” way of chopping down trees; the object of the game is to chop down a tree with an unmeasurable height, all while avoiding the branches.

Overall, it’s a very simple concept that still proves addictively challenging. Shortly after learning the concepts of the game, I found myself repeatedly trying to get a higher score. The more “chops” you make on the tree, the higher your score.

Not only is there motivation to get a high score, but there are goals set in place to unlock additional “8-bit” characters. In total, there are 3 characters to choose from that are intentionally similar to characters of Harry Potter. In fact, on the first screen of the game it says “Hogwarts Edition.”

Additionally, Lumberjack magician offers four different levels/ environments that add variety to the game.

Appearance and Layout:

Lumberjack magician is stylized like a home console game from the early 90s. Specifically, the character models within the game look excellent and appealing. For some players, this old-school style will provide a wonderful nostalgia of their younger days.

The overall theme of Lumberjack magician has many comparable elements to the universe of the Harry Potter series, and fans of the popular book series will probably be attracted to the app because of these similarities.

However, a rather frustrating aspect of Lumberjack magician is the number of pop-up ads that appear on screen. Since the game is fast-paced and involves tapping the screen quickly, it’s easy to click an ad by accident. This issue severely detracts from the appeal of the game and makes it less enjoyable.

Value:

Like many iOS apps, Lumberjack magician is free to download, but it has an option within the app to remove the ads with a one-time purchase of $0.99. Since the ads are quite a nuisance in the game, some people may find that small fee worth it.

Look at the free download like a demo, if you like it, go ahead, spring for the buck to make the game that much more enjoyable.

Overall, if you’re looking for a quick and easy game to kill time with, Lumberjack magician may be a great option.
