This morning Bradley and I sat down with Jack Lumber (Free), a really slick Fruit Ninja-style game from the dudes behind Smuggle Truck and published by Sega. I say Fruit Ninja-like in that logs get thrown up on the screen and you need to chop them, the mechanic is just similar enough to feel familiar, but thanks to a bullet time-ish time slowing thing it almost feels totally fresh. Sort of like switching from tube socks to ankle socks. Wait.
Anyway, unlike Fruit Ninja there’s a definite feeling of progression as you tweak out your cabin with paintings and various random wildlife and you need to chop things in specific ways instead of just randomly swiping across everything. You’ll see all this and more in the video:
