Jack Lumber $2 to a buck

Looks like Sega has now joined in on xmas fun, so with EA, looks like the holiday sales have begun! Anyone recommend this game? On the fence on this one.

This game is great, I picked it up for free a couple months ago. AFTER I finished the game I had to send the devs a little IAP as a thank you. Getting 4 stars on every level will ruin you.

I was hoping to get some information on this title, too. Can you explain the game generally?

From what I can tell, it's a game that has mechanics similar to Fruit Ninja (swipe to slice), but with a lot more of a focus on precision and timing, rather than just hacking things to bits as fast as you can.

How did you get it for free it has only been on sale for $.99 before. Promo code maybe? I've had this on my appshopper wish list since it came out

Hmm, you're right. Checking app shopper shows that the game hasn't been free before, only 69p. Could have sworn I got it for free, which is why I felt extra compelled to purchase an IAP which I don't don't normally do. Definitely was not a promo code. Anyhoo, I must be mistaken.

Regardless, the game is super fun and so worth 69p/99c.

Absolutely, precision and timing are key. If you go nuts, hacking any which way, you'll fail. The later stages are HARD, and during the game you'll be able to equip beards that make the game harder in some way, but increases your score multiplier.

Seriously, this game was close to being in my top 10 of the year, I enjoyed it that much.

I'd like to add that IAP are not needed at all, you hardly notice them. I only bought IAP after I finished the game.
