Lumbearjack is an awesome adventure game with a puzzle element. You play as a bear named Jack. You will wake up while the forest is being destroyed by humans. You’ll get up and go on an adventure to destroy all those constructions humans made that are destroying the forest and you’ll show the humans that they live happier while doing so.
There are 20 levels and at each level you start with a normal axe which can destroy small things, but by destroying items you get rumble and when you have enough you can recycle that rumble to upgrade your axe and destroy bigger things. Some levels also have gimmicky features, like playing golf with bombs to destroy cages or using a wrecking ball to destroy buildings.
The game is short with 20 levels but is an amazing game. I think it has the right length for this type of game. You’ll play through it while the mechanism doesn’t become boring and at the end, you feel like you would enjoy a bit more, but that feeling is so much better than a game that overstays its welcome.
Lumbearjack has no missable achievements. Most of them you’ll unlock by playing through the game and completing all 3 objectives (Clear level, find bear trap and slap all humans) on each level. On a few levels, you can unlock another achievement by doing something specific on that level. I would recommend first playing through the game without bothering to look up the achievements and afterward, check which ones you’re missing and go back to them. The game makes it really easy to go back to earlier levels with a level selection menu, on which you can also see if you have done all 3 level objectives.
