Awesome, Addicting, Optional Ads!!!!

This game is a very fun, and complex game. With an upgrade system you can customize your animal army any way you see fit. Levels are repetitive but the next level is just as fun as the last.

The best part is that ads are OPTIONAL!!! The game rewards you at the end of each level and has a choice to double your rewards with ads, its definitely not necessary but well worth the 30 seconds. It is NOT a pay to win, i have struggled in the later levels but after adjusting my army i was able to overcome any challenge brought forth by even the hardest of battles. This gives a great sense of accomplishment and teaches you how to better strategize for different waves of enemies in the different levels. Once you overcome these obstacles it is well worth the time involved for that victory feeling achievement. Again ads do help you progress through the game a great deal but are absolutely not necessary.

I would fully recommend this game to anyone that likes defense games, strategy games, rpg style upgrade systems, action games, and everything in between.

5 OUT OF 5!!!!

Not Surprised ,

Enjoy this app but it’s broken with iOS 11.2.2

This app is fun to play and I enjoy the animals defending their home from the loggers.

However, with the latest iOS which I just installed the tractor trailer which is supposed to be defeated at the end drives through all the trees and the level can’t be won.

This has happened with previous iOS updates but not as bad as it is now. The developer wasn’t updating the app for a long time. Then there was an app update in Oct 2017 that made it playable again. Please update the software so it’s playable.

Good game, lot of problems

Lumberwhack is one of my favorite games to play to pass time... when it works. There’s a list of problems that need to be attended to. To list a few,

1. The lumber truck occasionally drives through all the trees and ignores the animals early in the game and the game can’t be beaten. Nothing is more irritating than using items and having a good round be ruined by this awful glitch.

2. The lion won’t roar... a main character in the game that provides a lot of structure to the army doesn’t complete his function...

3. Newest and most annoying one since the October 2017 update, I’ve completed all the acorns up to the point where I’m at... in order to pass to the next world, you need a certain amount of acorns, and it says I’m 60 short and another action is to spend 80 acorns, which are already expensive and hard to come across. Cmon.

Just lost a 5-star review, please fix these problems :)
