‘Timberman’ is the next super addictive 8-bit Android game [VIDEO]



We live in a strange time where the past plays a huge part in the world around us. Old TV shows gets turned into movies, old movies get rebooted, people dress like it’s 1985, and 8-bit design is making a comeback in gaming. Indie developers especially love to use 8-bit design, and we have to say we love it too. Timberman is the latest game to capture us with retro graphics, and keep us playing with insanely fun gameplay.

First of all, this game looks great. The 8-bit design is deployed perfectly in the way it looks and sounds. It’s retro and modern at the same time. You play as a burly lumberjack (or Jill) at the bottom of a massively tall tree. The goal is to chop down as much tree as possible while avoiding branches and keeping your energy bar filled. Simple the left or right side of the tree to chop. It’s very easy, but just difficult enough to be addictive.

Beyond the actual gameplay there are different characters you can unlock. They are unlocked by reaching certain checkpoints in the game. In my testing I didn’t notice any difference between the characters other than their clothing. Timberman has Google Play integration so you can earn achievements and compare scores with friends. The game is free to download with banner ads and random pop-ups, but they can be removed for $0.99. If you’re looking for a new addictive game to play, Timberman is an excellent choice.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.
