History

One of the goals with Lumberwhack has been to combine the best elements from Side-scrolling and Action-Defense games into an own unique experience. It has also been important to make it fun and challenging for both casual and hardcore gamers. Lumberwhack: Defend the Wild was first released on iTunes App Store the 8th August and was featured by Apple as 'New and Noteworthy' and later also featured as a 'sure fire-winner in tower defense games' in several countries. It reached No 1 in free strategy games in Russia and top ten in other major countries during December 2013. Several updates with improvements and additional content have been added since the initial release and they are now all included in the Android version. Lumberwhack for Android was pre-released exclusively on Samsung Apps the 28th January through Chillingo’s and Samsung’s 100% Indie initiative (www.100percentindie.com) and became available on Google Play and Amazon the 8th February.
