‘Timberman’ is the Most Frustratingly Addictive Game Since ‘Flappy Bird’

Timberman is the latest game to rise to the top of the Google Play Store and App Store. For those who have missed ‘Flappy Bird,’ you now have a new game to play with a new simple mission: to see how fast you can chop away a tree trunk without getting hit with a branch. Timberman’s gameplay is simple, yet quite addicting. Simply tap on the left or ride side and avoid descending branches as you advance. If you get hit by a branch, you die. Once you figure out how close the branches are to your character, you will be able to improve your score. Depending on your skills, you can unlock additional Timberman characters. While Timberman has been on the App Store since May, it recently started rising to the top of the charts. The game has an ad-free “Golden Edition” for $0.99. Timberman is available on the App Store and Google Play Store.
