Description: Timberman, the devilishly addictive retro-style arcade video game goes 3D and beyond. It’s now available in VR! Take a deep dive into a game that is easy to learn but not-so-easy to master. Discover whole heaps of fun in a brand new type of reality – a virtual reality!

Review: To give its full title ‘Timberman VR – grab an axe, chop trees, beat records!’ is a pretty simple wood chopping game in which you have to chop bits of a tree down as fast as you can. Some need the branches chopped off, squirrels and nests removed and some require certain motions to get rid of them. While the game never really reaches crazy speeds it does get quite challenging at times with you having to deal with more than one section at a time.

With its simple graphics and even simpler gameplay there really isn’t a lot to hate on here. Sure, it gets repetitive rather quickly, but it is the challenge of doing better and faster that will keep you coming back to the game. For just £5.79 ($7.99) this is well worth a look for those of us seeking something a little different to all the shooters out there.
