timber: MAME ROM Information.


Timber (c) 1984 Bally Midway.

An addictive and simple game in which a lumberjack must fell his quota of trees within a strict time limit and under the ever-watchful eye of his boss. Angry forest creatures and falling trees must be avoided as the lumberjack goes about his business.

Extra points can be earned on the bonus stage, in which the player must try and stay on a rotating, floating log for as long as possible.

Released in October 1984.

Licensed to Sega for Japan market.

The main character in the game (as well as the bartender in "Tapper" and the main character in "Domino Man") is based on a Marvin Glass employee named Mike Ferris, who had a similar mustache and bald head, and apparently wore a red T-shirt for much of the time.

The original idea was to do a two-player, simultaneous, competitive game, but this was shelved. A beaver was originally programmed into the game to add some extra competition in cutting down trees but was also removed.
