You may see Timberman Vs. on deep discount and dream of a quick and easy platinum trophy however this once mobile exclusive game now ported to console and PC is anything but. That's not to say you won't enjoy it or that it's impossible to platinum. The game's simple premise is easy to pick up and play, while taking lots of patience to learn the rhythm to make it far in the endless modes. Once you do get the hang of it, there will be a massive, repetitive grind to earn enough XP to unlock all the characters.
Step 1: Race Modes
There is some flexibility on which mode you could start so this isn't a map with one path to the Platinum necessarily. The nice thing about Race Mode though is that you are free to make some mistakes while learning the rhythm to the game and won't be frustrated with early exits in Classic or Hero Mode.
Well that was slow...
My father was faster...
I could still do more...
The old fashioned way
Need more coffee!
No time, have more work!
Step 2: Hero Mode
You need to play this mode a total of 10 times. Eight of those on Beginner, once on Average and once on Axe Master difficulty. On one of these playthroughs, be sure to use Fireman Doug once unlocked.
This looks easy...
I should finish this before breakfast...
Here birdy, birdy
Is that a bird?
Why won't they learn
Who you gonna call?
Step 3: Classic Mode
There are several trophies that will require you to play as "xx" character on "xx" world in Classic Mode. You will eventually need to score 100+ with each unlocked character, so be sure to rotate through your characters as you are working on other trophies.

It's me! Timberman!
One thousand and one chops
It is a chopper baby
Step 4: XP, log chops and character unlocks grind
Although you need to chop over 100,000 logs for one particular trophy, the XP required to unlock all the characters will require north of 135,000 logs chopped. The best mode to grind out logs/XP is 5000 log Race Mode, which can be completed in around 13-15 mins each run. As you unlock new characters you may need to move over to Classic/Hero mode in the above steps to unlock character specific trophies and for scoring 100 with each character, which must be done in those respective modes other than Race Mode. After you've unlocked the 68th character and scored 100 with each of them you are finally done.
All the hard work paid off
