Thumper: Pocket Edition is a nosebleed-fast rhythm action game with psychedelic visuals and the sort of migraine-inducing soundtrack that’s going to put a crazy grin on your face. And right now you can pick the game up for less than a buck.
You’re playing as a space beetle, swerving down glittering tracks and fighting oncoming enemies. There are boss battles, there’s a giant head, there’s a distinct lack of logical sense and you can play the whole thing with one hand.
This mobile version of the game has been twisted and tweaked to make sure it works perfectly on phones and tablets. And it really does, ticking all of the right boxes at all of the right times.
Everything about Thumper is a little bit extra. It’s the sort of game that’s going to have you on the edge of your seat, sweat drenched and frantic and enjoying every second.
