  • Movement Controls no longer Work on iPad Pro 10.5

    By Dubs1
    *the devs need to fix the controls that allow you to turn right/left with beetle on iPad Pro 10.5* This includes just basic swiping left/right and holding down and then moving your finger right/left in one motion. The controls used to work perfectly, as the movement was fluid, fast, smooth and just ultra responsive. But since the recent update, these controls have been broken as you can no longer even swipe left/right to bank off a wall (you will now crash every time). This control glitch only seems to be effecting the iPad Pro 10.5 (as far as I know), as my Itouch 6 and iPad Pro 9.7 controls ALL work as fine as they did before the update. And I have already tried uninstalling, etc. and my device is basically new with no damage and all other games work properly. This is clearly a Thumper game issue, so please if you also own a iPad Pro 10.5 and are having these issues: contact the devs immediately. We must get this fixed as the game is unplayable like this.
  • Wow!

    By Popingf
    Honestly, I only gave great things to say about this game! Its a perfect symbiosis of audio, visual, and engaging play. Its fun to get lost in and show off to your friends! It also is smooth to play with little problems with gameplay, if any at all! As a cynic of games this one is is a must!
  • iPhone X controls buggy

    By Cappslocke
    Developer replied and improved controls. I’m very happy about that and have updated my review. Thanks! The graphics on this game are well made and I really want to enjoy it, but I’m consistently encountering control bugs. For example, level 1-10 & 11 have a few segments where you tap (jump over a spotlight), hold (to pass through several bars), then swipe left/right (to turn left/right.) The jump & hold work great, but the game often misinterprets the swipe as a continued hold and the player crashes into the turn. At first I just assumed it was me, but after continued play and handing to friends to try, we’re finding that this is more often a misinterpreted gesture than a player timing issue. I’m hoping updates can improve gesture detection for turns immediately following holds.
  • Best Game on iOS

    By Ktana8
    Amazing, beautiful game...probably the best on iOS yet (and this is a huge compliment, especially coming just after the release of ‘Inside’ on iOS this month). Thumper is hard to describe, so I’ll just recommend people download it ASAP. It will leave you breathless. UPDATE: Changed to 5-Star rating now that the developers have added an alternative to the tilt controls in Levels 4+. These developers rock! Probably the most responsive on the game App Store!
  • Heart-wrenching experience

    By Cor3gor3
    This game is an all out hallucination with great bass in the audio, but both audio and visual quality can be better
  • PC Version is a Masterpiece

    By JordanSneed
    This is one of my favorite games that has come out in a while on PC. The mobile version is soooo awesome, but only until the portion of the game where tilt controls come into play. On one hand I just don’t find the tilt mechanics to be fun. On the other, they don’t seem very dialed in. Could I practice a little more and get it down? Probably. But I just don’t want to. I know the team will probably do something about this (as this is pretty much a unanimous sentiment in the reviews), so I’ll update to 5 star if we get an option other than tilt.
  • So happy this game exists

    By Fluick
    I saw a Youtuber playing this game a year or so ago and I was devastated to find out I didn't own a device that it would run on. Just recently, I found it on here, the app store, and I preordered it without hesitation. I'm not very good at it, but I love the style, the vibe, and the pulse of this game. It would be cool to see a level creator, but I'm definitely happy with the game as it is now.
  • Good but a few flaws

    By Liamum03
    This game is visually stunning but it can get frustrating especially with tilt controls. You can’t really control exactly where your beetle changes lanes to and so it makes it hard to get boss fights done. I’m glad that most of the flying parts are either optional or easy because it’s extremely hard to fly and pound in quick succession. Sometimes turning is not responsive and it makes it hard to slide on walls in quick succession as well. Overall it’s an awesome game with great music, but some major mechanical flaws hold it back.
  • Awesome unique rhythmic game.

    By nitodev
    Hey developer, love your game, the difficulty is hard enough for a lot of play time. One thing you need to fix! I’m having a very frustrating time with the control mechanic. Specifically on the hold down and swiping up. When I want to swipe up, it registers as holding down and gets rekt on those spiky obstacles. Please fix, thanks.
  • Worth the $

    This is the first game in my life that i don’t get mad when losing. Really amazing effects and soundtracks.
