Thumper is an intense rhythm action game with a very high difficulty. With simple but addictive gameplay, interesting visuals, haunting audio, 9 levels and a 'PLAY+' mode, there is a lot of content here to enjoy and replay to get higher scores. At just £15.99, this is an easy game to recommend.
THE GOOD
- Gameplay is fun and easy to get absorbed in - I'd find my mind blank, entirely focused on my beetle's avatar traversing through the many stages of each level. It's easy to play for ages without even realising it.
- The visuals and audio are beautiful at times, creating a haunting atmosphere whilst also keeping you pumped up. Sound effects also fit in well.
- Each of the 9 levels is different enough from the rest. With new mechanics consistently introduced, and the difficulty creeping up, I didn't have time to get bored.
- HD Rumble feels great - when turning a a corner I would feel a powerful vibration in my respective hand. This was even more impressive when using headphones, as the audio would bounce into my right ear as my right hand felt a jolt.
- The way the game grades you seems fair. Personally, I went for the highest available, 'S', on every stage of every level. I felt this added to my enjoyment, continually replaying stages until I could do them perfectly. I enjoyed this trial and error aspect, as it made me feel as though I'd made a bit of progress each time I got slightly further. It also made finally getting the prestigious 'S' all the more satisfying. However, if you choose to do so, you could set your sights a little lower to alleviate some of the frustration of having to do the same stage over and over again.
- The ending is superb, dramatically revamping the game in a way I won't spoil here - I only wish we could have seen more of this new mechanic and the particularly gorgeous music and style found here. This is something
- As mentioned in the intro, the 'PLAY+' mode adds a lot of longevity. You replay all 9 levels, but with just one life per level, no checkpoints, increased speed, and the chance to get even higher scores with a new rank and score multiplier.
THE BAD
- I can't think of anything I could say was objectively bad.
THE BORING
- Although the music is interesting and definitely has moments of greatness, it could have done with some variety. I found myself getting bored with it towards the latter half of the game. The ending proved that Drool, the team behind the game, had it in them to produce more than what we primarily heard. I wish they could have taken more risks like the one they took here. The same could be said with the visuals, but to a lesser extent. I certainly never found them boring, but a little diversity could've helped - again, I blame this on the ending. It left me with a taste for more, wishing that the entire game could have been as diverse. As this is from a team of just two people, it's easily forgivable, and is more of a subjective thing. I felt I had to include this point, but bear in mind that you may think I'm completely wrong.
- Although this is more of a nitpick, I think it's worth mentioning that the boss design could also have been more diverse. A lot of them look almost identical, with just a couple of new details added. Again, as this is from a two-man team, it really isn't important.
CONCLUSION
Thumper is a must buy if you're up for a challenge. Having already spent 15 hours with it, and barely touching 'PLAY+' (which is very hard, maybe too hard for me), I can definitely recommend this game. At just £15.99, this deserves your time and money. The only thing keeping me from giving a 10 is the lack of audiovisual diversity, something that many might not even have a problem with. Buy this game.
