Bumper Stars is a puzzle game where you take control of a morbidly obese beaver and must bounce around different levels collecting fruit. The aim of the game is to collect all fruit in under three shots, while hitting different bumpers to increase your highscore and keep moving.
You control your beaver by dragging a line across your iPhone screen, and then releasing your finger to let him fly. He will bounce off any objects in his path and get more of a boost if he hits a bumper. Bonus points can be earned if all star bumpers are hit and also if you complete the level in under the 3 shots.
The visuals are cartoony and humorous, and there are a number of different in game shop items that change characters, level items and other visual pieces. The sound is good, and players have the option to use their iPod during gameplay as well. The game is single player only, but once logged into your Facebook account, players can check global leaderboards as well as other friend’s scores.
Bumper Stars is an addictive game and worth a look at if you enjoy games like Spikey’s Bounce Around. The levels are always randomly generated and the game rewards replay with a highscore and points use to purchase different shop items. If you don’t have a Facebook account, the gameplay might not be as rewarding as you won’t be able to customise the game, but accounts are easy to get. But if you love puzzle games and fun custom options then Bumper Stars is a great title and worth a look at.

Bumper Stars is a completely unique mash-up of pool, pinball, and bumping beavers that takes only seconds to learn, but offers untold hours of fun. Extended play has been shown to lull players into a trance-like state and dramatically increase their ability to calculate complex trigonometric angles.
