Rhythm games are fun right? People like furry creatures right? Well what if there was a game that combined them? Thumpies by Big Blue Bubble is a game where you tap drums or mushrooms and furry heads bounce on them in order to fill a score meter, and eventually create a song.
Control consists of tapping the appropriate drum when a Thumpy hits it. If you continue to be accurate in your timing, the Thumpy will become electric and your score will double, completing the current track much faster. During the game there are butterflies that float around. If you tap on them and collect them before the Thumpies gobble them up, you can unlock much more bizarre Thumpies.
And boy are the Thumpies bizarre. If they are meant to be cute, the mark was missed, as they are more horrifying than anything. That being said, they are visually interesting and are good for a chuckle as they're bouncing around. The sound is varied and high quality, which is really a must in any rhythm game. There is only the main mode, but with plenty of levels, unlockables and difficulties, you should be kept busy.
Thumpies is a fresh breath of air in the rhythm genre, that should appeal to all ages. Building a song track by track is fun, and the varied and strange Thumpies keep the game visually interesting. Thumpies is Definitely worth a look.

Toucharcade - Thumpies is an amazingly creative game, and thanks to the multiple difficulty levels should be approachable enough for kids and challenging enough for adults. People are leaving absolutely glowing reviews of the game, and I find myself in agreement with all of them.

AppSpy - Thumpies is a fresh breath of air in the rhythm genre, that should appeal to all ages.The game is in a league of is own.
Thumpies is a unique rhythm based music game for players of all ages. By correctly matching the beat of bouncing Thumpies, the player progresses through a song. If the player hits the targets in time, their Thump’o’meter slowly rises, but if the player misses or hits out of time, the meter falls. Unlike typical rhythm based games, Thumpies uses a mechanic of bouncing in time instead of just a series of notes. One way to describe Thumpies is a rhythm game crossed with juggling.
The quirky art design of Thumpies is accompanied by a unique musical score composed by award winning industry veteran David Kerr. The music was crafted with game play in mind giving the player a harmonizing experience.
Players also have the chance to unlock progressively bizarre Thumpies by collecting different colored butterflies, that’s if the hungry Thumpies don’t eat them up on you first.
Thumpies is a game that will keep people of all ages hooked with its addictive, quirky and stylistic gameplay.
