Here is what critics are saying about Thumpies:
Appadvice Thumpies truly does reinvent the rhythm based game, and stands above Tap Tap Revenge, Rock Band, Riddim Ribbon, and all others in the category.Every single song is a joy to play and listen to.
Technobrains Thumpies delivers some intense fun that will keep you coming back again and again.
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.
Touchreviews ...he whole game looks great with the just a position of the monsters and the butterflies being pulled off perfectly to create a musical game that will be loved by young and old a like.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Great game for sure. With the free version, I can play a little, but not all to really see what this game is all about. I like it so much not only do I have it on my iPhone, I've actually downloaded the full version again for my Samsung!
Stupid noises that try to make the game humorous.
Small gaps between loops of songs.
Very small touch areas on drums, so sometimes your thumbs don't hit them if you're not looking directly at them (which is hard when you're focusing on many little dudes jumping around).
VERY difficult to recognize the rhythm. Sometimes even after I've passed to the next round (by sheer luck), and after it adds the sounds I was playing to the track, it doesn't sound similar at all! The beats are all off.
App STILL has ads even AFTER you upgrade.
I hope this company is giving out refunds.
The gameplay and style of the game are great and lots of fun but it is held back a little by its less than average UI and excessively annoying ads (even after you pay for it)
