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 - ..the 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.

Excellent rhythm game. Satisfyingly difficult yet forgiving
The new update has improved even more on this winning formula...
This game is a pleasant surprise. I am enjoying the quirky graphics, mut more than anything the way it layers on the musical components. I really likes how it reveals the song to you as you master the rhythm.
I see how it could be difficult to people new to this kind of game, especially since you are discovering what the sounds would be by playing, and don't have the benefit of trying to match a song that you can hear from the beginning and already know. But I personally find it refreshing.
This is a great effort! And yes, it works perfectly on my 1G touch (3.1.3)
Very challenging with good, fun music. The principle is super simple but as you unlock levels it gets more and more difficult to pick up (which keeps it interesting!). I love the score comparison at the end of each level so I can keep trying to beat my best score. I got this for free thru Openfeint but it's absolutely worth the 99¢!
Original beats with bouncing heads?
This looks incredibly bizarre - and it is, that's not a bad thing! Certainly the most unique music game on the store, the bouncing heads are incredibly entertaining to follow. Having a sense of rhythm helps a lot, though, and if you hate music this game's not for you.
