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 juxtaposition of the monsters and the butterflies being pulled off perfectly to create a musical game that will be loved by young and old alike.
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.

cries out for a touch screen
this game's visuals and music are pretty much top notch, even better if you remember madballs. that said, it requires a lot of precision, and pressing the number buttons on my keyboard in time with the complex rhythms is taxing, and not necessarily in a good way. i imagine the iphone/ipad versions, where you tap the drums on screen directly, plays much more intuitively. if you have an idevice, I'd aver purchasing it that way.
Not a good time :-(
I didn't like this game at all. Perhaps it's just me but pressing keys 1-5 to match the rhytm of the Thumpies didn't do anything for me except cause my arms to cramp. On the positive side, the music that accompanies each stage is quite unique and does become more complex as you advance resulting in a unique melody. Your coordination skills need to be top notch to do well in this game.
Really fun game
Really fun for a quick game, a bit to short, I wish there were more levels. Still a very fun game and one of the few that transition to mac well.
