Thumper: Pocket Edition is Out Now for Android

The rhythmic violence title cruises onto Android devices after a months-long delay.

Posted By | On 22nd, Feb. 2019

Rhythmic racer/horror Thumper is now available for Android devices. It first released in October 2016 for PC, PS4, and PlayStation VR, before arriving on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in 2017. It subsequently released for iOS in 2018. The Android version was originally supposed to release in Fall 2018, but was seemingly delayed.

Thumper is a trippy experience. You play as a single metallic beetle cruising down a neon highway. Notes will appear on the track and must be hit in sync with the music. Eventually you’ll have to hit turns, vault over obstacles, and deal with other mechanics, along with different boss battles. Be careful though – take two hits and you’re dead.

The Android version touts 60 FPS in portrait and landscape modes. There’s also Play + Mode, which promises “increased challenge and speed”. Those playing with wireless headphones might want to switch them out, as they add “significant audio latency”. To learn more about the game and it’s development, check out GamingBolt’s interview with developer Drool from 2017.
