Rhythmic action game Thumper: Pocket Edition is now available on Apple Arcade
Apple Arcade released Thumper: Pocket Edition from game studio Drool on Friday. In the game, you play as a space beetle that ventures into the void and battles with an evil giant’s head. Win boss fights over nine levels matching the beat of the music.
Thumper: Pocket Edition immediately immerses you in fast-paced gameplay. The game includes a tutorial to teach you the musical rhythm of the level, as well as back and forth movements to turn. It took me a second to get the rhythm under control, but when I finally pulled off a combination or did well at a level, it was so satisfying. The app store description recommends using headphones for the best audio experience.
If you are a fan of Guitar Hero, Dance Dance Revolution, Beat Saber or Tetris Beat, Thumper: Pocket Edition is definitely worth a try.
You can also check out Thumper: Pocket Edition without an Apple Arcade subscription, but the download will cost you $ 5.
