Rhythm games are one of my oddest weaknesses, but most are so sun-drenched in pop music I tend to avoid them entirely. Occasionally, something like Rhythm Heaven or even Sound Shapes, comes around, but it’s rare. Thankfully, Thumper is an excellent addition to that list. The music is perhaps the only time I can think to use the word, “banging,” as it throttles ahead full-speed, like a train to hell, and you press the corresponding buttons to keep that train moving forward. Best experienced with headphones.
