Pre-orders are currently propagating according to where you live, but this should be out in the States approximately 6 hours from now.

Picked Thumper up on Switch AFTER pre-ordering on iOS and I must say, I'm still absolutely floored by it. It seriously is the first rhythm game I've ever played that tries to do something different with the genre, and it does it in spades. It's dark, menacing and can be unforgivably fast at times. I went from "Oh hey, this looks cool...but I have no idea what it's supposed to be" to "OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING!!11!!" in mere seconds.

So...it's great on Switch, right? How is it on iOS? Well, my pre-order kicked in a couple of hours ago and I've only played a few minutes to be completely honest, but absolutely nothing's been lost in translation. Nothing at all. Sheer perfection at literally a quarter of the price, a fraction of the download size and with incredible portrait mode support. Nothing else to say.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Have it on PS4 and love it. Anxious to see how the touch controls work.

Just : WOW

this is absolutely amazing: controlls: until now: only tapping and swiping: are spot on. it sounds easy: but it is really unforgiving: two false taps or swipes and you have to start again: its a really fast game with outstanding graphic effects: Im already addicted: im just trying to beat level one : endboss: you really have to learn the track by heart and within the rhythm! THIS is the rhythmgame i was always looking for: AND it is HEAVEN

Does it integrate the Taptic engine like the Switch version uses HD Rumble?
