Thumper's developers describe their game as rhytmic violence, and that's pretty apt. The game plays music while you rocket down a track and have to complete certain actions in order to clear each level. The actions you take in the game play directly into the music that is being played, with some seriously trippy graphics. If you're a fan of games that revolve around music then this is definitely worth some of your time.
