Drool‘s Thumper graced or topped a lot of GOTY list at the end of last year. It’s been on my to-play list too, ever since I saw… To be honest, I don’t actually know much about Thumper. All I know for certain is that it’s a rhythm game of sorts, and all I’ve seen is some kind of beetle thing skating on a space rail. I’m given to understand it’s scary? What little I read about it (constant praise) convinced me to play it for review, which means I’ve mostly steered clear of other perspectives. So if you, like me, don’t actually know what the hub-bub is regarding this game, you’re in luck: we’re about to embark on this journey of discovery together.
