Thumper brings its signature 'rhythm violence' to Windows 10

After arriving on Xbox One in August, intense rhythm game Thumper is now available for Windows 10. You can grab the game, which is lovingly described as "rhythm violence," is now up for grabs for $19.99 on the Windows Store.

In Thumper, you play as a space beetle racing down a track at blistering speeds. The game combines rhythm action with "brutal physicality" and an atmosphere of dread. From the game's description:

Scream down the endless track and crash through punishing obstacles with simple, airtight controls. Hurtle forward, master new moves, reach overwhelming velocities, and survive epic boss battles. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must go through rhythm hell.

Thumper has received high praise on other platforms (PC, Switch, PS4), so it's good to see another quality title hit the Windows Store. Thumper is also available for Xbox One, having launched in August, if you'd prefer to give it a shot there. Unfortunately, the game isn't an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so you won't get it on both platforms with one purchase. Still, if you're down to give Thumper a go, you can pick it up for $19.99 now.
