Thumpies XL

London, Ontario (April 5, 2010)– Big Blue Bubble Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Thumpies XL for the iPad.

What could be better than Thumpies on your iPhone? How about the larger than life Thumpies XL for the iPad!

In this new version, all the graphics have been updated to higher resolutions specifically for the iPad. You won’t want to miss out on the fun and neither will your friends, who can now play with you with a new multiplayer mode! Work together to beat the levels and then check out the scores to see who came out ahead.

Thumpies XL is a unique rhythm-based music game for players of all ages. By correctly matching the beat of bouncing Thumpies the player progresses through a song. Unlike typical rhythm based games, Thumpies XL uses a mechanic of bouncing in time instead of just a series of notes. Who knew juggling furry creatures could be so much fun?

The quirky art design of Thumpies XL is accompanied by a unique musical score composed by award winning, industry veteran David Kerr. The music was crafted with game play in mind, giving the player a harmonizing experience.
