10 best tips for playing Thumper


Thumper: How to get a high score!

Thumper: How to get a high score!

Hi guys, I have had a load of questions on how to improve scores on Thumper. I put a little video together for you giving you my top 5 tips but there is so much more, so I have put it all in this description below.

Tips to get a better score in Thumper on the Nintendo Switch, these tips below can be used in any other version of the game by using the action button on your game pad. On the PS4 it would be the X button. Read below to understand the scoring system.

(Based on the Nintendo Switch gamepad)
Tap (A) over the white rectangular thumps to thump
Hold (A) and use LEFT STICK to bank left/right and survive turns
Hold (A) to slide through red bars without damage
Execute looping patterns perfectly to fire the green energy weapon and defeat bosses
Boss patterns loop until you defeat them


Thump while holding UP to jump
Hold down (A) while in the air to increase jump distance (you don't need to hold UP)
Consecutive jumps allow you to fly and maximize your jump distance

Press DOWN while in the air to pound
Pounding thumps sends out a powerful shockwave
From Level 3 on, some bosses have shields that can only be opened by a pound shockwave

From Level 4 on, switch lanes using the LEFT STICK, or bank into barriers using LEFT STICK + (A) when lanes end
From level 5 on, beware of laser sentries that attack if you miss a thump


Blue gems = points
Thump, keep holding (A), and slide through red bars to earn blue gems
Jump into blue rings to earn blue gems
Execute perfect turns by holding (A) and pressing LEFT STICK at the last moment for more points


When completing each sub-level, you will receive score bonuses based on your performance

BLUE GEMS: collect as many as possible to raise your score (see ADVANCED SCORING)
PERFECT TURNS: turn with the stick at the last moment to increase your perfect turn bonus
NO DAMAGE: this bonus is increased for every level you survive with no damage
NO MISSES: this bonus is increased for every level you complete without missing a thump
KILLS: pound whenever you see tentacles ahead for bonus points


Thump perfectly to reach 2X/3X streak multipliers and get more blue gems
Checkpoints contain bonus-thumps, hit them to collect extra blue gems
If you’re damaged, hitting a bonus-thump regains your shell
Pound thumps while in 2X/3X streak to transform upcoming thumps into bonus-thumps
Pound bonus-thumps for even more blue gems!
Hit bosses with the green weapon on the first loop to create a bonus-thump
Pound the green weapon on the first loop and get TWO bonus-thumps
Collect perfect sequences of 6+ red bars and/or blue rings and get more blue gems
Hitting turns normally stops flight, but if you perfect turn during flight you can keep flying through turns


When completing each sub-level, you will receive a Rank (C, B, A, or S) based on your accuracy and skill.

To improve your Rank:

Hit all thumps
Slide into all red bars
Jump into all blue rings
Avoid taking damage
Execute perfect turns
Hit bonus-thumps (see ADVANCED SCORING)
