Bumps is a casual puzzle game that was created by Utopian Games. The games was released in late April 2009 on PC. Versions for iPhone and iPad were later released.

Gameplay[edit]

Bumps is a physics-based game that revolves around placing small creatures called "bumps" around a level, then pressing play to let the physics let them go free and collect keys to release the other bumps trapped in the level. The bumps are also able to collect power-ups and interact with certain dynamic physics objects to complete each levels objective of freeing the other bumps.

There are 99 levels in the PC version, 54 in the iPhone version, and 72 in the iPad version.[3][2][4] When players complete each level they are awarded a bronze, silver, or gold medal depending on how many attempts it took them to beat the level.

Reception[edit]

The game received 3 out of 5 stars from GamesRadar, which said that "World of Goo’s first bona-fide challenger comes up short in both the puzzling and the personality departments." Gamezebo writer David Stone rated the PC version 3.5 out of 5 stars,[5] but gave the iPhone version 4 stars.[4]
