Simogo’s Bumpy Road [$2.99] is one of the most inventive, intuitive, and refined experiences on touch devices, so we’re pretty stoked to hear this bit of news: against the odds, the game has hit 100,000 downloads. This is a pretty big deal for the independent outfit, which doesn’t have the same name recognition as, say, a Firemint and is, obviously, competing against tons and tons of other independent studios for the mass market’s dollar.

In more practical news for those of you who aren’t interested in milestones, Bumpy Road will go on sale soon thanks to this accomplishment. Starting this Wednesday and rolling until late this Thursday, you’ll be able to grab the game for $.99 instead of the usual $2.99.

You can read our review of Bumpy Road at this handy-dandy link. Spoiler: we liked it. Oh, and just as a side-note here, we’re in the process of trying to grab an interview with Simogo for another bonus episode of our podcast. As soon as we can, we’ll get that out to you.

    That is the first Phone game-trailer where the music seems like it was meant for the game. Really cute!  Great marketing especially for an independent group.

    Its nice to see a good indie game get some TA spotlight. Its even better due to the fact that the game deserves it, unlike some games I know *cough*cough*Angry Birds*cough*.
