Gum Beat purports to be about a teenage girl who stands up against the oppressive government. In the game, bubble gum is illegal, which is seen through many postings plastered across the city. So, naturally, your character chews bubble gum, which is used to attract followers, inspire happiness in others and derail police efforts. Even with this impressive set-up, the game falls flat. There isn't a heck of a lot of learning. It feels like a poor man's Legend of Zelda (minus the puzzles, adventure and fun). I would not recommend this game to anyone, unless as a practical joke.
