Parents need to know that Gun Jam is an upcoming first person shooter for Windows PCs. The game takes place in a futuristic city where every single activity is governed by a constant rhythmic beat driven by electronic dance music, or EDM. While the beat seems to provide structure to the citizens, it also serves to keep them all in line. Players take on the role of a hero that chooses to break free of this musical rapture by picking up a couple of weapons and blasting their way free through each area of the city. Initially, this might seem like a traditional shooter, because you'll strafe, run, and shoot through enemy soldiers, robots, drones, and more that spawn into each section of the map. But where Gun Jam stands out is the fact that to have success, you'll need to time your actions to a rhythm meter that scrolls from the bottom of the screen to an indicator just below your weapon's crosshair. Right-clicking on the beat provides you a speed boost to accelerate your movements in any direction you wish, while left clicking lets you fire on the down beat. Occasionally, a red icon will show up, allowing you to fire a rocket from a rocket launcher, or a more rapid rail gun blast if the icon is blue. Fortunately, players don't have to manually switch weapons because the game does it for you, allowing you to focus on moving and shooting on the beat. That may seem intimidating at first, but it's incredibly easy to hop in and tap your fingers, and your actions, to the pounding rhythm. Also, one of the other clever features of Gun Jam is the fact that you're not forced to constantly try to hit the beats every single time. You'll want to tap in time to maximize your bonuses, cause more damage or accelerate faster, but it's very easy to pick the beat back up if you let it go. In fact, there are some moments where it's better to drop your focus on the beat, take your time to get your bearings, and pick it up when you're ready to advance. There will be more than an hour's worth of original EDM tracks to drive the action, and the developers are planning on adding challenges, a story mode to explore as well as an arcade mode to simply play through each track. While players will blast enemies, there's no blood or gore shown. Otherwise, there's no inappropriate content to be found.
