In Brief:
Chewing Gum Tests is a minimalistic 2D side scrolling physics-based puzzle platformer.

To move your lump of chewing gum press either the Left (LMB) or Right (RMB) Mouse Button to throw it to that spot. The LMB gives a strong jump, the RMB a weak jump. To aim use your mouse pointer to direct where you wish the lump to go then release the mouse button. A hashed line will appear showing you where the gum will move.

Watch out for obstacles and moving object/mechanisms. Moving gears can be used as platforms to launch the gum from. Collect the stars and get to the end of the level. To proceed to the next level, of which there are fifteen. Each level has a rating of one, two or three stars. Collect all the stars to get a three-star rating. Press the red button to move to the next level. As you progress through the levels they become much harder to beat.

You can see a video of game play HERE.

The game will be available on Steam sometime soon HERE.

Conclusion:
Initially I though the star rating was related to how long it took to complete a level; however, as mentioned above it turned out it was just the stars you managed to hit that gave the star rating. One a level is unlocked you can replay it any time. When returning to the game if you select play it will always start you from level one. To continue where you left off select the level button.

I didn't find much difference between the LMB and RMB lengths of throw.

This reminds me a little of a platform game I used to play a lot called Wik and The Fable of Souls where Wik, the protagonist, used his extendible tongue to swing from point to point. That game despite its age (around 15 years old) was graphically more beautifully rendered than today's game.
Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 63 antimalware engines. You can see the installed games scan HERE.

This is probably one of the weirdest game names I've seen and I still fail to see with what it has to do with chewing gum :) The game poses lots of challenges for those who may not be into active , real time logic to get across from one platform to the other.

It takes lots of work in order to find the right approach to get from one platform to the other. There were times I thought I was going to get stuck in the wall but in the end the game corrected the position of the dot and there I was dropped back to the floor.

I do like certain kinds of games of this genre but this one is just not for me. However if you're looking for more intricate types of puzzles and so forth , check out the game Trine, you work with a lot of elements in game just to progress etc.

It appears to be on sale as well: https://store.steampowered.com/app/35700/Trine_Enchanted_Edition/

Thanks Giveaway of the Day for letting us try this indie game.

Are you sure it's not malicious? I installed the game and Falcoware links popped up on my desktop!

AleX,

Those are shortcuts to Falcoware, but are not malicious. Just delete then.
