JumpStart Adventure Challenge is a game that was initially released in 2000. It was included as a bonus disc in the Deluxe 2-CD set releases of JumpStart Adventures 3rd Grade: Mystery Mountain, JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade: Sapphire Falls (instead of Haunted Island), JumpStart Adventures 5th Grade: Jo Hammet, Kid Detective, and JumpStart Adventures 6th Grade: Mission Earthquest. It focuses on sports, and unusually for a JumpStart game, most of the activities have no educational value.

In 2003, JumpStart Adventure Challenge was re-released with the JumpStart Advanced series. The third grade version was re-released with JumpStart Advanced 3rd Grade as Far Out Field Trips, the fourth grade version was re-released with JumpStart Advanced 4th Grade as Ultimate Field Trips, and the fifth grade version was re-released with JumpStart Advanced 5th & 6th Grade as Extreme Field Trips.

Originally, the game only had four activities. Four more could be downloaded from the Internet during the game's initial release period. In the Advanced series releases, all eight activities are included.

JumpStart Around the World is essentially the preschool-2nd grade equivalent of Jumpstart Adventure Challenge.

Gameplay

Ac map

The map of Adventure World

In the game, the player engages in various sports events in Adventure World. Each sports event has its own activity. There are three skill levels for each activity: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. The player must choose their skill level at the beginning of each activity. The skill level will determine the number of obstacles, bonus objects, and power-ups available, as well as the playing speed. Each activity has a timer and a score feature, and the goal is to complete the event and obtain as many points as possible before the timer runs out. The player must spend tickets each time they engage in an event. If the player runs out of tickets, they must go to the arcade to retrieve more.

As the player wins events, they collect design elements for their magazine. The magazine has two pages for each event, and there are four design elements for each page. The design elements are:

  • Dynamic Headlines
  • Fun Facts, Articles and Advertisements
  • Action Packed Photos
  • Rockin' Song and Sound Files

After the player has collected all four design elements for a page, they earn a set of stickers for that page.
