Gameplay Basics

At the beginning of the game, the player creates an avatar, called a Jumpee, which they can customize. Players can edit their Jumpeez' hair, eyes, mouth, skin color, clothing, and accessories. Then the player must choose a username with JumpStart's "Name Randomizer". The Name Randomizer allows players to choose words to create a safe yet unique name.

The Jumpee can be moved around the screeen with the arrow keys, or in some cases, the mouse. The player moves their Jumpee around to explore and go to different locations.

As the player explores the JumpStart world, they can meet different characters and play a variety of activities. The player can also take on missions assigned to them. Completing missions earns the player JumpStars and coins. The player moves up in rank by earning JumpStars. The player can also earn coins by playing activities or completing missions, which can then be used to make purchases.
