New gameplay mechanics[edit | edit source]
Jungle Adventure offers Sims a brand new vacation world to visit, called Selvadorada. Selvadorada is based on the Latin American region surrounded by vast expanses of jungle, called Belomisia Jungle, that has hidden ruins to explore, treasure cheats to loot, and ancient Omiscan temples with various puzzles and traps that Sims has to endure, in order to get to the grand treasure. Alongside the jungle Selvadorada includes a small settlement, called Puerto Llamante Marketplace, in which Sims can interact with locals and try out new food, raising their Selvadoradian culture skill. Sims can also purchase gear from the markets in order to be more prepared for the jungle.
Inside the jungles of Selvadorada there are many forms of locations for Sims to explore. Many waterfalls and beautiful scenery, dominated with bridges and passageways that can lead to natural pools, quaint lagoons with fishing spots, overgrown gardens and even a plane crash site. These passageways usually require Sims to cut through vines, that will lead them to an adventure in the form of chance cards. The jungle also contains natural dangers such as bees and spiders, that can be annoying to unprepared Sims.
While Sims are exploring the jungle world, they may find ancient artifacts and treasure through treasure chests and dig piles, scattered throughout Belomisia Jungle.
