ZooMumba is a free-to-play zoo simulator game where players take up the responsibility of creating and maintaining their zoo. Players start with an empty piece of land to transform into successful and fun-loving zoo. Players will have a variety of objects and tools at their disposal to transform the empty piece of land into a one of the world's best zoos.
The color palette for ZooMumba is very bright and vibrant as to give off a very fun and family oriented art style. Much of the interactivity in the game revolves around the upkeep of your animals and zoo, making sure that the animals are well taken care of and that your zoo is kept clean. The mouse is the primary control and can be solely used to navigate through the game.
Animals and Habitats
When the player first starts out, Habitats must be laid out for the animals to live in (certain animals can only live in certain Habitats). Once the Habitat has been built, the player can then populate the Habitat with animals to live in. Having a male and female of each animal allows the player to breed and create animal babies.
ZooMumba revolves around two currencies, Pet Pennies and Zoo Dollars. Pet Pennies is the currency that is more readily available as numerous jobs and concession stands can produce Pet Pennies. Zoo Dollars are a bit harder to come by and they are used to purchase special/rare animal and exquisite decorations for the zoo.
Assistants in ZooMumba are used when the player does not have the ability or time to maintain their zoo. Assistants will perform the various tasks in order to keep the zoo running in tip top shape; with Assistants, the player will not have to worry about their animals going hungry or their zoo becoming a mess.
The Bank is where the user can go to purchase Zoo Dollars. As they are a harder currency to come by, players have the option purchasing Zoo Dollars with real currency.
