Zumba is a Improvement game. Self improvement games tap into the popular trend in exercise, workouts and therapy. Experiences as diverse as Brain Training on Nintendo DS and Wii-Fit on the Nintendo Wii have popularised the idea that games can be about more than just having fun - they can improve your brain, body and even mental outlook on life.
Zumba can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

I'm always amenable to the idea of incorporating odysseys of joy and health into my life. I probably have a few preconceptions about how I might acquire those things, but I'm also open to new possibilities: if a registered, trade-marked, worldwide fitness party can help out, I'll give it a try.
