In this real-time strategy game, you command a team of elite firefighting helicopters, ground units and water bombers as they battle raging wildfires around the world. Your firefighters will leap into action against fires ranging from grass fires to town-threatening infernos. And the action continues as your team must battle fires in Central Park, the Everglades and even a volcano!
- "Awesome. This is definitely the best firefighting game I have ever played..."
- "Best fire game out there. As a wildland fire fighter I really appreciate this game..."
- "An extremely exciting new RTS. This is a genius idea for a game. It's been very fun to play..."
- "Best firefighter game ever! Challenging and addicting! Fun as a game, but can be used as a training/refresher tool too."
To acknowledge the incredible service of real world firefighters, Redblox Games has committed to donating 5% of all sales from Fire Jumpers to Firefighters 1st, a charity that supports volunteer fire services. And for the following special events, that amount will rise to 10% of sales:
- Global Wildfire Awareness Week (Southern Hemisphere)
- Fire Prevention Week
- Global Wildfire Awareness Week (Northern Hemisphere)
- Includes a sophisticated real-time fire simulation that burns differently each time - depending on the terrain and wind conditions.
- Helicopters can transport firefighting ground units, rescue civilians and make water drops.
- Firefighter hose teams connect to water sources and provide a zone of fire suppression. The effectiveness of the fire suppression will depend on the type of terrain. If the hose burns, the team must reconnect to a new water source.
- Firefighter cut teams create fire breaks. The effectiveness of the fire breaks will depend on the direction and strength of the wind.
- The water bomber makes water drops along paths that you specify.
- Explosives such as fuel tanks present a special danger to firefighting teams.
- Real locations from around the world including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Spain, China, Australia (and more to come).
- A magnifier shows you what's under your finger for more accurate control.
