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.

REVIEWS:
- "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."

DONATIONS:
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)

FEATURES:
- 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.

FireJumpers 1.1.6

New version of the game 1.1.6 has been released for both Android and iOS, including a Universal App version. Significantly optimized to run faster on slower devices. New magnifier helps see what's under your finger! Improved icons to help identify units and their actions, and much more!

Next version we're looking to add music, randomized fire/wind for existing levels completed with 3 stars, potentially add a unit menu to help with certain actions as well as handling overlapping units. New terrain types, like the "Must-Not-Burn-Or-Game-Over" terrain type (for very special buildings). Looking into Bull Dozer unit and Fire Retardant Air Bomber. Many new elements we're trying to build and appreciate everyone's support so far!

So check it out, like us on Facebook, share your thoughts, even contribute by finding cool Google Map locations to burn down

I have played this on PC (and love it) because it seems not to be available US market for iOS. Is there a reason it isn't in the US iOS market or is it just my device not finding it. I feel like it should be available here partially because many of the maps are in the US.

Unfortunately, we had to remove it from the App Store in all countries until we figure out why certain levels seem to lock up the game. :/ The second unfortunate part is that we won't be able to get it to the App Store for some time as we're currently working on the FireJumpers Pro version. It's redesigned as a training simulator for actual wildfire fighting agencies, which our Canadian government is currently using to training their Air Attack Officer.

Long story short, it'll be a while before I'll be able to get to it. The good news is, once I do update it, it'll have the new an improved game engine which I've optimized drastically, with improved waterbomber unit, and potentially new units too. So much I want to accomplish, so little time!

You should follow us on Facebook for the latest news. We'll be releasing a beta version of the Pro soon and we need beta testers. It'll be cooperative multiplayer, up to 45 simultaneous players. (https://www.facebook.com/FireJumpers)

Hmmm... Seems this is live again... But it says its a version from April 2. I'm guessing this isn't the newer enhanced version?

No, it's not the enhanced version.

I put FireJumpers live again over the weekend temporarily as a request by some users who wanted a copy. Today, my colleague and I decided to put it back as the same version, but with a note stating how to unlock all levels as a temporary solution. I'll keep it there for a while, see what happens, unless I start getting a bunch of 1 stars again.
