About Jumpers Heaven
What is Jumpers Heaven?
Jumpers Heaven is a free multiplayer parkour (jump-n-run) mod for the classic first-person shooter Call of Duty 2.
The mod creates a hybrid gametype, which mixes the traditional gameplay of platform games with a first-person view and advanced movement / jumping techniques. In a typical level, you have to jump to and from suspended platforms and get through various obstacles, in order to reach the end. Usually there are various puzzles, which must be solved to proceed forward and successfully complete the level – searching for objects or keys, avoiding traps such as lasers or alarms, passing mazes, and so on. You can also look for secrets, which give you access to bonus areas, after you reach the end. Some levels are built in the typical platform games fashion with many static and moving platforms, obstacles and death traps, while others have realistic design and storyline, cutscenes and effects.
Explore the secrets of Kuwehr – an abandoned medieval castle. While you go around, you’ll find old letters, maps and keys, which would help you find your way forward and unveil the mystery of the castle.

The only first-person platform game ever released is the 2009 “Mirror’s Edge”, which provided nice gameplay, but had no multiplayer mode. This left a serious gap in the market for all of us who love jumping, so we decided to make our own game. Jumpers Heaven aims to create an interesting and engaging first-person platform game, which can be played online with other players. We don’t have the time or resources to develop a stand-alone game so we made Jumpers Heaven as a modification to Call of Duty 2, which is one of the most popular multiplayer first-person games ever made. CoD 2 was already known for its strafe jumping glitch, which was used by its players to get to ‘unreachable’ places in the game’s stock maps. We thought this would serve as a good basis for our platform game, and so many months and countless hours of work later Jumpers Heaven was born.
