Almost every move I made resulted in a loud raspberry which rather symbolically denoted my premature end. Still, for those of a methodical (not to mention suicidal) nature this might well provide amusement. Read Review
It should pass an interesting evening for a moderately expert bomb disposal officer, but be warned that in your profession, careful thought is more important than a fast finger on the button. Read Review
A nail-biting test of skill and nerves! It's up to you to defuse the unexploded bomb.
As a member of the renowned Uxb team, you have been assigned the task of defusing an old war-time bomb.
Unfortunately this is a type of bomb you have never seen before and there is no documentation available to aid you.
Therefore you must rely on your skill, intuition and good luck!
To aid you in your task you have a toolkit, but owing to limited working space in the vicinity of the bomb, you may only choose six items. The toolkit consists of: small spanner, copper hammer, cold chisel, special fluid, sidecutters, stethoscope, socket set, pliers, hydraulic jack, special spanner, insulating tape and small screwdriver.
To see the list of options, type MENU (ENTER). If your nerves betray you, you could try asking for HELP!
An important feature is that, if you unfortunately meet your demise, you may restart from your last move, or, if you feel you were proceeding incorrectly, you may start again.
