Save the world one wire at a time with Bomb Squad Academy, a puzzle game where you have to defuse bombs under a time constraint.
Analyze the way the electronic boards function and identify how to disable the detonator. Be careful though, cutting the wrong wire or flipping the wrong switch might just trigger the bomb.
As you progress through the game, you will be faced with increasingly challenging circuits that will test your ability to work through logic puzzles quickly. Identify the components, understand the connections and learn what makes the circuit work. Do it fast enough and you might just make it through.
From the Press:
“It also manages to achieve that bomb defusing essential – the moment of nervous uncertainty when you cut a wire, either leading to a sudden explosion, or the relief of simple nothingness.”

“Bomb Squad Academy is a refreshing, cerebral puzzler that might just teach you a thing or two about electronics in the process. That’s some cheap and easy knowledge right there.”

"I kinda wish Bomb Squad Academy existed way back when I was learning, because there are three areas we had to study over for six weeks when I was learning it, and this game boiled it all down to a 20-minute lesson with practical applications. This is a game you should be playing in a technology class and then taking a test afterward."

Ratings and Reviews
Although I am not an electrical engineering student, I am still interested in learning circuits and the like. This app comes as a perfect mix between educational introductions to circuits and relaxing enjoyment of playing games. Love the design- looks so professional and intriguing as if I am actually taking an academy specializing in bombs 💣
The only suggestion that I have is sometimes I got the bomb quiz right by luck (especially when I have a couple of moves left to disarm a bomb). This is fine to me, because again I know that I am no expert in the field. However, I would like an option that let me go back and see the complete and correct circuits that I have just solved with luck. It is just my habit, go back and restudy something I did not know for sure.
I am purchasing the premium. Hopes the premium version will continue to be as amazing as the free version. Developers, please make more levels for the app. I have a feeling the currently available levels will not be enough to sate my eagerness and curiosity 😘😘
Also, I searched the App Store and this app seems to be the only app that you made. Developers, when you make more apps like this (don’t have to be the same theme), let me know and I will be happy to play.
I’ve been hoping someone would make this game for years. There’s several “bomb” games on the App Store but none of the ones I’ve seen are like actual bomb defusing which is what I was looking for. This one is.
You’re defusing/disabling circuits in this game in a realistic way. Cutting wires, following and shutting circuits down.
Great job all around on this one. You can play around with the free version but this one’s worth your $.
Buy it, play it, love it!
The last update added some flickering to some graphics elements on iPad Pro 9.7.
The game still play fine but it’s going a little sideways on graphics.
Too bad you can’t do more than 5 stars on ratings. This is easily the best thing on the app store and this is coming from a guy that owns well over 1000 games and has been buying and playing them since the store started. This one ticks all the boxes for me.
A funny additional suggestion...
Adding a message that says something like “device (iPad or phone) erasing” if bomb isn’t solved correctly would have been a funny/terrifying addition, (similar to the trick messages in the game Eternal Darkness on the GameCube.)
I've only completed the first two sets of puzzles, but I'm seriously considering getting the full version. I have noticed one fatal flaw, however. When you get the pop-up that asks you for an ad, you can just go to the main menu or reopen the app for it to disappear, preventing the need to watch an ad to retry. I don't develop games, but I'd just recommend storing a boolean value for each level that determines whether or not the ad is required to retry. Without this, it's like the winrar infinite free trial. Aside from that, wonderful app. I would give this app 10/5 stars if I could.
