Designed for use with the Intellivoice Voice Synthesis Module, Bomb Squad has you on a mission to disarm a bomb before it destroys your city. As you rewire and repair electrical circuits with cutters, pliers and a soldering iron, Frank, the demolition expert, will give you instructions on what to try next. Boris, the terrorist who planted the bomb, will chide you with exclamations such as: "It won't be easy!" and "You'll never do it in time!"
As Bomb Squad begins, a simulated time clock will be activated, and the time you have left (less than half an hour) will be displayed. To disarm the bomb, you must decipher a numerical code. In order to have a shot at guessing the code with any certainty, you must first repair a number of circuits. However, after repairing a mere two circuits (or when the clock has wound down to 15 seconds), you can risk a wild guess. If you guess correctly, you win 1000 bonus points, but if you are wrong, the time bomb will explode and the game will end.
In some of the more difficult skill levels, circuit boards occasionally overheat, and you must extinguish the flames with a fire extinguisher. Also, a siren may sound, shaking loose parts from the top of a circuit board. ~ Chris Couper, All Game Guide
