A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

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.

Thanks to your support, Bomb Squad Academy has been Greenlit!

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.

Good luck!

We are working as hard as we can to release the full game in he first quarter 2017.

I love how this game teaches basic programming logic at the same time as playing a fun puzzle game. We really enjoyed playing this, and we are looking forward to seeing new levels come up. We did AND levels, we did OR levels, what about IF statements as another level?

enjoyed the game ALOT

This game is great, Cant wait for the full version :D


I really enjoyed this game. It was a fun little puzzle experience, and I'm looking forward to the full game. I feel like the tutorial really held your hand, and it didn't leave me having to think critically about the puzzles in the tutorial. I really liked when it introduced the button and just said "here's an new thing. don't blow it up." without telling you how it worked (even though it was pretty obvious). I would love some more complicated components and boards, as some of these, even in the later game, weren't super challenging, and I found myself just speeding through a lot of them. But I am definitely looking forward to where this goes.

Excellent puzzle game. Puzzle mechanics were fun, having countdown timer increased the amount of pressure and suspense. If I had one complaint it would be that the tutorial held your hand a little too much. Would be nice to just be able to solve puzzle and instantly finish tutorial.

this game is really fun!!! wish that there were more difficult levels to play, though i still loved the adventure that was already there.

Had a Blast ... hahaha ... get it ... Looking forward to the full version

Loved it!

Loved it!


Really good experience. Maybe a randomizer would be cool. But i guess that will be in the full game.

Pretty fun game, but I have some complaints. None of the circuits shown in this game are possible because of one simple reason. Since it's obvious that the circuits on the circuite boards and bombs are powered by a simple battery, the circuits shouldn't be able to receive any power if they don't have any NEUTRAL WIRES! That's how the basics of electronics work, and you failed at that in the first tutorial. It's a fun game, obviously meant for an audience who isn't fafmilier with the basics of electronics, but the no neutral wire thing kinda bothered me the entire time I played. Also, of coarse wires are kinda like traces because they ARE traces, at least the shorter ones used in circuits are. On a higher note, I have a suggestion for your game. You could add a custom mode where players could use a bread board (a tool used for making temporary circuits) to make their own puzzles. If you include neutral wires, this game could be very educational for learning about electronics and stuff. Or just leave it as a fun little puzzle game with a bunch of puzzles. Thanks for reading my review and suggestions!


Thanks for your comment! You are correct that the circuits wouldn't actually work because there is no current return path anywhere. Similarly, logic gates usually need separate power supplies as well. We just decided to make things simpler to keep puzzles manageable.

The ability to make your own boards is the single most requested feature, but it's also the most complicated to implement, so I can't say right now if we'll be able to add it. If the full game does well, then it's possible we will!

Well, thanks for replying. Your game really is a fun one, and I hope it does well. Have a mira day!

Great Game


I did a video on this game and it was soooooooo much fun!


Awesome video!

Why are you using sissors to cut wires in your thumbnail? Sissors are used to cut thin objects such as paper. You use wire cutters to cut wires. It's much more efficient.

Anorak alert

I played this demo, and it is AWESOME.

Hope nothing will ruin development.

Thanks for the support! We are still working on the game and on track to release this quarter.

Gameplay Video:

I personally found this to be a bit too easy...until the last bomb XD

But yeah, I like the concept! Really interested to see where this goes :D

I also made a let's play. Hope it helps!

Yeah it is definitely easier when you are familiar with logic. The full game will also have a mode without the dotted curent lines, which is way harder. In fact it originally didn't have the current lines, but was too hard for most people. :)

Awesome game! Really fun concept, can't wait for the full game. Keep up the great work devs!

Thank you! We're working hard at it!

This was really really fun I finished all the levels! (you can say i am smart xD )

An absolute "must play" , i can't wait for the finished game!


Thanks for the video! You did pretty good, overall! :)

I liked the demo a lot, but for me its "just" backtracking the "Detonate"-Line and then activate every other swith which is not involved. I would like to have it a little bit more complicate/challenging like :

  • Defuse the bomb when a pattern on an 4x4 grid matches (like 4X / 4Y inputs)
  • Activate the "Defuse"-Leds in a specific order
  • Add XOR/XAND/....
Nethertheless will definitly buy the final game :)

This was an absolutely fun game, I don't normally get into puzzler games, but to be honest this was a blast....pun intended! I had buddies in the EOD so it was fun to do this little simulator that I'm sure is nothing like EOD haha but fun nonetheless. Below is a video that I did playing this demo, looking forward to a full release in the near future! :D

Thanks! Your video was really fun!
