The Mad Bomber is planning something evil again. He's planted 12 bombs in different areas in the city and the only way we can dismantle them is by solving his ridiculously, hilarious riddles filled with puns. Will we save our city time? The clock is ticking...
This game is designed entirely over videos. It's the first online game we've played in this format. There are essentially 12 videos and each video contains a puzzle. Once you got the answer, you'll type it below the video to proceed onto the next video. If you get stuck, there's an online hint system.
If you want to play this in a competitive mode, try to solve it before the timer runs out on the video. Good thing we have a super power called "Pause" and that allowed us to not have to rewind too many times (I know, I know, we semi cheated...). It would be quite challenging on some of the puzzles to finish before the timer runs out unless you are super quick at visualization puzzles and memory. Since the videos were so entertaining, we usually just let it run to the end even if we got the answer just to see what other amusing puns were waiting for us. The puzzles were quite easy and with the aid from those silly puns, it's a great game to play as a group and even with kids. One last thing, watch out for those "Butts"!
