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.”
RPS Recommented – Rock Paper Shotgun
“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.”
Recommended – PC Gamer
"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
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.)
Logic games like this are my absolute favorite type of mobile game. I’ve searched the App Store a few times thru the years looking for this type of bomb disposal game but the ones I found weren’t very good. Soon as I played thru the first couple of tutorial sections I bought the full game. So far it’s just as good as I hoped and I’m excited to see what the devs have in store for future updates. I don’t normally don’t like timed puzzle games but there is an option for a longer timer in the settings that’ll make it not so stressful.
White pixels flashing
It would be a fantastic game were it not for all the white pixels flashing on and off throughout the screen . What’s up with that? It’s really annoying!! Not sure I can deal with it, I’ll give it another tray. Other than that the game is seriously phenomenal.
