cut the blue wire... or the red...?"
This is a very common phrase in many movies when the
action hero has a bomb in front of him with little time
left and he has to choose which wire to cut and stop the
bomb from exploding saving millions of people.
This game is just that... a count down timer and 4 wires
of different colors.
The player has to remove each wire until it deactivates
I've decided to build my version
on a breadboard because it has a more realistic look.
All the wires and components create a better game
Anyway I have made a pcb drawing making it possible to
create a clean build.
The PCB used for this Project is double layer and its
size is 70.79 mm x 42.01 mm.
side - Here is the top side of the pcb
How it works
Turning the power on, the display and piezo will start small
After the introduction, the message "S1" will appear on the display
meaning that S1 needs to be pressed for the game to start.
All four wires must be plugged in. If one of the wires is not
plugged in, the message "EE" will display meaning that an error
occurred and the game will not begin.
As the game begins, the count down will start. The display shows the
timer and 15 seconds is all the time we have to defuse the bomb.
There are four wires - red, green, blue and white. Unplugging them
will simulate the cutting of the wire. Only one wire can be
unplugged at a time and each wire can only be used once per play.
There are four actions possible - defuse the bomb, explode the bomb,
increase timer speed and no consequence.
There is no need to change the color position because each position
will correspond to a random action.
Every time a wire is unplugged, its action will be randomly given
meaning that it's possible that even all of the wires will not
defuse the bomb.
menu - waiting for S1 to be pressed to start the game
Counting down - time to choose which wire to pull
Four wires - red, blue, green and white
program named Bgame.Hex
must be saved in the 16F88 microcontroller's memory
before soldering on the PCB.
It's an original game and can bring a lot of
fun to the kids.
For a final look it's possible to cut 3 pieces of PVC tube, paint
them in red and glue the circuit on the tubes. This will make the
traditional look of the dynamite bomb.
