Four Bombs

by Clavus - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Four bombs with increasingly strange deactivation mechanisms. 10 seconds. Infinite retries.

A lesson in memorizing solutions till you're fast enough.

OS/X version compiled by sambooo. Let me know if there are any issues.

My last attempt I finished it with just under a second left.

Ironically I also made a game called "Four Bombs", and that was only because I didn't finish all ten I was planning...

Neat idea. Quite hard, but retries are the point of it. I liked it!

this is insane! and really addictive. I reach the 4th bomb, but it was incredibly hard because i had 1 second to solve the puzzle XD. Well done

I can't beat the mine-sweeper bomb. I've tested every single one that ends up left, but they're all mines.
I'm using the OSX version, if that makes a difference.

my goodness

This is rough! I made it to #3. Pretty impressive.

As in Minesweeper, you have to mark the bombs using right-click. It kinda assumes you know minesweeper so that's my bad.

Ah, okay.

Argh minesweeper! My nemesis!

I failed really hard at it. I've never been good at Minesweeper. :\

Nice concept! Rather than have to defuse just one bomb in 10s, how about 4!

So much fun, but I couldn't clear the last one.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
