bomb defuse game

What is it?

It’s a game for children, you get a bundle with 5 tasks/puzzles, each of them gives you 1 digit, when you collected the 5 digits, you can defuse the bomb. If you did something wrong, the bomb will ‘explode’.

Why?

The design was made to be used by speelplein zowiezo. a youth working organisation. The request was made by¬† hackerspace Brixel in Hasselt to create something fun and tech’ish for kids.

How?

The bomb itself consists of an arduino, LCD display, piezo buzzer and a keypad. The participant first enters his/her bundle number they got assigned, and then enter the code, if the code is correct, music will play and the display will show ‘bomb defused’. If not the correct code, the buzzer will play another tune, and the display will say ‘bomb exploded’.

The code can be obtained from solving the puzzles in the bundles, for now, these consist of morse code, vinegere table ciphers, and other kids friendly puzzles that teach crypto.
