The game requires two players to defuse the bomb, one of the player has the manual to help the other and guide him in the process of defusing the bomb.

The manual semi-convoluted instructions for different modules makes the game fun and interesting. A module will have anywhere from 3 to 6 randomly generated colored wires. A module evolves around many relational questions like, “number of different colored wires?” “Do the bomb has a serial number?”

Considering these factors, it is the manual reader duty to plot and illusion in mind along the way and figure out which wire to cut, or which buttons to press before conveying to the other person holding the bomb in VR. The developers did provide a life-line through incorrect actions termed as “strikes” before the bomb explodes or before the timer runs out.
