Episode 5: Classic Nuclear Terrorism

Find a nuclear bomb before it goes off!

Page Last Updated: April 1, 2006


You are a member of the nuclear weapons task force and as such have the awful task of disarming nuclear devices if terrorists ever manage to deploy one. It was just discovered that terrorists have hidden a nuclear bomb in a building. It is up to you to find and disarm the bomb before it goes off.

Using the Console

Creating text games is interesting, but my goal was also to present the game in a way that would simulate a teletype machine as close as possible. This is why the game uses my console.

My Teletype Emulator is designed to simulate playing the game on an old teletype machine, down to the dot matrix output. Anybody who has used an old printer knows how slow they were. They were also noisy, but out of the goodness of my heart, I decided to leave the noise out.

For getting input from the user, I decided to go with a fancy LCD model, in which what you type will be send to a LCD display for your approval before being transmitted to the machine. Unlike real machines, my terminal is intelligent and will only let you enter something when the program is requesting input. Any other typing is ignored!

Playing the Game

It is easy to set up a game. You just choose the building that the bomb is hidden in.

The length of time that you have to find the bomb will be based on how big the building you selected is. Obviously it is harder to find a bomb in a larger building.

For game play purposes, it is assumed that it takes one minute to move to a new location and take a gieger counter reading. If you run out of time before you find the bomb, you lose the game.

Each turn consists of entering three coordinates in the format x,y,floor. X and Y represent where on the floor to search and the floor coordinate is which floor to search on.

The geiger reading that you receive is a number indicating how strong the radiation is at your location. The more radiation, the closer you are to the device
