Ultimate Retro Project
Episode 6: Modern Nuclear Terrorism

Find a bomb in a skyscraper!

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.

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 selecting a location from which a geiger counter reading will be taken. As you are in a building, there are multiple floors. You can only see one floor at a time. The current floor is shown in the status pannel on the left side of the screen. You change floors by using the elevator control panel, typing in the number of the floor you want, then pressing the "go to floor" button. Once on the desired floor, you select a search location by clicking on the square that you wish to search.

Floors start at 1 and extend up to the height of the building. The buildings in this game will have a 13th floor. Each floor is uses the same coordinate system that hide and seek uses. For those of you who havent played my hide and seek game (shame on you) the X represents the west-east location. It starts at 1, which would be the westmost point, and increments toward the east. The Y coordinate represents the north-south location. It starts at 1, which would be the northern most point, and increases as you move south.

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

Behind the Game

While planned in August of 2001, this game was almost dropped after the events of September 11th.
After a lot of consideration, I decided to keep the game. My main reasons for keeping the game in this series are as follows:

Three dimensional searches are the next logical step in search games. While I could have given some type of direction to the player, I went with the distance theme, as this type of search was a common variant in versions of the one and two dimensional search games.

System Requirements

This game is requires Java 1.1 or better to run. Browsers that support 1.1 tend to be 4.x or better versions. Windows XP users may have to download a Java plug in to use Java applets.
