Prevent bombs from exploding in Defuser for Windows Phone

If you like puzzle games, then you are going to like Defuser for Windows Phone. The goal is to prevent bombs from going off. There are five different button types to defuse and 40 levels that will test your skills of multitasking and puzzle solving. We've installed the game on our Nokia Lumia 930. Watch our gameplay video to see if it's your type of game.

The first few levels let you get comfortable with the game mechanics. For example, the first button that needs to be defused simply needs you to press and hold it for two seconds. Each level after that adds more difficulty. There will be more buttons and they will need to be defused differently. The next button challenge is a switch. It requires you to swipe to the other direction. There's also a speedometer that you'll need to keep tapping so it doesn't drop down below red. Another button requires you to spin it around in the arrow direction for a certain amount of time.

Part of the challenge is timing. A button can only be defused when its light starts blinking. As you progress to more difficult levels, you will need to defuse more than one button. For example, you might need to press and hold the first button for 3 seconds, while you keep tapping the speedometer.

If you try to touch a button before it lights up, the bomb explodes. If you hold a button too long, it explodes. It's easy to get addicted to Defuser, because the retry button is just one click away.

After defusing the bomb, the game shows your accuracy in percentage. That's converted into earning lightbulbs. More accuracy means more lightbulbs. You can get up to three per level.

Defuser is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. It displays ads during gameplay, but they don't get in way. It's definitely worth checking out if you're into puzzle games. Go download it now and let us know what you think!
