Bomb Squad does a good job of taking a basic "guess the number" game and building a fun game around it. The game does a great job with its soundtrack to heighten the tension. "The code! The code! Figure out the code!" "You'll never do it in time!" Boris even has a German accent! You're rewarded with a nice fireworks show upon completion of your task.
