Don’t cut the wrong wire or else it will go BOOM! This is Fox’s newest game show where one teams of three take turns answering questions by defusing a bomb, with each bomb corresponds a question and multicolor wires corresponds a answer. Each question has only one incorrect answer, meaning the wire cannot be cut. If one person cut the wrong wire, the bomb explodes! Well not just fire explodes, but just food substance, like BBQ sauce, maple syrup, etc. The game continues until all three players are eliminated or made it to the seven and final round, where the maximum top prize is $500,000.
I thought this was the fun game. Imagine having Double Dare or any other Nickelodeon sliming game show and made it into as a primetime slot. I enjoyed it very much. You get 30 seconds to cut three wires (although they add more time later on as the game progress). I was hoping to add more time, like 45 seconds, because I think 30 seconds may be too short. Because you have to hurry up and think very fast while the clock is ticking. But that what game show works, making it really suspense and lot of fun. One thing I like about is that the gameplay goes really fast. There’s no gameplay edited as one whole episode, not much build in suspense (except the three-second bomb countdown). The first team just got eliminated in the first fifteen minute, that was fast. At least I don’t have to worry about waiting for next week episode to meet a new team.
I enjoyed it really much. Could be one of the best new game of this summer. I already plan out for my next drawing. So what do you think about "BOOM!"? Tell me your opinion in a comment below.
