Watch: First Gameplay Footage of Boom!

Alex Davis

Devin tries to defuse the $50,000 bomb. What do you think of the game?


If you read our review, we’re pretty excited about Fox’s upcoming quiz show Boom!, debuting Thursday, June 25th, at 8:00PM ET. The series sees contestants trying to defuse bombs by cutting wires corresponding to right answers. Cut the wrong wire and…boom. You and some of the audience are covered in whatever mystery substance is inside the bomb. Play a perfect game and you can leave with up to $500,000.

We’ve got a preview of a $50,000 bomb round (h/t Mashable). The contestant must cut wires corresponding to phone apps whose icons in the Apple app store only feature one letter. Can she do it and save the team, bringing them closer to the Mega Money Bomb? Check it out.

What do you think of the game so far?

    I’m pleasantly shocked with the pacing of that question- especially with the way modern game shows normally go.

    Wow. That went pretty quickly. I was expecting one or more commercial breaks to “build tension”. They might actually get through more than one team per show. Will wonders never cease?

    As per our review, we were also pleasantly surprised with the pacing. Definitely this will be a fun show to watch.

    They probably will get through more than one team per show. They have a normal amount of commercial breaks, but it’s done nicely, without spoilers.
