To bring up the menu simply press the <menu> button, then you can define the level of play in the settings.

To initialize a game, press the <GO> button, then hold down the yellow button to start the game.

After 10 seconds, the other button is flashing, then release the first button and within 2 seconds press the second button. If this action is not made within 4 seconds, the bomb explodes. Then repeat the operation.

Warning, do not shake the phone, press or release too early or too late a button, otherwise the bomb explodes and the game is over.

Good luck.
