60 minutes

Armageddon is a heartbeat away. You and your team have just 60 minutes to find the nuclear control console and enter the firing codes to disarm the bomb. Succeed and the world will live to fight another day. Fail and watch the missiles launch and the world, as we know it, to end.
T-60 minutes. And counting.
