this is decompiled assembly.

it looks like this accepts two numbers as input.

from what i can tell Vfffffffc   must be between 0-4 and eax must be equal to Vfffffff8 or function explode_bomb is called.

the value of Vfffffffc    determines which case of the switch statement is executed.... then the code jumps to the value of "goto"... then the rest of the statements are excuted.

is that accurate?
/*	Procedure: 0x08048EC1 - 0x08048F80
 *	Argument size: -76
 *	Local size: 40
 *	Save regs size: 0
 *	Called by:
 *		main()
 */
 
phase_3(A8)
/* unknown */ void  A8;
{
	/* unknown */ void  V0;
	/* unknown */ void  V4;
	/* unknown */ void  V8;
	/* unknown */ void  Vfffffff8;
	/* unknown */ void  Vfffffffc;
 
    V8 = & Vfffffff8;
    V4 = & Vfffffffc;
    V0 = "%d %d";
    *esp = A8;
    if(L080489D4() <= 1) {
        explode_bomb();
    }
    if(Vfffffffc <= 7) {
        switch(Vfffffffc) {
            case 0:
                eax = 0x304;
                goto L08048f3e;
            case 1:
                eax = 0;
                goto L08048f3e;
            case 2:
                eax = 0;
                asm("o16 nop");
                goto L08048f43;
            case 3:
                eax = 0;
                goto L08048f48;
            case 4:
