This is my take on Minesweeper, based on the Windows XP game. (Right next to Pinball).
- Flags and...
- Customizable field size and bomb amount
- Awesome backgrounds that aren't actually mine (credits included)
- Less awesome pixel icons used on the minefield (which are mine).
- Game saving and loading
- Made an algorithm that solves it for you. It in the case of there being no way to know what to do next, a random square is uncovered.
How to play (yourself):
- Every square you uncover shows a number. This indicates how many bombs there are in the 8 neighbouring cells.
- If you're certain that certain cells are bombs, you can mark them by right-clicking the cell.*
- If you're certain that certain cells can't be bombs, you can open them by left-clicking the cell.*
- You win when all cells without a bomb are uncovered and all cells with a bomb are marked.
* Unless you switched the functionality of the mouse buttons. Marking a cell is done by clicking the mouse button which opens up the context menus.
How to play (with the computer):
- Click step to iterate through the field once.
- Click run to keep doing steps. Click again to turn it off.
- Light cells were opened up. (Good)
- Green bombs were marked. (Good)
- Cells with flags were wrongly marked. (Bad)
- Dark cells were still uncovered. (Bad)
- Red bombs weren't marked. (Bad)
