A timed, single-player puzzle game, where the objective is to clear all spaces from a field that do not contain a mine.
In Minesweeper you are presented with a field of spaces (can be 2D or 3D in any shape). Left-clicking on a space reveals it, right clicking on a space marks it with a flag.
- If a mine is revealed, the player has failed the level.
- If a space does not contain a mine, it will show a number depending on how many adjacent spaces contain mines.
- If there are no adjacent mines, it will show as blank and reveal all adjacent blank spaces until a numbered space is revealed.
Once you have sufficient information on an area, you can use logic to find the location of the mines, and then to clear the safe spaces.
