INTRODUCTION

This page provides a downloadable version of the MineSweeper V1.1 game which I wrote for the Amiga range of computers many moons ago. The game runs on any Public Screen (e.g. the Workbench screen) and offers a number of customisable options: The program requires an Amiga with Workbench 2.0 or greater. The game is Public Domain (freely-available) and fully functional (no demo or crippled version). However, if you like the game, you could always send me a bar of chocolate :-)

QUICK GAME DESCRIPTION

The object of MineSweeper is to locate (and avoid) all of the mines which are hidden in a mine field. When the game starts you will see a blank (mine free) area in the upper left corner of the grid which is surrounded by numbers. These numbers (ranging from 1 to 8) will tell you how many of that particular square's immediate neighbours contain mines. By counting, thinking, and the odd bit of guess work, it is up to you to figure out which squares have mines and which are clear. i.e. You must click on all of the clear squares to win the game: click on just one mine, and it's lights out time!
