    Bitsweeper

    Did you say minesweeper ?








    From developer Heriberto Delgado, here's minesweeper in DS flavor.

    Gameplay:


    Gameplay

    You will be presented with a clean, unchecked bitfield, where bits are planted. You don't know their location; you must infer it through visual cues that appear on the field.


    The first step is always the most dangerous. You will never know if, right there, on the first spot you check, there is a bit just waiting to explode! If it isn't, your specialized tools will aid you in locating the bits by showing you, on each uncovered spot, a number identifying the number of bits on all spots around you.


    This is your only clue. You must use your brain to identify where all the bits are located. Optionally, you can put a flag on each spot that you deduce there is a bit, or mark with a ? (question sign) the places where you're not (yet) sure if there's one.

    Any chance of a link to the developer's site, original forum thread he submitted it in or wherever you guys got it? I'd like to see what else he's done, but google can't find it. [​IMG]

    [Edit] Wow that was quick! Thanks [​IMG]

    Err... in minesweeper the first click is NEVER a bomb. It re-randomizes the field depending on where you click first. Would be kinda silly to have the first choice blow you up in this little game [​IMG]

    Not true. In Expert mode, my first click has been a bomb multiple times.

    In expert mode, there are 99 bombs and 480 spaces. Lets round that to 1 bomb every 5 spaces. I just tried 120 times to get a bomb on the 1st click and never did. Either I am extremely lucky, or you are wrong.

    I could swear I've clicked a mine the first click in minesweeper, but when I test it now, it won't happen.

    I'm thinking they may have changed it for the winXP version, because it was a really long time ago when I used to play that game.
