Mines is a simple and elegant implementation of the classic game Minesweeper.
The purpose of the game is to find all the mines on the board by uncovering all the empty cells. You can use flags to mark the cells suspected of containing a mine to avoid an accidental detonation.

- Predefined and custom board settings.
- Save and load games.
- Resume last unfinished game on launch (enabled by default).
- The first click always opens a clean area.
- You can cheat shooting a laser beam to uncover the next empty cell.
- Optional animations and sounds (enabled by default).
- Smooth graphics: Vector drawing using OpenGL.
- Window can be resized at any time maintaining an approximated (default) or exact aspect ratio.
- Fully customizable appearance. You can change font, colors, and images (you can use your own images too).
- It includes a set of predefined themes.

Uncover Cell: Mouse Left
Toggle Flag: Mouse Right or Shift + Mouse Left

Repetitive no longer

Well, the game UI is pretty good for being so basic. It can be customized to achieve the look you like, easy on the eyes, etc.

The one thing that bugs me is the repetitiveness of the game layout. I seem to be playing the same two or three game layouts over and over again. It needs a better field assignment generator to keep thngs interesting.

*Updated to say that the new field generator is much improved, eliminating the repetitiveness of the older versions. It's much more fun to play now.*

Otherwise, not a bad game for such a simple UI.

Control-click disabled

I play this on my laptop, which means doing a right click on my touchpad can sometimes be a bit fickle. Since setting flags requires a right click I was going to just use control click to do a right click like you can do anywhere else on tthe system, however that doesn't work it just does a normal left click.

There also isn't a timer which I personally find to be a core feature of a minesweeper game. If my only issue with it had been the timer it would have gottten either 2 or 3 stars since it would be a passibly average version of minesweeper.

Functional, Beautiful, and Fun

…what more can I say? It’s a classic minesweeper game with a pretty face, nice sound-effects, and lots of customizability. Great game!
