Minesweeper, one of the other ancient computer games of yore! I decided to take a crack at programming it as a sort of 'holiday' from programming anything else. It's not the most polished game on the planet, but it does work as intended.

Features (v1.1)
- The first click of the game will never be a mine from now on!
- The diagonal squares will now also be revealed when you click on a square with no mines!
- Polished up the graphics by a fair bit, if I do say so myself!

The main inspiration for making this came from:
Luna Playing Minesweeper
Made By

The game also features something made by the following artist, see if you can find out how to access it!

Nightmare mode. First game, 190 sec. I'm not used to seeing the whole field at once.

Nightmare on first try in 569 seconds. I've become slow...

Or it's just time for another improvement!
Right now, you have to click on (almost) every single numbered square, which takes quite some time and is especially annoying when revealing all these adjacent 1s. In the original game, if you click both mouse buttons, the middle mouse button or double-click on a revealed square, and the correct number of mines have been flagged around the square, then the remaining surrounding squares are revealed.
Maybe implement that feature by holding CTRL.

But nice little game, so far. And muffins!

The game doesn't end when you clear the field... Not for me, anyway. I am quite sure I cleared the field.

I have a minor complain: when you click on the first square, it shouldn't be a bomb. The game is meant to be completely solvable; the bombs should be placed in the field after you click for the first time. Other than that, nice interface and fxs! :)

Well, I sure as hell ain't the quickest, but I can at least say I that managed to beat nightmare mode after a few tries. I don't think I've tried playing Minesweeper in seriousness since I was like eight years old. It's really not half as hard as I remember it being. Just goes to show what a little logic will do for ya. LOL

I play a quick, dirty game of Minesweeper. I've got quite a bit of experience with the game, so I don't even use the flags most of the time. Seeing this game, I think, Great! I start the hardest version. All is going great...for seven seconds. I click on a square which my instincts tell me is safe, but it is a bomb.

WHAT? I look closer. Right next to it is a non-bomb square that has not been revealed by the wave of non-bomb-ness that should have cleared it. Trying a few more games and coming up against this same problem multiple times, I feel I must rage.

WHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYY? Of course, if the coding simply won't allow you to make the changes, than that's okay I guess. I won't hold it against you.

If you're confused by my claim, I'll try to explain to you in my non-code understanding. Every square that turns completely blank when you click on it passes on the click to adjacent squares, creating a whole wave that converts all the touching blank squares, plus all the numbered squares touching those. What's missing is this simple thing: the blank squares do not convert diagonally adjacent blank squares. If you change that, it'll make the game correct.

If you aren't interested or something won't let you change it...oh well. I'll be fine.

Great game, the rest of it! I think I'll try the easier versions to compensate for the different play style it requires.
