Under rating threshold (show) Sorry, but the lag kind of ruins this game for me... A pretty good variant of minesweeper, nonetheless.

Developer response from Abigayl

I did this with a certain methodology that has minimal lag for 95% of players... unfortunately the remaining 5% get hit with some massive lag :(.

Under rating threshold (show) Sorry, 1/5, I like to "mark" where my "mines" are, your game does not seem to have that workable option !! Please fix this so I may enhance my rating!! -Marz

+ - !

Developer response from Abigayl

No workable option? There's three ;). You can hold down shift or ctrl while clicking to toggle on "right-click mode" temporary OR you can press F (for flag) to permanently turn on/off "right-click mode". In "right-click mode", if you click a covered tile, it flags it, and if you click an uncovered tile with the proper number of flags around it, it uncovers the rest of the spaces around it (which I refer to as "super-click"). I too was frustrated with finding a Minesweeper game that didn't have all of the features... which is why I made this in the first place! ;)

Nope, this was 100% from scratch. In fact, I was so far away from using any pre-made material that until I actually searched for the definitions of the difficulty levels (near the end of the coding process) did I find that I was not the first to come up with the first-click empty spot... I was so disappointed to find that out that it had been implemented since Vista since the last time I had played was XP, so I thought I had made a new addition to the series instead of just being the same...

Under rating threshold (show) great implementation of the classic. Did I read somewhere that you did this without any actors? If you create a Mobius strip version, I'll give you 5/5. :-)

Developer response from Abigayl

Mobius strip version? And you are correct, I did this without any actors (in the normal sense of the word. There are "actors" in the game, but they are just graphics holders for the flags and bombs).

Under rating threshold (show) I had two blocks left on medium. One of the two was a mine. I hit the mine.

Developer response from Abigayl

Aww :(. I tried doing some inner coding to minimize those situations, but it's very hard to get rid of them entirely...

Under rating threshold (show) Nice idea but I am too lazy to flag with keyboard. I don't know if it is possible because of flash but I want the right mouse button to flag.

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Abigayl

Right mouse button can't be used in flash, which is why there isn't any true Minesweeper flash game that I know of.

Thanks :). Allowing for custom sizes ended up being a bit challenging.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice conversion of a classic game, good job. Some comments: 1) I would suggest some very basic instructions for those who never played Minesweeper or haven't played it in a long time. For example, what do the numbers mean, or that you are supposed to locate mines without clicking on them to win. 2) A pause button would be good, as khixan mentioned. However someone could abuse it to study the board, like you said, but could also simply screenshot the game before pausing if you "hide" the screen while paused. Maybe the solution would be a "quick pause", lasting only some seconds? It would give enough time to reply in the chat.

+ - !

Developer response from Abigayl

Ah yes, figured most people have played Minesweeper before... will try to add instructions. Am also looking into implementing the pause. If someone wants to screenshot the game and keep pausing, that's rather hardcore... :P EDIT: There actually IS a pause that I forgot about. Just press the scores button. That will pause your game :) EDIT 2: Pause added!

Under rating threshold (show) Needs multi-player! :P

Developer response from Abigayl

If you want multiplayer, do Yahoo IM. That has a Minesweeper game in it.

Under rating threshold (show) Of course it's a simple minesweeper game. Didn't do much for me, but a nice test. I just have a feeling that it's slightly easier than regular minesweeper, but I've never been able to figure it out. :)

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Abigayl

If you include that the first click is guaranteed blank spot, then yes it's easier. I also tried to eliminate some of the common luck-based endings with the code. Besides that, it's the classic version.

Under rating threshold (show) Classis game and well done. Only wish there was a pause button since I keep wrecking my time score chatting. Or maybe there is one and I just haven't noticed it yet :)

+ - !

(2)

Developer response from Abigayl

A pause button was a toss up for me... really gave it a lot of thought, but I ended up deciding not to include one since players could abuse it to study the board and plan their next move... unless I hide the game while it's paused... *starts thinking* EDIT: There actually IS a pause that I forgot about. Just press the scores button. That will pause your game :) EDIT 2: Pause implemented :)

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty good. but not much differences from the classic minesweeper. 3/5

+ - !

Developer response from Abigayl

Aye, that was the point... wanted a true version to play to compare myself to others with. Just added my extras to try to avoid any copyright issues.

Under rating threshold (show) If you are interested in a "Reboot" version at some point that has a wrap-around feature (where the edges of one side connect to the squares on the other side), please rate this up. Or, if you have other ideas you'd like to see in a "Reboot" version, please feel free to let me know too ;)

Under rating threshold (show) It'ss Minesweeper. That's about it. It's well made, but I could just open the Windows game while chatting. Again, it's very well made and responsive, so 3/5.

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Abigayl

Aye, but Windows doesn't let you compare with your friends ;). That was reason enough for me to make a Kong version, but yeah, it's just Minesweeper :P.

Under rating threshold (show) Well, its just Minesweeper with Kongregate chat on the side. That's about it. I for one am a slow thinker kind of minesweeper guy who never really rushes so I never found the Superclick very useful though it is pretty nice to be able to do a relaxing game to compliment chat. Keep up these simple games, practice makes perfect. 3/5

+ - !

Developer response from Abigayl

I plan on using it sometimes while chatting too... not for scores, just for something to do while waiting for others to respond.
