Under rating threshold (show) Look people, it's like this: it's exactly like minesweeper except: (A) Some of the mines are worth more than 1 point (they range from 1-5 points). So an empty square next to a 1-point-mine and a 2-point-mine will display a "3". (B) You have to reveal ALL the squares to win, including the mines. You start at level one, and you can step on mines so long as they are less than or equal to your current level -- so you can step on 1-point-mines right away. Stepping on mines increases your experience, and once you have enough experience you advance to the next level. If you step on a mine greater than your current level, you lose some health, depending on how much greater it is (haven't figured out the exact formula here). Oh, and if you like the game, the author's website has different difficulty levels: http://www.hojamaka.com/game/mamosui_list.html

Under rating threshold (show) Awesome game, once you understand the game its extremely interesting and still challenging. Kudo's to hojamaka. But I would suggest better instructions in the future. Maybe an interactive tutorial?

Under rating threshold (show) For Monsters, their level is their attack power and hitpoints both, xSindyx's description is wrong. A level 5 will kill a lvl 1 outright. It's easier to see with a lvl 3. Player attacks first; mob 3hp -> 2 hp: mob hits for 3; p 10hp -> 7hp: next attack 2 -> 1 hp; 7 -> 4hp: 1 -> 0... mob dies and player has 4 hp left.

Under rating threshold (show) If you click on a monster that you already killed, a red number will appear that provides the same info as the regular white numbers. Click it again to change it back to the monster. + if this helps.

Under rating threshold (show) Press A and D to mark squares with the value of the monster underneath. Press A to count down from 5. Press D to count up from 2. I don't know why the developer just didn't let you press the actual keyboard numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5. The white numbers in the square indicate the point value of the monsters around it. In minesweeper this was the number of bombs around it. So a square with a 4 could have the following combinations of monsters around it: (4), (3, 1), (2,1,1), (1,1,1,1), or (2,2). Notice they all add up to 4, the number on the white square.

Under rating threshold (show) This is great! It's insane how you took Minesweeper and somehow made it better! However, it took me a while to figure out that you can switch between seeing the monster and the number beneath it, and it would have saved me some trouble if I had known that beforehand.

Buuut it's a pity that the bigger versions aren't available on Kong. 5/5 is still an option though, I'm gonna think about it.

Under rating threshold (show) The instructions were really confusing at first but it's REALLY fun once you get the hang of it. You need prior knowledge of how Minesweeper works first, then the number is the you see is the total level of monsters around that number =D A lot of mind math of adding and subtracting but afterwards it gets really fun, and when you get high enough level (by getting monsters either your level or below) you can kill all the monsters when you get to level 5 xD click to your hearts content lol!!

Under rating threshold (show) From the homepage of the creator: When you click on a tile with a monster in it, a battle begins. First you attack, and deal damage (equal to your level) to the monster. On the next turn, if the monster is still alive, it attacks you back. Your attacks alternate until one of you dies. You don't see this, though -- the battle plays out instantly after you click.

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty entertaining. But the instructions were pretty confusing (likely non-native English?). Instructions: Click tiles to reveal. The numbers indicate the sum of the levels (1-5) of monsters around that tile. So a 5 could be a level 5 monster, a level 2 and 3, etc. You can only kill monsters equal or below your current level. So for starters, find and kill (click on) level 1 monsters until you get to level 2, and repeat. If you click a monster higher level than you, you lose hp = level difference (so clicking a level 5 when you are level one hits for 4 hp, you start with 10). Hover over a tile and hit A,D or left,right to "flag" the tile with a suspected level number. Be careful, because you can still click these tiles. EX is your current experience, and NE is the xp needed to gain a level.

Under rating threshold (show) Much improved over minesweeper. Though instructions are horrid as possible. In addition to working your way from clear spots, this version has you going back to get more exp to level. There's also more math involved. Once you figure out how to play, especially if you are proficient in mine sweeper, then you'll be at ease.

Under rating threshold (show) Once again, Hojamaka has demonstrated lots of innovation with this variation on the theme of Minesweeper. It really was a lot of fun, although I found it to be pretty easy. (As long as you don't click on a dragon when you start!) For example, if you are Level 2 and you see a square that says "1" or "2", there is no danger in clicking any of the squares around it. It is ESSENTIAL to mark the squares if one intends on beating this game. As others have said, once you figure out how this game is played, it is a LOT of fun!

Under rating threshold (show) the health loss you get from stepping on too high a level monster(mine): if you are level 1: 2 gives 2 damage, 3 gives 6 damage, 4 and 5 kills (12 and 20 damage) if you are level 2: 3 gives 3 damage 4 gives 4 damage and 5 kills you (10 damage) if you are level 3: 4 gives 4 damage 5 gives 5 damage if you are level 4:5 gives 5 damage if you are level 5: ALT F4 will kill your game, so does closing your browser or reloading and such but other than that you are safe.

Under rating threshold (show) i love this game concept, but it could use a bit of polish:... the small size and contrast and pixelation kinda make it hard to look at. and..needs to mark numbers with scroll wheel (i really dislike using keyboard, thats why i only play mouse only games).

Under rating threshold (show) A couple of additional controls/features would take this from being an excellent game to a game that was a delight to play - "mouse drag" clearing - being able to clear an area by dragging your mouse across it rather than clicking cell by cell. - "two button clear" being able to clear all surrounding squares by clicking both mouse buttons (as in minesweeper) - Auto-clear on level up - if you mark a square (as a 3 say) then when you hit that level those squares should auto clear They are only minor additions to what is a great concept but would bring the game to a new level :)
