I’ve been going through a Minesweeper tutorial as part of a review I’m doing on Emanuele Feronato’s recently released book. Going back to a topic I started on games that could do with a makeover – Minesweeper is certainly a candidate. I’ve never been a huge fan of the game – but since it just doesn’t seem to want to die maybe something can be done with it to make it more interesting. I’ve found some examples with Mole Control and Zombie Minesweeper – but these deviate too far from the simple gameplay of the original for my liking. For one, I wouldn’t have an avatar on-screen – I’d keep the direct approach of click/tap a tile to reveal what’s underneath and since Frogtoss Games have beaten me to the punch by including zombies I’ll have to do something completely original to top that – so Nazi Zombie Minesweeper it is!
