Introduction to Minesweeper

Minesweeper is a game of exploring squares on a grid that do not contain mines while avoiding those that do. Your task is to find the rules of the squares.

Origin of the game

The game was released in 1973 inspired by a classic game called Cube. Over the years, Minesweeper has gone through many iterations and tweaks, but its core gameplay remains the same: defuse bombs hidden beneath a grid of squares without detonating them. It is one of the default programs installed on most operating systems under development today.

Gameplay mechanics

You are shown a network of covered squares, some of which conceal hidden mines. Each square contains a number that indicates the number of adjacent squares that contain mines, giving you valuable clues to help them navigate the grid. With each move, you must carefully analyze available information and make strategic decisions to avoid discovering mines and ending the game early.

There are many levels in the game

The game gives you three difficulty levels to choose from, catering to both beginners and seasoned veterans. The easy level features an 8x8 grid with 10 mines scattered throughout, providing a gentle introduction to the game mechanics. The intermediate level raises the stakes with a 16x16 grid and 40 mines, providing a bigger challenge for those looking to test their skills. Additionally, you have the option to customize the board size and number of mines, allowing for countless variations and challenges.
