3D Minefield V1.1 (May 21,
3D Minefield overview
3D Minefield is a refreshing concept of the old minesweeper game.
It is a challenging game of strategy and luck, taking its payers to the wonders of 3D environment.
The 3D minesweeper game is based on the classical minesweeper game with adjustable parameters that allow you to change and complicate the game.
Changing the classic two-dimensional game to an original three-dimensional game has added to the playability
without changing the basic game logic.
The object of 3D Minefield is to locate all the mines as quickly as possible without
uncovering any of them. If you uncover a mine, you lose the game.
To play 3D Minefield
On the Game menu, click New.
To start the timer, click any cube on the playing
l You can uncover a cube by clicking it. If you uncover a mine, you lose the game.
l If a number appears on a cube, it indicates how many mines are in the six cubes that surround the numbered one. As showed below, it indicates there are two mines existed in the six cubes that surround the numbered one.
l To mark a cube you suspect contains a mine, right-click it.
l If you are uncertain about a cube, right-click it twice to mark it with a question mark (?). Later, you can either mark the cube as a mine or remove the markings by right-clicking the cube again once or twice.
l If you have marked all the mines around a numbered cube, you can uncover the remaining cubes around it by clicking the numbered cube with the left and right mouse buttons simultaneously. If not all mines surrounding the numbered cube have been marked, the all cubes surrounding the numbered cube will flash when the numbered cube is clicked with both buttons simultaneously.
l In order not to influence the eyesight, if all the mines around the numbered cube are correctly indicated, the cube would disappear automatically.
l The game area consists of the playing field, a mine counter, and a game timer. The game timer indicates how long the
current game has taken, and stops when you finish the game. The mine
counter shows the number of mines remaining.
