3D Minesweeper: Be Mine!

Mine-sweeping without a mine-detector thing. Is this a critique of the supply situation in Iraq? Probably not.

Continuing my march through the tips folder, I hit upon Nir Gooday – and his brother’s – game. It’s Minesweeper. In 3D. It’s 3D Minesweeper. Which is the sort of thing which strikes you as totally pointless… but then you realise there’s a spark of genius here. There’s something oddly compulsive of taking that step. I mean, it’s become such a social staple that we don’t even think about of its name any more. Minesweeper. A game about stepping on mines, and actually physically doing it actually provokes a tiny shiver of anticipation. Alas, it’s an idea whose execution sells itself short – it demands bangs and whistles one goes off, the full on explosion and shaker-speaking noise. Add that, Nir, and you’re away. Make it turn-off-able for the wimps. Play here. There’s also a facebook app version, if that’s your sort of thing.
