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.
