Micesweeper

by alissa.

Find the cheese while carefully avoiding the mousetraps. A cute and cozy version of minesweeper, from the creator of the previously featured Worryspider in Picnic Panic.

The changes here to the usual minesweeper rules are subtle, but really interesting! You lose the ability to just probe any arbitrary space, but to make up for it, you get more information about what’s on the board thanks to the picross style borders. It leads to some interesting little puzzles that feel very different from the usual minesweeper ones.

It’s a small detail, but I really like how the game allows you to make mistakes – hitting a “mine” isn’t game over – you just lose a life, and then you carry on. No big deal. Sometimes that’s exactly what you want, you know?
