In Development: MineSweeper

Hi all,
I recreated MineSweeper for the Playdate.
Currently the game has 4 levels of difficulty: Easy, Normal, Hard and Insane.

Unfortunately "new users" can't upload games, will check for a work-around

I made a download link available trough Dropbox


Very fun! I really like that it’s just a single screen and doesn’t scroll! It makes the orientation much more “confident”…

I noticed a few minor design things:

  1. The icon for flagging - it’s weird that it’s a checkmark :ballot_box_with_check: instead of a flag icon… :triangular_flag_on_post:
  2. The font for the number “2” is a bit weird… not sure what it is… maybe too “boxy”?
  3. When “standing” over a box, before revealing/flagging it, it looks like a flat square - Ie the same as squares with zero mines around them (Ie no number) - it’s very confusing…

Thanks for the feedback, I’m still playing around with the art style of the game and learning the SDK at the same time.

First I want to figure out how to efficiently initiate the game, noticed some frame drops.
