Mine Sweeper 3D is, just as the name suggests, a version of the classic game Mine Sweeper with the addition of depth.
The added challenge that 3D brings to this classic formula makes this an altogether new experience for even a veteran Mine Sweeper player. The number 6 on a box was daunting in the original, how will you deal with a 16?
The classic Minesweeper game is played by disclosing the contents of a box on a grid. This will display a number which represents how many bombs (or mines) are touching that box. In Mine Sweeper 3D the game is the same only instead of a two dimensional grid, there is a three dimensional cube. You can navigate through the cube from the first person perspective. You can fly through the cube, and split layers apart to get deep inside.
How to play
The goal is to place a flag on all of the mines and disclose all of the other boxes.
The basic game play of Mine Sweeper 3D is the same as the original Mine Sweeper. You use your mouse and left clicking on boxes to display their contents. When you suspect a box may contain a mine you can place a flag on it to mark it as a mine location by right clicking (command click for 1 button mice). If you right click again it will mark the box with a question mark indicating you think there might be a mine there and have to come back to the spot later. Right clicking again sets the box back to normal.
You will notice that boxes may contain numbers. Those numbers indicate how many mines are touching that particular box. Boxes are considered touching if they are directly adjacent, including on angles and off corners. If a box is not on the outside edge of the game cube it can have up to 26 other boxes in contact with it.
