* custom levels.
* 1/50s precision clock.
* multiple language selection

* multilanguage!
* some bug were fixed.

Overall Rating: 7.8
  • 8Better than the rectangular minesweeper! Nice feel. Even the gui buttons are hexagons! :)
  • 7On OSX! Playable, fun; graphics are a bit simple, mildly odd colors, but gameplay seems clear and well-executed. 2nd the request for easier mine customization, but overall, great work!
  • 8I think it'd be better suited to default to a 640x480 window or so. It's got everything a minesweeper game needs. It'd be nicer if you could just hold the mouse button down instead of clicking buttons repeatedly when customizing settings.
