Instructions

The rules of this game are similar to Minesweeper. However, clicking a mine does not result in a loss. Players have to figure out where the mines are by revealing contents inside the cells and using the hints inside. There are 3 types of cells: Blank cells, numbered cells and mines.

If players reveal a blank cell, all the 8 cells surrounding it are revealed. If one or more of the 8 cells is blank, it will behave like players revealed it, sometimes causing an (immediate) chain reaction. Numbered cells indicate how many mines are in the 8 cells surrounding it. If a mine is revealed, the tower will drop for a certain length and results in a miss. The game is lost if an unrevealed blank cell or numbered cell drops to the bottom.

Controls

  • Left click on a cell: Reveal the content inside the cell.
  • Left click on a numbered cell with all its nearby mines "flagged": Reveal all remaining cells around.
  • Left click on an item: Activate the item.
  • Right click on a blank cell: The cell will be marked with a flag. If clicked for a second time when ? marks are on, the flag will turn into a "?" which indicates that the player is not sure about whether that cell has a mine or not. Clicking another time will turn the cell blank.
  • Space (while pointing on a blank cell): Same as right click.
  • Left click on the "Skip" button or the down arrow button on keyboard: Cause the tower to drop faster. Useful when players have finished the entire field.
  • Left click on the "Pause" button or the "P" on the keyboard: Pause the game.
  • Left click on the "? Mark On/Off" button: Turns on/off the use of ? marks
