mathsweeper [browser]

ZBlip is back with another Minesweeper inspired puzzler. In Mathsweeper each blue covered square either has the number of mines indicated or is safe. Click and hold to flag a mine square. Just click to remove a safe square.

Another good exercise for my brains! Love it.

Simple concept, actually quite challenging. Like it!

Brilliant, just enough challenge to keep me coming back for more.

My only complaint is that the "Next Level" prompt is a bit misleading, as the levels appear to be roughly the same difficulty after the tutorial.

At first I thought there wasn't much to this, but turns out to be pretty fun! It's a nice twist on classic Minesweeper.

there's a reason you right click to place flags in minesweeper. to lose an essentially free level due to poor controls really kills enjoyment.

@Bronson Click the options menu in the lower left corner. Select Controls > Right to flag.

There are also lots more levels of Mine of Sight.
I am on 128 & don't see a safe way to resolve the last few.

I love minesweeper & mine of sight, but not this.
For some reason I don't get the logic here.
For example: how can a 1 have multiple bombs next to it ?
Either this game is totally broken or the rules are not explained.

I also was quite confused with this game.
Don't confuse the "covers" with the real clues underneath.
It took me a bit to notice that the numbers change.
Also like minesweeper there are no set levels.
As it is just randomly generated.
Don't forget to try the negative option too.

Sorry for suggesting the negative option, as it is broken.
I keep getting clue 0 with no solution.
For example: a 1 flagged & a 3 cover. or 3,-1,2 all covered.
Clearly there is no way to get 0, so the generator is bugged.

Oops I guess I was wrong.
You can always get 0 if you remove all covers.

Well now I can laugh at my wife, cause she can't do trial & error on this one.
