A demake of the classic minesweeper.

The game cartridge's filesize is just 1024 bytes of compressed code (including the string-encoded sprites)

> RULES / CONTROLS:

  • left click to reveal a tile
    • if you hit a mine, you lose
    • revealed tiles will show a number, telling how many of their 8 neighbors are mines
  • right click to flag a tile
  • reveal all non-mine tiles to win!
  • click the smiley face to restart

> TIPS

  • left click + right click (simultaneous) to auto-reveal neighbors, if the number of nearby flags matches the number on the tile you clicked
  • mines left and a timer are displayed in the top corners

Thanks to the following people + tools for helping make this possible!

  • timp - shrinko8: compresses slightly better than pico8 itself, and made it easy to quickly see compression statistics while working outside pico8
  • carlc - pixavis: let me play around and understand exactly how pico8's compression works
  • JadeLombax - graphics tutorial: I used a modified version of this RLE compressor to encode my sprites
  • zep - pico-8: the coziest game engine 🐱
  • Liquidream - pico1k jam: these jams are too much fun :)
