About

Asteroids Minesweeper is definitely not your typical old school minesweeper. We took the classic game and added some twists and turns that will challenge even the most knowledgeable of physics- based champions! You work as a teleworker at Abstract Space Industry Corp to mine asteroids... but things happen to go terribly wrong! Now you'll get to experience minesweeper in a whole new light; play in a three dimensional world with complex game changing rules. You'll get to discover new effects and abilities in order to trim an asteroid. But be careful, don't get lost while orientating in a full 3D environment of explosive mines!Challenges include
  • Tutorial levels
  • Random-generated levels for infinite replayability
  • Levels with a cubes vertical counter, for deeper cogitation on where the mines are located
  • Levels with mines moving from a cube to another, for more challenge!
  • Levels with matching/entangled cubes, which have the same state!
Other characteristics
  • Designed to work on PC or on tablet alike, with several different and combinable ways to play: using buttons, picking cubes with the mouse/finger, or orientating a 3D cursor with a keyboard or a Xbox 360 joypad
  • For hackers and programmers: Fully moddable. The game is using an early new version of the Loving Cube Engine and as such can be modified by simply editing some Lua files
  • A scenario in which you work as a teleworker of Abstract Space Industry Corp to mine asteroids, until things go wrong...
  • A game made by one developer alone :)

Asteroids Minesweeper reviews and comments

Translated by

A Minesweeper in 3D, with a small "Story" at a small Price. Pro: Brone Classic Minesweeper to the 3rd Dimension. And it works well. Different Gimmicks in the individual Levels or Levels. Fairer, if nous quite crisp, difficulty. Custom-level with freely selectable Settings. Beautiful Soundtrack that, at least for me, didn't get annoying even after "longer" hearing. Fair Price. The Story, even if it's actually rather irrelated, is a nice Giving. Kontra: Camera Control takes a little getting used to. (Especially when it comes to the Z-axis.) The Game is mostly run in a rather small or short Campaign, which makes it quite short overall. Verdict: For anyone who can have fun on Minesweeper, I can only recommend it warmest. It's not very long, but the little Gimmicks and the Fact that there are still the custom levels to keep playing make up for it more than just. Those who have never been really warm with the traditional Minesweeper will probably have less of their real Joy in this.

I like the fan of the minesweeper, the game liked. But at the moment it has some problems not related to the gameplay. In General, the passage of the game is quite short and not stressful. There is a customizable mode. Basic game mechanics slightly different from the usual minesweeper, it has interesting modifications. Random is also present, but the developer tried to smooth it. There is a right to a few mistakes in each level and I would say that here it is justified. Now I'll write in detail about the problems of the game and the plot. To begin with, there is a problem with running the game-then it does not like my keyboard, then it did not find the launched Steam. I Had to create such a shortcut: "(Steam Folder) \Staamapps\comon\authoroids Mynesweeper\app_vsa2008gl.exe"-nokeyboardlayout In the process of passing my character someone sent e-mail (s), but I still did not understand where to read them. There was Also a link on which something had to be, but was removed due to copyright infringement. Because of this, the local scene looks quite pathetic. Those who want to collect all the achievements a little hint: quietly pass all levels, make money up to 500,000 in the mode of "custom" levels (it is better to do backup saving), complete the contract, and then see:) The Save is in a folder (drive letter): \Users\ (user name) \Appdata\roming\asteroidsmingweeper To Start the walkthrough again will have to delete save. DAT Total: Interesting gameplay without jambs-This is the most important. The Plot could not be added to the game. It would Not interfere with the regime of increased complexity and acachivki under this case.
