Welcome to SweepOut, the online, competitive MineSweeper.

Mines have never been so much fun.


Requirement:

-a TCP/IP stack. This is mandatory, this game CAN'T be played offline.
-Since it needs a TCP/IP stack, you need some extra ram (the game itself needs
around 350 to 650 KB (OCS / AGA)).
-Os 2.04 as minimum.
-A fast processor? It's done with Amos, and I did it on 060 at 80, so I have no
idea how it runs on slow CPU.


Getting started:

First, you need to create an account to play, with a name and a password. Write
down this password since at the date of the release, you won't be able to
retrieve it if you forget it. Your account will be lost forever.

Please don't create multiple accounts. It doesn't offer any interest anyway.


Gameplay:

This is a Minesweeper, should I explain it? Your goal is to mark all bombs. When
you left click on a case, you see the amount of bombs around this case, from 0
to 8. With all those numbers, you have to guess where the bombs are, and secure
them with right click (Amiga checkmark!). Once all bombs are marked and all
cases are opened, the game switches to the next level.


Scoring:

This is where SweepOut is different from any other minesweeper. On top of your
screen you can see a "bonus multiplier" bar. This bonus grows when you finish a
level, and shrinks when you left click on a bomb. Higher you keep this bonus,
more scoring you do! So take your time and make no mistake.

Keep in mind time consumes your bonus, and the level also affect it a lot!
At level 1, the bonus range goes up to 32x. At level 32, it's up to 1024x!

The game ends when this bonus reach 0 (gameover).


Game Over:

When the game ends, you can do many things with your score:
-You can update your old one if the new one is better.
-You can also sacrifice your score to "blast" the top player! So if the top
score is too hard for you to beat... just destroy it !!!

This online factor gives a great interest boost!

Minesweeper has never been so much fun!
