Blech. Despise the limited-clicks mechanic.

This is not a Minesweeper clone in any capacity.

The mechanic is very very similar to a game called Oasis.

I beat the game. Rank D! :-(
It's a thoroughly enjoyable game. More like Mamonosweeper when you unlock Booby traps.

This is something good to know at the beginning of the game:
1 Star - Defeat the Shogun (This gets you Rank D)
+ 1 Star - Maximum Upgrade on any Stat
+ 1 Star - Won a level with at least 10 Clicks left
+ 1 Star - Won the Campaign without any defeats
+ 1 Star - Unlock all 3 Companions
Getting 5 Stars multiplies your final score by 5 which gets you a higher Rank.

Reminds me a little more of a simplified version of Famicom/Advance Wars, with the "fog of war" and autobattle system.

Yeah, nerdook has made some amazing games. I was actually pretty disappointed with this one, but only because they set a really high bar for themselves.

A few bugs, but a nifty little game.
