How does this....work? I click on squares, assuming that that would be how I place mines, but nothing happens.

There are directions if you click on the question mark in the upper right. Basically you have to set a level to start, either 8x15 or 16x30.

Bizarre. And absolutely brilliant. This makes minesweeper fresh and exciting again!

My best time on the 8x15 is 14, and on the 16x30 it's 135.

The game is okay. I just love seeing Flash Friday return, even if it's technically Monday.

Now with "wormhole mode," where some of the squares are inaccessible. Wormhole mode restores the classic Minesweeper feature of the occasional non-unique solution.
