The gameplay of Minesweeper

Disclose all grid cells

Actually, the playing rules of this game are as simple as the ones of Mahjong Alchemy or Apple Worm. In this game, you can see a grid of 400 cells. Each cell contains a number or mine. Your mission is to click on any cell to disclose it. If this cell contains the number, you will score 50 points. Moreover, if you can find many numbers at the same time, you will get more points. In contrast, if this cell contains a mine, the game is over. Therefore, you must try to find as many numbers as possible to gain the highest score and evade the mines. Note that you can mark with a flag all grid cells where you think there is mine. The game will end when all numbers are found. Besides, you should look at the timer at the right bottom of the screen. You have only 10 minutes. You must be quick to explore all numbers before the time is over. Try to determine if each cell is safe to open. Try not to miscalculate if you do not want to lose soon.
