Sweeper2H is a minesweeper game played on a hyperbolic plane. The game goal is to find out the locations of the mines.
Drag the circular playing field and tap heptagonal tiles to open them. If you open all the tiles that have no mine, you win. Hitting a mine by mistake, you lose the game.
If a digit is revealed, it indicates the number of mines hidden under the adjacent tiles. You can't open flagged tiles. When you double-tap a digit, the surrounding tiles will open if you have correctly flagged.
Tap a horizontal arrow twice to start the next game.
You can adjust the position of playing field with the vertical arrows (iPhone and iPod touch only).
Tapping "Sets" enables the following settings.
Tap "Battle" or "Comp.", and enjoy split-screen multiplayer with your friend. In the battle mode, number of taps will be each player's score. In the competition mode, number of opened tiles is the score. Of course you lose if you dig up a mine.
"Easy", "Normal" and "Hard" buttons enable you to change the game difficulty.
When "Long P." is selected, you can flag a tile by pressing it long. Selected "Switch", you can toggle between tap-to-open and tap-to-flag by tapping empty space.
You can select "Upright" or "Focus" as the orientation of symbols including the mines, digits and flags.
Improved game graphics.
Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been wanting to play hyperbolic minesweeper for years, and I am not disappointed!
Still room for improvement, but it’s been improving already! Now has the ability to flag mines!
A count of remaining (total - flagged) mines would still be nice though. Or using a projection that would take up more of the screen (though on an iPad it plays well anyway).
Ultimately it’d be fascinating to be able to try different tilings of the plane, but this is a fantastic start!
Thanks so much!
(I was trying to figure out how too write this myself, but I’m not much of a programmer and I didn’t know where to begin with a hyperbolic board.)
Best Game Ever Aside from Hyper Rouge
It never fails to entertain me by breaking my sense of direction which is very good (can navigate most euclidean 3d mazes and navigate 4d ones too!)
I would give this a infinity*i/10 give or take a taxicab universe's pi!
