I'm in love with old games and always wanted to re-make some for Instagram in Spark AR. Though a lot of people are not aware of real retro games, I decided to make something almost everyone knows — the Minesweeper game from Windows.
Concept and gameplay
This is a classic logic game with a simple strategy to understand, yet sometimes hard to win. Every opened cell in the field is empty or numbered. The number shows how many mines are around the cell. A player has to analyze the numbers, determine where are the mines, and flag the cells. Sometimes a player has to open cells it randomly cause it's impossible to determine. The UI allows to move, rotate, and scale the field. A single tap opens a cell, long tap flags.
The next step will be harder. I'm planning to build Minesweeper as a cubical surface and put a player inside it or just leave a cube on a plane tracker.
