The Hurt Locker Sweeper

Explosive Ordinance Disposal

Play The Game!!


Minesweeper clone, named after the film "The Hurt Locker" (

(The name and the images are just for fun, because they deal with mines/bombs in that film. So this is a parody. All copyright belongs to their creators.)

Unlike the original Minesweeper, which had "Board Cycles", this version is actually random. Even I don't know beforehand where the mines would be!

Stretch Goals

  1. add requirejs (so that index.html won't have too many script tags)
  2. find a way to do event delegation for clicking the tiles. document.getElementById("board").addEventListener("click", function(e) { e.preventDefault() alert('hello') alert( "$(this).attr('id') = " + $(this).attr('id') ) var test = $('id') if ( $(this).attr('id') === $('id') ) { alert("$('id') = " + $('id')); } }) instead of $(this).on('click', function(e){...}, also this will get rid of this error msg: game-logic.js:25 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'NaN' of undefined which happens when anything aside from the tiles are clicked.
  3. modes = easy, medium, difficult
    • easy = 9x9 board; 10 mines
    • medium = 16x16 board; 40 mines
    • difficult = 16x30 board; 99 mines
    • currently, only on "easy mode"
  4. add timer
  5. add ability to place a flag with right click
  6. make the board smaller
  7. do this in React???? (maybe)
