Minesweeper 3D

by neosquad - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This was not only my first Ludum Dare, but also my first time touching Unity and C# so bare with it :)

I did not have time to figure out how to write a tutorial, so this will have to do:

WASD rotate the camera around the cube, Q and E tilt the camera. Mouse wheel zooms in and out. Left click a box to clear it and reveal what's inside, right click for !, and ? to mark boxes. Click the Reset button at the top to reset the puzzle.

What I would like to add: when you find a bomb, it forces you to reset. A victory condition in the center of the cube. Intro text and win/loss text.

I believe it works on all platforms, but can only test it on Windows.

I don't know how to remove the context menu on right click in web browser. the download is just a .rar file with a .exe you run inside. There's no installation, just run it from there

Nice puzzle game ! To remove the context menu : Build settings -> Player settings -> Resolution and presentation -> choose the one that said No Context Menu ;)

This was a very cool idea. Great twist on the classic minesweeper game. Although the game doesn't reset upon selecting a bomb.

It would be nice if all the blank cubes adjacent to each other would disappear. Other than that, I thought it was awesome.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
