Projects / freesweep


freesweep is a console minesweeper-style game written in C for *nix. The ncurses library is preferred, but standard System V curses will work almost perfectly. Features include boards up to 1024x1024 and saving & loading of boards. Planned features include mouse support through ncurses, shared and individual "best times" files, and color.
