Just liek the other players have said, the snake transformation was really surprising and cool, whcih was greatly supported by the stellar animations, like the snake slithering inside the cave! The sound effects were cool and gameplay was great, throwing a twist o nthe normal Snake game. Although in the beginning I almost quitted bc I didnt notice that the stone pieces were the number of mines nearby, my bad.

Developer

Glad you stuck it out and enjoyed the game!

Submitted

That was different! Really interesting concept! Loved that starting view. And I really enjoyed all the pixel art. The animations are easy to overlook, but I def noticed. The snakes slither into the cave, the bird flying down and landing, the miner rushing into the cave. And all of those done using a pitch black silhouette, very- very cool. Awesome entry! ^^

Developer

Thanks for the feedback, yes a very talented artist (not me) I agree! :)

Submitted

Really cool concept! Theming minesweeper like that was really clever and the snake animations were great! Overall, a very solid game :-) 

Developer

This was a clever mashup, and I like how it integrated the wildcard. Overall it felt really polished, and the art and sound style worked well. I really liked the color palette.

My favourite game from the jam! Really unique concept with a strong sense of style

Developer

Thank you very much!

Turns out my wife's really good at minesweeper. I am not.

The change of appearance after death was a great twist!

Developer

Haha, I'm also only the second best player in our household!

Thanks for playing and commenting. :)

This one was an absolute stand-out entry. After a few tries, I finally got this score.

So many cool touches. The silhouettes in the cutscenes looked great, and I got a real sense of trepidation each time I mined a spot I wasn't quite sure of. The explosions gave me a jump a couple of times, too!

All in all, a really cool entry. Great job!

Developer

Thanks heaps for playing and posting your score! 123 is a pretty good length, must have good snake skills!

Submitted

A really great idea and well executed! I like the cutscenes but my biggest criticism of this game is that I have to mash/wait through them every single time I play,  would really love if they could be skippable or just faster to mash through.

Developer

Thanks for playing. :) Yep I totally agree, such a simple quality-of-life addition that should have been there!

Awesome game.
Super refined presentation and the snake reveal was a great suprise :)

Developer

Haha yes that's a nice little animation, we like it. :) Thanks for playing and commenting.

Submitted

The changes after the death really surprised me ! The art style is great, and the music too. The only default is that the more you play the more mining sound get annoying.

Developer

Thanks for playing and for the feedback.. I tried to vary the pitch on the mining sound effect but tend to agree it gets repetitive.

Submitted

Wonderful art style, splendid music and sounds!

Absolute feeling of the finished game!

For several starts, there were minor problems with the generation of mines.

Astonishing game, awesome idea!

Developer

Thanks for playing/commenting!

Curious what the mine generation bugs were and if you have a screenshot maybe? :)

Submitted

Luckily, it only happened once and it didn't happen again. Didn't take a screenshot ☹

Developer

No worries, thanks anyway!

Submitted

really fun game, a really great idea that goes perfectly in line with the theme, on top of that, the gameplay controls and graphics feel very nice to experience hand in hand. overall, well done

Developer

Cheers, glad you liked it!

Submitted

First of all, the idea is brilliant, but the execution is even better! The art is outstanding, and the game overall feels really well-polished and fun to play. Great work! 

Developer

Developer

Thank you very much!

Submitted

First of all, who’d’ve guessed how well minesweeper and snake would mash together?! Also, the art and the music were fantastic, I absolutely loved the silhouetted introduction. Great job team!

Developer

Thanks for the comment and for playing. @mythical_water did all the animations and pixel art, very talented!

Submitted

This was fantastic! Loved the style and modern takes on two classics.

Developer

Thank you, we were happy with the concept and glad it comes together well. :)

Great art! The combination of snake and minesweeper is a really interesting idea and I think it works really well here.
