Elemines is an EFL minesweeper clone.


The object of the game is to clear an abstract minefield without detonating a
mine. The game is played by revealing squares of the grid, by clicking them 
with a mouse. If a square containing a mine is revealed, you lose the game. 
Otherwise, a digit is revealed in the square, indicating  the number of 
adjacent squares that contain mines.

How to play:

Left click to uncover a tile
Right to add/remove a flag
Middle click to clear around once the correct number of mines have been flagged.


On the command line, you can change the number of mines in the field with the
-m option. Default is 12. The board is 10x10 so mine limit is 99. You can
change the mines in the game by clicking on the 'Config.' button.

An alternate default-big theme is available, with twice more bombes and tiles:

  $ elemines -t=default-big


Score is based on the mine number and the time to complete the task. It's
compute like (board_size * mines - time). There are two categories for scores:
'Standard' if you played using the default mine number of 12, and 'Custom' for
the other cases.


To have sound in elemines, your EFL must have been compiled with sound support.
