This Free Minesweeper Bullet Hell Mash-Up Feels Very Appropriate For 2020

2020 has been a hard year, and with many families in the US not doing their usual Thanksgiving catch-ups so as to stay safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and many of us have not been able to get our hands on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X ahead of the holiday season. But we can find comfort in the little joys in life–like clever browser game Artemis’ Minesweeper, which gives an old classic a new twist.

Artemis’ Minesweeper, which takes a classic game most of us are familiar with (Minesweeper) and adds a bullet-dodging twist, is a great way to not only pass the time. It’s also a game that resonates harder in a year like this, where every little thing was made just a little bit harder, and where keeping our distance has been important.

The big difference, of course, is that Artemis’ Minesweeper is a lot of fun. The game, by Namauchi Tamanegi, has variable difficulty depending on how stressful you want it to be, and if you’ve spent a lot of time with the old Microsoft freeware version of Minesweeper you’ll appreciate the extra challenge–and the heart system, which eliminates the one-hit kills.

You can play or download the game through itch.
