How To Play:
Surprisingly enough, this is much like the game Mine Sweeper that
Microsoft packages with Windows 3.x and Windows 95. The object of the game is
to discover all of the 99 swine hidden in the Swine Field. To do this, you
have to flag them all and uncover every other spot on the board. The game will
end when you either 1) flag all 99 swine and uncover every other spot or 2) if
you expose one of the swine. When you click on a square and it is not a swine,
one of two things will happen. Either a number will show up where you clicked
or an area will clear and a bunch of numbers will show up. The numbers refer
to how many swine surround that square.
Suppose I click on a square
and a square with a 1 appears. This tells me that one of the 8 surrounding
squares has a swine. When you are sure which square it is, flag it by pressing
the CTRL key and clicking the mouse. If you aren't sure if you are correct, do
that again and a question mark will appear. This can sometimes help if you are
in a jam and can't solve a certain area of the puzzle.
Now here is
something neat. Suppose I click on a square and it reveals a number 2. I flag
the two squares where I think the swine are. Now, CTRL-Click on that original
number 2. If I am correct, all of it's neighbors should clear off for you.
This helps speed up the game a little bit.
Short and sweet:
Mouse-Click exposes a square.
