Crimesweeper is based from the popular puzzle game, Minesweeper, but it has its own twist. Crimesweeper is a puzzle game wherein the player takes the role of a criminal, and the game’s main objective is to avoid being caught by the police. The overall layout of the game is like Minesweeper, wherein there is a grid or a plane filled with small boxes. At the start of the game, the player (the criminal) will have to choose a box from the grid as his “hideout”. After choosing, the boxes beside the box that the player chooses will be flipped, and will reveal numbers that signify the number of police that is nearby. Using these clues, the player will have to evade the police (the mines) in order to win the game.
