Play OverviewPlay Overview

Tametsi (2017) is a puzzle game that takes the guesswork out of Minesweeper. Across grids of irregular shapes and tile sizes, you must identify which contain mines using the number clues on and around the grid. Unlike Minesweeper, there's always a thread of information, no matter how obscure or complex to lead you to guaranteed success.

Each level is a grid of cells of varying shapes and sizes arranged in patterns across the screen. To beat the level, you must click on every tile with a mine hidden in it and mine every other tile. Black, excavated tiles show with a number how many adjacent tiles have hidden mines, and outside the grid, there are also numbers which indicate the number of tiles in a row that are hiding mines, and in some stages, the number of mine-containing tiles of certain colours are also noted. You must use this information to gradually work your way through each of the 161 levels in the game.

Unlike Minesweeper which you sometimes have to guess, here you always have all the information you need to reach the solution. The clues can be simple, such as numbers clearly revealing which tiles contain mines, or far more complex, requiring note-taking and analysis of multiple rows and numbers simultaneously to rule out specific cells. Gradually piecing together these bits of information to get to the goal is where the game truly shines, requiring critical analysis of everything and a curious and ambitious technique.

The result is a game that offers a uniquely strategic and tactical twist on a classic formula. Having to consider so much at once and utilise complex strategies to reach the end of a stage can be tense, but it's precisely this tension and difficulty that makes success so rewarding.
