Tel #: Not telling..!

I know that there are a few variations of the (in)famous mine 
sweeper type game available for the ST but I have only played one 
and thought it was pretty unplayable. I knew (thought) I could 
(probably) do better.

I have written a few programs that are available in the public 
domain before and being a budding software engineer (student) I
decided to write a game based on mine sweeper but different. 

You may find this text a little bit (very) hard to decifer but I 
have had a rough Christmas and still have a hang over from last 
Christmas and am going to get ready to go out again in a minute.

I suppose I had better write something about this program. It is 
pretty self explainatory really. All you need to know is how to 
start and stop it. Double click on blast_it.prg and look at the 
intro screen. Press a particular mouse button (I forgot which but 
trial and error wont take long..!). Click on all of the squares 
you can but avoid the mines. The many (three) instructions are on 
the intro page and it really does not need explaining. You just 
press  to quit anywhere in the program.

There are two cheats in this program. If you want to know them 
mail me and I will tell you but here are the clues: 

1) There is an element of chance at the start of every game (where 
   do I click first?). I know..!

2) What do I press to clear a difficult (or easy) level and get 
   to another one?. I know..!

These clues should be enough but mail me anyway with constructive 
(destructive) criticism please. I much prefere E-mail but snail 
mail will suffice if you dont require a reply..!

Please run this program in LOW res as it will work in medium res 
but only uses two colours and the left half of the screen. It was 
never designed for medium res. I think that is all you need but 
didn't want to know. Have fun....
