General information

  • Groupname: microsweeper
  • Users: pmachata
  • Description:

    MicroSweeper is Minesweeper-like game implemented in Java and intended for J2ME-capable (MIDP 2.0, CLDC 1.1) hand-held devices. It provides an additional determinism: a game mode where all mine locations can be deduced from neighborhood count and you are not forced to place a guess. It has some extra goodies: walls, 4, 6 and 8-neighborhood boards, and wrap-around (torus) boards.

    The game is licensed under the GPL 3. It needs MIDP and CLDC libraries to build, and a non-free preverifier has to be run on built binaries. All of these are available (free as in beer) in WTK, SUN's Wireless Toolkit package. As far as I know, there is no free implementation of these, and in particular they are not part of SUN's recently freed java package. I checked the following document, and it seems that this state of the matters doesn't interfere with GPL 3: (Check "New System Libraries Exception" in particular.)

    The game doesn't use any other (free or non-free) libraries. It uses GNU Make for automating the build process and OpenJDK's javac and jar are used to do the compilation and packaging. A preprocessing using GNU M4 and Python takes place during the building process.





    This will be the main page of the game. It will contain description of the project itself, as well as where and how to get binaries, how to get the source and build it, how to contact the development team (me), there will be a couple screenshots, etc.
