User guide

In the classic versions of Minesweeper, it may happen early in the game that you click on a square containing a bomb when we had not yet emerged zone, which we would lost without being able to guess that there was a bomb.

In Ka-Boom, when we are in this situation, the bomb does not explode immediately. It appears in the top screen and you have 2 seconds to turn his match by blowing into the microphone.



It is now possible to send your best scores on, and they will appear on this page. For that, you must have configured WiFI on your DS and you have to be closed to an Access Point to the Internet (PC with WiFi modem or WiFi card or WiFi USB dongle).
