Pilot Mines is a game for Palm OS, modeled after the X11 minesweeper clone, which in turn was modeled after the original Microsoft's game.
The goal of the game is to uncover all the squares that do not contain mines without being destroyed by tapping on a mine. The location of the mines is discovered by a process of logic. Tapping on the game board will reveal what is hidden underneath the chosen square or squares. Some squares are blank but some contain numbers 1 to 8, each number being the number of mines adjacent to the uncovered square. To help avoid hitting a mine, the location of a suspected mine can be marked by flagging it. Tapping on a covered field while pressing the page up or page down button toggles flagging that field. The game is won once all blank squares have been uncovered without hitting a mine, any remaining mines not identified by flags being automatically flagged by the computer.
Thanks to Dylan Ginsburg for suggesting another controls scheme: instead of using the page up/down keys all the time, the first tap on a covered field will flag it, the second will uncover it. Pressing the page up/down key while tapping a covered field toggles the flag as before. This scheme is selectable via preferences menu - it's called Dylan style controls.
