Mamono Sweeper is an engaging Minesweeper variant with elements of a dungeon-crawler. When an empty square is clicked, rather than stating the number of mines in surrounding squares, it states the number of levels of monsters. Monsters range from level 1 to level 5; your character starts at level 1, which means that you can kill level 1 monsters you uncover, but higher-level ones reduce your hit points as many points as the level of the monster. You start with 10 hit points, so can make a few errors (or, in the early stage, survive a randomly uncovered monster or two), but die if you exceed 10.
This produces an interestingly different dynamic from classic Minesweeper; you want to uncover monsters you can survive in order to level up and be able to handle tougher monsters. Each time you level up, you go over the board a second time, looking for monsters you previously avoided but can now clear.
A nice little timewaster.
