One day I was playing Minesweeper, and I got upset. I had to guess between two spots for the last mine, and I guessed wrong! I lost the whole level, just because of a lost lottery. You know what would be cool? If Minesweeper was a tactics game, and you didn't lose the entire level for a single mistake. Thus, Minesweeper Tactics was born (Edit: It was later christened as Katja's Abyss: Tactics for legal reasons)! Now you can make many mistakes before losing! Grin

Katja's Abyss: Tactics has a campaign mode and an infinite mode with 3 difficulties:
Easy
Normal
Deadly

Since this is a beta build of the game, try them all out. See how much more difficult they are/feel. Is Deadly unbeatable? Is Easy too trivial? I need your feedback.

All other feedback is welcome, but I'm particularly interested to know if the use of each unit type is clear. Is resource collection straight-forward? What aspects were not clear immediately (and which remain a mystery)?
