DESCRIPTION
       A  game of logical deduction against the	clock. The purpose of the game
       is to find the location of the hidden bombs in a	grid.  Each of the lo-
       cations	in the grid is initially covered, by uncovering	a locations, a
       number or a bomb	will be	revealed underneath.  If a  bomb  is  revealed
       then  the  game is finished.  A number indicates	the number of adjacent
       locations that contain bombs.  Locations	that have not  been  uncovered
       but are thought to contain bombs	can be marked as such so that they can
       be identified.

       There is	a choice of hexagonal, square or triangular units that make up
       the grid, the level of difficulty increasing as the number of sides de-
       creases.	 In all	cases the grids	are of the same	size and  contain  the
       same number of bombs for	the same levels.

       There are three levels to the game:

       Easy   8	by 8 grid with 10 bombs.

       Medium 16 by 16 grid with 40 bombs.

       Difficult
	      30 by 16 grid with 99 bombs.

       A high score table is maintained	for each of the	levels for each	of the
       grid types, storing the username, the time to complete the  puzzle  and
       the date	that it	was finished.

MOUSE OPERATION
       The  game  is played with the mouse, with all three buttons having dif-
       ferent actions.

       Left Button
	      Uncover the current location if it is hidden or uncover all sur-
	      rounding	locations marked as not	containing bombs if the	square
	      is already uncovered. The	first selection	made in	a game is  al-
	      ways a 'safe' square.

       Middle Button
	      Uncover  all  surrounding	 locations that	are not	marked as con-
	      taining a	bomb.

       Right Button
