Larry Ludwig wrote Landmine in 1984 as a clone of the earlier DOS game Relentless Logic.
Landmine reduced the grid from 15x9 to 14x9 and removed sound effects while adding 8 bit CGA (1981) colour. The goal of the game is to navigate from the top left to the bottom right corner using arrow keys and avoiding mines. Landmine claims every game can be solved. A number appears in your current square showing the number of mines touch that square. The game claims to allow the same range of 10 to 40 mines but a bug limits mines to 32.
There are two known releases but both are visually identical with the same gameplay.
Ludwig stated to minesweepergame that he wrote Landmine after seeing Relentless Logic and deciding to improve the game. The game was written in BASIC and uploaded to several Bulletin Board Systems. Since 2000 he has received one cheque for the $10 Shareware donation.
