A Minesweeper clone


Version 1.1.2
Released 2013-10-29
O/S Windows 2000 and later


Development of BoobyTrap! is frozen.

This program was written as a programming exercise back in 1999 and it shows in the source code – I wouldn't write that code now! BoobyTrap! received only one main update in 2008 when the help system was changed. Other than that there have only been a few bug fix releases.

In October 2013 the program received its final update to make it compile with Delphi XE and support the Unicode Windows API.

If you want to take over development, please do so. The source code is available below.

There is no support available for this program. Please do not report any bugs or contact me about it.


BoobyTrap! is a clone of the Minesweeper game, programmed in Delphi Pascal. The program has user-definable play areas and has high score tables.

The BoobyTrap! source code is archived in the ddab-archive/boobytrap repository on GitHub. The read-me file of that project explains how to get the final source code and binary release.

See Compiling.txt in the GitHib repo for details of how to compile the program and its dependencies.
