By switching to a first-person perspective, of course!
First-Person Minesweeper is exactly what it says on the box. It's Minesweeper - but in first-person. You do still have to click on a tile to mark it as a mine. But instead of clicking on tiles to clear them away, you actually have to step on them. If there's no mine under foot, you're safe; if there is, you're gone.
Sure, it's still pretty abstract, but if you hanker for a more immersive take on Minesweeper, here it is.
