Minelayer is a strange game that at first appears to be a prototype to Carr Software's more well-known Islands of Danger (aka Rescue) game. However, the game mentions Islands of Danger and provides media quotes about that game, so it must have been made/released afterwards. In any case, Minelayer seems to actually be an experiment with the Islands of Danger engine, where instead of shooting the enemy bases, you simply ram into them with your ship. To stop the enemy missiles you drop mines. The screen also switches into 40x25 text ode when playing the actual game for some reason which means you can see less of the map. Generally seems less fun than the Islands of Danger games which may explain why it's not even mentioned on the Carr Software website.
