SCORE = Density of mines / Time to clear
Density of mines = Number of mines / Area of field
Area of field = width * height

Then, instead of having separate high scores list for each size/number of
mines kind of playing field, have one high scores list where everyone is
ranked by score, that is, find a way to calculate a score from the playing
conditions and the time (like the one above), then rank the scores rather
than rank the times.
