Description
Minesweeper is a classic, throwback PC game that provides hours of fun. The game is simple, try to avoid the bombs to clear the minefield to win the game!

Bloated with adware now
by HickeyBE on 2019/12/11 19:24
Used to be a great, fun minesweeper app, but the most recent update has forced tons of ads into the game.
What
by Corbuster101 on 2019/12/08 15:50
I wanted to play minesweeper. This is minesweeper. 10/10
Too easy
by hi74123 on 2019/12/08 01:27
Too easy
Ads
by battery 123456 on 2019/12/07 02:57
Far too many adds. Deleted game after 3 mins of play.
Good learning
by Qccat on 2019/12/04 02:08
It really helps learn mines when I started I couldn’t solve anything but after a little bit of practice I am now really good at it
Great gameplay
by Jeffpn on 2019/12/03 22:14
I’m so glad I found this game. I used to play minesweeper a lot when I got Windows 3.1! This version is very much like Microsoft’s original version. I see a lot of reviews where player’s complain that their first move doesn’t clear half the board. It shouldn’t! Minesweeper is a game that involves both skill and luck. I had the same “issue” playing all those years ago in Windows. In this version, like Windows, the first move is free. It will not be a bomb. After that, you’re on your own. The bombs are randomly placed. You may clear a lot of space, you may not. It’s all part of the game. If you want larger clears, customize the grid yourself. Make the biggest grid you can and put in the fewest bombs possible. You’ll win in just a couple of moves every time. Trophies for everyone!
Doesn’t work
by I ant me wit no vio gms on 2019/12/02 20:21
The numbers don’t always correspond correctly with the number of mines
Oppressive Commercials
by Jr0berts on 2019/12/02 04:06
The free version has the most oppressive commercial policies ever - not worth playing!
Not playing fair!
by Johnny Air Shop on 2019/12/02 00:02
Going down memory lane and remember the game Mine Sweep. Decided to down load this Classic Game. I have played this game millions of time and know how to play it! This game is not playing fair! It killed me many times and I can see the numbers is not correct with the patterns. Sorry I will have delete this game.
The game is broke
by LesionR on 2019/12/01 08:59
The game is so bad! If you played in hard difficulty it always puts you in situations that you have to choose out of luck and need no actual thinking.
update makes it unplayable
by NicholasFair on 2019/12/01 06:12
Used to be my favorite game on my phone, but now I’m looking for another option. The ad frequency—especially compared to what it was before—makes for a jarring experience. Also since this update, I’ve had some problems where I’ll switch to another app mid-game, and when I switch back, my progress will be lost.
The Classic Game
by Kingofmath on 2019/11/29 15:21
It’s the classic game that you remember from the earliest versions of Windows.
Easy to use!
by ScarletBox4 on 2019/11/29 04:33
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to use the right tools. I make less mistakes on the app than clicking the mouse on the computer. 😂
Hate the new update
by kimjuliehansen on 2019/11/28 21:05
This was my favorite game app, but the latest update is beyond annoying (especially the part where it automatically zooms out if you lose a game). Not loving the new settings design either. Lastly, now it asks me to enter my iTunes password every time i open the app. I really hope they’ll change it back, the last version was perfect:/
Don’t like the change
by Dria3250 on 2019/11/28 18:40
This used to be my favorite minesweeper app until the last update. Now it’s always asking me to log in, asking me to pay, giving me pop ups. And at the end of the game it’s kinda nice to see the whole board in challenge mode, but it’s unnecessary in the regular mode. Deleting and getting a new Minesweeper.
WAY too many ads
by misccrl on 2019/11/28 04:39
I got tired of the ads and switched to another app
Apple ID Sign In?
by It's just John on 2019/11/27 13:27
Why, on every startup, is this app asking me to enter my Apple ID!? 🤔 Smells awfully phishy....
Love the game but...
by Jimfromliny on 2019/11/26 22:26
I really love the game ... the ad frequency is not terrible. But (-1) star for repeated boards
Great Game until...
by BTA54 on 2019/11/26 19:28
I played this version of Minesweeper for a few months many times a day. However, after this update, I will not be playing this version any more. When the game first starts, it asks for my Apple password even after I have just put it in. Then, an ad loads up. Then after I lose my first game, another ad shows up. It’s unenjoyable to play. Also the mines load in as a pattern. The same level I have played the past week is the first that is loaded up and I have to purposely lose to get another level pattern. This version of Minesweeper is no longer enjoyable to play.
I just got minesweeper and I love it sooooooooo much
by PENGUIN A🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨 on 2019/11/23 20:10
Awesome game and fun for kids under 14 years of age
Off loaded
by JEN573 on 2019/11/22 22:39
I did enjoy the game until it started making me sign in every time I opened it.
great update
by EQ18 on 2019/11/18 02:12
Wow, new game mode is awesome.
Ads are excessive.
by murdock and face on 2019/11/17 23:21
Just let me pay for the game.
New Update
by jreced99 on 2019/11/17 21:53
Added more ads, yayyy! Why isn't everyone excited?
The change
by Pckjtca on 2019/11/17 15:44
This game was perfect, nice, amazing, and then they suddenly added ads every time you lose? I used to play it all the time, but this ruined the whole game for me.
Ad Sweeper.....
by lioneheartz on 2019/11/16 23:36
Game would be good if you didn’t have 30+ second mandatory ads after almost every round.
25$ ad remover?
by stupid 25 dollar charge on 2019/11/15 07:49
I love minesweeper, but i’m very disappointed with this app. While trying to click off an ad, the payment bar opened and i couldn’t close the app or close the payment tab. trying to get back to the home screen, the transaction went through because of my fingerprint. Now i have to deal with a 25 dollar charge :/
Why does this ask question
by Gjr1228 on 2019/11/14 21:02
It asked me for my location and I don’t know why I’m scared I’ll go play flying gorilla
What a joke
by TimothiusMaximus on 2019/11/14 20:21
$25 to remove ads? You’ve got to be out of your mind.
Big fun yes
by IllogicalEar on 2019/11/14 14:53
For big Brian people like me
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP
by DonnieFragale on 2019/11/13 02:37
I was playing intermediate level and finished the level, but no win popped up. I started clicking around to see if something would trigger it, and all of a sudden an Apple Pay link for No Ads pops up and won’t go away. Accidentally, pressing my home screen, I paid $25 to this app just from trying to click out of it. THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
$25 TO GET RID OF BANNER ADS SCAM
by Donutpie on 2019/11/10 18:20
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!! IAP SCAM!!! This app is literally just minesweeper but clicking the x next to a banner offers you to pay to get rid of the ads for A WHOLE TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS. SUCH A SCAM! I accidentally payed it and so now ive lost $25 to some garbage app i was gonna delete probably tomorrow. I’ve never ever paid more than $5 on the app store and now ive been scammed out of $25. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!
Forces a purchase
by treyhara on 2019/11/08 18:16
After a game ends, the app will open an ad. When you try to close the ad it will open an ad free purchase screen. If your Touch ID is on and you try and close out of the app it will read your fingerprint and immediately charge your account for the purchase. I had to go through days of the Apple refund system to get my $15 back for something I didn’t purchase.
To many advertisements
by 1e2d3w4i5n on 2019/11/08 04:24
To many advertisements and $25 for the no add option 😡
Love it, but remove ad got me
by JParedes320 on 2019/11/07 13:41
I love this game and play it whenever I have any free time, but they got me with the ad. When I accidentally pressed the ad, it brought up the remove ad payment screen. I pressed cancel and then pressed the cancel button for the pop up that appears afterwards. Then I tried to press the home button to get out of the game, but this app always brings up the remove ad purchase screen again after I press cancel anyways, so it made me pay $25 to remove ads for this game. Can’t even cancel it with Apple. Don’t make the same mistake I did
Flags
by brown726 on 2019/11/07 12:36
It often confuses the normal (clearing) tap with the long (marking) tap when I try to mark for flags. Overall, still a good game
They want your money
by Fun Ni Guy on 2019/11/07 04:49
Watch out! It’s classic mine sweeper but they are trying to rip you off $25 bucks to stop getting adds.
Greatest thing about this app is how it interrupts you asking for a review
by Yournamehere314159 on 2019/11/06 17:26
Here’s your review. 1 Star for being annoying and interrupting my usage.
Escape
by raftaz on 2019/11/06 03:33
Great game to remove me from politics.
Consistent bugs
by AGNuffin on 2019/11/06 01:45
I have lost multiple times due to a number being wrongly labeled. 1 squares touching multiple bombs, and things of that nature. I recommend downloading a different app.
Why does it need so much info?
by nhkman on 2019/11/05 06:06
Two major things: 1. Why does this app need to send notifications and why does it need your location? 2. I lost a round. Tried to click an “x”, and it tried to get me to spend $25 on the app? Why in the world is a minesweeper app trying to trick people into spending $25 on a game like this? Avoid this, find a program on the computer.
Ad-ware
by Mr_Chip on 2019/11/05 05:35
Expected it to be ad-ware. Didn’t expect it to request location and push notification permissions for minesweeper. Bleach.
Noisy pop up adds!!
by flannepe on 2019/11/03 11:22
Noisy adds pop up when playing. Noisy enough to be startling and bothersome to anyone else around you. Deleted
Good gameplay, but vastly overpriced ad removal
by Mars rover engineer on 2019/11/02 16:39
This is a great implementation of Minesweeper and I’ve had it installed for something like 6-8 years on my older iPads and iPhones. However, the new version has ads and an in-app purchase to remove them—for $24.99. This is far higher than any other app I’ve seen, and somehow while playing for a few minutes I’ve had the “Remove in-app purchases” dialog pop up 3-4 times. Why so much for removing ads? The developer is already getting ad revenue from the ads, so for an app that’s been around for years, it seems a bit out of line to charge so much. This isn’t a content-heavy app that requires a big developer team or maintenance of servers for massively online play, so it’s unreasonable to charge so much (speaking as an app developer myself).
great game, but seriously?
by homie lizard on 2019/11/02 13:17
so i dont always have internet and cellular is expensive, so i think “hey, why not play minesweeper?”. either way i pressed the x in the bottom right corner and it tried buying no ads. for 25 dollars. theres barely any ads in the first place, so why is that an option? also it randomly zooms in on harder gamemodes that have a lot of tiles. other than that, great game.
Very fun game, oh yeah
by datbigboi47 on 2019/11/02 05:29
Oml this game is so addictive
Auto play videos in the middle of my game?!?
by blue.hornet on 2019/11/01 00:04
Very disappointed videos started to auto play in the middle of my game which not only startle me, but were not muted...and make me lose my game.
Nice

One frustration
by ash2649 on 2019/10/23 17:23
Sometimes it doesn’t register when I hit flag, so then I go to flag a bomb and it ends the game because it didn’t switch to flag mode. When I’m doing hard puzzles this is incredibly frustrating. Otherwise, great game I’ve been having fun with it!
Forced purchase
by SGB110 on 2019/10/22 14:20
The purchase window popped up while playing the free version to determine if I liked the game and would not cancel. When I attempted to exit the game the purchase authorized. I DID NOT WANT TO PURCHASE THIS GAME.
Not good
by Braikyo4 on 2019/10/22 01:51
I would not recommend this app. For some reasons the flag option has an “unknown mode” or something, which really prevents me from getting fast times. The stats are not good either, as it says my best times for beginner, medium and expert are all 1 second. This is not true. DO NOT GET THIS APP
It good
by STED2321XY on 2019/10/21 23:42
Real good
A couple guesses and logic applies
by Don0712 on 2019/10/21 18:05
The game is simple. After the initial guesses, you need to apply logic to clear the board. After a bit, you have to race the clock to set a personal best. Young children get it and older kids ( of all ages) enjoy the challenge. Unlike candy crush type games with all of the flash, this one does not have an arbitrary quality as to what appears when. It's just you and the minefield.
Horrible
by Crinsav on 2019/10/21 11:38
Played several times where the puzzle numbers were completely wrong. All you had to do was make the game play correctly. Nothing fancy.
Does not work
by ales9119 on 2019/10/21 06:43
Played a few times as I could not believe it. It just does not work. Played at highest difficulties and just gave the wrong number of mines and exploded. How can anyone who is making apps not be able to program a minesweeper in 2019... Don't lose your time...
Fantastic
by UnderwearMan93 on 2019/10/20 21:54
No school like the old school! Classic game that’s just as challenging and fun as when it first came out! Can’t recommend it enough!
Crap app - scummy click spam
by kakashi hatake on 2019/10/19 19:09
The app will spam you to pay 24 dollars to pay for it making it difficult to delete the app to stop the spam. What a piece of crap.
Great! But...
by >Tyler on 2019/10/19 14:51
25 DOLLARS FOR NO ADS!?
Its cool but need some fixes.
by Alexxxander! on 2019/10/18 14:16
Runs pretty smooth. Not as many ads as Im used to which is good. But there are times when i click a gray box and there is a bomb there. Despite me flagging 1 bomb correctly already within the area. There are actually 2. Causing me to lose. Or if there is the number ‘2’ there are actually 3 bombs.
Don’t ever ask me to rate an app

The only people stupid enough to leave a real resolve is my dying grandma who already has little to live for
Fun game but audio on ads can’t be turned off
by fleaflala on 2019/10/12 18:26
Unable to prevent all ads from having sound. Occasionally an ad pops up very loudly.
So much fun
by xXMarioThePlumberXx on 2019/10/11 19:52
I love this app, it plays just like you expect it to, and is included all the fun of minesweeper from the windows XP and 7 days. 100% recommend.
Great
by Aaronbomb on 2019/10/11 02:55
And still great
Flag Button Hard to Read
by Mike Easley on 2019/10/10 13:02
The flag button, especially in bright light, is sometimes difficult to tell whether it’s on or off. I would suggest that you make the two gray tones easier to differentiate or relabel the buttons “Flag On” and “Flag Off”.
Time killer

Nice game although too much is left by chance
Fat fingers and tiny boxes don’t mix.

Ad free
by Dejuan_2tru on 2019/10/08 11:38
I love this game but I hate the ads. And In order to get an ad free version, you have to pay $15. How do you justify $15 for this simple game that’s free on computers?
This app charges you 15 dollars without telling you.
by CuroaFX on 2019/10/08 11:30
I was playing this game in school without my WiFi on when I got a notification in the center of my screen saying iTunes could not make a purchase. This was concerning at first, it only got worse when I turned on data and it popped up the purchasing menu trying to get me to pay $15. This app is a scam do not get it
Good minesweeper game but very frustrating
by Jholden854 on 2019/10/08 00:07
The app keeps periodically zooming in with no warning, which has caused me to lose several times. It also demands FIFTEEN DOLLARS if you want to remove ads, which is frankly ridiculously high and it’s absurd of the developers to ask for that much
Fix level generation
by LoLEdiarai on 2019/10/07 19:18
It's not exactly exhilarating gameplay to have to keep refreshing and not being able to play the game because the first click leads to a single "3" or something. Nothing to go off of, and all I can do is randomly tap around for the HOPE that I might have something to actually get started with but to no avail. Half the time I do get a half-decent start, it leads nowhere. And I'm talking no 121 rule, no patterns, it's just a rectangle that forces you to guess into another dead end. I'd rather go to Google minesweeper, except for the fact that I can't play it offline. It's a mediocre minesweeper port at best until they make the game playable. I enjoy minesweeper for the logical solutions and satisfaction from being able to clear it based on what I've learned. Not constantly guessing because the level generation gives you nothing to work off of. Disappointing, looked promising. Maybe it's just the advanced difficulty, but even then Google minesweeper is better in all respects.
Kind of a scam
by Vexus72 on 2019/10/07 04:12
I enjoyed the game very much but when I saw a ad at the bottom, I tried to press the x button to get rid of it then the game spammed me to purchase to get rid of ads for $15, then I clicked cancel and it said purchase canceled so I clicked ok then it shows the ad again and it repeats. To stop it you just press the home button when it says purchase cancel.
unauthorized charge!!!! Beware!
by $tudly on 2019/10/06 22:46
I was playing the game and next thing I knew it said I was charged!!, later found out $15, I did not authorize this I cannot find a way to request a reimbursement or to cancel it.
Kept trying to trick me into paying
by OTMFAN on 2019/10/03 21:19
I played for two minutes and then I was inundated with the request to pay for the app to remove ads. When I tried to close the app it tried to use my thumb print to process a payment. I don’t want this app!!!
Officially Addicted
by 69Wins on 2019/10/02 04:44
Hadn’t played this game in 10 years till I found this app. Got very into it a couple months ago and I’ve been very impressed with how few ads I get and how smoothly the game plays. Love your app! Weird thing though. I’ve won at least 100 games on expert but it says games won: “69.” Pretty dang funny if that’s intentional. And my only two suggestions are to add a feature where the first click is always an empty zone (takes me a few tries to find one on my own) and to make “average time of win” a statistic because half the times it logs are deaths within a couple seconds. Hats off to the developers. Fabulous app that’s likely to keep eating hours out of my week for years to come!
Great game
by Leoric2466 on 2019/10/02 03:25
Its minesweeper, what else can i say
Fun but some bugs
by bball_colin on 2019/09/30 19:39
The game is great! Sometimes it randomly zooms in and it messes me up but it’s still fun.
Games do not have correct computations
by Banzai682 on 2019/09/28 15:43
I played multiple times where the “correct” placement doesn’t make any sense. I have screenshots to prove that places where there is a number 2 only have one mine next to it. So, basically, the game is flawed!
Spam
by Ema@PR on 2019/09/25 22:56
Be careful with this app. It started to abruptly apear in my screen to make me buy the app just like a f’ng spam.
Nope.
by fatblue on 2019/09/20 23:38
Game constantly tried to be “purchased” for 15 dollars. Couldn’t play the game because the window kept popping up.
This game is a scam
by Kirbyo7 on 2019/09/19 07:15
I downloaded this game because I wanted to get good at minesweeper because of another game I was playing and wanted to get good at it. When I lost the first game a add purchase screen came up and said to pay 15 dollars I closed it out and it came right back up so I closed it again. It kept coming up over and over again and when I wanted to go back to the home screen my phone read my thumb print and the purchase went though and the developer will not give my 15 dollars back. This is a scam since it keeps asking you to purchase it even even when you try to close it out. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!

This game is awesome with high stress but simple gameplay
First game free
by nathanr8985 on 2019/09/17 16:43
After 1 game, they want you to pay..... instead of doing annoying ads like other apps. Deleting and trying the others out.
Technically Works
by LoganL2 on 2019/09/16 05:24
Of course, I don't give 5 stars to an app for that technically works. I actually downloaded this one because a different app didn't let you zoom out. However, that doesn't mean it's perfect. Here's just a short list of adjustments I'd appreciate: • When you start a game, it should always clear a small field. This is a logic game, not a guessing game. The player should always know where the next mine is by deduction alone, not chance. • The new game button should be on top, available with one tap, not two. • A feedback option directly in the app. I shouldn't have to review the app to give feedback.
Scam
by JanxyJanx on 2019/09/14 06:15
14 dollars popped up when I went to my home screen. I want my money back. Did not want to spend that
The Bomb!!!!!
by jdjdifnrd on 2019/09/11 05:05
This game is so great! Wish there were no ads!
Frustrating
by çvhí on 2019/09/05 04:17
The apps simple design makes the game fast an easy to play. However quite often the game will have the wrong number in correlation to how many mines there are actually in the area. Often swapping what should be a 3 for 2. Thus you lose games you should not.
Auto zooms too far in
by Melly729 on 2019/09/04 03:40
Game is great, but what I can’t stand is how every time I zoom out it automatically zooms way back in after a couple of seconds or once I touch the screen. It drives me nuts having it so zoomed in and makes it unbearable for me to play. Idk if this is a glitch or just how the app is designed, but if it’s the latter then a screen lock option would be nice to prevent this.
Deceptive Practice to get you to sign up
by zumau on 2019/09/02 12:35
I wanted to use the free part, when your game stops there is a button to start a new game that has a charge of $14 plus dollars that you don’t see if you are getting to the new game. Apple will not help you get a refund. This is deceptive practices and I would no way allow my kid or suggest any adult get this game.
This game, just wow
by Abbyzness on 2019/08/31 04:04
How bout this!? A fresh hot new game
Great classic
by Famtastic21 on 2019/08/29 16:25
As intended
Started out fine, now constantly crashes
by Leslie651307 on 2019/08/27 19:53
When I first downloaded the app, I had no issues. As of late, I’ve been dealing with constant crashes. The app closes mid-game quite often. I’ve also been dealing with lagging, as in when selecting a tile to flag, I often have to select it multiple times before it registers. Some of my clicks don’t register at all, which has led me to losing a few games. It’s unfortunate because I’ve enjoyed playing the game in the past, but the app just doesn’t work. My phone is updated, so I doubt that’s the issue. I’ve even had the app crash twice in under 3 minutes.
I wish the blocks were larger. It’s too easy to hit accidentally hit the wrong
by Judyfine307 on 2019/08/26 20:24
Hit the wrong block.
The price to remove ads is insane
by EscanorPride on 2019/08/26 16:36
$15 to remove ads!!!???!? The develops are really trying to pay rent this month because that’s robbery if I’ve ever seen it. As far as the game itself it’s great and I love it. I mean minesweepers is pretty straight forward simple game so you can’t really screw it up. Unless of course you charge $15 dollars to remove ads. Then you lose 2 stars.
Scam
by Tozammmpyi on 2019/08/26 03:45
There was an add at the bottom of the screen with an X to close it. I tapped the X and then it wanted me to pay $14.99 to remove ads. Then every time I hit cancel it kept showing up. Deleted the app within 30 seconds.
Almost perfect port of minesweeper!
by Kirstin😁😘 on 2019/01/02 17:49
I’ll just start out by saying that if you’re looking for an overall good minesweeper game then look no further. This game is a very good, classic strategy game and these developers brought it over to mobile and it works amazingly. I’ve noticed and love the feature where if I’ve flagged the mine and the the number the rest of the tiles get revealed without having to be tapped; it’s a real quality of life improvement. The ads on this game are not very intrusive and are added in very well. The only issue I have with the game is when starting a new game ( in this version) your first tile that you tap will be a freebie. This is good and is how things should be. The issue arises when only one number is revealed and I’m forced to tap blindly around the number until I can find a larger field (or empty space). I find that most new games will end on the first few taps because I have no options but to randomly tap around my first number and hope for the best. There are some other versions of minesweeper that fix this issue by making your first tap reveal a nice field with plenty of options to go and spread out. It doesn’t even have to be huge; just large enough to give a new game a chance to go on. All in all the game has no problems except for the one mentioned above and that really isn’t that big of a problem just more of an annoyance than anything else. I definitely recommend this game.
Really Recommend (but fix some things please)
by j.t.s.jay on 2018/05/17 22:31
This has been the only minesweeper app I have ever used. I have had it for many years now. It’s efficient and clear. I highly recommend it compared to other apps out there. There are three issues with the app however and I really wish the developers would fix them!! Firstly, the records section never really makes much sense and doesn’t record my times correctly or even in the right difficulty section. The second is that there are times where I will play a specific board and then the next time I open the app to play, the first game is the exact same board. It happened for weeks once and it was fun to see how much of the board I could memorize but it’s an overall glitch. My last issue is the most frustrating. The ads on the app stop my music from playing mid-game. I don’t mind if an ad has noise but it should silence my music when an ad is not being played. For the love of god find a way to fix that. At this point, nothing is going to make me switch to another minesweeper app but there’s room for improvement with this one.
Works just like it should.
by ShadyBravo on 2018/03/28 05:11
I searched for minesweeper a couple of weeks ago after remembering playin this on a PC as a teenager. I loved this game. I like this app because the ads are sparse and unobtrusive, the game play is consistent, fast, and seems to work like it should. I’m glad in download, even though it negatively affects my productivity. A couple of notes for the developer: 1) Though I play in the “Difficult” mode, the stats page records every game I play in the “Medium” mode. It actually says I’ve played zero difficult games but won 234 of those zero games. So there’s a slight glitch in the stat recording. 2) If I’m listening to a podcast or music while playing it forces the music to stop. It doesn’t always happen right away, but it eventually does. Minesweeper takes over as the active audio player even though Minesweeper has no audio. That’s annoying and always ends with me ceasing to play.
Great gameplay
by Jeffpn on 2019/12/03 22:14
I’m so glad I found this game. I used to play minesweeper a lot when I got Windows 3.1! This version is very much like Microsoft’s original version. I see a lot of reviews where player’s complain that their first move doesn’t clear half the board. It shouldn’t! Minesweeper is a game that involves both skill and luck. I had the same “issue” playing all those years ago in Windows. In this version, like Windows, the first move is free. It will not be a bomb. After that, you’re on your own. The bombs are randomly placed. You may clear a lot of space, you may not. It’s all part of the game. If you want larger clears, customize the grid yourself. Make the biggest grid you can and put in the fewest bombs possible. You’ll win in just a couple of moves every time. Trophies for everyone!
Good. Add a function.
by door_matt123 on 2018/07/03 18:02
I have played over 100 hours on this game over the past four months, and have recently cleared the difficult board in 188 seconds. I end up spending a few seconds tapping for a flag, and unflagging a flag if I make a mistake, so if the developers were to allow me to specify the time it takes to flag a flag, and i were to be able to make it barely longer than revealing a block, I’d be able to clear the board faster than my current speed potential of roughly 165.
Fix level generation
by LoLEdiarai on 2019/10/07 19:18
It's not exactly exhilarating gameplay to have to keep refreshing and not being able to play the game because the first click leads to a single "3" or something. Nothing to go off of, and all I can do is randomly tap around for the HOPE that I might have something to actually get started with but to no avail. Half the time I do get a half-decent start, it leads nowhere. And I'm talking no 121 rule, no patterns, it's just a rectangle that forces you to guess into another dead end. I'd rather go to Google minesweeper, except for the fact that I can't play it offline. It's a mediocre minesweeper port at best until they make the game playable. I enjoy minesweeper for the logical solutions and satisfaction from being able to clear it based on what I've learned. Not constantly guessing because the level generation gives you nothing to work off of. Disappointing, looked promising. Maybe it's just the advanced difficulty, but even then Google minesweeper is better in all respects.
Not happy
by Sanyexarosha on 2019/04/07 02:42
There are a few problems I have with this version. The first and most glaring is that it recycles games; I frequently get stuck in loops of playing the same layout over and over again until I lose. Secondly, it doesn’t give a free first move. This means that oftentimes I will lose automatically simply because the first square I clicked on was a bomb, or a numbered square that provided no utilizable information. Thirdly and most recently, the game has been freezing up on me randomly when I am on a winning streak, forcing me to close the game and start over. This has taken all the fun out of playing. I will say that I enjoy the simple, classic design of the game, which is why I initially selected this Minesweeper version: It does not try to be flashy or deviate unnecessarily from the original. However, it’s not worth the problems; I’ll be looking for a new Minesweeper for the future.
Got trapped into purchasing
by cactus boxing gloves on 2019/06/14 04:37
This is a good port of the game; no complaints on that end. But I must detract stars because I feel that I was manipulated. When an ad popping up cost me a game (by effecting the space that the game takes up and shifting it over), I tried pushing the “X” thinking it would send the ad away. Instead, an option to pay for an ad free version popped up and I was trapped in a loop of trying to exit from the payment prompt and being sent right back to it. Stupidly, I put my thumb to the home screen button to try to quit the game, but of course that just resulted in the payment going through. Its a pain to try to get a refund for these things, and ultimately I’ve decided that it’s not worth the struggle, which I’m sure is exactly what the developers want. Don’t make the same mistake I did!
Great game but...
by NaNa Whip on 2018/05/15 00:43
Overall I've had a lot of fun with this app! I used to lose a lot of games due to accidentally clicking a square instead of putting a bomb, but I got used to how the game goes and that hardly happens now. Something that is bothering me though is that sometimes when I go to start a game, I have to click multiple boxes before I get anything to work with. So the first box I click may only reveal that box, which obviously doesn't help at all. So I've lost multiple games due to that, especially the higher I go in difficulty. I'm even looking at other apps, because I'm struggling getting the more difficult games started because of it. Other than that I don't have any complaints. The adds are bearable.
Good game
by Capt. Lolzcatz on 2018/02/22 04:47
Good game that I love playing on my free time. Playing it is almost second nature to me. Sure, there can be some problems with the rng and sometimes I don’t tap sufficiently to select the Bomb on the top right. But besides all of this it make for a very clear, well run game. Message for devs: I know you probably won’t get this, but I just want to know what’s going on. I’ve been getting this message called “you’ve gotten the fastest time on expert mode, please put in your name” or something of the sort. Sure, I’ve beaten my time multiple times, but only twice have I received this message as appose to all the previous times I’ve beaten the alleged record. If you can tell me why this message shows, that’ll be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
The Game is Fine but Plagued with Ads
by Felipe28g on 2019/07/08 17:40
The game works fine, but creating a minesweeper game is not really that big of a feat to begin with. Placing flags is a pain and not at all convenient the way in which the UI is set up. However, the real reason this only gets two stars from me is the 30-second ads that you get sometimes consecutively after multiple losses. As everyone know some games can be as quick as a few seconds, so getting a 30-second ad after a game is a huge pain and a real turn off. I’ve had this app for months and I forget I even have it because I stop playing after 5 minutes of game play spammed with 3 or 4 30-second ads. For a game that used to be a default free game with every computer back in the day, this an actual hump that I can’t get over. Uninstalling.
Great interface but needs a fix for 5 stars
by kelinja23 on 2018/11/02 11:48
I love everything about how this app runs this classic and addicting game. There is a fix that should be addressed, however, that multiple other reviews mention. The first click should always reveal more than just one box (per how the game has historically been) so the game can get started without disrupting stats. It’s rather annoying on difficult having to start over multiple times because my first click only reveals one box which can’t get me started. Often times my next few clicks across the board only reveal one as well until I inevitably hit a bomb and have to start over.
Best one out of a crappy lot
by Oxford-commas-n-Oxford-shoes on 2019/01/15 14:57
I wanted to give it less stars but all the other minesweepers are even worse. The two things that really irk me are the zoom out on game over and the ads making your music stop. The first is going to stop me from playing and I will literally have to stop because it’s making my eyes hurt from the constant zooming actions. The second is annoying but I can deal with it. There was one minesweeper that allows you to toggle off the zoom out on game over but the animation on placing a bomb for that game is too slow to make it playable. I really just wish the devs here would get rid of the zoom because I don’t understand the need for it at all. I only play the biggest board
Couple tiny issues
by Carrotsand🍌🍌🍌🍌 on 2019/02/07 01:58
I enjoy the app, however there are a couple things to take note. There is always a mine in the bottom left corner of the map on the beginner difficulty. Also, sometimes it seems as though more mines will appear next to a tile than stated by that tile. The latter is most likely only a misunderstanding, however it still probably still worth looking into looked into (if there isn’t anything of much importance on your desk). At the end of the day, I like playing this classic game and probably won’t really care if any changes from now occur.
Technically Works
by LoganL2 on 2019/09/16 05:24
Of course, I don't give 5 stars to an app for that technically works. I actually downloaded this one because a different app didn't let you zoom out. However, that doesn't mean it's perfect. Here's just a short list of adjustments I'd appreciate: • When you start a game, it should always clear a small field. This is a logic game, not a guessing game. The player should always know where the next mine is by deduction alone, not chance. • The new game button should be on top, available with one tap, not two. • A feedback option directly in the app. I shouldn't have to review the app to give feedback.
Good, But Numbers Are Wrong
by A-Tilly The Hunn on 2019/05/06 14:53
Every couple of games, I’ll hit a bomb because the numbers are improperly counting bombs. It’s like they aren’t counting the ones diagonal, only the adjacent ones. This is pretty frustrating because I’ll lose a game through no fault of my own. I do have screenshots if the developers would like to see them. It’s a great game otherwise though! Update: It seems the bug may be caused by an 11th bomb. I’ve counted the bombs every time I’ve had this issue and it always comes up to 11.
Wonderful job!
by davis beauvais on 2017/11/19 21:47
All you people that think the numbers are wrong sometimes are incorrect and the reason you think that is you just aren't quite good enough to find the correct position and you tap a bomb which makes you rage too much too find your mistake. And of course there are ads because this guy needs to make at least some money. Game works great I even beat the maximum size of 24x30 with 100 mines!
Statistics are crap!
by Annoyed_Dave on 2019/01/11 13:32
I’ve been playing for a couple weeks. The game itself works fine, but the statistics are all screwed up. After I’d played “difficult” a few times, the stats said games played=0, games won=1, most consecutive wins=1, most consecutive loses=3. If I had won once and lost 3 in a row, why does total games played=0? I reset stats hoping to correct the problem. But my fastest time from “easy” got transferred to the “medium” category. I’ve reset several times now with the same result. I read another review from May that noted the same problem. The developer responded “we’ll look into that.” Now it’s January......it’s time for me to look for a new Minesweeper app. Bye!
Ok app
by Trishapgh on 2019/08/21 00:23
When I first downloaded this app, it was great. Minesweeper is obviously not a flashy complex game. But at some point, the ads became more annoying! The ads themselves (on the bottom of the screen) are not bad. The problem is that when the ads refresh, it resets the screen and causes me to hit the wrong square. (The squares on the board are small, so I often like to zoom in). Also, there are now occasionally 30 second pop-up ads between games when sometimes a whole game does not last 30 sec! Can you please at least fix the issue where the board resets when ads switch?
Great app
by Kârn the Betrayer on 2019/05/04 01:00
This has been the only minesweeper app I’ve used on phone and I’m currently loving it. Since I’ve just recently downloaded the app, there’s not much to complain about. I do however have just one thing to say, and that’s please for the love of God, add free spacing on the first turn. I’ve lost numerous times because I didn’t guess the correct squares, and it really kills me to see every lose in that way being recorded. That’s my only problem at the moment and it’s what’s keeping the app at 4 stars for me.
Very annoying delay
by KenTall on 2019/08/15 14:18
Mostly, I like this game. Classic minesweeper. The ads are annoying, but I can live with that. The reason I only gave it 1 star is because of a random delay they insert into the time it takes to identify a bomb. I’ll be flying through the game and at random times, it takes a fraction of a second longer to flag a bomb and when I lift my finger, the bomb goes off. I have a new iPad with a very fast processor so I know it’s not a problem with my device. And it never happens with anything else I do on my iPad. So the developers thought it would be fun to artificially insert a delay to cause me to lose a game, even when I’ve correctly identified a bomb. That’s just stupid!
Great, but touchy
by Captain Smokeblower on 2019/01/17 01:52
I play on an iPad, using anApple pencil so I have to be careful to ensure touches flagging a mine are solid and long enough. I have occasionally moved too slowly toward a mine square and had it detonate before I completed marking it. When tapping initial squares to start a game I hate when the second or third square is a mine. In the difficult game it’s rare to not detonate a mine in the first moves. If there were a Start New Game somewhere around the playing field that would speed up restarting after an early detonation.
Stop my Ads
by fdddghh on 2019/01/14 13:08
This app went from banner ad, to full screen pop up, now to full audio ads. I will pay for no ads... I’ve used this app forever. It’s my favorite. But I won’t for much longer if this is not resolved. When that Groupon ad comes up while I’m taking a few minutes to zone out, it actually upsets me. Audio popping up suddenly on an app that has no audio is unacceptably intrusive.
Great Game until...
by BTA54 on 2019/11/26 19:28
I played this version of Minesweeper for a few months many times a day. However, after this update, I will not be playing this version any more. When the game first starts, it asks for my Apple password even after I have just put it in. Then, an ad loads up. Then after I lose my first game, another ad shows up. It’s unenjoyable to play. Also the mines load in as a pattern. The same level I have played the past week is the first that is loaded up and I have to purposely lose to get another level pattern. This version of Minesweeper is no longer enjoyable to play.
Good if playing peacefully
by Enchanter Rose on 2018/07/16 07:30
It actually is a broken game as the first move is meant to give you a pocket of space to work with then generate; in this version, it's pre-generated around your first click meaning your first box can only contain a single "1" or "2" in it. It gives you nothing to work with and your second click can just be a bomb. Another infuriating thing is that sometimes the app doesn't realize you're holding down to mark a mine and counts it as a tap and activates said mine. Clearly the game wasn't properly made and needs to fix some of the biggest bugs still in it.
Bugs with Stats
by KJK916 on 2018/06/10 12:37
The game itself is smooth and works just like the computer game. I’m experiencing issues with the Stats page though. It doesn’t count the number of Difficult level games I’ve played and it seems to auto populate that my best time in solving the Difficult level is 18 seconds. Well, I’m good but I’m not that good. It’s disappointing that the Stats page is not accurate. The whole point of playing this game is to try to beat your previous time and when the time is not being properly recorded, it makes me lose motivation to play. Please fix the Stats page!
A couple guesses and logic applies
by Don0712 on 2019/10/21 18:05
The game is simple. After the initial guesses, you need to apply logic to clear the board. After a bit, you have to race the clock to set a personal best. Young children get it and older kids ( of all ages) enjoy the challenge. Unlike candy crush type games with all of the flash, this one does not have an arbitrary quality as to what appears when. It's just you and the minefield.
I love minesweeper but
by rajesh4b8 on 2018/05/02 18:18
I loved the app but has some issues... 1. When I reopen the app after sometime, it will not resume the previous game but shows something else with custom configuration 2. No way to disable question marks (?) It will kill sometime 3. Clicking the smiley for new game after reopening always create game with custom values 4. Statistics are calculated with some other game level when reopened after sometime
This game is a scam
by Kirbyo7 on 2019/09/19 07:15
I downloaded this game because I wanted to get good at minesweeper because of another game I was playing and wanted to get good at it. When I lost the first game a add purchase screen came up and said to pay 15 dollars I closed it out and it came right back up so I closed it again. It kept coming up over and over again and when I wanted to go back to the home screen my phone read my thumb print and the purchase went though and the developer will not give my 15 dollars back. This is a scam since it keeps asking you to purchase it even even when you try to close it out. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!
Unwanted zooming
by Emilynye on 2018/09/21 10:39
Loved this version of Minesweeper, and it worked almost flawlessly until I updated to ios11. Only thing before I updated was some stats going in the wrong section, and why do you enter your name for fastest time when it won’t display them? Since updating though, it randomly auto zooms in when I’m not touching it, multiple times in a game (though not during every game). It’s so infuriating to take the time to scale it to my preferred size only to have it jump 4 seconds later.
I am the best
by Hllywd880 on 2018/11/04 00:49
Listen folks, I don't care who you are, what you eat, how much you make, which way you put on your pants, how you like the scent of vanilla, what your favorite salad dressing is, what your preferred fall-time, late-night, cold-weather jacket choice is, or even what your mothers preferred thanksgiving day dessert is, all I know is that none of you could possibly be better than me at this game. End of story. Sorry amateurs
Officially Addicted
by 69Wins on 2019/10/02 04:44
Hadn’t played this game in 10 years till I found this app. Got very into it a couple months ago and I’ve been very impressed with how few ads I get and how smoothly the game plays. Love your app! Weird thing though. I’ve won at least 100 games on expert but it says games won: “69.” Pretty dang funny if that’s intentional. And my only two suggestions are to add a feature where the first click is always an empty zone (takes me a few tries to find one on my own) and to make “average time of win” a statistic because half the times it logs are deaths within a couple seconds. Hats off to the developers. Fabulous app that’s likely to keep eating hours out of my week for years to come!
Review minesweeper game
by JSMPhD on 2018/07/11 18:19
This is a tough puzzle. Tougher than other minesweeper games, but it helping me to learn some puzzle logic. Only one thing annoys me, which is when the end game narrows down to a corner where two squares are still covered. At that point it is a 50/50 guess, which is not logic. Is there any way to get the game out of that hole? BTW all minesweeper games that I have played have that problem.
Started out fine, now constantly crashes
by Leslie651307 on 2019/08/27 19:53
When I first downloaded the app, I had no issues. As of late, I’ve been dealing with constant crashes. The app closes mid-game quite often. I’ve also been dealing with lagging, as in when selecting a tile to flag, I often have to select it multiple times before it registers. Some of my clicks don’t register at all, which has led me to losing a few games. It’s unfortunate because I’ve enjoyed playing the game in the past, but the app just doesn’t work. My phone is updated, so I doubt that’s the issue. I’ve even had the app crash twice in under 3 minutes.
I Think It Cheats
by Alabamagal2 on 2018/11/22 16:21
Initially I was really loving this game. Played exactly like the original I had played decades earlier. The first guess was the luck of the draw. Most of the time the selection would result in blank space opening up and hints to avoid the mines. After the "upgrade" I noticed the first guess almost all the time resulted in a single number, thus requiring a second guess. Then a third, fourth, fifth, etc. It's worst when I'm about to set a new winning streak. So, yes, I think the game cheats. But I still play it.
Just a suggestion
by BDT222 on 2018/08/18 15:29
The ‘Flag’ button is small on an iPhone. Sometimes while playing fast, I don’t realize the button hasn’t changed when I thought I pushed it. Black and gray are too close in shades to notice the button change. Nothing worse than being almost finished the game only to lose because the button wasn’t in the right mode. Maybe make the button red when in flag mode.
Please fix the buttons
by irritatedforeal on 2019/01/14 20:04
I wanted to play the classic minesweeper and this is definitely it however the buttons slip a lot and when your sure you were pressing flag or holding the button down enough to flag it will all of a sudden not work and you’ll instead click the bomb. It’s not really an issue on easy and medium level but once you get to difficult there’s so many squares that eventually the buttons glitch and let me tell you I am going insane after having 16 out of 99 mines left and then having to start all over. This glitch happens all the time. Please fix this
Easy to use and buggy as hell
by Rxbf on 2018/05/11 04:24
Design is intuitive, layout is good, gives you flexible options. But there are some super annoying bugs that have gotten bad enough I’m gonna find another minesweeper app. Probably more than half the time if I let my phone go to locked mode before I finish a game, it’ll lose where I was and revert to a state from some previous game. Also ads will pop up and stop me from playing randomly. At times it’ll do it like three times in a minute. L
Could use one change
by Kev619tron on 2019/06/24 09:04
I wish that the first square that you tap would always clear a few squares. So that way you wouldn’t have to lose a bunch of games before you finally get a playable map. All those unnecessary losses make some of the stats useless like winning percentage, winning streak, and losing streak.
Good game, sometimes a bit frustrating
by Maspaa on 2017/12/10 21:25
I’ve lost about 10 games because I was trying to flag a box and accidentally checked it instead. I know that the boxes have a different appearance in flag mode, but frankly I’m just trying to keep moving and don’t want to double check to ensure I’ve actually tapped the flag button. My opinion is that it should be larger and located more conveniently. Other than that, it’s a great little game and a loyal reproduction of the original.
Wish the errors/bugs were taken care of
by ArchAngel6190 on 2019/06/18 01:47
I love Minesweeper and enjoyed this app but got too frustrated by the amount of times I would lose because of an error in a numbers. For example, I see a 1 but know there is a mine located in a block next to it, and in what should be a normal move, ends up that there is a mine there as well and the number should have been a 2 instead. Has happened way too often and kills the game for me.
Great app but the zoom needs to be fixed
by Dude that likes chocolate on 2019/05/30 00:55
I want to start by saying I love this app and I play the game almost every day but I play on the IPhone 7+ and I’ve been having a hard time playing recently. Whenever I try to zoom into a set of mines it will sometimes zoom out right when I’m pressing on a square and it’ll press a bomb. I wish that there was a better way to zoom in and keep it static.
Love it, but remove ad got me
by JParedes320 on 2019/11/07 13:41
I love this game and play it whenever I have any free time, but they got me with the ad. When I accidentally pressed the ad, it brought up the remove ad payment screen. I pressed cancel and then pressed the cancel button for the pop up that appears afterwards. Then I tried to press the home button to get out of the game, but this app always brings up the remove ad purchase screen again after I press cancel anyways, so it made me pay $25 to remove ads for this game. Can’t even cancel it with Apple. Don’t make the same mistake I did
Good play, incorrect records
by rebeccarainn on 2018/09/14 23:58
I like the play in this app, but I have the same problem as other reviewers where the records section does not match my play. Also, what is the point of recording a name when you have the best time for a level when you can’t see that anywhere? I would love these issues fixed, cause it’s a really good app to play in! But I can’t rate it higher than 3/5 if the primary features don’t work correctly.
Decent game, but improvements needed
by Rckchck2 on 2019/06/16 16:58
This game would be great if not for the frustrating glitches. I agree with the no free space. My stats are way down because of all the times I’ve had to click through one number at a time to find the free space and got a bomb in the process. The most glaring glitch is that the numbers are wrong. I, too, have screen shots of these. If these problems were fixed, this would be a nice game. But the problems make it not worth my time.
Good game but
by Lovewings on 2019/03/05 21:34
The game is very clear and very fun and works exactly how it should except sometimes when I put my phone away I’d like to continue my game later especially for the larger puzzles. When I go back in, it resets and can get very annoying when I work for a long time only to go to another app for 5 seconds and lose all my progress. Other than that it’s great.
Video ads

I was ready to give this 5 stars, but then I was interrupted mid-game (not even between game rounds) by a video ad. I understand the need for ads, but a banner ad on the side would be better suited to this. It's very jarring to be interrupted by a video while I'm trying to play. The app is well made otherwise. It looks just like the old Windows 95 version, only it has been cleverly adapted for touchscreen with a "flag-placing mode" so as to avoid accidental selection of tiles.
Good
by Chappÿ on 2019/06/20 04:36
It does its simple job effectively. A comfortable “meets expectations”. The only drawbacks are the frequent banner / pop-up ads (you can disable with airplane mode!) and that it doesn’t track your stats with custom games. The “difficult” mode shouldn’t be a giant map you have to scroll around to see - maybe have an 8x8 with 20 mines. Also, maybe add a little explanation of how the game works. :)
New update had decreased usability
by Mfelic90 on 2018/01/24 01:41
In the new update you have to hold down longer to set a flag, resulting in blowing up many mines unintentionally. I’d rather accidentally set a flag for holding too long than accidentally click a spot that I know is a mine because I held too short. Then when you lose, the board resets all the way to the left, regardless of where you were positioned before so you have to scroll back over to where you want to start. Will probably look for a new app for this game.

Description
Minesweeper is a classic, throwback PC game that provides hours of fun. The game is simple, try to avoid the bombs to clear the minefield to win the game! Strategy and logic are needed to navigate the multiple levels of difficulty. Monitor your progress with the brand new stats tracker to keep tabs on your progress and try to beat your best times! This retro minesweeper game is just like the original and provides great fun for all ages. If you like old classic games such as chess, checkers, backgammon, solitaire, freecell as well as classic puzzle games like sudoku, tetris, and crossword puzzles then this game is for you! How to play: Start with a covered mine field of square tiles and clear the field by tapping one square at a time. But be careful, as underneath some tiles are bombs waiting to be detonated! Beneath each tile is a number (indicates how many mines are touching the tile), a blank space, or a mine waiting to be exploded! Use strategy and logic to navigate the mine map and win the game! Features: - Pinch to zoom - High scores leaderboard for each difficulty setting - Stats tracking to keep track of your games for each difficulty - Adjustable difficulty: Beginner, Medium, Difficult, and Custom options to ensure you are always challenged - Best, smoothest, fastest interface of any iPhone mine sweeper game - Flag Mode: Turn on flag mode to mark tiles you think are bombs quickly - Portrait and Landscape mode for iPhone and iPad If you love the game and care to provide feedback, please join our Facebook group and share your thoughts on future improvements: https://www.facebook.com/MinesweeperClassicPuzzleBomb/
Bloated with adware now
by HickeyBE on 2019/12/11 19:24
Used to be a great, fun minesweeper app, but the most recent update has forced tons of ads into the game.
What
by Corbuster101 on 2019/12/08 15:50
I wanted to play minesweeper. This is minesweeper. 10/10
Too easy
by hi74123 on 2019/12/08 01:27
Too easy
Ads
by battery 123456 on 2019/12/07 02:57
Far too many adds. Deleted game after 3 mins of play.
Good learning
by Qccat on 2019/12/04 02:08
It really helps learn mines when I started I couldn’t solve anything but after a little bit of practice I am now really good at it
Great gameplay
by Jeffpn on 2019/12/03 22:14
I’m so glad I found this game. I used to play minesweeper a lot when I got Windows 3.1! This version is very much like Microsoft’s original version. I see a lot of reviews where player’s complain that their first move doesn’t clear half the board. It shouldn’t! Minesweeper is a game that involves both skill and luck. I had the same “issue” playing all those years ago in Windows. In this version, like Windows, the first move is free. It will not be a bomb. After that, you’re on your own. The bombs are randomly placed. You may clear a lot of space, you may not. It’s all part of the game. If you want larger clears, customize the grid yourself. Make the biggest grid you can and put in the fewest bombs possible. You’ll win in just a couple of moves every time. Trophies for everyone!
Doesn’t work
by I ant me wit no vio gms on 2019/12/02 20:21
The numbers don’t always correspond correctly with the number of mines
Oppressive Commercials
by Jr0berts on 2019/12/02 04:06
The free version has the most oppressive commercial policies ever - not worth playing!
Not playing fair!
by Johnny Air Shop on 2019/12/02 00:02
Going down memory lane and remember the game Mine Sweep. Decided to down load this Classic Game. I have played this game millions of time and know how to play it! This game is not playing fair! It killed me many times and I can see the numbers is not correct with the patterns. Sorry I will have delete this game.
The game is broke
by LesionR on 2019/12/01 08:59
The game is so bad! If you played in hard difficulty it always puts you in situations that you have to choose out of luck and need no actual thinking.
update makes it unplayable
by NicholasFair on 2019/12/01 06:12
Used to be my favorite game on my phone, but now I’m looking for another option. The ad frequency—especially compared to what it was before—makes for a jarring experience. Also since this update, I’ve had some problems where I’ll switch to another app mid-game, and when I switch back, my progress will be lost.
The Classic Game
by Kingofmath on 2019/11/29 15:21
It’s the classic game that you remember from the earliest versions of Windows.
Easy to use!
by ScarletBox4 on 2019/11/29 04:33
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to use the right tools. I make less mistakes on the app than clicking the mouse on the computer. 😂
Hate the new update
by kimjuliehansen on 2019/11/28 21:05
This was my favorite game app, but the latest update is beyond annoying (especially the part where it automatically zooms out if you lose a game). Not loving the new settings design either. Lastly, now it asks me to enter my iTunes password every time i open the app. I really hope they’ll change it back, the last version was perfect:/
Don’t like the change
by Dria3250 on 2019/11/28 18:40
This used to be my favorite minesweeper app until the last update. Now it’s always asking me to log in, asking me to pay, giving me pop ups. And at the end of the game it’s kinda nice to see the whole board in challenge mode, but it’s unnecessary in the regular mode. Deleting and getting a new Minesweeper.
WAY too many ads
by misccrl on 2019/11/28 04:39
I got tired of the ads and switched to another app
Apple ID Sign In?
by It's just John on 2019/11/27 13:27
Why, on every startup, is this app asking me to enter my Apple ID!? 🤔 Smells awfully phishy....
Love the game but...
by Jimfromliny on 2019/11/26 22:26
I really love the game ... the ad frequency is not terrible. But (-1) star for repeated boards
Great Game until...
by BTA54 on 2019/11/26 19:28
I played this version of Minesweeper for a few months many times a day. However, after this update, I will not be playing this version any more. When the game first starts, it asks for my Apple password even after I have just put it in. Then, an ad loads up. Then after I lose my first game, another ad shows up. It’s unenjoyable to play. Also the mines load in as a pattern. The same level I have played the past week is the first that is loaded up and I have to purposely lose to get another level pattern. This version of Minesweeper is no longer enjoyable to play.
I just got minesweeper and I love it sooooooooo much
by PENGUIN A🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨 on 2019/11/23 20:10
Awesome game and fun for kids under 14 years of age
Off loaded
by JEN573 on 2019/11/22 22:39
I did enjoy the game until it started making me sign in every time I opened it.
great update
by EQ18 on 2019/11/18 02:12
Wow, new game mode is awesome.
Ads are excessive.
by murdock and face on 2019/11/17 23:21
Just let me pay for the game.
New Update
by jreced99 on 2019/11/17 21:53
Added more ads, yayyy! Why isn't everyone excited?
The change
by Pckjtca on 2019/11/17 15:44
This game was perfect, nice, amazing, and then they suddenly added ads every time you lose? I used to play it all the time, but this ruined the whole game for me.
Ad Sweeper.....
by lioneheartz on 2019/11/16 23:36
Game would be good if you didn’t have 30+ second mandatory ads after almost every round.
25$ ad remover?
by stupid 25 dollar charge on 2019/11/15 07:49
I love minesweeper, but i’m very disappointed with this app. While trying to click off an ad, the payment bar opened and i couldn’t close the app or close the payment tab. trying to get back to the home screen, the transaction went through because of my fingerprint. Now i have to deal with a 25 dollar charge :/
Why does this ask question
by Gjr1228 on 2019/11/14 21:02
It asked me for my location and I don’t know why I’m scared I’ll go play flying gorilla
What a joke
by TimothiusMaximus on 2019/11/14 20:21
$25 to remove ads? You’ve got to be out of your mind.
Big fun yes
by IllogicalEar on 2019/11/14 14:53
For big Brian people like me
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP
by DonnieFragale on 2019/11/13 02:37
I was playing intermediate level and finished the level, but no win popped up. I started clicking around to see if something would trigger it, and all of a sudden an Apple Pay link for No Ads pops up and won’t go away. Accidentally, pressing my home screen, I paid $25 to this app just from trying to click out of it. THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
$25 TO GET RID OF BANNER ADS SCAM
by Donutpie on 2019/11/10 18:20
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!! IAP SCAM!!! This app is literally just minesweeper but clicking the x next to a banner offers you to pay to get rid of the ads for A WHOLE TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS. SUCH A SCAM! I accidentally payed it and so now ive lost $25 to some garbage app i was gonna delete probably tomorrow. I’ve never ever paid more than $5 on the app store and now ive been scammed out of $25. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!
Forces a purchase
by treyhara on 2019/11/08 18:16
After a game ends, the app will open an ad. When you try to close the ad it will open an ad free purchase screen. If your Touch ID is on and you try and close out of the app it will read your fingerprint and immediately charge your account for the purchase. I had to go through days of the Apple refund system to get my $15 back for something I didn’t purchase.
To many advertisements
by 1e2d3w4i5n on 2019/11/08 04:24
To many advertisements and $25 for the no add option 😡
Love it, but remove ad got me
by JParedes320 on 2019/11/07 13:41
I love this game and play it whenever I have any free time, but they got me with the ad. When I accidentally pressed the ad, it brought up the remove ad payment screen. I pressed cancel and then pressed the cancel button for the pop up that appears afterwards. Then I tried to press the home button to get out of the game, but this app always brings up the remove ad purchase screen again after I press cancel anyways, so it made me pay $25 to remove ads for this game. Can’t even cancel it with Apple. Don’t make the same mistake I did
Flags
by brown726 on 2019/11/07 12:36
It often confuses the normal (clearing) tap with the long (marking) tap when I try to mark for flags. Overall, still a good game
They want your money
by Fun Ni Guy on 2019/11/07 04:49
Watch out! It’s classic mine sweeper but they are trying to rip you off $25 bucks to stop getting adds.
Greatest thing about this app is how it interrupts you asking for a review
by Yournamehere314159 on 2019/11/06 17:26
Here’s your review. 1 Star for being annoying and interrupting my usage.
Escape
by raftaz on 2019/11/06 03:33
Great game to remove me from politics.
Consistent bugs
by AGNuffin on 2019/11/06 01:45
I have lost multiple times due to a number being wrongly labeled. 1 squares touching multiple bombs, and things of that nature. I recommend downloading a different app.
Why does it need so much info?
by nhkman on 2019/11/05 06:06
Two major things: 1. Why does this app need to send notifications and why does it need your location? 2. I lost a round. Tried to click an “x”, and it tried to get me to spend $25 on the app? Why in the world is a minesweeper app trying to trick people into spending $25 on a game like this? Avoid this, find a program on the computer.
Ad-ware
by Mr_Chip on 2019/11/05 05:35
Expected it to be ad-ware. Didn’t expect it to request location and push notification permissions for minesweeper. Bleach.
Noisy pop up adds!!
by flannepe on 2019/11/03 11:22
Noisy adds pop up when playing. Noisy enough to be startling and bothersome to anyone else around you. Deleted
Good gameplay, but vastly overpriced ad removal
by Mars rover engineer on 2019/11/02 16:39
This is a great implementation of Minesweeper and I’ve had it installed for something like 6-8 years on my older iPads and iPhones. However, the new version has ads and an in-app purchase to remove them—for $24.99. This is far higher than any other app I’ve seen, and somehow while playing for a few minutes I’ve had the “Remove in-app purchases” dialog pop up 3-4 times. Why so much for removing ads? The developer is already getting ad revenue from the ads, so for an app that’s been around for years, it seems a bit out of line to charge so much. This isn’t a content-heavy app that requires a big developer team or maintenance of servers for massively online play, so it’s unreasonable to charge so much (speaking as an app developer myself).
great game, but seriously?
by homie lizard on 2019/11/02 13:17
so i dont always have internet and cellular is expensive, so i think “hey, why not play minesweeper?”. either way i pressed the x in the bottom right corner and it tried buying no ads. for 25 dollars. theres barely any ads in the first place, so why is that an option? also it randomly zooms in on harder gamemodes that have a lot of tiles. other than that, great game.
Very fun game, oh yeah
by datbigboi47 on 2019/11/02 05:29
Oml this game is so addictive
Auto play videos in the middle of my game?!?
by blue.hornet on 2019/11/01 00:04
Very disappointed videos started to auto play in the middle of my game which not only startle me, but were not muted...and make me lose my game.

One frustration
by ash2649 on 2019/10/23 17:23
Sometimes it doesn’t register when I hit flag, so then I go to flag a bomb and it ends the game because it didn’t switch to flag mode. When I’m doing hard puzzles this is incredibly frustrating. Otherwise, great game I’ve been having fun with it!
Forced purchase
by SGB110 on 2019/10/22 14:20
The purchase window popped up while playing the free version to determine if I liked the game and would not cancel. When I attempted to exit the game the purchase authorized. I DID NOT WANT TO PURCHASE THIS GAME.
Not good
by Braikyo4 on 2019/10/22 01:51
I would not recommend this app. For some reasons the flag option has an “unknown mode” or something, which really prevents me from getting fast times. The stats are not good either, as it says my best times for beginner, medium and expert are all 1 second. This is not true. DO NOT GET THIS APP
It good
by STED2321XY on 2019/10/21 23:42
Real good
A couple guesses and logic applies
by Don0712 on 2019/10/21 18:05
The game is simple. After the initial guesses, you need to apply logic to clear the board. After a bit, you have to race the clock to set a personal best. Young children get it and older kids ( of all ages) enjoy the challenge. Unlike candy crush type games with all of the flash, this one does not have an arbitrary quality as to what appears when. It's just you and the minefield.
Horrible
by Crinsav on 2019/10/21 11:38
Played several times where the puzzle numbers were completely wrong. All you had to do was make the game play correctly. Nothing fancy.
Does not work
by ales9119 on 2019/10/21 06:43
Played a few times as I could not believe it. It just does not work. Played at highest difficulties and just gave the wrong number of mines and exploded. How can anyone who is making apps not be able to program a minesweeper in 2019... Don't lose your time...
Fantastic
by UnderwearMan93 on 2019/10/20 21:54
No school like the old school! Classic game that’s just as challenging and fun as when it first came out! Can’t recommend it enough!
Crap app - scummy click spam
by kakashi hatake on 2019/10/19 19:09
The app will spam you to pay 24 dollars to pay for it making it difficult to delete the app to stop the spam. What a piece of crap.
Great! But...
by >Tyler on 2019/10/19 14:51
25 DOLLARS FOR NO ADS!?
Its cool but need some fixes.
by Alexxxander! on 2019/10/18 14:16
Runs pretty smooth. Not as many ads as Im used to which is good. But there are times when i click a gray box and there is a bomb there. Despite me flagging 1 bomb correctly already within the area. There are actually 2. Causing me to lose. Or if there is the number ‘2’ there are actually 3 bombs.
Don’t ever ask me to rate an app

Fun game but audio on ads can’t be turned off
by fleaflala on 2019/10/12 18:26
Unable to prevent all ads from having sound. Occasionally an ad pops up very loudly.
So much fun
by xXMarioThePlumberXx on 2019/10/11 19:52
I love this app, it plays just like you expect it to, and is included all the fun of minesweeper from the windows XP and 7 days. 100% recommend.
Great
by Aaronbomb on 2019/10/11 02:55
And still great
Flag Button Hard to Read
by Mike Easley on 2019/10/10 13:02
The flag button, especially in bright light, is sometimes difficult to tell whether it’s on or off. I would suggest that you make the two gray tones easier to differentiate or relabel the buttons “Flag On” and “Flag Off”.
Time killer

Fat fingers and tiny boxes don’t mix.

Ad free
by Dejuan_2tru on 2019/10/08 11:38
I love this game but I hate the ads. And In order to get an ad free version, you have to pay $15. How do you justify $15 for this simple game that’s free on computers?
This app charges you 15 dollars without telling you.
by CuroaFX on 2019/10/08 11:30
I was playing this game in school without my WiFi on when I got a notification in the center of my screen saying iTunes could not make a purchase. This was concerning at first, it only got worse when I turned on data and it popped up the purchasing menu trying to get me to pay $15. This app is a scam do not get it
Good minesweeper game but very frustrating
by Jholden854 on 2019/10/08 00:07
The app keeps periodically zooming in with no warning, which has caused me to lose several times. It also demands FIFTEEN DOLLARS if you want to remove ads, which is frankly ridiculously high and it’s absurd of the developers to ask for that much
Fix level generation
by LoLEdiarai on 2019/10/07 19:18
It's not exactly exhilarating gameplay to have to keep refreshing and not being able to play the game because the first click leads to a single "3" or something. Nothing to go off of, and all I can do is randomly tap around for the HOPE that I might have something to actually get started with but to no avail. Half the time I do get a half-decent start, it leads nowhere. And I'm talking no 121 rule, no patterns, it's just a rectangle that forces you to guess into another dead end. I'd rather go to Google minesweeper, except for the fact that I can't play it offline. It's a mediocre minesweeper port at best until they make the game playable. I enjoy minesweeper for the logical solutions and satisfaction from being able to clear it based on what I've learned. Not constantly guessing because the level generation gives you nothing to work off of. Disappointing, looked promising. Maybe it's just the advanced difficulty, but even then Google minesweeper is better in all respects.
Kind of a scam
by Vexus72 on 2019/10/07 04:12
I enjoyed the game very much but when I saw a ad at the bottom, I tried to press the x button to get rid of it then the game spammed me to purchase to get rid of ads for $15, then I clicked cancel and it said purchase canceled so I clicked ok then it shows the ad again and it repeats. To stop it you just press the home button when it says purchase cancel.
unauthorized charge!!!! Beware!
by $tudly on 2019/10/06 22:46
I was playing the game and next thing I knew it said I was charged!!, later found out $15, I did not authorize this I cannot find a way to request a reimbursement or to cancel it.
Kept trying to trick me into paying
by OTMFAN on 2019/10/03 21:19
I played for two minutes and then I was inundated with the request to pay for the app to remove ads. When I tried to close the app it tried to use my thumb print to process a payment. I don’t want this app!!!
Officially Addicted
by 69Wins on 2019/10/02 04:44
Hadn’t played this game in 10 years till I found this app. Got very into it a couple months ago and I’ve been very impressed with how few ads I get and how smoothly the game plays. Love your app! Weird thing though. I’ve won at least 100 games on expert but it says games won: “69.” Pretty dang funny if that’s intentional. And my only two suggestions are to add a feature where the first click is always an empty zone (takes me a few tries to find one on my own) and to make “average time of win” a statistic because half the times it logs are deaths within a couple seconds. Hats off to the developers. Fabulous app that’s likely to keep eating hours out of my week for years to come!
Great game
by Leoric2466 on 2019/10/02 03:25
Its minesweeper, what else can i say
Fun but some bugs
by bball_colin on 2019/09/30 19:39
The game is great! Sometimes it randomly zooms in and it messes me up but it’s still fun.
Games do not have correct computations
by Banzai682 on 2019/09/28 15:43
I played multiple times where the “correct” placement doesn’t make any sense. I have screenshots to prove that places where there is a number 2 only have one mine next to it. So, basically, the game is flawed!
Spam
by Ema@PR on 2019/09/25 22:56
Be careful with this app. It started to abruptly apear in my screen to make me buy the app just like a f’ng spam.
Nope.
by fatblue on 2019/09/20 23:38
Game constantly tried to be “purchased” for 15 dollars. Couldn’t play the game because the window kept popping up.
This game is a scam
by Kirbyo7 on 2019/09/19 07:15
I downloaded this game because I wanted to get good at minesweeper because of another game I was playing and wanted to get good at it. When I lost the first game a add purchase screen came up and said to pay 15 dollars I closed it out and it came right back up so I closed it again. It kept coming up over and over again and when I wanted to go back to the home screen my phone read my thumb print and the purchase went though and the developer will not give my 15 dollars back. This is a scam since it keeps asking you to purchase it even even when you try to close it out. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!

This game is awesome with high stress but simple gameplay
First game free
by nathanr8985 on 2019/09/17 16:43
After 1 game, they want you to pay..... instead of doing annoying ads like other apps. Deleting and trying the others out.
Technically Works
by LoganL2 on 2019/09/16 05:24
Of course, I don't give 5 stars to an app for that technically works. I actually downloaded this one because a different app didn't let you zoom out. However, that doesn't mean it's perfect. Here's just a short list of adjustments I'd appreciate: • When you start a game, it should always clear a small field. This is a logic game, not a guessing game. The player should always know where the next mine is by deduction alone, not chance. • The new game button should be on top, available with one tap, not two. • A feedback option directly in the app. I shouldn't have to review the app to give feedback.
Scam

14 dollars popped up when I went to my home screen. I want my money back. Did not want to spend that
The Bomb!!!!!
by jdjdifnrd on 2019/09/11 05:05
This game is so great! Wish there were no ads!
Frustrating
by çvhí on 2019/09/05 04:17
The apps simple design makes the game fast an easy to play. However quite often the game will have the wrong number in correlation to how many mines there are actually in the area. Often swapping what should be a 3 for 2. Thus you lose games you should not.
Auto zooms too far in
by Melly729 on 2019/09/04 03:40
Game is great, but what I can’t stand is how every time I zoom out it automatically zooms way back in after a couple of seconds or once I touch the screen. It drives me nuts having it so zoomed in and makes it unbearable for me to play. Idk if this is a glitch or just how the app is designed, but if it’s the latter then a screen lock option would be nice to prevent this.
Deceptive Practice to get you to sign up
by zumau on 2019/09/02 12:35
I wanted to use the free part, when your game stops there is a button to start a new game that has a charge of $14 plus dollars that you don’t see if you are getting to the new game. Apple will not help you get a refund. This is deceptive practices and I would no way allow my kid or suggest any adult get this game.
This game, just wow
by Abbyzness on 2019/08/31 04:04
How bout this!? A fresh hot new game
Great classic
by Famtastic21 on 2019/08/29 16:25
As intended
Started out fine, now constantly crashes
by Leslie651307 on 2019/08/27 19:53
When I first downloaded the app, I had no issues. As of late, I’ve been dealing with constant crashes. The app closes mid-game quite often. I’ve also been dealing with lagging, as in when selecting a tile to flag, I often have to select it multiple times before it registers. Some of my clicks don’t register at all, which has led me to losing a few games. It’s unfortunate because I’ve enjoyed playing the game in the past, but the app just doesn’t work. My phone is updated, so I doubt that’s the issue. I’ve even had the app crash twice in under 3 minutes.
I wish the blocks were larger. It’s too easy to hit accidentally hit the wrong
by Judyfine307 on 2019/08/26 20:24
Hit the wrong block.
The price to remove ads is insane
by EscanorPride on 2019/08/26 16:36
$15 to remove ads!!!???!? The develops are really trying to pay rent this month because that’s robbery if I’ve ever seen it. As far as the game itself it’s great and I love it. I mean minesweepers is pretty straight forward simple game so you can’t really screw it up. Unless of course you charge $15 dollars to remove ads. Then you lose 2 stars.
Scam
by Tozammmpyi on 2019/08/26 03:45
There was an add at the bottom of the screen with an X to close it. I tapped the X and then it wanted me to pay $14.99 to remove ads. Then every time I hit cancel it kept showing up. Deleted the app within 30 seconds.
Almost perfect port of minesweeper!
by Kirstin😁😘 on 2019/01/02 17:49
I’ll just start out by saying that if you’re looking for an overall good minesweeper game then look no further. This game is a very good, classic strategy game and these developers brought it over to mobile and it works amazingly. I’ve noticed and love the feature where if I’ve flagged the mine and the the number the rest of the tiles get revealed without having to be tapped; it’s a real quality of life improvement. The ads on this game are not very intrusive and are added in very well. The only issue I have with the game is when starting a new game ( in this version) your first tile that you tap will be a freebie. This is good and is how things should be. The issue arises when only one number is revealed and I’m forced to tap blindly around the number until I can find a larger field (or empty space). I find that most new games will end on the first few taps because I have no options but to randomly tap around my first number and hope for the best. There are some other versions of minesweeper that fix this issue by making your first tap reveal a nice field with plenty of options to go and spread out. It doesn’t even have to be huge; just large enough to give a new game a chance to go on. All in all the game has no problems except for the one mentioned above and that really isn’t that big of a problem just more of an annoyance than anything else. I definitely recommend this game.
Really Recommend (but fix some things please)
by j.t.s.jay on 2018/05/17 22:31
This has been the only minesweeper app I have ever used. I have had it for many years now. It’s efficient and clear. I highly recommend it compared to other apps out there. There are three issues with the app however and I really wish the developers would fix them!! Firstly, the records section never really makes much sense and doesn’t record my times correctly or even in the right difficulty section. The second is that there are times where I will play a specific board and then the next time I open the app to play, the first game is the exact same board. It happened for weeks once and it was fun to see how much of the board I could memorize but it’s an overall glitch. My last issue is the most frustrating. The ads on the app stop my music from playing mid-game. I don’t mind if an ad has noise but it should silence my music when an ad is not being played. For the love of god find a way to fix that. At this point, nothing is going to make me switch to another minesweeper app but there’s room for improvement with this one.
Works just like it should.
by ShadyBravo on 2018/03/28 05:11
I searched for minesweeper a couple of weeks ago after remembering playin this on a PC as a teenager. I loved this game. I like this app because the ads are sparse and unobtrusive, the game play is consistent, fast, and seems to work like it should. I’m glad in download, even though it negatively affects my productivity. A couple of notes for the developer: 1) Though I play in the “Difficult” mode, the stats page records every game I play in the “Medium” mode. It actually says I’ve played zero difficult games but won 234 of those zero games. So there’s a slight glitch in the stat recording. 2) If I’m listening to a podcast or music while playing it forces the music to stop. It doesn’t always happen right away, but it eventually does. Minesweeper takes over as the active audio player even though Minesweeper has no audio. That’s annoying and always ends with me ceasing to play.
Great gameplay
by Jeffpn on 2019/12/03 22:14
I’m so glad I found this game. I used to play minesweeper a lot when I got Windows 3.1! This version is very much like Microsoft’s original version. I see a lot of reviews where player’s complain that their first move doesn’t clear half the board. It shouldn’t! Minesweeper is a game that involves both skill and luck. I had the same “issue” playing all those years ago in Windows. In this version, like Windows, the first move is free. It will not be a bomb. After that, you’re on your own. The bombs are randomly placed. You may clear a lot of space, you may not. It’s all part of the game. If you want larger clears, customize the grid yourself. Make the biggest grid you can and put in the fewest bombs possible. You’ll win in just a couple of moves every time. Trophies for everyone!
Good. Add a function.
by door_matt123 on 2018/07/03 18:02
I have played over 100 hours on this game over the past four months, and have recently cleared the difficult board in 188 seconds. I end up spending a few seconds tapping for a flag, and unflagging a flag if I make a mistake, so if the developers were to allow me to specify the time it takes to flag a flag, and i were to be able to make it barely longer than revealing a block, I’d be able to clear the board faster than my current speed potential of roughly 165.
Fix level generation
by LoLEdiarai on 2019/10/07 19:18
It's not exactly exhilarating gameplay to have to keep refreshing and not being able to play the game because the first click leads to a single "3" or something. Nothing to go off of, and all I can do is randomly tap around for the HOPE that I might have something to actually get started with but to no avail. Half the time I do get a half-decent start, it leads nowhere. And I'm talking no 121 rule, no patterns, it's just a rectangle that forces you to guess into another dead end. I'd rather go to Google minesweeper, except for the fact that I can't play it offline. It's a mediocre minesweeper port at best until they make the game playable. I enjoy minesweeper for the logical solutions and satisfaction from being able to clear it based on what I've learned. Not constantly guessing because the level generation gives you nothing to work off of. Disappointing, looked promising. Maybe it's just the advanced difficulty, but even then Google minesweeper is better in all respects.
Not happy
by Sanyexarosha on 2019/04/07 02:42
There are a few problems I have with this version. The first and most glaring is that it recycles games; I frequently get stuck in loops of playing the same layout over and over again until I lose. Secondly, it doesn’t give a free first move. This means that oftentimes I will lose automatically simply because the first square I clicked on was a bomb, or a numbered square that provided no utilizable information. Thirdly and most recently, the game has been freezing up on me randomly when I am on a winning streak, forcing me to close the game and start over. This has taken all the fun out of playing. I will say that I enjoy the simple, classic design of the game, which is why I initially selected this Minesweeper version: It does not try to be flashy or deviate unnecessarily from the original. However, it’s not worth the problems; I’ll be looking for a new Minesweeper for the future.
Got trapped into purchasing
by cactus boxing gloves on 2019/06/14 04:37
This is a good port of the game; no complaints on that end. But I must detract stars because I feel that I was manipulated. When an ad popping up cost me a game (by effecting the space that the game takes up and shifting it over), I tried pushing the “X” thinking it would send the ad away. Instead, an option to pay for an ad free version popped up and I was trapped in a loop of trying to exit from the payment prompt and being sent right back to it. Stupidly, I put my thumb to the home screen button to try to quit the game, but of course that just resulted in the payment going through. Its a pain to try to get a refund for these things, and ultimately I’ve decided that it’s not worth the struggle, which I’m sure is exactly what the developers want. Don’t make the same mistake I did!
Great game but...
by NaNa Whip on 2018/05/15 00:43
Overall I've had a lot of fun with this app! I used to lose a lot of games due to accidentally clicking a square instead of putting a bomb, but I got used to how the game goes and that hardly happens now. Something that is bothering me though is that sometimes when I go to start a game, I have to click multiple boxes before I get anything to work with. So the first box I click may only reveal that box, which obviously doesn't help at all. So I've lost multiple games due to that, especially the higher I go in difficulty. I'm even looking at other apps, because I'm struggling getting the more difficult games started because of it. Other than that I don't have any complaints. The adds are bearable.
Good game
by Capt. Lolzcatz on 2018/02/22 04:47
Good game that I love playing on my free time. Playing it is almost second nature to me. Sure, there can be some problems with the rng and sometimes I don’t tap sufficiently to select the Bomb on the top right. But besides all of this it make for a very clear, well run game. Message for devs: I know you probably won’t get this, but I just want to know what’s going on. I’ve been getting this message called “you’ve gotten the fastest time on expert mode, please put in your name” or something of the sort. Sure, I’ve beaten my time multiple times, but only twice have I received this message as appose to all the previous times I’ve beaten the alleged record. If you can tell me why this message shows, that’ll be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
The Game is Fine but Plagued with Ads
by Felipe28g on 2019/07/08 17:40
The game works fine, but creating a minesweeper game is not really that big of a feat to begin with. Placing flags is a pain and not at all convenient the way in which the UI is set up. However, the real reason this only gets two stars from me is the 30-second ads that you get sometimes consecutively after multiple losses. As everyone know some games can be as quick as a few seconds, so getting a 30-second ad after a game is a huge pain and a real turn off. I’ve had this app for months and I forget I even have it because I stop playing after 5 minutes of game play spammed with 3 or 4 30-second ads. For a game that used to be a default free game with every computer back in the day, this an actual hump that I can’t get over. Uninstalling.
Great interface but needs a fix for 5 stars
by kelinja23 on 2018/11/02 11:48
I love everything about how this app runs this classic and addicting game. There is a fix that should be addressed, however, that multiple other reviews mention. The first click should always reveal more than just one box (per how the game has historically been) so the game can get started without disrupting stats. It’s rather annoying on difficult having to start over multiple times because my first click only reveals one box which can’t get me started. Often times my next few clicks across the board only reveal one as well until I inevitably hit a bomb and have to start over.
Best one out of a crappy lot
by Oxford-commas-n-Oxford-shoes on 2019/01/15 14:57
I wanted to give it less stars but all the other minesweepers are even worse. The two things that really irk me are the zoom out on game over and the ads making your music stop. The first is going to stop me from playing and I will literally have to stop because it’s making my eyes hurt from the constant zooming actions. The second is annoying but I can deal with it. There was one minesweeper that allows you to toggle off the zoom out on game over but the animation on placing a bomb for that game is too slow to make it playable. I really just wish the devs here would get rid of the zoom because I don’t understand the need for it at all. I only play the biggest board
Couple tiny issues
by Carrotsand🍌🍌🍌🍌 on 2019/02/07 01:58
I enjoy the app, however there are a couple things to take note. There is always a mine in the bottom left corner of the map on the beginner difficulty. Also, sometimes it seems as though more mines will appear next to a tile than stated by that tile. The latter is most likely only a misunderstanding, however it still probably still worth looking into looked into (if there isn’t anything of much importance on your desk). At the end of the day, I like playing this classic game and probably won’t really care if any changes from now occur.
Technically Works
by LoganL2 on 2019/09/16 05:24
Of course, I don't give 5 stars to an app for that technically works. I actually downloaded this one because a different app didn't let you zoom out. However, that doesn't mean it's perfect. Here's just a short list of adjustments I'd appreciate: • When you start a game, it should always clear a small field. This is a logic game, not a guessing game. The player should always know where the next mine is by deduction alone, not chance. • The new game button should be on top, available with one tap, not two. • A feedback option directly in the app. I shouldn't have to review the app to give feedback.
Good, But Numbers Are Wrong
by A-Tilly The Hunn on 2019/05/06 14:53
Every couple of games, I’ll hit a bomb because the numbers are improperly counting bombs. It’s like they aren’t counting the ones diagonal, only the adjacent ones. This is pretty frustrating because I’ll lose a game through no fault of my own. I do have screenshots if the developers would like to see them. It’s a great game otherwise though! Update: It seems the bug may be caused by an 11th bomb. I’ve counted the bombs every time I’ve had this issue and it always comes up to 11.
Wonderful job!
by davis beauvais on 2017/11/19 21:47
All you people that think the numbers are wrong sometimes are incorrect and the reason you think that is you just aren't quite good enough to find the correct position and you tap a bomb which makes you rage too much too find your mistake. And of course there are ads because this guy needs to make at least some money. Game works great I even beat the maximum size of 24x30 with 100 mines!
Statistics are crap!
by Annoyed_Dave on 2019/01/11 13:32
I’ve been playing for a couple weeks. The game itself works fine, but the statistics are all screwed up. After I’d played “difficult” a few times, the stats said games played=0, games won=1, most consecutive wins=1, most consecutive loses=3. If I had won once and lost 3 in a row, why does total games played=0? I reset stats hoping to correct the problem. But my fastest time from “easy” got transferred to the “medium” category. I’ve reset several times now with the same result. I read another review from May that noted the same problem. The developer responded “we’ll look into that.” Now it’s January......it’s time for me to look for a new Minesweeper app. Bye!
Ok app
by Trishapgh on 2019/08/21 00:23
When I first downloaded this app, it was great. Minesweeper is obviously not a flashy complex game. But at some point, the ads became more annoying! The ads themselves (on the bottom of the screen) are not bad. The problem is that when the ads refresh, it resets the screen and causes me to hit the wrong square. (The squares on the board are small, so I often like to zoom in). Also, there are now occasionally 30 second pop-up ads between games when sometimes a whole game does not last 30 sec! Can you please at least fix the issue where the board resets when ads switch?
Great app
by Kârn the Betrayer on 2019/05/04 01:00
This has been the only minesweeper app I’ve used on phone and I’m currently loving it. Since I’ve just recently downloaded the app, there’s not much to complain about. I do however have just one thing to say, and that’s please for the love of God, add free spacing on the first turn. I’ve lost numerous times because I didn’t guess the correct squares, and it really kills me to see every lose in that way being recorded. That’s my only problem at the moment and it’s what’s keeping the app at 4 stars for me.
Very annoying delay
by KenTall on 2019/08/15 14:18
Mostly, I like this game. Classic minesweeper. The ads are annoying, but I can live with that. The reason I only gave it 1 star is because of a random delay they insert into the time it takes to identify a bomb. I’ll be flying through the game and at random times, it takes a fraction of a second longer to flag a bomb and when I lift my finger, the bomb goes off. I have a new iPad with a very fast processor so I know it’s not a problem with my device. And it never happens with anything else I do on my iPad. So the developers thought it would be fun to artificially insert a delay to cause me to lose a game, even when I’ve correctly identified a bomb. That’s just stupid!
Great, but touchy
by Captain Smokeblower on 2019/01/17 01:52
I play on an iPad, using anApple pencil so I have to be careful to ensure touches flagging a mine are solid and long enough. I have occasionally moved too slowly toward a mine square and had it detonate before I completed marking it. When tapping initial squares to start a game I hate when the second or third square is a mine. In the difficult game it’s rare to not detonate a mine in the first moves. If there were a Start New Game somewhere around the playing field that would speed up restarting after an early detonation.
Stop my Ads
by fdddghh on 2019/01/14 13:08
This app went from banner ad, to full screen pop up, now to full audio ads. I will pay for no ads... I’ve used this app forever. It’s my favorite. But I won’t for much longer if this is not resolved. When that Groupon ad comes up while I’m taking a few minutes to zone out, it actually upsets me. Audio popping up suddenly on an app that has no audio is unacceptably intrusive.
Great Game until...
by BTA54 on 2019/11/26 19:28
I played this version of Minesweeper for a few months many times a day. However, after this update, I will not be playing this version any more. When the game first starts, it asks for my Apple password even after I have just put it in. Then, an ad loads up. Then after I lose my first game, another ad shows up. It’s unenjoyable to play. Also the mines load in as a pattern. The same level I have played the past week is the first that is loaded up and I have to purposely lose to get another level pattern. This version of Minesweeper is no longer enjoyable to play.
Good if playing peacefully
by Enchanter Rose on 2018/07/16 07:30
It actually is a broken game as the first move is meant to give you a pocket of space to work with then generate; in this version, it's pre-generated around your first click meaning your first box can only contain a single "1" or "2" in it. It gives you nothing to work with and your second click can just be a bomb. Another infuriating thing is that sometimes the app doesn't realize you're holding down to mark a mine and counts it as a tap and activates said mine. Clearly the game wasn't properly made and needs to fix some of the biggest bugs still in it.
Bugs with Stats
by KJK916 on 2018/06/10 12:37
The game itself is smooth and works just like the computer game. I’m experiencing issues with the Stats page though. It doesn’t count the number of Difficult level games I’ve played and it seems to auto populate that my best time in solving the Difficult level is 18 seconds. Well, I’m good but I’m not that good. It’s disappointing that the Stats page is not accurate. The whole point of playing this game is to try to beat your previous time and when the time is not being properly recorded, it makes me lose motivation to play. Please fix the Stats page!
A couple guesses and logic applies
by Don0712 on 2019/10/21 18:05
The game is simple. After the initial guesses, you need to apply logic to clear the board. After a bit, you have to race the clock to set a personal best. Young children get it and older kids ( of all ages) enjoy the challenge. Unlike candy crush type games with all of the flash, this one does not have an arbitrary quality as to what appears when. It's just you and the minefield.
I love minesweeper but
by rajesh4b8 on 2018/05/02 18:18
I loved the app but has some issues... 1. When I reopen the app after sometime, it will not resume the previous game but shows something else with custom configuration 2. No way to disable question marks (?) It will kill sometime 3. Clicking the smiley for new game after reopening always create game with custom values 4. Statistics are calculated with some other game level when reopened after sometime
This game is a scam
by Kirbyo7 on 2019/09/19 07:15
I downloaded this game because I wanted to get good at minesweeper because of another game I was playing and wanted to get good at it. When I lost the first game a add purchase screen came up and said to pay 15 dollars I closed it out and it came right back up so I closed it again. It kept coming up over and over again and when I wanted to go back to the home screen my phone read my thumb print and the purchase went though and the developer will not give my 15 dollars back. This is a scam since it keeps asking you to purchase it even even when you try to close it out. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!
Unwanted zooming
by Emilynye on 2018/09/21 10:39
Loved this version of Minesweeper, and it worked almost flawlessly until I updated to ios11. Only thing before I updated was some stats going in the wrong section, and why do you enter your name for fastest time when it won’t display them? Since updating though, it randomly auto zooms in when I’m not touching it, multiple times in a game (though not during every game). It’s so infuriating to take the time to scale it to my preferred size only to have it jump 4 seconds later.
I am the best
by Hllywd880 on 2018/11/04 00:49
Listen folks, I don't care who you are, what you eat, how much you make, which way you put on your pants, how you like the scent of vanilla, what your favorite salad dressing is, what your preferred fall-time, late-night, cold-weather jacket choice is, or even what your mothers preferred thanksgiving day dessert is, all I know is that none of you could possibly be better than me at this game. End of story. Sorry amateurs
Officially Addicted
by 69Wins on 2019/10/02 04:44
Hadn’t played this game in 10 years till I found this app. Got very into it a couple months ago and I’ve been very impressed with how few ads I get and how smoothly the game plays. Love your app! Weird thing though. I’ve won at least 100 games on expert but it says games won: “69.” Pretty dang funny if that’s intentional. And my only two suggestions are to add a feature where the first click is always an empty zone (takes me a few tries to find one on my own) and to make “average time of win” a statistic because half the times it logs are deaths within a couple seconds. Hats off to the developers. Fabulous app that’s likely to keep eating hours out of my week for years to come!
Review minesweeper game
by JSMPhD on 2018/07/11 18:19
This is a tough puzzle. Tougher than other minesweeper games, but it helping me to learn some puzzle logic. Only one thing annoys me, which is when the end game narrows down to a corner where two squares are still covered. At that point it is a 50/50 guess, which is not logic. Is there any way to get the game out of that hole? BTW all minesweeper games that I have played have that problem.
Started out fine, now constantly crashes
by Leslie651307 on 2019/08/27 19:53
When I first downloaded the app, I had no issues. As of late, I’ve been dealing with constant crashes. The app closes mid-game quite often. I’ve also been dealing with lagging, as in when selecting a tile to flag, I often have to select it multiple times before it registers. Some of my clicks don’t register at all, which has led me to losing a few games. It’s unfortunate because I’ve enjoyed playing the game in the past, but the app just doesn’t work. My phone is updated, so I doubt that’s the issue. I’ve even had the app crash twice in under 3 minutes.
I Think It Cheats
by Alabamagal2 on 2018/11/22 16:21
Initially I was really loving this game. Played exactly like the original I had played decades earlier. The first guess was the luck of the draw. Most of the time the selection would result in blank space opening up and hints to avoid the mines. After the "upgrade" I noticed the first guess almost all the time resulted in a single number, thus requiring a second guess. Then a third, fourth, fifth, etc. It's worst when I'm about to set a new winning streak. So, yes, I think the game cheats. But I still play it.
Just a suggestion
by BDT222 on 2018/08/18 15:29
The ‘Flag’ button is small on an iPhone. Sometimes while playing fast, I don’t realize the button hasn’t changed when I thought I pushed it. Black and gray are too close in shades to notice the button change. Nothing worse than being almost finished the game only to lose because the button wasn’t in the right mode. Maybe make the button red when in flag mode.
Please fix the buttons
by irritatedforeal on 2019/01/14 20:04
I wanted to play the classic minesweeper and this is definitely it however the buttons slip a lot and when your sure you were pressing flag or holding the button down enough to flag it will all of a sudden not work and you’ll instead click the bomb. It’s not really an issue on easy and medium level but once you get to difficult there’s so many squares that eventually the buttons glitch and let me tell you I am going insane after having 16 out of 99 mines left and then having to start all over. This glitch happens all the time. Please fix this
Easy to use and buggy as hell
by Rxbf on 2018/05/11 04:24
Design is intuitive, layout is good, gives you flexible options. But there are some super annoying bugs that have gotten bad enough I’m gonna find another minesweeper app. Probably more than half the time if I let my phone go to locked mode before I finish a game, it’ll lose where I was and revert to a state from some previous game. Also ads will pop up and stop me from playing randomly. At times it’ll do it like three times in a minute. L
Could use one change
by Kev619tron on 2019/06/24 09:04
I wish that the first square that you tap would always clear a few squares. So that way you wouldn’t have to lose a bunch of games before you finally get a playable map. All those unnecessary losses make some of the stats useless like winning percentage, winning streak, and losing streak.
Good game, sometimes a bit frustrating
by Maspaa on 2017/12/10 21:25
I’ve lost about 10 games because I was trying to flag a box and accidentally checked it instead. I know that the boxes have a different appearance in flag mode, but frankly I’m just trying to keep moving and don’t want to double check to ensure I’ve actually tapped the flag button. My opinion is that it should be larger and located more conveniently. Other than that, it’s a great little game and a loyal reproduction of the original.
Wish the errors/bugs were taken care of

I love Minesweeper and enjoyed this app but got too frustrated by the amount of times I would lose because of an error in a numbers. For example, I see a 1 but know there is a mine located in a block next to it, and in what should be a normal move, ends up that there is a mine there as well and the number should have been a 2 instead. Has happened way too often and kills the game for me.
Great app but the zoom needs to be fixed
by Dude that likes chocolate on 2019/05/30 00:55
I want to start by saying I love this app and I play the game almost every day but I play on the IPhone 7+ and I’ve been having a hard time playing recently. Whenever I try to zoom into a set of mines it will sometimes zoom out right when I’m pressing on a square and it’ll press a bomb. I wish that there was a better way to zoom in and keep it static.
Love it, but remove ad got me
by JParedes320 on 2019/11/07 13:41
I love this game and play it whenever I have any free time, but they got me with the ad. When I accidentally pressed the ad, it brought up the remove ad payment screen. I pressed cancel and then pressed the cancel button for the pop up that appears afterwards. Then I tried to press the home button to get out of the game, but this app always brings up the remove ad purchase screen again after I press cancel anyways, so it made me pay $25 to remove ads for this game. Can’t even cancel it with Apple. Don’t make the same mistake I did
Good play, incorrect records
by rebeccarainn on 2018/09/14 23:58
I like the play in this app, but I have the same problem as other reviewers where the records section does not match my play. Also, what is the point of recording a name when you have the best time for a level when you can’t see that anywhere? I would love these issues fixed, cause it’s a really good app to play in! But I can’t rate it higher than 3/5 if the primary features don’t work correctly.
Decent game, but improvements needed
by Rckchck2 on 2019/06/16 16:58
This game would be great if not for the frustrating glitches. I agree with the no free space. My stats are way down because of all the times I’ve had to click through one number at a time to find the free space and got a bomb in the process. The most glaring glitch is that the numbers are wrong. I, too, have screen shots of these. If these problems were fixed, this would be a nice game. But the problems make it not worth my time.
Good game but

The game is very clear and very fun and works exactly how it should except sometimes when I put my phone away I’d like to continue my game later especially for the larger puzzles. When I go back in, it resets and can get very annoying when I work for a long time only to go to another app for 5 seconds and lose all my progress. Other than that it’s great.
Video ads
by Some other guy named Ben on 2018/05/02 14:25
I was ready to give this 5 stars, but then I was interrupted mid-game (not even between game rounds) by a video ad. I understand the need for ads, but a banner ad on the side would be better suited to this. It's very jarring to be interrupted by a video while I'm trying to play. The app is well made otherwise. It looks just like the old Windows 95 version, only it has been cleverly adapted for touchscreen with a "flag-placing mode" so as to avoid accidental selection of tiles.
Good

It does its simple job effectively. A comfortable “meets expectations”. The only drawbacks are the frequent banner / pop-up ads (you can disable with airplane mode!) and that it doesn’t track your stats with custom games. The “difficult” mode shouldn’t be a giant map you have to scroll around to see - maybe have an 8x8 with 20 mines. Also, maybe add a little explanation of how the game works. :)
New update had decreased usability
by Mfelic90 on 2018/01/24 01:41
In the new update you have to hold down longer to set a flag, resulting in blowing up many mines unintentionally. I’d rather accidentally set a flag for holding too long than accidentally click a spot that I know is a mine because I held too short. Then when you lose, the board resets all the way to the left, regardless of where you were positioned before so you have to scroll back over to where you want to start. Will probably look for a new app for this game.
