Video ads with sound
by Dostoevsky*37 on 2019/05/17 01:47
Ads will suddenly play over your speaker. Always a dealbreaker for me with apps.

Good game.
Unfair
by Mermzeep on 2019/04/24 17:49
Too hard to win some games because it comes down to a guessing game with no way of knowing where the last few mines are
Number one stunner
by Caroline_has_ig on 2019/04/20 15:47
Diehard minesweeper player here. I am absolutely in love with this app. I made the mistake of deleting it from my phone, and I nearly had a panic attack when I couldn’t find it again! I downloaded a dozen other minesweeper apps, in the hunt for this one. No other app compares to this one’s reactive speed, and ease of navigation, which is extremely vital. This app is the best one!
Almost a great version of Minesweeper
by Highway Bubba on 2019/04/15 11:57
Likes: The ads are not obtrusive at the bottom of the screen After finally finding the setting to change the mode to flag instead of the green boarder I like the mode appearance Works almost like the original game Can set custom difficulty levels So far have not had a need to just guess at a flag location. Other mine games I tried tended to have corners with two or more squares remaining and no hint as to which held the last mine forcing a guess that was often incorrect Dislike: Question marks to flag possible mines do not work at all though there is a setting in the menu. I cannot place a question mark. My previous game by a different company allowed a question mark to indicate a possible mine location. That game is no longer available so I went with this one. Poor help or instructions available
Efficient for fast players!
by thr4wn on 2019/04/13 18:44
In flag mode, Using 3D push for opening the square is faster than long press.

Bad way to end too many games!
by Voxxy101 on 2019/03/11 02:19
Way too many games that end up with a 50-50 chance of winning. You work hard to clear the board and that last move is just a “chance” move. Come on guys, this isn’t fun!!!
Ad covers bottom of screen
by pswtec on 2019/03/07 02:42
Unfortunately the ads cover the bottom of the screen, making it impossible to play the game.
The best.
by CenterMountedSoul7 on 2019/02/28 05:04
The title says it all.
Barely functional.
by Keila labelle on 2019/02/10 20:36
App is barely functional. Settings are arbitrary and hardly work. Changing the sensitivity & other settings barely makes any difference in play, touch screen sensitivity is slow regardless of my settings. I know this is the app and not my phone because other apps are more receptive than this one with equal movement & speed. There are times where the grid will not even register that I am touching it for more than ten seconds (solution: close the app and reopen it for another 10 seconds of gameplay). Ridiculous! If my scores weren’t saved on this app I would be shifting to a new app immediately.
Very groovy app
by Hegemony Cricket on 2019/02/10 05:43
Entirely groovy. Great logic exercise.
Great Game, just like the original
by DD1NY on 2019/02/01 04:51
My only complaint is the squares are too small for my fingers. Enlarging the screen only makes it harder to see the board since you have to scroll. Not sure there is much that can be done about it.
Amazing

I love this game and the stats provided are cool. If I could only figure a way to compensate for accidentally touching a bomb square and ruining my win %, it would be great!
Just like old times
by Daniellukemurphy on 2018/10/31 13:18
It’s minesweeper. Like old windows. It’s just like old times. The spelling app knows what I’m talking about. Spell old words. Make points. Evade detection. Excellent. Keep on finding words. Love comes walking in. Some kind of alien. And then you pull the string. Love comes walking in. I detect it in. Some kind of alien. Love comes walking in. Rocking guitar.
WHY DO I HAVE TO GUESS
by Gonzaloqg on 2018/10/29 10:55
TOO MANY TIMES IM STUCK AFTER FINISHING THE ADVANCED MAP HAVING TO GUESS... WITH NO OTHER TYPE OF CLUE OR EVIDENCE... I LEGITIMATELY HAVE TO GUESS BETWEEN THE LAST TWO. TOO FRUSTRATING !!!!!!! THATS NOT REAL MINESWEEPER

Solid with a bug
by guymanstuff on 2018/10/24 18:47
So it’s pretty solid, the only thing I found to be an issue are the numbers to indicate mines. Sometimes the numbers don’t actually reflect how many mines surround the number
Don’t like the noisy ads
by TraecyMc on 2018/10/23 00:37
Ads ok, it’s free—but they shouldn’t be noisy. I use my phone almost always on silent, then get bombarded with these new noisy ads. Let pay to play without ads, or make them silent again.
ICE & trump ads 👎
by AkB212 on 2018/10/20 18:19
This really was my favorite game to play. But I got really sick of the ICE and trump ads that were popping up. I always had to force quit the app and hope it wouldn’t pop up after re-loading because I didn’t want to click on the ad at all. Which was the only way for it to go away. Developers I do have screen shots of the ads if you’d like them.

MINESWEEPER IS A DRUG
by I love it<357864 on 2018/06/01 05:20
Do not download this game unless you want to develop a full blown addiction! I’ve spent countless hours playing this. I’ve been playing for so long that the speed at which I’ve come to play is FATAL. Literally I die within a minute because I’ve gotten so fast at recognizing where the bombs are that I oversee mistakes that result in sudden DEATH and it’s so frustrating that I have to play again. I don’t recommend this game unless you want all of your relationships to fall apart and insomnia because you cannot stop playing minesweeper. This isn’t a choice anymore.
Perfect, except....

by Hatenot on 2018/05/06 06:16
I love this app. It has features that other minesweeper apps do not. If I could change anything, it would be the slider for the amount of mines in custom mode. It is to sensitive and it’s difficult to get the precise amount of mines I want. If not for that I would have given 5 stars instead of 4.

Good app, one small problem
by abcdefghijkayz on 2018/04/17 14:05
I love this app. I've had it for years and play it all the time. Very true to the original PC version. My only issue is that sometimes when I am holding a square to tag it as a bomb, it doesn't register and detonates the bomb. As a suggestion, maybe the game shouldn't immediately reveal all other bombs. Instead, give the player the option to "undo" (a limited amount of times) or "reveal bombs" and start a new game.

This is by far the most played game on my phone. The Minesweeper UI is intuitive, and I have honestly wasted days of my life playing Minesweeper.
Amazing mobile minesweeper
by Chiweweman on 2018/02/04 14:23
I love this app it's really great and has many different themes you could choose including the original non flashy effect theme that most people love. It has adds but they are skip able with out any wait time. It has the original 3 difficulties as well as a custom option. Would recommend to minesweeper addicts for on the go.
Brings back memories
by Caligirl💙 on 2018/01/31 05:09
Used to love this game back in the 90’s, crazy how it not on my paperweight computer anymore. This game can get addicting at times, love how you can change the difficulty or appearance. Sometimes when I am to focused on the game, the vibration from clicking on a mine scares me lol, but I love it at the same time!

I’ve playing Minesweeper probably since around the mid 90s. Sometimes I find it difficult to put it down until I can’t see straight due to being so tired that I can’t see straight. Thanks for a GREAT time.
Too many “guess” plays.
by JGrant24 on 2018/01/19 04:23
I used to love this game on windows PC’s as a kid. My number one complaint with this app is the so, so frequent times you HAVE to completely guess. The layout will work in multiple ways, so you’re forced to just pick one. That’s even on the advanced, or whatever is below the hardest difficulty. I gave up attempting the hardest on this app due to getting so far along and forced to pick with no concrete evidence. I can’t recall ever running into on the mid difficulty and very rare on the expert with pc. May want to tweak your algorithms a bit.
Good but nagware
by AG4C on 2018/01/19 02:57
This is a faithful implementation of the classic Microsoft game, but the nagging to leave a review (which did work in the end) is annoying and so are the full screen pop up ads, especially when in the middle of a game and you turn the screen off for a bit then turn it back on. I’d pay a buck for an ad-free version.
Nice update
by Could be much more fun on 2018/01/18 00:40
Just switched over to Spica minesweeper recently. Games works well, but was bit small for my big thumbs. Just received the latest update with iPhone X support. Big improvement. Enough for me to upgrade the app. Thanks.

by Lizzyaw1 on 2018/01/06 09:40
Great game—almost exactly like the old game that was loaded on the old windows machines. Do they still do that? There are several different backgrounds to choose from (even in the free version). Only minor difference I’ve noticed is that when you touch a number that doesn’t have the correct number of bombs flagged, it doesn’t show which ones are options. Like I said, very minor difference, and one that really doesn’t affect gameplay. Great job!

A Bit Needy
by AKDude2Go on 2017/12/30 17:13
I have played literally 4 times since installing the app 10 minutes ago. Now they want me to rate it. I’m giving it a 2 simply because I don’t think there has been enough time for a proper review. The reason I’m not giving a 1 is because I have played the game before and quite liked it. I think this is a great game for those occasions when I want to relax a bit but not shut my brain completely off. I find the game interesting and beneficial for developing simple logic and reasoning skills. I would recommend it as a standard app for your device.
Very nice

There should be a way to send “hey” back to the developers when one of their maps give’s one’s or two’s and it explodes and the true numbers should have been 3 or otherwise. Maybe at least a number on the map.

Great game and only one small complaint
by mkbuzz1 on 2017/11/18 21:18
I've had this game on my phone since 2013 and have about 17,000 games played. Overall it is a great game and everything you could want in a minesweeper game. My only complaint is I wish there was a way to reduce the amount of time required to tap and hold to mark/flag a square. I have hold duration set to the lowest time setting and it still seems like it takes a while and slows me down a bit. It used to be a great duration for me but as I got better and faster the lowest setting is still a bit too long and slows me down. This is a small complaint though and I have yet to find a minesweeper game as great as this one!

Perfect functionality, only small issues
by ethangamer12 on 2017/03/05 20:40
I have been playing Spica minesweeper for about a year, and it is just like the minesweeper we know and love. You are able to change backgrounds, map size, and is just an overall good job by Spica. However, I do have one small complaint with the app. When you are making a custom map size, it is very difficult to get the size and number of bombs you want. It can be done, but it takes awhile and I feel this issue could be easily circumvented by Spica. Lastly, and my MOST IMPORTANT tip to all of you is that you may be frustrated by the pop up ads that appear every once in a while. You actually don't have to wait for the "X" to appear, you can just tap the top right corner while the ad is playing and the ad will close out. This is a really helpful tip!!
Best Minesweeper Game
by LittleChuck3 on 2016/05/22 01:50
This plays like the old version on MS Windows without the distracting, flashy glitter of the current version, so it is much more playable. In addition, instead of just having three levels of play, it has an arbitrary number of levels because you can set whatever complexity you wish to have regarding board size, square size, and mine density. I play with my device filled border to border with small squares and at a 15% greater mine density than the highest level on Windows making the play much tougher. I play for speed, so I don't guess where mines are, only where I believe there are no mines. This way all the mines appear when clicking the last free space. The adjustable sizes and mine density make this an excellent game.
Great game and only one small complaint

Faithful version of MS game
by Liveactionsteve on 2016/12/05 18:02
Very enjoyable and faithful rendition of the Windows game. I very much enjoy those situations when skill can be used to solve the puzzle. Also I like the stats that the app keeps. I am trying to get a 75% success rate on the medium game. The problem with the game, for me, is that there are too many cases where one has to guess. This means that sometimes a loss is due to a wrong guess, and other times due to a mistake. I would like to distinguish between the two. I wish there were some features that could avoid or overcome the guesswork. Maybe, for example, allowing a peek when one or two mines remain. Minesweeper purists could turn off such a feature.
Great app!
by rdh2dmd on 2017/03/10 22:59
It is very close to the original PC version.. in fact it's better! I just realized you can adjust the lag time for flagging the mines and also the touch sensitivity. I love that feature! I'm still trying to figure out how there are players who completed the easy level in 1 second - best I could do is 10, but I'll keep trying. I will say that just like the PC version I hate it when the game comes down to chance. I think most of us hate that in a game of logic and focus. But oh well, still better than reading political posts on FB, so 5 stars.
MINESWEEPER IS A DRUG
by I love it<357864 on 2018/06/01 05:20
Do not download this game unless you want to develop a full blown addiction! I’ve spent countless hours playing this. I’ve been playing for so long that the speed at which I’ve come to play is FATAL. Literally I die within a minute because I’ve gotten so fast at recognizing where the bombs are that I oversee mistakes that result in sudden DEATH and it’s so frustrating that I have to play again. I don’t recommend this game unless you want all of your relationships to fall apart and insomnia because you cannot stop playing minesweeper. This isn’t a choice anymore.
A Bit Needy
by AKDude2Go on 2017/12/30 17:13
I have played literally 4 times since installing the app 10 minutes ago. Now they want me to rate it. I’m giving it a 2 simply because I don’t think there has been enough time for a proper review. The reason I’m not giving a 1 is because I have played the game before and quite liked it. I think this is a great game for those occasions when I want to relax a bit but not shut my brain completely off. I find the game interesting and beneficial for developing simple logic and reasoning skills. I would recommend it as a standard app for your device.
Takes me back
by Lizzyaw1 on 2018/01/06 09:40
Great game—almost exactly like the old game that was loaded on the old windows machines. Do they still do that? There are several different backgrounds to choose from (even in the free version). Only minor difference I’ve noticed is that when you touch a number that doesn’t have the correct number of bombs flagged, it doesn’t show which ones are options. Like I said, very minor difference, and one that really doesn’t affect gameplay. Great job!
Almost a great version of Minesweeper
by Highway Bubba on 2019/04/15 11:57
Likes: The ads are not obtrusive at the bottom of the screen After finally finding the setting to change the mode to flag instead of the green boarder I like the mode appearance Works almost like the original game Can set custom difficulty levels So far have not had a need to just guess at a flag location. Other mine games I tried tended to have corners with two or more squares remaining and no hint as to which held the last mine forcing a guess that was often incorrect Dislike: Question marks to flag possible mines do not work at all though there is a setting in the menu. I cannot place a question mark. My previous game by a different company allowed a question mark to indicate a possible mine location. That game is no longer available so I went with this one. Poor help or instructions available
Too many “guess” plays.
by JGrant24 on 2018/01/19 04:23
I used to love this game on windows PC’s as a kid. My number one complaint with this app is the so, so frequent times you HAVE to completely guess. The layout will work in multiple ways, so you’re forced to just pick one. That’s even on the advanced, or whatever is below the hardest difficulty. I gave up attempting the hardest on this app due to getting so far along and forced to pick with no concrete evidence. I can’t recall ever running into on the mid difficulty and very rare on the expert with pc. May want to tweak your algorithms a bit.
Barely functional.
by Keila labelle on 2019/02/10 20:36
App is barely functional. Settings are arbitrary and hardly work. Changing the sensitivity & other settings barely makes any difference in play, touch screen sensitivity is slow regardless of my settings. I know this is the app and not my phone because other apps are more receptive than this one with equal movement & speed. There are times where the grid will not even register that I am touching it for more than ten seconds (solution: close the app and reopen it for another 10 seconds of gameplay). Ridiculous! If my scores weren’t saved on this app I would be shifting to a new app immediately.
Good app, one small problem
by abcdefghijkayz on 2018/04/17 14:05
I love this app. I've had it for years and play it all the time. Very true to the original PC version. My only issue is that sometimes when I am holding a square to tag it as a bomb, it doesn't register and detonates the bomb. As a suggestion, maybe the game shouldn't immediately reveal all other bombs. Instead, give the player the option to "undo" (a limited amount of times) or "reveal bombs" and start a new game.
Number one stunner
by Caroline_has_ig on 2019/04/20 15:47
Diehard minesweeper player here. I am absolutely in love with this app. I made the mistake of deleting it from my phone, and I nearly had a panic attack when I couldn’t find it again! I downloaded a dozen other minesweeper apps, in the hunt for this one. No other app compares to this one’s reactive speed, and ease of navigation, which is extremely vital. This app is the best one!
Amazing mobile minesweeper
by Chiweweman on 2018/02/04 14:23
I love this app it's really great and has many different themes you could choose including the original non flashy effect theme that most people love. It has adds but they are skip able with out any wait time. It has the original 3 difficulties as well as a custom option. Would recommend to minesweeper addicts for on the go.
Bombs not being correctly counted
by deadLights on 2017/04/26 07:49
I thought I was playing this incorrectly, until I looked up the instructions online. If a mine is diagonal to a number it is still supposed to be counted, but in this version it is only counted sometimes. I just lost a game, so I decided to screenshot what I was looking at, so I can review it and get better. However what I saw were bombs next to 1's that were diagonal (and that counts) and then I saw a 1 with a bomb to the left, a bomb underneath and a bomb located diagonally south east of the 1. What's the point of playing if the numbers don't correctly alert you to the numbers of bombs near by? None.
Amazing!
by For ages 10-18 on 2016/07/22 07:09
I haven't become this addicted to a game in years. That's crazy considering I'm an avid gamer and play many more expensive titles, but minesweeper is amazing, and I can't believe how late I am to the party, and how nobody has ever shown me this! As for the app, it's equally great. It times you, has multiple difficulty settings, and even a custom setting if you're too good for advanced. 😂
Very fun skill based single player game!
by Jessica-Rose Arriaga on 2017/02/02 14:55
When I was young, I used to play this game all the time on the computer. I thought it was just a brainless guessing game, when in reality it is incredibly thought provoking! This app looks just like the original old-school minesweeper. It's awesome and a great game to play if you want something ultimately pointless meanwhile keeping your mind active.
Love it
by Croe01 on 2016/11/16 01:17
Took a small while to get used to it because I had never played this on a mobile app, but I got the hang of it quite quickly. I wish I could reset the stats though, because at the beginning I lost many games because I'd push the wrong button by accident, even when I knew where the mines were.
A solid port
by Tristan Berger on 2016/09/13 05:56
Faithfully replicates the Windows XP game's mechanics and appearance, modifying adeptly to work well with the iPhone's touchscreen and small screen size. Haven't found a bug. Ads are fully absent during gameplay, showing up only on game over screens and menus, and can be removed for $2. Couldn't ask for a better Minesweeper for iOS.
Always help me find a way out
by LittleTwoHa on 2017/05/03 05:19
I've been played this game for almost 5 years. The magic side of this game is that it's always helpful when I have a bad mood. When I played it, I feel better every time.I regard this game as my friend who always help me find a way out when I was stuck in a place in my heart.
Probably my most favorite app
by Dgjfcggg on 2016/02/15 19:55
I've been playing this app for several years now, and I just love the simplicity and the math involved in it. It's a wonderful adaptation from the classic computer game, and I can't imagine how they can improve it by any means. Maybe it's just me, but the game just captures my attention.
Brings back memories
by Caligirl💙 on 2018/01/31 05:09
Used to love this game back in the 90’s, crazy how it not on my paperweight computer anymore. This game can get addicting at times, love how you can change the difficulty or appearance. Sometimes when I am to focused on the game, the vibration from clicking on a mine scares me lol, but I love it at the same time!
Just like old times
by Daniellukemurphy on 2018/10/31 13:18
It’s minesweeper. Like old windows. It’s just like old times. The spelling app knows what I’m talking about. Spell old words. Make points. Evade detection. Excellent. Keep on finding words. Love comes walking in. Some kind of alien. And then you pull the string. Love comes walking in. I detect it in. Some kind of alien. Love comes walking in. Rocking guitar.
Favorite app
by Ellsss13 on 2016/05/06 19:46
This is seriously my favorite app and I've been obsessed for almost 3 years, but recently I've had problems with it. Sometimes it freezes and shuts down completely, and I've noticed a pretty bad lag most of the time in general. If we could get a new update with bug fixes that would be awesome!
Good but nagware
by AG4C on 2018/01/19 02:57
This is a faithful implementation of the classic Microsoft game, but the nagging to leave a review (which did work in the end) is annoying and so are the full screen pop up ads, especially when in the middle of a game and you turn the screen off for a bit then turn it back on. I’d pay a buck for an ad-free version.
Been playing this app for years
by Hatenot on 2018/05/06 06:16
I love this app. It has features that other minesweeper apps do not. If I could change anything, it would be the slider for the amount of mines in custom mode. It is to sensitive and it’s difficult to get the precise amount of mines I want. If not for that I would have given 5 stars instead of 4.
On the go brush up your brain
by 15.16 seconds 9x9 on 2017/02/10 00:51
I really like this app because I use it when I'm bored, on the train, in a car, walking, and even when I wake up. This is just a great way to keep yourself entertained and exercise your brain a but at the same time. Thanks for making this app! ;D
Good Basic Game
by karma0694 on 2017/06/29 17:09
The free version is good. Reminds me of the original. He game functions perfectly with no apparent bugs or weird glitches. I don't like that you can't 'level up' or change the size/difficulty of the board. In the original you could customize the game, dictate the number of bombs etc. Overall it's a great way to exercise your brain but could be better.
Simple and easy to use
by MikeC2020 on 2016/06/01 03:16
Obviously not a lot to minesweeper but this version is simple and easy to use. Not a ton of adds. Touch screen sensitivity can be adjusted to you liking. Highly recommend for those that loved minesweeper on the computer.
Very good
by Tranforg on 2017/02/27 04:54
A very nice little piece of minesweeper. It even has the old touch where you hit the face to start a new game. One thing it doesn't tell you is if you have all mines flagged around a number, if you tap the number it reveals all numbers around it. A good time saver
Reminds me of my old desktop dinosaur!
by Noobiggie on 2017/09/27 03:21
Scrolling through the App Store for a new time waster and came across this. I used to play it all of the time when I was chained to a desk and a mouse. This is the same great game that has me smacking my head from time to time. Great job!
Guessing game.
by Yeahwordswordswords on 2017/05/23 15:42
It is pretty insane how often I have to guess playing this game. I didn't have this issue anywhere near as often when I'd play on Windows. I'll clear and entire advanced map other that two, and what do you know, I have to guess. That means the several minutes it took me to clear the map, can be wasted by a 50-50 chance. That crap is pretty insulting when you get it wrong.
Great Distraction when needed
by Khbkjbkjb on 2016/05/14 09:06
Life us stressful due to various catastrophic life situations we cannot control. Mine sweeper allows me to use my brain, but also provides a momentary reprieve from "real life". But do have to make sure I only play a few games in a row. It can be addictive.
Very nice version
by PuzlFan on 2016/03/17 20:15
This is a great replication of the original computer game. The lag for the flag makes my PC scores hard to beat. It's also way too easy to "stutter" the tap and set off a mine. Although I don't know what would be better than how the game is set up now. I enjoy the different themes - but cake? Really? 😉
It's Okay
by HollowSaudade on 2016/03/10 19:15
I love the game itself. However, I have never before experienced lag in a simple game like this one. Are you kidding me? LAG in MINESWEEPER? This is ridiculous! I don't mind the ad at the bottom. Do what you need to do. But if it makes the most simply programmed game in the world LAG then you have a serious problem. It's annoying and makes the game SO hard to play.
Not one win in two years
by Momprunty on 2017/08/18 18:28
I'm baffled at the 5 star reviews. I have had this App for two years and it comes down to a guessing game at the very end EVERY TIME. I keep thinking that they will fix the fact, that at some point in the game, there is no logical choice but to cross your fingers and hope you don't detonate a bomb. Nothing but a huge disappointment after getting 98% through the game and having it literally blow up on you right at the end.
Great version of minesweeper
by jrrob75 on 2017/04/03 18:25
I play this one a lot so I went ahead and paid to remove ads. I like the various color schemes as well. Only complaint is that it's hard to be precise with the sliders when making a custom board.
Hands down best Minesweeper app
by New-ish player on 2016/09/02 05:12
Been playing this app since I got my 4s years ago. Still sticking with it because it is simply the best. Free advanced customization options set this app apart. Love that old school minesweeper feel? This app is for you.
Nice update
by Could be much more fun on 2018/01/18 00:40
Just switched over to Spica minesweeper recently. Games works well, but was bit small for my big thumbs. Just received the latest update with iPhone X support. Big improvement. Enough for me to upgrade the app. Thanks.
Just like the windows game
by RAJJ REB on 2016/12/27 05:47
Works great and provides the same scenarios that I remember. If other reviews complain about being put in too many 50/50 scenarios, that's how the game always has been. It's what makes it challenging.
Minesweeper addict
by Qui-Scott on 2016/12/12 20:27
I'm updating this rating because I have had MANY Advance levels I nearly beat and came down to where is was a 50/50 chance. This should not be the case 20+ times in a row, especially having quite a few multiple 50/50 chances. Had 3 spots in the mist of confirmed flagged spots. Once I did the rest, I saw I had 1 bomb and 3 spaces surrounded by bombs. 1st click - Done. I've never seen this before on minesweeper. If the app gets fixed, then I'll rate 5*.
Addicted
by highimlynn on 2018/01/19 04:27
I’ve playing Minesweeper probably since around the mid 90s. Sometimes I find it difficult to put it down until I can’t see straight due to being so tired that I can’t see straight. Thanks for a GREAT time.
Fun Application
by SHarris840 on 2016/09/07 23:21
Mine Sweeper is a game that has been around for a long time. With some new additions it is still one of the most challenging and fun games to be able to play. I still get frustrated when I blow up. Very challenging and fun to play.
Tried others, like this the best
by cosmiccath on 2017/12/14 20:34
I still miss the old Windows game with the top 10 scores, but this one has some nice stats and has the same look and feel of the Windows game I played so many times.
Pretty awesome
by ESlike711 on 2016/09/19 02:09
So much better than Minesweeper Classic Free by Breadwallet. The ads are at the bottom, and I don't even notice them. They don't pop up, I don't get redirected to the App Store, they don't make any noise. They're out of the way. And there different styles you can choose. I like the classic because it's what I grew up with. The only problem is when you close out of the program and reopen it, it doesn't remember that you switched to flag mode. So I tap on a mine to flag it, and I end up blowing it up. Wish they would fix that. But other than that, it's great.
Forced to guess 80% of time
by Bad Guesser on 2017/11/03 01:53
I crush at minesweeper but am forced to guess at the end of almost every game on advanced level. So frustrating. Other than that, the app works great and is user friendly.
Addiction!!!
by Spainglish on 2016/04/16 04:45
I seriously play this gain daily. I can't get enough of it! I love how you can change the mode, it helps me play faster. This is the best game ever... And I love that it is so stimulating for the brain so I don't feel guilty playing... It's problem solving to a tee!
Algorithm is correct
by Crabby117 on 2017/09/30 20:25
There are quite a few versions of minesweeper out there with poor, I.e. flawed, coding. I've been playing this one for years and have never come across an error. Nice for passing the time.
Heck of a game
by Sweeperstar🌠 on 2017/06/11 02:39
Good golly, I have never played a game that entertained me more than this. It's engaging design and wonderful stratagem style gameplay really keep ya on your toes. If you ever need a pick me up after a long day with your cats, you're gonna want to start here.
