Zoom in!

You have to zoom in with multitouch (just like in every similar iPhone game:) ) Also if you scroll with one finger you can easily move around the zoom... This way I think it is really easy to tap on the right squares. I cannot remember a minesweeper that is so easy to control. Nice zooming in, easy to use scrolling...
You should revisit your ratings...

Anyway, I have been waiting for a good minesweeper for a long time, and I like this one sooooo much.


Good old mine sweeper! The graphics are good, but could be crisper when you zoom way in on the comb/board. It would be nice if you could move around when you hold your finger down to place a flag, because if you try to move when the magnified area is shown, it disappears and you have to attempt again.

The square board logic is messed up. Some squares will report 2, and another will say 1, even if there truly is 2 adjacent bombs

Not enough GC options

No matter how fancy you make mine sweeper look, it will still be mine sweeper, though there is a bit of variety in the game modes. When it comes to Game Center integration however this game is quite lacking. There is multi-player, but there are no leaderboards or achievements at all.
