Only Minesweeper that I have won several times:) ( or at least have come very close to winning ) Of Course it wasn't easy but still fun never the less! Great game to pass the time and to really get your mind thinking! Best Minesweeper ever! ~Ashley Truckenbrod :)(: <3

Great game

I’ve played this game on PCs and now on a Mac. I’ve always liked it. This is a snazzier version than the PC game. It’s fast and it’s different than most other games.


Fun way to pass time. The game is nice and simple, and can make you think hard! Definitely recommend. Barely takes up any storgae and does not realy use any battery!
