This retro minesweeper game is just like the original and provides great fun for all ages.

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!

Really Recommend (but fix some things please)

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.

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 game but...

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.
