Ratings and Reviews
Almost perfect port of minesweeper!
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)
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.
