Minesweeper is a classic, throwback PC game that provides hours of fun. The game is simple, try to avoid the bombs to clear the minefield to win the game! Strategy and logic are needed to navigate the multiple levels of difficulty. Monitor your progress with the brand new stats tracker to keep tabs on your progress and try to beat your best times! This retro minesweeper game is just like the original and provides great fun for all ages.
If you like old classic games such as chess, checkers, backgammon, solitaire, freecell as well as classic puzzle games like sudoku, tetris, and crossword puzzles then this game is for you!
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!

Ratings and Reviews
Faithful reproduction, but with a fatal flaw
This a faithful reproduction of the old Minesweeper that I used to play on early versions of Windows and, in terms of game play, works well.
However, there is one problem with the game - the “Flag” button uses two shades of grey that are almost indistinguishable unless the light is right, and you are holding the device at the right angle - it is far too easy to blow up a game inadvertently by thinking you have tapped on the “Flag” button and not noticing that actually you didn’t. Why not two easily distinguishable colours, instead of two shades of grey. This loses the game two stars for me.
And....ads, in a paid game? Really?
Still not as good as a year ago
It’s been nearly a year since this game was handed to a new developer and ruined. Appreciate that the developer has been responsive to feedback, but still in all that time, hasn’t been able to fix the basics—
-new stats page still doesn’t work. Expert games play are counted in intermediate but expert games won are counted in expert
-average time does not calculate correctly (currently looks like an average of my top three scores since the update)
-flag button in the top right is still too hard to press
-border around game often shows up incorrectly (have to open settings or switch to landscape to fix)
-ads still occasionally appear on startup and are present in settings page
Added ads to a PAID AD-FREE game. Still surprises me how this developer can find another way to ruin a classic
PS Landscape mode doesn’t work now; as far as I can tell the update did not improve anything but added ads and removed functionality. Unbelievable and yet believable
Developer Response ,
Update: Hi, Thanks for your review. The pop-up may also be an in-app message to inform our users of new features and games. We will tone down the in-app message so it is less intrusive. Sorry for your experience and thanks for the feedback. -Amber
Hi Ilusion Funesta - Thanks for your feedback. Seriously, it helps us identify things we can improve upon, and identify some of our mistakes, which we definitely made in this last update. I'm happy to tell you that our next update that should be live very soon will fix landscape mode, increased the sensitivity of the flag button, and get rid of that end of game popup. As for the stats, we apologize for that as well and are working on a fix. A future update will work out these kinks, and we will incorporate game center as well as to not lose high scores for future updates.
Brain Candy (for those w/small to med sized brains)
Easy to learn and for some to master. Inexpensive, low tech game. I love Minesweeper! When I need a little stress breaker, I play Minesweeper. When I need to cool down,I play Minesweeper. When I feel I just need to exercise my brain, I play Minesweeper.
Competing with myself, I try to break my time record every time I play.
Oh heck, I just like playing Minesweeper.
Hope you will, too.
