"looks awesome, even to a person who's already played Minesweeper for hundreds of hours. That’s precisely the same old good game, but with the HD graphics and spherical (aka planet-like) gameplay field. Find mines, flag them, take a guess and die horribly. Fun, fun time."
--AppSale Review

"A brilliant take on an old classic... A brilliant challenge, but easy to get into if you’re waiting for the train or just have some minutes to kill....the game provides a challenge, and is very entertaining. It’s also great to see such a classic game being taken to new levels!"

Customer Reviews

Best Minesweeper app in the app store, but still needs work.

Pros:
*Great Graphics and art design.
*Unique twist on a classic, unlike many of the cheap minesweeper knock-offs out there.

Cons:
*Despite the work the developer has put in towards resolving it, the controls can be finicky at times and result in a lot of accidental losses.
*The information text and icons in-game are heavily anti-aliased and low-res, looking pretty bad against the otherwise outstanding graphics.
*The gloss on the buttons in the main menu makes them look somewhat cheap and plasticy looking.
*No sound effects, and not a whole lot of feedback either, making both winning and especially losing feel anti-climactic.
*No pause button?

...also, an option to disable the tap-and-hold menu would be nice, as it just gets in the way for me.

Great play but...

I really enjoy this Mae and the play is great but I end up blowing myself far too many times due to a double tap being misinterpreted as a drag. Then the second tap ( which should be a double tap if you make garage out of it) blows up some random space. Game over. Drive me nuts and makes me want to stop playing, but I can't ...

Fast tapping

After a few games I am used to the new fast tapping feature and love it! Watch out game center I'll be in that number one slot in no time! It's fun to see how insanely fast some others have been if only my fingers and brain worked so quick!
