Miss old Minesweeper. Adds some neat stuff. Add adverts

When I upgraded to Win10 from Win7 I noticed within a couple hours that Minesweeper was gone. I missed it and instantly went looking for a replacement. Microsoft Minesweeper is the best I found with >10mins of looking. Pros: -You have your classic Minesweeper here, with Easy, Normal, and Expert levels as well as Custom as before. That's all good! -In addition you have a quirky and creative "Adventure Mode" where you play a man dodging 'Traps' (Mines) and looking for treasures. There's more to it than that, check it out. -Daily Challenges. These provide very unique goals to your game and change out daily. Play every day to earn medals and stuff. Cons: They added Advertisements. I was so very skeptical and a bit upset when I saw microtransactions on a minesweeper game. About all they are for is removing these ads. Thankfully, you rarely get any that are in the way or stop you from playing, and those video ads can be muted easily. Overall: Remove ads & this would be 5 stars

It's very difficult to clear all blocks!

I learned to play Minesweeper several years ago. But "Microsoft Minesweeper" is a little more difficult than the original "Minesweeper". The Daily challengers are very difficult in "Hard" and "Expert" choices. When a daily challenge is to clear all the bombs in a limit time is very difficult to me, but I enjoy it. I recommend this game for people with experience or if is a beginner. It can be played solo or with family and/or friends. I recommend the "Daily Challenges", it's very fun and difficult.

Used to love it now I can't get a decent download

I used to love the Adventure part of the game now even if I pay to upgrade my game board on the right side is missing and I can't see the whole far right where the exit is to finish the game. I've tried downloading it again and again and even with the Premium game it comes out the same. I used to really love the game. It's very addictive and I've loved it but I can't even play it the way it is. by Liz

Sweep for Mines

Stress relief

Minesweeper, especially the Detonation mode, is a quick way to let a little stress out. The games are simple, fast and fun. You don't spend hours playing the game and then feel guilty for abrogating your other duties.

A greater update to the popular Minesweeper. I really enjoy the challenges to keep me interested in playing.

I LOVE this game!

Adventure mode was a revelation for me- I loved it.... but since I upgraded to Windows 10, adventure mode doesn't work anymore. Similar Issues to what others have posted- the right side of the screen disappears. Sad!

More Variety

Minesweeper challenges are varied with the new game options and daily challenges. At the start, I was intimidated, but in a few days, I have been completing each daily challenge set! The new treasure hunt game was a big surprise (pun intended).
