Great Gameplay

I love the challenge, it seems to awaken a good portion of my brain, nice exercise, thanks. I love the cute variations also, very creative.

A really good way to exercise your logic muscles.

This edition of the old standard really opens up with a lot of new challenges. Between the daily challenge, explorer mode I haven't got around to attempt the rest yet. This is a game younglings will enjoy for the fun graphics, while older folk can work their logic skills. The only fault I have with this game, and it goes back to the original edition, is that sometimes you get into a spot where logic cannot determine your next move and you have to rely on nothing but luck. Annoying. In my mind, a logic puzzle should always leave you in a position where logic solves the next move . . . though it may (and should) present a challenge to find it.

as addictive as ever!

I am finding the new version of mine sweeper equal if not superior to the version I've loved since grade school and windows XP. The downside is it is addictive... very.

Microsoft Minesweeper

Absolutely love the daily Challenges. This game requires a little thought sometimes, but it's fun each and every time. And every game can be won! It may take several tries, but winning the hard ones is worth the effort. Great games, great variety.

Why can't I just have plain Minesweeper???

I enjoy minesweeper greatly. I do not enjoy this version of it though. The game is slow, unresponsive, and I can't hold down a mouse button like I used to in order to quickly move through the puzzle. I get better times on my phone . The adventure mode is fun, but I can't see the right side of the board and often die when I guess when the exit is. How useless.
