Amazing Upgrade to a Classic Game

I've loved minesweeper since I was a kid, but unfortunately playing the same old game types became tedious over time. After upgrading to windows 8, I was shocked to see how well the game has improved. Daily challenges are AMAZING, because they incorporate different game types than just the classic version. Adventure mode is also very fun, but you should all download the standalone treasure hunt game instead.

It's great!

Not only does this app have original Minesweeper, but also other fun modes. It has an adventure mode, which incorporates Minesweeper into a roguelike-dungeon game. Also, there are daily challenges that have rules that differ from original Minesweeper. Really, there are no complaints

Great new mind puzzle

Very Entertaining

It's a great way to pass time enjoyably. It's enough of a challenge to keep me thinking but easy enough that I don't get frustrated and give up. Love it!

the daily challenges and the adventure game is great. I enjoy them all.

Adventure mode is amazing. Very unhappy with the ad-free model though - would be happy to pay a reasonable one-time fee, but yearly subscription for minesweeper from Microsoft? Yikes.

The great classic game with a twist

I love the daily challenges and the different ways to play the game. Great for killing a little time, the coffee break or at the end of lunchtime.

Very fun and addictive. Thank you!

Awesome but has flows

It is really addictive and fun to play but it has some flows. Sometimes it doesn't sync with the cloud and the daily challenges can lag and freeze for about for 1-2 minutes every time you finishes a daily challenge.

Oldie but goodie

I've used Microsoft operating system for over 30 years, but have never played Minesweeper until now. I like the logic involved and the variety of games and challenges here.
