Minesweeper

Miss the old layout but this is still my favorite mind-rest. Minesweeper just quit working and I can't find it to uninstall. It says it can't play to this device.

Love the updates

Daily challenges are a great way to keep me interested. I'm a longtime fan of the game and this has made me start playing it more often again.

Love the Daily Challenges!

The daily challenges for Minesweeper are great. They make me think in a different way than the regular game I've been playing for years, especially the detonator. I also love the Achievements awards; creates a new spin on what I'm trying to do, sometimes even losing on purpose. More achievements please! I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the adventure game doesn't quite work. The right edge of the game is hidden for some reason, so I can't see where the exit, dangers, or coins are. Not sure if that's just my computer or a flaw in the game itself.

Windows 10 Trashes Minesweeper's Adventure Mode

Love the game, hate the app. The adventure mode of Minesweeper has ben trashed by poor graphic layering and lousy screen-size boundary detection. The right edge tiles, including the exit and blocks hiding traps in the 4 columns of tiles along the far right edge cannot be seen until the game is zoomed to a level that makes it difficult to see the context clearly enough to proceed safely. Minesweeper needs an immediate update to repair it. Oh yeah, Windows 10 needs immediate repair too, it doesn't multi-task well at all. Windows 10 is slow, kludgy and it keeps closing apps that should stay open when multi-tasking. What's the point of Windows without solid, reliable multi-tasking? With the introduction of Windows 10 Microsoft has given everyone the best reason ever to migrate to Linux.

I like it but...

I love minesweeper and I like this app. The adventure mode is cute and fun but it consistently messes up when I am almost finished with a level. I can fix it most of the time by switching in and out of full screen. Sometimes it won't even show the end. It's very disappointing.

Adventure mode issues

The classic minesweeper games are fun, as well as the daily challenges, but the adventure mode is practically undoable because upon reaching the far right end of the board, most of the remaining board is invisible.

Great for the brain!

Minesweeper uses logic to solve. The more you play, the better you get. These are great brain exercises!
