Mines In Space

If you're a fan of minesweeper (like me), then you'll love this game. It's got loads of variations on the classic game, and includes the classic game . The graphics are pretty good, and i think it's a steal at 1.79 (GBP) and $2.99.

Nice one. Been looking for a decent version of Minesweeper for ages. The other modes are ace as well. This is a totally wicked version and damn, I love the music........!

Yesterday Mines from Noah Witherspoon (sp?) arrived at the store. It'S a classic Minsweeper game, it's free and it's one of the best Miniessweeper-clones on the Appstore (previously available on jailbroken devices). The interface is great. It just feels right. The graphic speed/framerate has no problems (most other "classic" Minesweeper games have severe problems drawing the screen). I waited months for that .

Of course it does not have the eye-candy of Mines in Space, but it launches fast, feels right on the iPhone and it's free .

I never played Minesweeper in my life.

I was curious so I picked this game up a week ago or so.

Absolutely fantastic, almost made it to expert mode.

Massively addicting, stable never crashes, achievements to earn, different play variations... This game is staying on my iphone for a loooong time!

Hey, wow... Quite coincedentally, I was thinking about this game this very evening, wondering whether to buy it or not. Good thing thing I didn't buy it then. I decided to hold out for a price drop! :-)
What was its price before? (in Pounds)

Also coincedentally, watching your YouTube video, the one thing I thought the game needed was some kind of "flag lock mode".

Have you been reading my mind or something? ;-)
