Default Best Minesweeper Game?

What's the best/hardest minesweeper game in the App Store? I've been playing touchmines, but I don't think the promised updates will ever come. So, I've been looking into different versions. Mines In Space looked OK, but I don't want side mini-games, I just want a great minesweeper. Minesmaniak was great (the lite version), but only had a 12x12 board at max. Also, I kind of like good graphics/good style in the game (i.e. not like Minesweeper Classic)

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!!!

Mines In Space was what I chose. Great graphics. Achievements.

There really aren't side mini-games. There are just several variations of the game which helps to make this offering better than the rest (in my opinion). You can choose to play the variations or stick with what you know. I did not see any other Minesweeper clone that offered much more than a straight game of Minesweeper and this one offers more.

The one negative is having to scroll around the board. I'm not sure how the other games deal with this. You don't see the entire board on a screen so you have to scroll around. I've gotten used to it, but it makes it a bit different from what I'm used to under Windows.

I rather like Sweep! actually. It's different -- not your average Minesweeper game. There's a free lite version to try it out. The visuals may not be incredibly blingy but I think they work well, and the gameplay is great.

Mines in Space is extremely well done. I enjoy the mine sweeper variations it provides as well.

Boom! is my favorite by far. Has many board sizes and many choices for amount of bombs.
