minesweeper-ios-androidI am quite sure that anyone who grew up using Windows 95 all the way to Windows 2000 and beyond would have had the experience of playing with some of the more basic games on that desktop operating system – Minesweeper, Solitaire, Hearts, and perhaps Pinball. Minesweeper in Expert level often requires you to make a guess right at the end, and I swear that the game was programmed to make you lose at that point in time regardless of which square you flagged. Having said that, it proved to be an effective time killer, and we are glad to announce that Minesweeper has now made its way as a free download on both Android and iOS platforms.

The Android version of the title arrives with a similar retro 90s greyish look, although it will introduce a web leaderboard in order to keep track of how good you are in sweeping mines, not to mention featuring integration with Google Play Games. A ‘Noob’ mode has also been thrown into the mix for those who have not played Minesweeper at all in their life, where it lets you get into the game quickly. As for the iPhone version of Minesweeper, it will feature different skins, letting you choose from the classic or other colorful options, with it being able to synchwith Apple’s Game Center.
