    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........!

    By far the best minesweeper app in the app store

    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? ;-)

    I got this on the day it came out and still play it every day The achievements give goals to always work towards and the new play modes are even better than the classic mode, especially imposter. I do wish it didn't suck so much battery life though, it seems to take more power than games like Fieldrunners.

    Thanks for the info. I did have a look on www.appshopper.com for the price-change when the price drop was announced here, but when I checked the site the info hadn't filtered through yet at that time...

    Great game

    I only just got around to playing Mines in Space. It's been "sitting" in a mountain of apps I've purchased and never used. It's a great game. I thought that no-one could do anything really exciting with a minesweeper game. I couldn't have been more wrong. The asthetics of the game are excellent. There is more than one type of game. These are different variations of the minesweeper genre. My favourite is the Imposter game where you have a revealed board with all the numbers already on it. They show how many asteroids there are on the adjacent tiles. Hidden on the board are some imposters. They are the aliens who are disguised as asteroids. You have to determine which asteroids are the imposters. All within a time limit. There is an achievments based system where you earn XP and this unlocks different levels of the games and special "awards". This is a very polished all round game. Heaps of fun and I highly recommend it.

    This one is a MUST BUY for minesweeper fans.

    Not only does it include several puzzles but also trophies awards for players who can accomplished a certain target.

    I had bought several paid minesweeper game, iMineSweeper and they can't beat this game. Beautiful graphics and futuristic BGM and sound effect really does make this game look GREAT. :D

    I've been keeping a close eye on this game ever since it came out, but didn't want to buy it because I knew I wasn't good at the classic computer minnesweeper so I hesitated to buy this, but I keep getting tempted by the polished screens which are really nice to look at. Now that there is so much feedback from alot of people here it gave me that little nudge to get me to buy this game so I'll be picking it up now and I'll post my thougts later.

    Pause Screen

    I like the game alot, but I think the playfield should be turned off or hidden better during pause so I can't cheat the timer. Great game though. Later.
