--- Minesweeper Classic Instructions ---

The goal of Minesweeper is to clear all the spaces without mines. The game is over when all spaces that are not mines are revealed.

To start a new game, press the smiley button.

Tap a square to reveal it.
Hold* a square to flag it, an animation will let you know when it's flagged.
Hold* a square again to unflag it.
Tap a flagged square to toggle it between flag and question mode.

*If using 3D Touch, tap a square hard instead of holding.

A square with a number lets you know how many of the 8 adjacent squares contain mines.
If a square with a number is touching the correct amount of flags, tap on the number to reveal adjacent squares.

Options can be viewed by clicking the bar button in the top-left corner.
The timer will be automatically paused when the game is not in focus.

I find it refreshing to find an app that does not drown you in advertisements, and brings back this classic in full. Even better, the only fault I can think of when playing is that the sounds are not to my tastes (I'm more partial to 'clicky' sounds than 'bloopy' myself, though it gives it an even more retro feel). Excellent app overall!

Would be very nice if not for mistakes in the algorithm

Nice, simple interface and no ads. Unfortunately, there are mistakes in the algorithm that make finishing (advanced games at least) impossible. Correct the programming and the game would be wonderful.

For example, a tile in the corner is marked with a '3.' This indicates that all three squares next to it are bombs. However, the tile adjacent to the bomb squares on the other side is frequently marked in a way that implies that the corner tiles are not bombs at all. Not only confusing, but as soon as one uncovers the squares with a logical inconsistency, the game marks one of previously clear bombs as false, causing a forfeit.

Hello! I am confident that there are no errors. However, if you believe there are, please send a screenshot to me via the App Support so I can investigate.

Plays well, no ads!

Really appreciate this game. I like the press and hold for a flag instead having to press somewhere else to toggle plus you can adjust the hold time. Thank you for making this truly free - no cost and no ads. Plus I like the default size that fills the screen with no scrolling.
