Minesweeper is a refreshingly clean, yet authentic interpretation of the classic strategy/puzzle game. The object of the game is to identify all mine squares by revealing all non-mine squares. The best minesweeper experience available.

- Common presets and custom board settings are available.
- Save, load, and replay games.
- Mouse path is tracked with replay, and can be displayed.
- Window can be resized at any time
- Area is always opened on the first click.
- Double-click or press both buttons to reveal adjacent squares.
- A Right-click anywhere after a game, or click the clock to start a new game.
- Best times are tracked in a high score table.
- Chording is available for faster play.
- The Inspector tool shows live game statistics.
- Colors can be changed.

A mouse with two separate buttons is ideal for this game. If you use a trackpad or magic mouse, be sure to enable secondary clicks in your system preferences.

just as good if not better than MS minesweeper

i was addicted to MS minesweeper when i used windows. now i’m addicted to this one. it’s the only game in my dock :-/ much like the original, it loads super quickly no matter what all is running already and plays clean - simple and sleek - so i can twiddle with it when a call comes in on google voice or when waiting for something to up/download. also the color mods are awesome - if anything makes this game better than the original it’s the color mods. i think new MS minesweeper does that, too, but i doubt it still runs as clean as it used to. simple yet awesome addition to your nervous stimulation :)

The right-click foul-ups

I love the game - quick loading, challenging in terms of attention to detail and logic - yet also have had occasional blow-ups caused by a right-click registering as a left-click and a BOOM result. I’ve found that this happens almost exclusively with non-dedicated right-click buttons - the smooth-top Apples, for instance - and not much if at all when right- and left- click buttons are physically distinct.


Cannot flag mine; game never ends (MacBookPro 2016)

The game is simple and fun (all I needed) until I got all the mines identified…but could not get the game to work.

As others have reported, there is no way to actually mark a mine using control-click (right click). right-click cycles through “flag” (not “mine flag”) and question mark. As there is no way to mark the mine, the game never ends unless you intentionally hit a known mine to end the game. Cannot get the rewind or replay or anything else to work. There are no instructions on how to deal with this, and no help reference to a web site.

Sure, it was only 99 cents and I’d like to say you get what you pay for. But at 99 cents, it costs twice what it’s worth.
