Description

Minesweeper – it's all fun and games until that 50/50 guess. So we decided to remove the guessing.

Mineswifter uses an advanced Minesweeper AI to make sure each board is solvable before giving it to you. This lets you skip the nonsense and SWIFTLY go to the boards you actually wanted to play.

PERFECTLY NATURAL

Mineswifter is designed with a modern and beautiful user interface. Customize everything from the background colors to your play style to make the game work exactly the way you want.

REAL HINTS

Every board is solvable, but not every board is easy. That's why we added a hint system that uses the power of the Minesweeper AI to show you exactly which part of the board is solvable next.

UNDO YOUR MISTAKES

Accidentally click on a mine? No problem! Since every board is solvable, there are no game overs – simply click the Undo popover and keep playing.

STAT TRACKING

The main stat tracked in Mineswifter is the perfect game, which is a board completed without mistakes or hints. Try to beat your longest perfect streak or your average time!

DAILY CHALLENGES

Mineswifter also offers daily challenges, which can generally be completed within a few minutes. Check the stats to compare your mine sweeping performance to players from around the world.

What’s New

Version 1.1.0

- no longer explain the "new game" button if players have already pressed the button
- don't track perfect streaks when replaying the same daily challenge
- other minor fixes

Best minesweeper I’ve found on iOS.

Great UI, looks nice, play is very intuitive. I love the way it guarantees that the mines are placed in a way that the entire board can be solved without any need for 50/50 guesses. Knowing that, it adds an extra challenge on harder levels to think through the possibilities and deduce at least one free or mine square that then opens up more clues. If you haven’t played this enough for that to make sense, try a few games and you will see what I mean. Literally hours of fun with this game.

Almost Perfect!

Honestly the best version of Minesweeper i’ve ever seen, in presentation and gameplay (it fixes Minesweeper’s most annoying trait!). However, an initial version significantly nerfed vibrations generated whilst playing the game (such as when tapping tiles), and this severely has severely hindered my enjoyment of the game. The only thing preventing my rating from being 5 Stars (perfection) is that there is not yet an option to enable the old vibration settings!
Also, it would be interesting if we could see our play history for each type of standard puzzle (as in, game played, when, how long, how many mistakes). That would be nice!

The old vibrations were added back in the most recent update, 1.0.7. They were removed in version 1.0.6 but I started getting emails about it and added it back the next day, haha.

The play history sounds like the STATS button, right? It tracks games played, average time, average mistakes, etc.

Love this! Great for no-guessing Minesweeper

Really well polished app, I like the daily challenges and touch vibration. I still like “original” minesweeper but this is great to play games which are always solvable (no guessing) and to just become a better player. Love being able to see stats on other players time and getting a “perfect” score. I do wish the zooming in wouldn’t snap to the edge and that I could recenter more easily, it’s sometimes hard to tap on the edge of my phone. Great app overall!
