Ratings and Reviews
A rare thing. A developer who actually cares.
I’m changing my review because of outstanding customer service from the developer. When the custom game became unusable following an update, I left a 1-star review. The developer made some suggestions to resolve the issue, I emailed further information, and the issue was fixed in a couple of days. The game now works perfectly in “Custom” mode. The game is a fun-to-play classic with outstanding customer service.

Please use menu View > Original (Command + 1) to resize the board.
Very similar to the classic Microsoft version
Nicely done. Works better with a mouse. The trackpad of a MacBook Pro is almost too sensitive and a slight touch activates a mine even when trying to right-click. That is not the game issue though.
The information given for this game implies there are several levels available. However, I paid $.99 for a very basic game with no indication about how to access more than a very, very basic level. With no apparant way available to contact the developer all I can do is post aone star review here, ask anyone else if they have figured out the key to accessing levels, and to warn others that they should think twice about purchasing this game. The good news is that I found it easy to play using the touchpad on my MacBook.
