A classic Puzzle in a Whole New Shape! Planet Minesweeper takes the classic timewasting gameplay of Minesweeper and wraps it around a spherical planet!
"looks awesome, even to a person who's already played Minesweeper for hundreds of hours. That’s precisely the same old good game, but with the HD graphics and spherical (aka planet-like) gameplay field. Find mines, flag them, take a guess and die horribly. Fun, fun time."
"A brilliant take on an old classic... A brilliant challenge, but easy to get into if you’re waiting for the train or just have some minutes to kill....the game provides a challenge, and is very entertaining. It’s also great to see such a classic game being taken to new levels!"

Ratings and Reviews
This is a great minesweeper game with one major flaw when speed is the name of the game.
A quick tap to flag and then a drag to navigate somewhere else is interpreted as a double tap. This very annoying. You have to tap and wait for the flagging animation to complete and then drag, which really kills the speediness nature of the game.
One possible suggestion is limiting the hit target area of the double tap to only cover the cell being double tapped. Any second touch/tap outside that cell shouldn't be considered as a double tap. Just please and very plz do something about this.
Other than that this is an absolutely great game. (Maybe add a global leaderboard?)
I could not believe how big some of the maps are. This game very fun to play. The sphere is more natural to play on. I hate to write anything bad about such a cool game, but I must point out a minor glitch that does not effect my game play but is noticeable. The map will suddenly spin to a random place as I am about to uncover a space. Only happens 1 out of 50 times. This game is a definite buy for a true minesweeper fan.
Best Minesweeper app in the app store, but still needs work.
*Great Graphics and art design.
*Unique twist on a classic, unlike many of the cheap minesweeper knock-offs out there.
*Despite the work the developer has put in towards resolving it, the controls can be finicky at times and result in a lot of accidental losses.
*The information text and icons in-game are heavily anti-aliased and low-res, looking pretty bad against the otherwise outstanding graphics.
*The gloss on the buttons in the main menu makes them look somewhat cheap and plasticy looking.
*No sound effects, and not a whole lot of feedback either, making both winning and especially losing feel anti-climactic.
*No pause button?
...also, an option to disable the tap-and-hold menu would be nice, as it just gets in the way for me.
