User reviews for Minesweeper
7.4 / 10Combined Score
Since there is so little to the game, pretty much nothing.
There's not too much to this game, so this'll be one of the shorter reviews...
This game comes free with Microsoft, which is great, but there are now also sites out there offering free Java versions that I find to be just as good, personally.
The point of the game is simple. Get every single box off the field except the mines, and you win. The scores compare how you did by how long it took you to finish the entire game. For example, finishing it in five minutes is far better than ten.
While free, it does provide it's own bit of entertainment, as it forces you to think in more ways that one. Having a line of fours, fives, etc, makes you think about how they overlap, and which one is a bomb, whic...
The game is a simple one player and has nothing that we would expect from console games and PC games in this day and age.
Minesweeper is a simple little game that is free with you buy a Windows computer. The basic idea of the game is to click on the squares and try not to click on a square with a bomb behind it. If you do click one with a bomb you die and it is game over. That is it. You go about just clicking on random squares, hoping not to die or you can plan on which square you click. The graphics are not spectacular. You just look at a lot of grey squares, some different numbers and a smilie face at the top. But you can't really make fun of the graphics. The sound is pretty awful. It is just a continous *boop* noise and a explosion noise when you get blown up. You are better off, playing with the sound turned off. Don't expect Minesweeper to take over your life but it is okay if you are really, really bored.
Nothing for basically a free game
Since there's a profile for it, I'll give it a short review. =D
Considering this game is free with Windows it isn't half bad. It's a simple thinking game that can be surprisingly fun. When you click on a square it will reveal how many mines are in the adjacent squares. When you've revealed all the squares with no mines in you win. The beginner mode is fairly easy and my best time, with a bit of luck in what was revealed, is 8 seconds. The intermediate mode can usually be done at any time but difficult requires a small helping of luck. There's also a custom mode where you can design the size of the map and the number of mines on it which is handy if you don't like the standard modes. It's possible to get a one click victory with a large map and only 10 mines.
All in all there's quite a bit of entertainment to be had with this effectively free game, especially ...
