    "Perfect for what it is"

    June 12, 2007   |   By TheoCryst

    Version: Mine Swept 1.46

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It's a basic game of Minesweeper. Nothing complicated, no flashy graphics or sound, just the game. Good stuff, and a fun way to kill time.

    "So-so"

    December 12, 2006   |   By gslusher

    Version: Mine Swept 1.46

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Simplicity is, perhaps, the major selling point of this game. It is fairly ugly and amateurish, but it works nicely. There are much nicer-looking minesweeper-type games like Dangerous Mines that have exceptional graphics, sound effects, and a variety of games. They are not free, however.

    None beat an old OS 7 game whose name I cannot remember. It had levels of difficulty and progressive play--level after level, with increasing difficulty. The puzzles were NOT rectangular, for the most part. You had multiple lives and could earn lives through scoring and bonuses. (It was NOT Manic Minefields, which had teenager-style graphics.)

    "not bad, not great"

    October 03, 2006   |   By J Jonah Jamieson

    Version: Mine Swept 1.45

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Unlike the developer, I will complain about this version. First the good: nice sound effects-- the chime, even the batteship sounds. The not-so-good: I guess I'm used to the smilie that you can easily click on to start a new game, rather than having to pan over and click on "new game", which is a bit boring in itself. How about a Risk-style cannon or something to click on instead? Most importantly, one should be able to click on surrounding numbers once it's clear where the mine is, in order to expose empty spaces. This version is tedious in that regard, where you have to click on each square separately. I prefer the classic-looking minesweeper widget at this time, but the sound effects on this one increase the rating by a star.

    "Good Game"

    April 10, 2006   |   By 03RubinM

    Version: Mine Swept 1.42

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I am a connoisseur of minesweeper games, and this is the one I choose to play. It's not flashy, it's not high tech, it's just minesweeper. What I like is that you can make the boxes big, turn off the sound, and it's perfect. It's small and easy to use. I recommend it.

    Very poorly done copy of another game. No color and can't expand to the screen. A big disappointment to me as I was expecting better. Sorry I pass!

    "Fun game"

    December 04, 2005   |   By Westside guy

    Version: Mine Swept 1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Minesweeper is a simple yet fun game almost all of us have played at one time or another. Mine Swept gets it right - it works pretty much exactly like the Windows game that inspired it, and doesn't try to "improve" on the fundamentals of the game we all know.

    "Thanks for a fine version of the classic"

    July 15, 2004   |   By davearn2000

    Version: Mine Swept 1.01

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Runs fine. Excellant version of the classic. Proof that simple is best. It would be nice if a user could select to make the size of the squares larger, as the individual boxes are a bit tiny for my old eyes ... Thanks for the freeware!

    "Pretty good"

    July 15, 2004   |   By kjb525_dotmac

    Version: Mine Swept 1.01

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Works pretty much as I expected it to, although there is one small annoyance. In other minesweeper-type games I have played, your game can't be over on the very first turn; in this one, I frequently encounter a bomb the very first tile I click on.
