CNET Editors' review
Minesweeper is right up there with solitaire as a classic time waster. But if you think you mastered Minesweeper in middle school, think again; Minefield 6D takes the popular strategy game and adds several more dimensions. Although it uses the same basic gameplay as traditional Minesweeper, it takes a while to wrap your head around it, and it will challenge you in a way that Minesweeper never has.
The game's interface is plain, looking quite similar to the original Minesweeper with a slightly different color scheme. Since we weren't sure exactly how Minefield 6D worked, we started with the tutorial, which is extremely thorough--maybe a little too thorough. If you've somehow made it this far in life without playing Minesweeper, you're in luck; this tutorial will describe how to play the original Minesweeper in painstaking detail. Once that's done, it moves on to explain the multidimensional format of Minefield 6D. Visually, it just looks like several minefields adjacent to one another, but you are supposed to think of them as though they are stacked on top of one another. In other words, not only do you have to worry about the mines that are on each side of a particular square, you also have to worry about mines that may lurk above or below. It will probably make more sense once you start playing, although it took us a while to really feel like we understood exactly what was going on. Minefield 6D provides minefields for players at every level, with options for 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, and 6D, and options for easy, normal, and hard at each dimension. Overall, we found Minefield 6D to be quite challenging and fun, and we recommend it for anyone who enjoys Minesweeper and is ready for the next level.
Minefield 6D comes as a ZIP file. It's accessible after extraction with no need for installation.
Figure out locations of the bombs on the field. You never thought the field can be 3-dimensional, 4-dimensional or even 6-dimensional. Three interactive tutorials and a smart system of cell-highlighting will help you survive your search for bombs.
What's new in this version: Version 1.15 allows to change the size of tiles, adds various graphical styles, and improves the auto-save feature.

"Takes mine-sweeper strategy to a new level."
Version: Minefield 6D 1.10
This game has many different modes of play ranging from the classic 2-D mode to a 10-D mode It really makes you think.
Some of the higher difficulties can't completely fit on the screen, thus making play nearly impossible.
"This Minesweeper clone made my brain hurt"
Version: Minefield 6D 1.7
Well, it's Minesweeper, but in multi-dimensional space. Never thought it could be that difficult. I managed to solve it ith 4 dimensions, but with 6 dimensions it was inhumanly hard. The good thing is that the game helps you to play by marking cells where the bombs can be.
Version: Minefield 6D 1.3
The concept is great, but the overall gameplay lacks.
Lost and confusing, really hard to understand
"Nice idea, but very confusing"
Version: Minefield 6D 1
Seems like a decent idea about having differnt tables of minefields stacked up against each other. Has a nice feature of showing where possible bombs are when you highlight a number.
Unfortunatly this game is very, very confusing. The help file is a simple txt file, with no pictures and the description of how to play it is less than adequate. Maybe a tutorial with pictures should be made for it.
