Minesweeper is one of life's simple pleasures. It's such a basic, unflashy game, easily mastered by kids, yet addictive as ever for adults. Ivanche Minesweeper is very similar to the Windows version of the game that we all know and love, but with a few enhancements that make it even more enjoyable.

The interface is almost identical to that of the Windows version. The squares don't have quite the same 3D effect in this version, but the time, number of mines left, and smiley face are all where you would expect them to be. Gameplay is exactly the same, and Ivanche Minesweeper assumes you already know how it works, as there's no Help file. Users who've played other versions of the game will feel right at home, but they will also enjoy a few extra features. We greatly appreciated the ability to resize the window, making the intermediate and expert levels much easier to play. For users who really like to track their scores, the program shows the top three scores from each level of the game. Users can also choose from three different number styles. These aren't major enhancements, but they do make the game slightly more enjoyable. We appreciated that the creators didn't try to make over the game with a bunch of fancy but useless features.

Ivanche Minesweeper is free. It installs politely but leaves a file behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users looking for a slightly updated version of this classic game.
