If you're a classic Minesweeper fan, then you'll probably love this as it gives you the chance to take on friends head-to-head and over the net.
MineSweeper features four levels ranging from beginner to expert and features all the classic graphics and gameplay of the original. Probably the most fun is the 4 player mode which challenges you to find all the flags, avoiding the bombs with the one who gets blown up the least the obvious winner. This mode is called "Hotseat" mode and is just as much fun with 2 players as 4. The best thing of all however is that you don't have to have any friends around to enjoy it - simply go to the master server list and with the IP address of your opponent, you can play directly against them. In the multiplayer versions, there are special features too such as bombs, random bombs, time limits and power-ups. There isn't much option skin wise although you can choose from Land based or Sea based skins. There's also an optional game log feature which saves records of each game. Plus, if you've never played Minesweeper before, there are comprehensive instructions at the beginning.
A superb version of Minesweeper which best of all, doesn't require anyone physically next to you to enjoy - just play against someone online anytime!
