Minesweeper Q game for iOS [Review]

by Zaib Ali on December 4, 2011

If you have ever had a Windows PC then you might have played Minesweeper game on it. The game used to come installed on Microsoft Windows and i never knew how to play it. But if you are not like me and would like to enjoy the good old Minesweeper on your iPhone or iPad then you can download it right now from the App Store. Minesweeper Q features same experience as classic Minesweeper game on Windows and the visuals are exactly same too.

The UI of the game is very simple, you have a menu button, score bar, and new (reset) button at the top of your screen right below the status bar. You can change the gameplay modes of the game as it comes with two modes named Normal mode and Quick Flagging mode.

Minesweeper Q features a very fast interface and you can quickly tap on blocks you think consist of numbers instead of mines. You have to know the basics of the game to succeed, otherwise you will end up blowing mines. You can flag blocks if you think they have mines in them so that you don’t end up tapping on them accidentally, you can do this by tapping and holding with your finger for a few seconds.

Minesweeper Q also features sound effects that you can turn off at your will. The game also records highscore and other statistics of your daily gameplay. There are five different appearances to choose from including grey, blue, green, black, and snow white. I personally like the default grey one but for those who want to have something different there is a choice.

One thing i really liked about this game is that it gives you the ability to customize your game as you want. You can change the board size and number of mines for each difficulty level by going into settings.

Minesweeper Q for iPhone and iPod touch is available in the App Store for free here. iPad version of Mineweeper can be downloaded for free here. The free version of the game features advertisements, you can get rid of them for $1.99 and $2.99 for iPhone and iPad respectively through in-app purchase.
