Product Description

Do you enjoy puzzle games? With Mine Sweeper you must use your deductive powers in a race against time to quickly clear a minefield.

The objective of Mine Sweeper is to find all of the mines that are hidden on the game grid. When you uncover a location on the grid, the number of mines adjacent to that location is revealed. The game ends when you have successfully identified all the mines and uncovered all the unoccupied locations - or, when you inadvertently uncover a location that contains a mine. The clock is ticking, so challenge yourself to go faster and faster with each game.

The Kindle version of Mine Sweeper contains 3 different grid sizes for various levels of difficulty and thousands of different puzzles for almost endless variety. If you are new to Mine Sweeper, turning on "Tips" will provide helpful hints to get you started.

Exercise and challenge your deductive powers with Mine Sweeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Addictive Game October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
I really didn't need this - while not as addictive to me as the Kindle version of Scrabble (at least not yet)- after playing it several times I see it as yet another thing that is going to take me away from reading on my Kindle <sigh>.

If you are familiar with the Windows version of Minesweeper, you will quickly grasp how to play as they are very similar. Mark where you think a mine is with the "A" key and click the 5-way button to expose the block to see if you are correct or not. I failed a few times by pushing the wrong key, but that was my fault and not the game's fault.

I'm glad to see Amazon is easing us in to the apps world with these free offerings, and wonder what will be next? Hey, this is free - why not download it and try it today?

I have been a MineSweeper aficionado for many years, so I was naturally skeptical to see that there was an implementation of MineSweeper for the Kindle. Without a touchscreen or mouse interface, could the game be as playable as I always remember it in Windows? I can assure you that the game is not only playable, but quite enjoyable.

There are 3 levels-easy, medium, and hard-each of which picks the number of squares. Squares get much smaller on the hard setting, but they are still quite easily visible. You use the 5-way switch to move around the screen and select squares to look for mines. Just like in classic MineSweeper, you will get a number indicating the quantity of surrounding mines. You can use the "A" key to mark suspect mines or push "A" twice for a question mark. If you have marked all suspect mines, you can also click "Z" on an already revealed number to automatically check all surrounding mines. If you've marked the suspect mines correctly, all of the squares around the number will be instantly "clicked". This "Z" feature makes gameplay a lot faster on a device without any sort of pointable interface (like a mouse or touchscreen). It's a great idea and addition to the gameplay.

The game also loads fast and seems to be very stable so far---no crashes or hangups on my Kindle3.

Amazon is offering this game for free, but I would gladly pay a few bucks for it as well. Definitely worth the download!

3.0 out of 5 stars But for the Kindle cursor... October 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
Okay folks. If you like playing Minesweeper on your PC, you will recognize this game when you get it for your Kindle. The operations are the same and it can be just as challenging.

If you have any hopes of besting your PC times at any of the levels, you will be disappointed. Using the dreaded cursor on the Kindle, it takes a bit to move around. Of course, an added element of excitement comes into play because you never know when the Kindle is going to interpret a cursor "move" as a cursor "push" blasting you out of existance.

Not as much fun as EveryWord but it is a free download so you can't beat that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Chanelle December 30, 2010
This a very addictivr game. Good graphics and easy to use. The only problem (whch is huge) its starts lagging big time in the middle of the game. it is very frustrating. The glitch lasts for about a minute then it stops. If that could be fixed then it would get five stars because I love thegame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good October 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
To be honest, I'm not a huge minesweeper fan. However, since it was free, I decided to give it a try anyways. I think that I'm actually beginning to enjoy minesweeper.

This game is a huge improvement over the built-in minesweeper game (alt shift M) It has 3 different game modes and keeps track of your fastest time for each. The "quick reveal" button makes the game more accessible for a Kindle keyboard.

My one complaint is that it can get somewhat laggy in the middle of a large game, which can be frustrating when trying to beat a previous time.

When my husband started playing this game, everything on my kindle loaded slower. He tried to load it last night and the kindle locked up, I had to perform a hard reboot to get my kindle back. I deleted it!!
Play this game on your pc!

The actual game is fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cumbersome But Fun - Recommended October 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
"Mine Sweeper" for the Kindle is a fairly good, playable version and the price is right (free as of this writing). This plays like the PC version, where you move the cursor around a grid with the Kindle joystick (which can be cumbersome) and clicking to reveal open spaces around mines. The object is to flag the mines without detonating the mines by clicking on them, there are hints provided with the number of mines shown around any adjacent cell. The easy level is very easy, assuming you don't click on mine the first time. There are three difficulty settings and the high scores (fastest times) are retained.

This is not a very exciting game and there are certainly better ones on other handheld systems but this one is on the Kindle (which I usually have with me) and it is free, which makes it very convenient and a very good value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Basic but addictive...crippled by a major bug though February 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a basic but clean implementation of MineSweeper that is very addictive to the point that I'm starting to wear out the A and Z keys on my Kindle! Unfortunately, it's crippled by a major bug that causes the responsiveness of the game to suddenly slow way down for about a minute, thereby making it impossible to get a decent time on the hardest level. I'm really surprised that a fix for this hasn't been released yet...if you play for speed then prepare to be frustrated until it is. Email the developers at and insist they do something about it!

Please note that the below words are not meant to be critical, they are a mere food for thoughts.
As a European, I am somewhat dissapointed that the most simple games available for Kindle users oversees, such as Sudoku, word and solitaire games, nothing special - just a few brain teasers and time... Read More
