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.

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?

do not believe what the image says - this is not for KINDLE DEVICES - the new kindles do not accept active content like this game- so if you enjoy these types of active content do NOT BUY A NEW KINDLE - this game/puzzle will not work on it - the game is great but the NEW KINDLES SUCK!

"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.

Upgraded from Kindle Keyboard to the Paperwhite...yeah!!! Several of my favorite games are NOT available on the Paperwhite...Boooooo! Most games are available on the Kindle Touch, why not the Paperwhite; only difference is one has an internal light the other does not? Developers, "get with it"!!! Make our favorite games available for the Paperwhite as well!

I really love finding downloads for my Kindle that are free from Amazon. Just about everyone has heard of or played Mine Sweeper at one time in their lives (well, maybe not young kids these days). It's nice that it was offered on the Kindle, which makes it very easy to take the games you love to play with you anywhere you go. It's nice that the game offers three levels of easy, medium, and hard, and it still is a fun game to play. I would recommend this if you want to take a break from that book you are reading. This game is similar to the Mine Sweeper version you play on your computer, and has pretty much the same functionality. If you love all of these old computer games, you can't beat this free version to download!
