How To Become The Ultimate Minesweeper
You play Minesweeper on a grid of unmarked squares. An easy game has 81 squares hiding ten mines; a medium game has 256 squares hiding forty mines; and a hard game has 480 squares hiding ninety-nine mines.
To start the game, you make a random guess by taping an unmarked square. That square, and possibly some adjacent squares, are replaced with numbers indicating how many mines touch that square.
Using math and proximity, you have to find and tap another unmarked square which doesn’t hide a mine. The unmarked square will be replaced with more numbers which help you find more mines. You have to keep searching until you uncover the numbers under every unmarked square.
But be careful: if you guess wrong and tap a hidden mine, you lose.
To help you keep track of which mines you’ve discovered, you can place a flag on unmarked squares indicating they contain hidden mines.
If you get stuck, press the hint button. The app will automatically check the flags that you’ve placed and tell you if you flagged a mine incorrectly. If all of your flags are correct, it will flag the location of a hidden mine for you.
Keeping you entertained are the game’s excellent graphics (which look incredible on retina displays) and fun sound effects.
