Anyone stuck in an office cubicle or in front of a library computer with nothing to do has surely played the classic mine sweeper on PC. Uncover under which blocks the mines are hidden, based on the numbers you get when clicking on blocks. This game is a perfect little timewaster: incredibly addictive and timeless.

Mac users never really had an equivalent of the game, until it was transposed to their OS in the form of Mine Swept. This game resembles exactly the PC version (it even uses the same color values) and offers the same rules and levels. The game varies slightly in terms of controls. You have multiple clicking options to flag mines, can highlight neighbors of a square or even create your own custom minefield.

Mine Sweeper addicts who have switched to Mac will love this exact adaption of the classic game.

A cool version of the classic PC mine sweeper, for Mac, with its own set of features. It offers the following:

  • Control-click, command-click OR right-click to flag mines.
  • Uses double-click action to reveal the neighbors of a square that you think are safe.
  • Uses the same color values from the Win32 version.
  • Custom minefield settings.
  • Ability to highlight the neighbors of a square (for people with bad eyes like myself)
  • Option to show a safe square for that first move.
  • Keeps track of your best time for each of the difficulty levels.
