Minesweeper used to be one of my favorite games. I played a lot and got pretty good at it, could solve the advanced level within a minute. But that was a very long time ago, way back to Windows 95/98 era. Since then, Minesweeper has been disappeared from the Windows system, not in Windows 7, and certainly not in Windows 10. I quite missed it. It’s a little small game that can really exercise my brain in a way even when I am taking a break.
Then a long while ago, I discovered a portable free tool that brings back the Minesweeper game on Windows 10 and I have been enjoying it very much.
However, if you are a bit tired of the traditional version of Minesweeper, how about having something very unconventional? Like a Minesweeper across Hawaii Islands?
Or a shape of elephant?
Let’s head over MultiSweeper, pick a theme and enjoy.
- Left-click to reveal the tile
- Right-click to guess mine
- Wheel to zoom
- Middle click and drag to move around the pan
- Press Z to zoom to fit, and
- Hold R to restart the level
I got to admit, it feels a bit different from the original Minesweeper game but it’s quite fun and enjoyable.
