Almost anybody who has been a Windows user knows about the classic Solitaire or Minesweeper games that were included in the popular operating system. Minesweeper 3D is an attempt to move the original game into the 3 dimensions, thus adding a different perspective to the game. Although the basic rules still apply, the 3D version comes with additional challenges.
First of all, the concept of 3D means that the classic board is wrapped around a 3d object, such as a box or a pyramid. These are called fields inside the game and come in 10 different configurations.
In the original game each square could have only 8 possible neighbors (unless it was on the edge). On the 3D game, you can have anywhere from 4 to 12 adjacent squares depending on the field configuration. So do check thoroughly before tapping another square.
The interface is pretty easy to use, rotating the field is straightforward. I recommend disabling the single flag option to prevent tapping mines that were meant to be flagged. The game can also be played in landscape mode, which is more comfortable.
There were no bugs as far as we could see. The ads are only present in the menu, leaving more real estate to the actual game. They do however overlap with titles such as “Choose a field”.
A simple but fun game for all ages. If you enjoyed Minesweeper, you will enjoy Minesweeper 3D.
The paid version which is only 0.99 USD doesn’t offer any other incentive except removing the ads so if you want to support the developers then consider buying it.
