Flush with the success of its recent movie adaptation, Minesweeper's star had never been higher in the eyes of the world. However, taking to heart the criticism that it's gameplay has been a little "flat" since the Windows 3.1 years, it began to seek a new dimension in its to hook the younger audience. One conference with foreign auteur Vjekoslav Krajacic later, and the result is Minesweeper 3D: Universe. No entry surcharge neccesary.

This is so epic. Really reminds me of the old minesweeping days, but the only one thing more difficult is that some folded areas in the 3D shapes doesn't make you know which square to choose, making you blow up half of the time on most of the harder levels.
But it was still really awesome.
The graphics were pretty neat and the music had a good feeling with everything else.

I was expecting to inspect the inside of the cube to find mines, but I was wrong.

Good game anyways.

This game is really fun and epic, I think the sequel to it should be themed food.

Intentionally didn't vote for this one. It's very well executed, but at the end of the day, it's, well, minesweeper.

Heck with this, make us a 3D Rodent's Revenge! You brought it up, now you have to do it!

And while we're at it... 3D Microsoft Bob? Anyone? No? Eh, probably for the best.

Enjoyed using the interface. Moving the cube around to check what was over the edge added [excuse the pun] an extra dimension.

One query: Say there is a mine in one of the corner cubes. Why can you only find it under one surface and not all three?

Fabulous remake. 3D really becomes this game. Great handling and tough, immersive gameplay. Even the score is well-orchestrated - suspense and all - although the music-loop is too short (for a game that takes an average 10 minutes per round). Should've been a much longer score, but otherwise the game is immaculate. Mini-Juegos caught my attention long ago and they're still good. Notice how smooth and flawless the gameplay is - a result of exhaustive testing, no doubt.

@Earl Grey
The beauty of this game is that the definition of "surrounding square" in this game can be the same as in the classic game. This definition, how I define it, is this:

another square is surrounding "this" square if and only if that other square shares a corner point with this cell.

In the classic game the number of surrounding squares can be between 3 and 8, in this game it can be between 4 and 16. (I think, counter arguments welcome).

Its the best I can do with out drawing figures of 3d cubes.

Meh. Not so great. I like the "flat" version better- the controls were easier. This color scheme makes the numbers hard to read. Why do they have to have symbols that blend into the background instead of plain and simple "1, 2, 3"?

I need to correct my self. The definition of "surrounding square" in this game can be the same as in the classic game. This definition, how I define it, is this:

another square is surrounding "this" square if that other square shares a corner point with this cell, excluding squares that are flipped upside down in orientation with respect to "this cell".

The X-wing fighter on medium level... frustrating!

@Philip

The defintion all depends on....

....whether you are digging on to a square or in to a cube.
The debate is:

  1. The interface is 3D but is the game 3D?

  2. [I think you can guess where MHO lies.]

  3. Does it matter!

  4. [Mmmmm... pedant city. The interface is great. I'm not sure how many people would mind. Funny things is, imagine how much more of a challenge the game would be if it was really 3D.]
