    Fun, but sensitivity is annoying. You will go to mark a flag and it reads it as a single touch. Frustrating when you are near completing the board.

    Sad to keep my WP7 phone around so I can keep a better version of the game around. Apparently someone wanted to try their hand at developing a new version for WP to act like 1995 desktop version and be more likely to generate ad revenue (from accidental clicks)! The better version was But that version is not WP8 compatible (which could lead to another discussion.) "By hook or by crook..." By fail and UNINSTALLING !

    It's a downgrade compared to winphone 8 version.

    This is poor. There are no other words. The UI spends way too much time in animations and there are ads in the playspace. Also it does a bad job of revealing tiles by clicking on numbers. Old one was better. Seriously though my best time on 16x16 is about 48 seconds on android. Here I barely break a minute. Game is so slow!

    Sometimes it crashes but it's good

    Super Irresponsive touch lags and misses, particularly near screen edges. Not always 100% sure where touch will register. For minesweeper that's a no go. Plus ads are a bummer...

    I loved to play this on old Windows, but this version is slow and buggy. A classic killed.

    Heats phone and battery drain.
